    Yep, here in Florida, with our harsh winters, we're usually bundled up pretty heavy...a long sleeve t-shirt is enough for all but the coldest days, and a fleece jacket serves for those.haha

    But really, unless I was defending myself from a Tlingit in a blizzard, I cant see my carry round being an issue, or any other quality 147gr JHP for that matter.
    As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper

    Good, it's always a good day when I expose someone to something they didn't know about.

    Not necessary here in NC, we don't have that much really cold weather. I carry 124 gr. +P Gold Dot in my nines and 230 gr. Gold Dot/HST in my .45's.
