    Heat and this humidity is just awful.

    What do you guys carry and how in this hot sticky weather we been having lately? I have resorted to carrying a PF9 with a kydex cover that just covers the trigger with a cord attached in either my front pocket or a SW 642 with a barami hip grip at 3:30. Walk outside and in 5 minutes ur popping sweat from the heat and humidity...Can't wait for cooler weather to get here..
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    It's cooled off here just north of you. Into the upper 50's last night. Seems like nights are hotter than they ever were, like nothing cools off. We had a few weeks of 80's here in March, no winter to speak of. Yes, I'm happy it's cooler for now.

    Been visiting in IL. & WI. The only thing I'm carrying is my SA. It's a lousy substitute for a Glock!

    Not that Glock is perfection, but they are well-suited for hot, miserable weather.

    Kahr CW45 IWB on work days, and CZ P-01 IWB on days I'm not working.

    South-Central Montana: Its been HOT here!!! I still carry my commander-sized 1911 IWB with a shirt tucked in. I've been hauling Alfalfa bales the last week ( 1,300 lb round bales--9 on the bottom row, 3 on top row) and crawling up onto the bales to put the ratchet-straps on, sliding down off the trailer, etc and the shirt has remained tucked in with no lafalfa or grass in the gun. I too will be VERY glad when it cools down.

    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

    Was not much of a winter last time around here. Just say it cooled off.
