    I am looking to buy a new gun to CC. I have a 42 inch waist and am in a worm climate. I sweat sometimes and am afraid to get a blued gun because of that.
    any thoughts?

    I have a beer belly that goes in between 40" - 42". My winter carry is an OWB with a Kimber Ultra CDPII under a untucked shirt. Summer time usally means shorts and a pocket mouse.............PPK, Colt Mustang or a Model 21.

    Shucks, you guys are just little fellers! I usually run between a 48" & 5o". Ususally I will pocket carry a S&W model 60 or sometimes a Keltec PF9.

    Anything I want. The Clothes make the man here! Here are some pictures of the CCW vests I own. My wife is modeling them. I am NOT selling them or working for the company... I just like them!

    How do you expect us to concentrate on the vest when we can't get past that pretty smile on your bride?

    The vest works well enough, but as an option to a vest, or to an untucked shirt, is front pocket carry.

    Cabelas sells Cargo shorts and pants that work for front pocket carry...even on my ample girth.

    Everything from a Kel-Tec P3AT to a Glock 19 just disappears.

    JD0608: Just Google the brand names and see what kinda price ya can get.

    As to my bride, we have been married 27 years as of 7:30 PM today. I have NO Idea how she puts up with me! I will tell ya, she is MUCH better with a pistol than I am too! I suck these days, but at my best, I was pretty good but she was/is better on aimed target type shooting.

    In winter it is really easy, I would just put a Jframe in a coat pocket.

    Summer a little more tricky, but I am sure I could conceal a 4' Model 15 if I tried.

    I'm large enough so that I don't like to carry IWB. I carry a Airweight J frame in my front pocket. At only 15 oz. I can carry all day without a problem. That is best for me. give it a try, you will probably like it... In the winter the same revolver in the same pocket holster gets transferred to my coat pocket.

    OK - I qualify - do I win a twinkie ! LOL

    No waist carry for me as I am two big round - you got some grow'n to do to catch up.

    I pocket carry a small frame snub revolver. 13oz's of Taurus to be exact, in titanium and .32mag caliber. Works great for me anyway, and low maintenance - I do use a pocket holster most of the time.

    For a small, cheap, easily concealable revolver, don't forget the NAA Mini in .22 mag. Is it as powerful as a .357? No. Would I want to get shot by one? Heck No!!!

    You can get one for less than $300 with a cylinder for .22 mag and .22 LR

    I am a 38" waist and pocket carry a S&W 340PD. Once we get into fall weather it is a G19 until summer in an IWB.

    I weigh 185 wear size 40, and live in Arizona, (think Satan's vacation spot) and although I do not currently do so now, I have carried a Taurus 605 (.357mag) in the front pocket.

    What I do carry is a Kahr MK9 in a DeSantis Nemesis pocket holster, although I've given more than one thought to pulling the revolver out of the safe again!!

    I'm about 6 ft, and 300 lbs.

    I carry a Colt Commander, a Glock 19, or a Smith & Wesson Model 19. Just depends on what I want to carry that day. Usually the Colt.

    I carry a 296 or 642 in a Mika's pocket holster. The 296 fits ~75% of my pants - mainly cargo & jeans, the 642 so holstered fits everything. I wear 44 pants.

    I don't care how large they are, people shouldn't carry while they're wasted.

    I know all about fat guy carry, I'm 6' and 250 pounds. I typically carry an XD45 compact IWB but this is really only an option in colder climates. For the rest of the year I carry a P232 and I'm buying a P3AT soon for pocket carry.

    They say IWB doesn't work for fat guys but I prefer to just carry at around the 4 or 5 o'clock position
