    Deep concealment options have my head spinnig.

    Hot weather is going to be coming on soon and shirts and shorts will be coming out. There are so many carry options( M&P shield, Beretta Nano, Kimber Solo, SA XD-S etc.) it makes my head spin. I want to choose one for summer carry, just not sure which one. Owners of any of the above feel free to weigh in(pros and cons). Help please.

    Hey Hoplyte. It's already warming up here in Houston. Have been in golf shorts more than jeans or slacks lately, today excepted. Those are all fine options but I've got to say that my M&Pc 9mm is concealing just fine with golf shorts and a CBST. Can't see it and feels great. Gives me a few more rounds than the options you mentioned. Don't worry. The spinning will stop.

    Ordered a 3 Speed. Here in Houston, I spend about 85% of the time in Drawstring shorts. It might be awhile this is my first EDC. But, I will try to get an honest review out.3 Speed Holster

    Lots of good choices so it will really boil down to personal preference. My wife carries a Ruger LC9, sister in law just got a Beretta Nano, and I have a Shield. I would recommend any of the three.

    Must be hot as crap with tactipac, the whole area is huge, will cover big part of your body and make you sweat.
    I'd rather have something on the outside so you can open quickly and draw your weapon.
    Not waist pack, they look so bad and everybody knows you have a gun

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    My Summer guns are my S&W 642 and Ruger LCP.

    Pocket carry for both in simple Uncle Mike's holsters.

    My CCW of choice is the CM9, where 'deep concealment' is the primary criterion. Where a very slightly larger gun is workable, I go with the Shield 9 - like the ergos a little better.

    I recently got a Shield 9 and a Garrett Industries IWB holster. We went out to eat lunch last Saturday and I carried wearing jeans and an untucked tee shirt with no problem. I can carry a G27 that way too though. You learn how to not print, like squatting down instead of bending over.

    I'll say it again...I love my Beretta Nano. 250 rounds so far with zero problems. It's sitting nicely in a Theis IWB hybrid holster, and it's quite comfortable. Highly recommend this combo. I gotta a PJ Holster coming in soon (I hope); when I get it, I'll review it here.

    My S&W m&p 9mm compact conceals well under a t-shirt in warm weather in a glaco king -tuk. Out of the ones you mentioned for the money Id go with the shield.

    OP- how do you intend to carry? That will drive the sidearm selection.

    Three suggestions - calibers .380, .38 special and 9mm

    Here are three deep concealment options that have worked well for me. They are a Sig P238 in a Don Hume IWB holster, a S&W 642 revolver in a DeSantis pocket holster, and a Kahr MK9 in a Comp-Tac IWB tuckable appendix holster. They are all very low profile and hide easily.

    They are all too small for my tastes. My full-sized edcs all hide nicely under a T-shirt.
