    I live in Houston, so it's hot/humid/wet and a tough place for concealment.

    For jeans, slacks I use a Tucker Cover-Up with my shirt tail tucked in. This is for a Glock 26. I really like Tuckers products.

    For shorts and T-shirt I use a Safe Carry.

    Thanks, gamboolman...

    ITP-3 from www.hoffners.com After experimenting with many different IWB holsters, I stumbled onto these and haven't looked back.

    Any form of the Yaqui belt slides work best for me....I can acquire a full hand grip coming from the cross-draw position.

    Don Hume H715M clip-on. Have one for every gun I even think about carrying.

    Depends. On cold days, an HBE Specialty Leatherworks Belt Holster for the PO1. A light jacket covers it, and the spare mag pouch easily.

    Warm days, which we have many more of, here in Arizona, I use a oversize t-shirt, and a Binaci M-100 IWB.

    I'll second the Milt Sparks Versa Max II. I have one for my Para Ord 12.45 that has the black shark skin trim. Don't want to get caught by the fashion police, you know.

    I use the Bianchi 105 minimalist belt slide, I have one for my 1911 and one for my PPKS. I never tuck in my shirt so concealing them is not a problem.

    No matter how hot it gets my guns disappear under a t-shirt in the McDaniel II from Andrews Leather. It hides a full size (steel) Para P14-45, a G22, etc.

    The steel mouth will NOT collapse when you draw the gun. The belt loops are interchangable for size (my casual gun belt is wider than my dress gun belt), and you can adjust the angle to fit your body/gun combo. You can have it open-top, with a body shield or thumbbreak. The most expensive is $75.

    It is the only IWB I'll use and I have five of them. Been using them since 1997.

    IWB it's a Gary Brommeland www.brommelandgunleather.com Max Con V, I have 3 of 'em and in my pocket a Sam Andrews www.andrewsleather.com pocket holster. Both are superb holstersmiths. If you do a search on them you will see a plethora of positive unsolicited opinions.

    Mad Dog Labs Taylor Thunder Bolt . This is a small light thin kydex holster that is ideal for holding my CCW autos: S&W Commander,Colt Officer's model lightweight .45 or a Glock 27 . I carry the holsters on Liger 1 1/2" belts.:)

    I really dig the Don Hume JIT holsters.

    [​IMG]

    They are inexpensive ($27 from Gunners Alley) and are well constructed. I have used one daily and noticed no looseness or excessive wear. I find they hold the gun fairly tight to your waistline, easily covered with my standard shirts.

    I use them for all my "smaller" guns......and I may try one with my 4" 1911 in the future.

    I'll agree with aaronrkelly about the Don Hume JIT, but it is my second favorite. First place goes to the Don Hume H721 OT. It rides just a little higher and both my XD SC and SP 101 can be easily covered with only a T-shirt. Now that it is a little cooler, a flannel shirt or sweatshirt makes them disappear.

    I have used them for both Beretta 92F and Glock 23 and 1911. Well worth the price. Good for summer and winter time use.
