    Getting warm here in Ga....the warm weather guns should be out soon

    It's 88 as I type this here in mid-west GA. I think my G26 will be staying out as my EDC and the G19 goes into reserve(aka the safe) until it cools down. The SP101, like a good utility infielder, is always ready to pinch hit for one of the Glocks as EDC. My G19 slide is at Novaks getting new Lo-Mounts so she may rejoin her frame and get a well-deserved break. Is anybody else dusting off their warm weather carry?

    I don't change weapons from season to season. That never made sense to me. Oh, wait--we don't have seasons here.

    I carry a 5" 1911 OWB year around.
    I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.

    I carry Two Snub Revolvers every day all day. It doesn't matter if I'm home in crappy Clevand Ohio Weather or spending the Winter in South Florida. You gotta dress around the gun. This Winter I lived in shorts and T-shirts and carried my SP101 and LCR357 or S&W442 and LCR357. In addition to the Two guns I carry a Multi Tool, Flashlight, Pepperspray, Speed Loaders, Wallet, Money Clip, Phone, extra Battieries for the light, and earplugs. All day every day. No problems.

    Nope. Typically the bad "element" is out in more robust numbers during the longer, warmer days. I think downsizing in the summer when I am also more places, more often is a bad idea. Wolves travel in packs.

    Everything was in the cargo shorts or on the belt. With a T-shirt worn out of the pants, I carried that stuff all over Florida. I never got a second look. I just blend in with all the other Snowbirds.

    Had frost on the windshield this morning, but the snow cover in the woods is under 50%. We're heading in the right direction, but I can still conceal an Oxford dictionary under these layers.

    The CZ75 compact has been carried recently.

    Yep. Its pretty much always hot. We have 3 months of "winter". It gets cool some days, cooler others. Every now and again, we have warm spells in winter where its warm enough to go to the beach, go into the pool, etc, and is a high in the 80s in December/January.

    I just carry whatever my clothing permits.
