The issue i have not yet faced is carring in the summer. I got my liesense just as the weather got cold last year. Now that the weather is starting to get warmer i am getting nervous about how well my pistol is concealed. I carry a sig p250 in a don hume IWB and it has worked out well so far. Iam 6'1 180 and its not so easy to conceal with just at t shirt on what are the trick i know you all have them. Suggestions are always appreciated.

Either a print/button up shirt, or a large colored t-shirt with a wife-beater-T underneath to keep leather away from skin.

1.Unbuttoned long sleeve shirt and take the heat.
2. Smaller gun, buttoned long sleeve shirt and a OWB kydex holster.
3. T-shirt sometimes with IWB
4. Fanny pac.
Dress this way:
I promise you: nobody will ever notice the gun.
Seriously... t-shirts are not that good at concealment. Button-down shirts seem to do a much better job. The shirt should be non-white or with a random print (Hawaiian).
Despite the eye injuries incurred by looking at the photo above I did notice the gun, a World War II Webley Mark IV .38/200.

I think they wanted a gun as weird as the film. Having seen the film, they did not succeed.
I was in the same boat...I got my permit while it was still cold and had no problem carrying my Springfield XD .45 Compact under a light jacket or fleece vest.
I took this as an opportunity to buy a new Glock 27 as my "summer gun". I carry in a Don Hume OWB that fits close to my side and is easy to cover with an untucked golf shirt.
I also bought a Ruger LCP that fits easily in my right front pocket. You just have to match the hardware with the occasion.
I'm 6'1" and 200lbs. DeSantis Scorpion and G19 or G27 work well for me in jeans and t-shirt.
I find that my IWB holster is the one I wear the most with my G26. I wear loose t-shirts so it's very comfortable. When it gets to 100 degrees plus I can see wearing very loose fitting clothing here in the heat of Las Vegas!

To the OP ... I went to a Sig P232 for summer carry, it coneals slightly easier than my 1911.

If your comfortable you will carry. It’s that simple for me. There are a ton of options out there and you have to find what works for you. In the summer for me it’s a Smith and Wesson 442. Can carry it a bunch of different ways and always works. Good luck.
