I now live in the Piney Woods area after spending 15 years in New Orleans. While it's way too hot to do much cavorting this time of year, I think New Orleans was worse. Remember that old saying, "It's not the heat, it's the humidity"!!
Come back up in Oct/Nov or Mar/Apr, the weather's much nicer and you can get by without that vest getting too hot to wear. You might even want to bring a light jacket.

SASHAYING Miami Style---not to be seen in Texas, I hope!
Never saw that in TEXAS but I saw some sweetie over on South Beach (Sobe) strut down the sidewalk once with a distinct lisp: Thay there, do you like my Thath Thay, Thweetie?

Well, I live and work in Houston, which is kind of a swamp in Texas. It gets very hot and exquisitely humid for most of the year. I think that the only way you can get away with wearing a vest of any type is if you couple it with shorts, loose light shirt, hat, and a lot of A/C exposure. I wear a t-shirt and jeans (not only for the heat, but because I try not to advertise my carry). I have a gov't 1911 in a leather IWB, with a spare mag in a horizontal pouch on my belt. Plastic doesn't breathe enough, and you get really hot and sticky where you wear it. Shoes make a huge difference; sandals can really help. I love my boots, though, and only wear something else if I cannot stand the heat.
It is definitely a challenge to balance the heat and the firepower. btw, I also advocate having a dedicated "dashgun" that you can keeo in your glove compartment. You do not have to worry about concealability much, and you can likely get to it faster than something on a belly band under a shirt and fastened seatbelt. It also gives you a New York reload.
It also occurs to me that you may have overloaded on ammo. Having a spare is one thing, but a box and a half of ammo plus assorted mags is just plain heavy. Then again; maybe I am just a wimp who doesn't like to carry heavy stuff.
I hope you enjoyed your foray here into Texas.
Y'all come back now, y'hear?
