    It is difficult for me to conceal it well during the summer due to my body size. I am going to have to get something different for everyday carry.
    mikaldulee - don't be beaten - that is too good a gun to give up just cos of summer.

    Don't change gun - alter dress to suit - it can be done. Regardless of what folks think of vests - I use a Smith & Alexander during summer and it is great over my 226. I am 6.00 and 210 so a bit taller and heavier but hey - don't downsize if avoidable.

    I understand what you are say P95Carry. Mtrapper gives me the same advice(he is also about your size). As to the P229, I really think highly of it. It is a great weapon, very well made and I trust it 100%. I looked into a P239, but it didn't work for me.

    I work on an automobile assembly line and loose or baggy clothing is a work hazard. Unfortunately, my work is also posted and has rather draconian shop rules. Outside of the plant, I use a light jacket or sweaters now that fall is here so it isn't an issue right now. In summer, I was carring a P64, but I didn't like firing it(painful), so I sold it.

    Missouri summers are very hot and extremely humid. I'll figure something out.

    Summer carry with a P-229 is a piece of cake. Buy some Hawiian shirts and be done with it. I find it more of a chalange to carry in winter than summer.
    Take Care,

    I agree. For someone not on an assembly line or someplace where loose clothing could get you hurt, hawaiian shirts do work.

    My carry piece for the less secure areas is a Sig 229 in 357sig. I use either a Highnoon Slide Guard belt holster or a Highnoon Closing Argument IWB holster depending on the clothing and situation. The 229 was my first Semi-auto and it has been a great weapon.
