    Wife beater on, loose fitting T-shirt over this... http://www.fist-inc.com/holsters/holster/12.htm
    The holster with the Glock in it is just like mine...it rides high and tight.

    Keep in mind, that I always used IWB holsters because I liked the gun to hug the body and conceal easily. Then I tried an OWB holster for the heck of it...now I basically stick to the Fist #12 Basic. It hugs the body as well as any of my IWB holsters and is still easily concealed.

    I live just north of you (somewhat, kinda-sorta)........primarily the same weather. I love my MTAC and my G23 rides very comfortably (for me anyway) IWB.

    I'd recommend looking for an OWB/paddle holster with a sweatguard.

    Once it hits 105+, it's just hot, hot, hot. Doesn't matter what you do or how you dress, it's still H-O-T


    I just roll with an a-shirt, aka 'wifebeater', and a SuperTuck, year round.


    Actually, sometimes a more loose undershirt is cooler... YMMV.


    Another option, one that I have yet to try, is the SmartCarry

    Count me in for pocket carry as well. I actually have a SmartCarry on order that I'm going to try out. I usually have to tuck in a shirt so OWB just doesn't work for that.

    I usually carry a PPS 9mm in an OWB TTGunleather Snap Removable Pancake while wearing untucked shirts. Very comfortable though if I am out for long I will wear a tshirt under to keep sweat off the pistol. That actually is not any hotter as layering is a cooling factor.

    I'm your neighbor and in this weather I carry a Kel-Tec P3AT in a DeSantis Nemisis pocket holster in cargo shorts. No printing at all and light enough for no sagging. For evening wear I usually carry my S&W 342 in a Smart Carry. The titanium snubby is so light you forget it's there.

    wife beater under any shirt makes the heat more bearable and keeps the gun off my skin...

    g26...g19...g30sf...

    hume 715 iwb...blade tech iwb...or hume 721 owb...under a loose t or a hawaiin...all do a great job of concealing and are comfortable all day long...and into the night if i fall asleep in my chair...

    ya i love pocket carrying my p32 i may have to step up to a p3at or a lcp for a lilmore stopig power in my acticve life style and nt being able to carry at work pocket carrying or appendix carrying my revolver seems to be the quikest easiest route.
