      Concealing a weapon in the Florida heat

      What do you guys do to conceal in the florida heat? I am in the process of getting my permit, and need to decide. Dan

      P99 strongside Fobus paddle, on loose cargo shorts. Mags in cargo pockets. Loose shirt on top. Sandals.

      Been lazy and should pick up a Fletch one of these days.

      Thumbs up

      I just use a long tail shirt wearing it out like the rest of these old geesers. I pack a m-36 on a belt slider or a 1911 IWB. Nobodys ever said anything that I know of.

      The front pocket of my cargo shorts hold my NAA 380 in a Nemesis pocket holster nicely. The outside pouch pocket hides it even more. Don't forget to wear a belt!

      Phoenix AZ. MUCHO heat not so much humidity.

      Jeans or shorts, tank t-shirt and an IWB with a 4 1/4" 1911.
      I can cover it with a T-shirt when wearing a Sky Ops or a USA (both by Galco of course) or a Royal Guar/Summer Comfort/shoulder holster under an open Hawaiian/dickies shirt.

      I grew up in south Florida so I know what you are dealing with. You can almost watch the rust form on metal. Keep it clean and well oiled and the Fobus idea sounds good to me. IWB might be a bit swetty.

      Something small and stainless carried in a SmartCarry rig for very deep concealment. Front pocket or IWB for other times.

      I carry a Colt Combat Commander in .45 ACP, Satin Nickle finish, in a IWB. All of my shirts are the type that can be worn untucked. As for the heat and persperation.... eh, you get used to it.

      P-3AT Right rear/front pocket of anything in an Uncle Mikes #2

      or

      XD9SC or XD45 4" IWB with an untucked shirt in anything with a belt...

      For the "new to carry" guys... When was the last time you noticed a "suspicious bulge" in another guy's waist band... DIDN'T THINK SO.

      People will NOT notice, and in FL??? Hell one in ten guys over 40 are carrying... (almost)

      Stick with dark colors and prints... White shirts PRINT.

      Since I started this thread, I got my CCW, and carry my 637 in my right front pocket, in a simple pocket holster. I am so used to it now it is like grabbing my wallet. Cant beat these little J frames for concealment. Dan

      I bumped up to the 4" XD45 Compact IWB when I'm not in "Mr Ward" attire (shirt and tie). When I'm in the office in a security protected/patroled building, in a high-end neighborhood... it's currently off-body-carry of the same XD45C in my briefcase, under my desk.

      When I'm dressed lightly, it's still the Kel-Tec, right rear pocket, or my modified Cargo shorts...




      I sewed a line of tan thread from the bottom center of the cargo pocket, up to where the trigger guard meets the grip. Similar stitch up the front edge of the left pocket for a spare mag. PERFECT. $18 shorts. $1.89 thread...
