    What would YOU carry in the florida heat?

    Assuming long sleeve, sweaters or heavy shirts are not an option, what would you carry in the heat of south florida? Realistically this means shorts or light pants/jeans and a t shirt. If you were in this climate year round, what gun would you carry and how? What would be the best trade off of comfort and power? I'm guessing the likely answer will be J frame, but we'll see.

    Maybe a wife beater with loose light fitting button down shirt as a cover garment.

    Portable air conditioner would be my first choice...

    For a gun, since I do not wear shorts, it would be the Shield 9 or 40 if IWB or my Ruger LCP for pocket carry. The Shield hides very well with just a T-shirt for cover.

    I carried my Glock 19 in a Brommeland Max-Con V for several days in 100-degree Miami last summer, no problems with comfort or concealment. I wiped it all down every evening. Shorts, wife-beater underneath and T-shirt as a cover garment.

    I would carry the same exact way I did all summer, even on 95+ degree days, wearing shorts, t-shirt and flip flops. Glock 23 @ 1 o'clock.

    Appendix carry works really well for me, even with just a t-shirt, just can't do tight fitting anymore, but I don't like anything tight in the summer heat anyways.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    I generally carry either my Glock 30 or S&W 6906 OWB under a loose, untucked, patterned shirt or a Duluth Trading Co. "Long-tail tee" with shorts year round--but the humidity still sucks.

    Always over a 'wife beater t-shirt', I have either a colored T-shirt or a print shirt (both hang loose).
    Either of these easily cover my IWB or OWB with a Glock-36 in it.

    I wear tropical/Cuban/bowling style shirts in the hot weather with shorts. I carry a 1911.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
