So i have been carrying one of my 3 pistols Sig 229, Fullsize kimber 1911, or my beloved fires every time glock 23. I normally carry IWB underneath a pullover hoodie or 1/4 zip sweatshirt type thing, you get the point. I have several holsters that i use anything from a galco snap on fbi cant that i use for my 1911 or a no cant slip over metal clip for the other two pistols. I have a few OWB holsters for all of them but they dont conceal all that well on me...
my question is now that its summer...how do i hide one of these pistols with just a t-shirt? or do i need a much smaller weapon like the LCP?
I have two of the galco skyops holsters but you can see that 1911 or 229 easily with the t-shirt...
what do yall think?

Dress around the gun.
In the summer I am in cargo shorts and short sleeve button down shirts. I buy button down shirts a little larger. I carry a G27 OWB most of the time with no issues.
Why Ike, whatever do you mean? Maybe poker's just not your game Ike. I know! Let's have a spelling contest!
lWB for sure. I carry my XD9sc in a Brommeland Max Con V with just a dark colored T-shirt and have no problems. Also a G-23 IWB.
Depending on the shorts, I can pocket carry the XD9sc in a DeSantis Nemesis without problems however now that I have an LCP, I imagine that will be in the pocket and the XD or Glock in the IWB.
With proper clothing and right holsters, even hot, humid summer in Missouri won't preclude you from carrying two guns let alone one big one.

I carry a full 1911 and G22 under a tshirt with out a problem. I buy tshirts one size larger. For my body type, 6'2", 230lbs the DeSantis Cozy Partner works fine.

You can carry that G23 no problem IWB in summer. As long as you dont wear super tight T-shirts.

+1 - do whatever it takes to conceal the gun you choose to carry. Whatever it takes - do that!Dress around the gun.

You've got to dress around the firearm you carry. I am about 5'10", 195 pounds...in other words, not a huge guy. For concealment, though, I tend to wear XL untucked shirts. They give me the extra room I need so that my XD9sc is hidden.
So you might consider just giving yourself a little more room in your clothing.

Get a good IWB holster and you will not have any problem concealing the gun.

I don't know that i have ever seen pants with pockets large enough to carry the XD9sc. I love my XD40sc but it's a substantial gun. The weight alone seems like it would make your pants hang on one side.Depending on the shorts, I can pocket carry the XD9sc in a DeSantis Nemesis without problems however now that I have an LCP, I imagine that will be in the pocket and the XD or Glock in the IWB.
Depends on whether or not you want to spend the money on an LCP which would be extremely easy to carry. I think a quality Tuckable holster like a crossbreed supertuck or an M-TAC with a quality gunbelt would help a lot.
