    Simple Carry Pleasures

    I have always enjoyed getting into bed in the winter time to a set of cold sheets. Just this morning I realized that when I strap on my gun in the morning it is kind of the same feeling. It take my XD about ten mins to start to warm up to my body temp. Now in the winter when I leave it in the car and it is 5 degrees outside the It takes a little bit too long to warm up and is not as enjoyable.

    Call me crazy but...I prefer warm sheets in the winter and cool sheets in the summer. I don't like my carry gun touching my skin.

    I guess my question is why are you leaving your gun in your car? Either have it on you, or take it in the house and lock it up.

    I just moved to FL in December, so it has been AC and ceiling fan for me ever since I got here. I was hot in January...I'm gonna hate it this summer...

    Cool sheets in the winter!? What are you mad! I always have a tucked-in under shirt on when I carry. The bare metal on my skin annoys the crap out of me.

    I am a full time college student and I work at a place that does not allow concealed carry. I end up with a lot of situations where I am not allowed to carry and locking it in my car is the only alternative to just leaving it home.
