    I think you just found the solution for BigJim's dilemma.

    Being in Florida, where it is usually always hot, I carry a Colt Combat Commander in ( Satin Nickle Finish) .45 ACP in a IWB holster.

    I have advised my wife that when she buys me a shirt, that it is always one that I can wear untucked, so it will cover my Commander.

    I have found that it carrys well in a IWB and have no problem keeping it "concealed".

    Gives me a sense of satisfaction feeling that .45 ACP on my 3 o'clock!!

    well since I live in south florida I've found that the best way for me is to have my sc XD 9mm 10+1 with a glaco leather iwb at about 2 o'clock. On long trips in the car I normally have it in the center counsol.

    you know what helps alot is if you buy your jeans one size bigger. 36 fits me perfectly but I have the old lady buy them in 38's It fit my gun like a glove.

    +1 on the 2 guns except I have IWB for XD .45 and pocket for .380 LCP

    Well I answered my own question.....

    I bought a Galco U.S.A holster for my Bersa Thunder 380 and it hides perfectly under my spare tire.

    I plan on buying the same holster for my Sig 228 once the weather starts to cool down.

    I chose four options.

    I prefer to carry a larger caliber (.357-.45acp) gun OWB when possible. Usually one of these four.



    I will also carry smaller guns in smaller calibers (.380acp-9mm) when I need something a bit smaller or thinner than my normal guns for OWB carry. Usually one of the three below. I will also take that Seecamp .380 (I chose mouse gun in a pocket even though it is a .380acp and not a .32acp) and carry it in a wallet holster when I cannot conceal a belt holster.



    I also quite often carry a gun in a fanny pack in hot weather, when riding my motorcycle, or hiking. I use the Blackhawk Weapon Pack pictured below. I do not consider it a "nerd pouch" but I do sometimes feel (after catching a glimps of myself in a store window as I step out of my F-150 with my fanny pack, short hair, and Birkenstocks) That I should probably put a "Lesbian and Proud" bumper sticker on my truck.

    I carry 24/7 except for on the job. Around home I'm concealed, but more relaxed. Winter usually OWB under a jacket depending on weather. If I'm going to a restaurant and might take off the jacket it will be IWB with tucked or untucked shirt. Sometimes I carry crossdraw in winter or both strong side/crossdraw IWB/OWB. Summer is IWB only under untucked shirt mainly, but I've tucked them in before over the G27. I've got 9mm, 40 S&W, and 45ACP pistols. All of them see carry at one time or another. Hope I answered some of your questions. By the way--the top photo was a quikie-----I do have a quality 1 1/2" and 1 1/4" thick leather belts for carry.

    I agree completely on that one. I wear boots about 50% of the time, which forces pocket carry on those days. The ankle rig just doesn't work well with boots. Galco does make a boot extension with my ankle rig of choice, that I'm considering. Anybody have experiences with those?

    I carry a S&W model 640 (.38 Special) in a pocket holster most of the time. Sometimes I do carry my Glock 19 in either an OWB or IWB holster.

    Thumbs up

    So far I have a ruger gp100 4'', blued, in an IWB holster and can carry it wearing shorts and a t-shirt with no worries of printing. I'm waiting on some O.T. at work to adopt a glock 27, we'll see who gets more attention once the new one is home...

    Normally a Smith & Wesson 38 caliber revolver in an owb holster. My favorite carry weapon is a 3" model 64. I also like the 642 and the model 60. I have other handguns that I will carry including a number of pistols but I always seem to come back to a 38 caliber smith.
