I carry the same guns year around.

I carry the same setup all year, I don't like the idea of changing my carry guns unless I get a new one.
One or more of the following generally apply:
- S&W Shield on the waist
- S&W 642 on the ankle
- Taurus 738 in the pocket
I don't change guns for temp or season. Darn sure don't change brands. One trigger pull type and grip angle.
Same carry gun all year around for consistency of trigger, etc. Tucked IWB for all occasions except at home and for yard work there.

2. The American Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine, and Coast Guardsman.
One died for your soul, the other for your freedom!
The other day it was 90 degrees outside. My wife said "why do you have on two t-shirts?" I said "because my gun digs into my skin if I don't". She said "how can you stand that", I said "being a little hotter than normal is worth it to protect you and the kids". 1911 IWB all year long.
Besides, when it gets hot down here, you will be just as hot naked as with clothes on.
M&P 45c In a crossbreed super tuck everyday and all seasons.

I always carry a Springfield XD 45 compact. Occasionally if I am just running to the corner store in our sleepy mountain town, I'll throw a .38 spl Ruger LCR revolver in my pocket.
