    Winter carry and scenarios

    I was wondering in the places around the country that have cold climates and dressing for snow and cold . Do you change the way you engage people that walk by you or near you .

    I say this because people may have more places to hide a weapon or have hands in pocket . Or is it business as usual ?

    Buisness as usual. Same gun, same holster, same carry style.....because coats come off.

    I'm generally more focused when I can't see people's hands (in pockets). However, I don't think anything changes during winter as far as my SA goes.

    I don't change anything and we get some nasty weather here in Michigan. It can be 50 when you get up and 0 with a foot of snow by noon.

    Business as usual mostly. Most criminals aren't very fond of the cold.

    I don't change a thing. But one of my sons is a deputy up north He says a steel gun will suck the heat right out of you! A plastic gun warms up in your hand quickly. If I lived where it was very cold I might change in the winter. DR

    Don't change a thing, except the roving BUG goes in an outside pocket.
