    Seasonal Carry

    I live in central Florida and during the cooler fall/winter months I carry my G19 OWB with a cover garment, shirt tail, sweater, jacket, etc. During the warmer months I carry my S&W Bodyguard .380 IWB. I was curious as to how many folks switch out their CCW based on seasonal changes.

    Typically I carried my M&P40fs during the colder months and my G26 in the hotter months. But this year I picked up a Kel-Tec PF9 and WOW it's an awesome gun to hide. Not sure either one of the two will be in the rotation much anymore.

    Right now I've only carried my LCP, which is tiny enough for Tshirt and shorts carry. Hubby has a 9mm, but I don't have a holster for it and it's his gun anyway Once I have the funds, though, I'd like to get something with more punch to carry when I can afford to hide it under more layers.

    I do seasonal changes as well. I do have methods that are good for any season no matter what. Might say I change less than some with the seasons for carry. I will however use a change of season for an opportunity that isn't always available to me. But my carry never revolves around the seasons. I like to be as independent as possible with everything I am able to be.

    S&W M&P during cooler months with heavier clothing. Ruger LC9 during warm months with shorts and t-shirts. Both IWB.

    My carry gun doesn't change according to seasons (c'mon man... we live in FL... it's either hot or pretty friggin hot)... but rather depending on if I'm at work or not. Work gun has to be able to withstand constant sweat submersion and be small enough to conceal while lifting, bending over, and jumping up and around heavy equipment. This is usually a 642 in the pocket or a P238 in a hybrid holster. Off work I carry whatever the hell I want, printing be damned. Usually a 1911 or P228.

    So from what I read it’s OK to carry less gun in the summer time because it is inconvenient to carry your regular firearm.

    I for one carry the SAME gun 24/7 365

    When criminals start changing according to season, I'll change. Until then, I will carry a fighting handgun, whenever, wherever.

    G19 each and every day, regardless of rain, shine, snow, sleet, hot, mild, cold, wind, etc.....
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
