Ok, so I live in Alaska and for 9 months out of the year I wear enough to easily conceal my XD .40 (IWB). Summer is a few short months off, and believe it or not we actually can wear shorts and t-shirts. I actually wear shorts and a Hawaiian shirt.
I'm looking to get another weapon which I can carry during the summer which is smaller and easily concealable. I've looked at a S & W revolver, but I tend to prefer my auto to my revolver (I have a Dan Wesson .357 which is not much smaller than my XD).
So, I'd like to get opinions on what small auto you'd choose while wearing shorts and a Hawaiian shirt that is easily concealable and why you would choose that particular weapon.
I have talked my (much) better-half into letting me get a new gun before summer starts, so I thought I'd do the research now.
Just in case you're wondering, it now gets dark sometime aroudn 9:30 and you can still see at 10:00 PM. When the summer solstice hits here the sun won't actually go down until around 1:00 am and will rise about 3:00 am. We don't really have 'spring' here, but it is affectionately known as 'break-up'. I still have 12 inches of ice in my yard..... Gotta love Alaska!!
