    I'm just trying to get an idea of what's your summer CCW. It seems that with popularity of the smaller guns these days everybody's shifting toward pocket carry. Are there still a few holdouts that still carry something other than the pocket rockets?

    Granted this is my first year carrying, or at least I am coming up on my anniversary. During that year I haven't noticed the bad guys getting any smaller during the warmer months so my weapon hasn't changed.

    Call me crazy and I'm not trying to open a can of worms but I would be concerned about being able to get a firm grip on a smaller pistol when sweaty and excited. I'll stick to the CABO theory, Carry A Big One or at least reasonably big.

    Ruger LCP, with Hogue Handall Hybrid rubber grip sleeve, loaded with a Buffalo Bore 90-grain +P hollow point in the chamber, and 6 FMJ rounds in the magazine with Ruger floor plate extension, in a Galco pocket holster. Fits nicely into a jeans or cargo shorts pocket. Anything bigger or heavier in my pocket would not work for me.

    Yep, here's another vote for the Ruger LCP in a pocket hoster. If i need it be really tiny I'll carry my NAA .22 LR mini-revolver.

    Kel Tec PF-9, IWB. It carries comfortably, and conceals very well.

    I plan on getting a CW9, CM9, or PPS for my next gun. When I do, I'll probably switch to carrying the new one. My PF-9 (and many others, apparently) doesn't like to eat just anything. Wrong diet = FTE. That bugs me.

    The same as my winter, spring, and fall carry. Concealed, open, or indifferently carried, it all works.

    I don't change for the season, just the occasion.

    The ones that get carried-concealed, year-round:

    S&W 637 2-1/2" bbl in a Desantis Nemesis for regular-carry on the homestead / casual knocking-about. ...or...

    S&W 5904 in a Crossbreed Supertuck out in the paved world. I have a 3913 and 908 that fit the same holster, but my 5904s really don't feel much "bigger" carried IWB. ...To me anyway.

    I also will default to a LCP in nice leather wallet holster if the situation demands lightweight dress slacks, button-down shirt, and no jacket.

    I actually got a bigger gun. Went from a 4" Sigma to a 4.25" 1911. Not much bigger, but I. Think the grip is longer. It is a lot slimmer, though
    I refer to my carry method as "concealed" carry. Meaning there's a garment over my gun, and I mostly conceal, but other times it's quite obvious I have a gun on my hip.

    Glock 27 carried in a Galco king tuck. It hides away nicely.
