    Winter Carry

    Anyone change their carry in the winter?
    Going around town here in Montana this week and years past I've noticed my 27 in a Crossbreed gets buried by a hoodie and jacket.
    Anyone go to a bigger gun and OWB?
    I've been using my Glock 23C in my Galco OWB more. Seems to work a lot better. Conceals pretty well under a hoodie as well.

    yeah due to colder weather my j frame currently has 3-finger "combat" grips on it rather than 2-finger bantams and is more likely to be found in either of my owb pancake holsters than during warmer months. I still switch it up almost daily though.

    Nope. Either a Glock 27 or a S&W 442 all the year long.

    I don't change the gun, but I did recently pick up an OWB to try out this winter. I actually wore it out and about tonight and with a sweatshirt and jacket over, obviously no one could tell. I won't say I will strictly OWB this winter, but it will def. get used!

    Nope. Just a coat and boots. The 1911 and j frame don't change much.

    They do get oiled a bit more.

    I go more OWB depending on my coat. I've got a lighter winter jacket that is loose enough for a good draw, but when it gets really cold my heavier jacket will not allow a good draw unless it's unzipped, so then I carry my LCR in an outside vertical zippered chest pocket (in a holster of course). It's perfect. I unzip the pocket when I go through parking lots for better access and zip it back up when in the store.

    My only difference is, my open carry G19 is covered with a jacket in cold weather.

    Winter carry? I almost always go to a shoulder holster - to me, it is much easier to access the pistol in a shoulder holster when you are wearing heavy coats and jackets.

    I don't change my carry weapon during the winter (even if I'm where there actually is a winter) but I do carry OWB a bit more than IWB during it.

    I may OWB occasionally, but, to be honest I've gotten so used to IWB that I'll probably just keep it up. The only thing that changes is that I go from pocket carrying my LCR occasionally to all the time. That big gun on the belt is way slower than that little one in the pocket.
