    I run my standard EDC (G19) the vast majority of the time. Pocketed j-frame knockin'-about in the yard, shop or around the house. Doesn't seem to vary much with the weather.

    Sometimes I will switch from a Government model to an Officers model.

    Its easier for me to conceal a Glock 20/21 size pistol wearing winter clothes, although I've carried it in the summer (100+ heat index) too.
    A Glock 19/23/32 hides easier under lighter summer clothing.
    My preference has been a primary at least Glock 30SF size or above ^ for several years.
    The minimum is not what I want to defend my life with.

    No, I have to pocket carry during the week so it doesn't change much at all.

    Not really, I prefer to carry a fighting sized gun, but some places/events I'll move to the G43 or a J Frame; A recent play at a venue that had very small seats, a ballgame that is a bit of a non-permissive environment, dinner where I need to dress, etc.

    Nope. G19 (what else is there? ) 90% of the time. Why should it make a difference whether I am wearing winter or summer clothing, easy enough to conceal.

    Pocket carry Sig P938 for dress clothes the rest of the time.

    What is winter? It cooled off to like 40 here a couple weeks ago, but was in the 80s in December. Depending on what I am wearing, I carry a G19 or a G43. The G19 doesnt get much use in the warmer months.

    I wear shorts and short sleeves all year with maybe a couple of weeks of weather requiring a long sleeved shirt.

    I carry a compact sized gun (1911 Commander, SIG P229R, Tristar C100, Glock 19) AIWB 99% of the time. The only time I carry a smaller gun is when pocket carrying.

    Same gun year around. A Police Chief friend of mine said a few years ago that "You must get one gun and get very good with it". In the past 20 or so years I did change guns due to clothing and temperature. Now it is a G-19 all the time. My body has adapted to it over time...

    The 44s and 1911s don't get carried as much during the summer, that's about it for changes.

    I find myself carrying the LCP a little more, but since I always carry OWB and wear the same shirts I don't have to switch if I don't want to. Summer apparel is where thin guns like the Shield really shine.
    Joe was right.

    After finding the Shield 9, I no longer change sidearms as my concealed EDC.

    It fits perfectly and does not print in a front pocket of my cargo shorts in warm weather. During cooler temperatures, it easily conceals in my right hip holster when I wear a sweater or jacket.

    Because my Shield loads today’s powerful 9mm ammo rather than yesteryears lesser powered ammo, I do not feel the need for .45ACP as I once did.

    I don't change for weather, but rather, generally, for location.
    Revolver locally (15%) and semi-auto on the road (85%).
