    Many of us that carry while wearing gym shorts use a Smartcarry holster.

    Welcome to my world, and the answer is yes! Been doing it here in Virginia a few days as well. Get the Smart Carry. Wore this with gym shorts, no shirt or shoes and was carrying my Glock 26. Wife could not believe I was carrying when I told her. I even wear the Smart Carry at night in my flannel PJ's.

    Smart Carry Rules

    Yep! I wear atheltic shorts and jogging pants all the time with a Smart Carry holster. Works great!

    Don't forget to give the belly bands a look also. There are a few companys that make them. They give you many postions to carry and, I feel, it is very comfortable.
    I can't comment on the Smart Carry.
    However, from what I've read, the Smart Carry will hide, even with no shirt; whereas the Belly Band you will still need a t-shirt.

    Shoulder holster, all it requires is a short sleeve button down shirt over your tshirt, works for me..

    When I wear gym shorts, I use a cheap duty belt worn under the shorts. Other times I wear the same belt with my thigh rig; but you apparently don't have that option in Florida.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    I've even used my Smartcarry at 3:00 or more behind the hip. Good option for guys worried they might shoot off their manhood.

    Depends on what you are doing in those gym shorts!! If you are running around playing basketball having a gun bouncing around on your privates will raise your voice a couple octives, the Bellyband works well for smaller guns and holds them very secure. When you CC you must compromise your mode of dress, where you go etc.... so for everything there is a trade off. You need to find what works best for you.

    You can always wear a belt and holster around your waist under the gym shorts

    My shorts I go walking in have a draw string. I use a MTAC Minatour holster for my G23 and tie the draw string tight enough and I'm good to go. Throw on a T shirt and nobody has ever noticied.

    Oh and carry at 3:00 clock and it works for PJ's too.

    When i am around the house in sweatpants or gym shorts I just use a bellyband with my glock 26. some people find bellybands uncomfortable but if you wear a t shirt under it it works well.
    I believe in gun control...... Thats why I use TWO hands.
