    Holster for Smith and Wesson BodyGuard 38 Special

    I have been looking for a way to conceal my firearm better, especially during the summer. I currently carry a glock 26 but I think as summer approaches I will need something lighter, more compact, and easier to carry. I currently has a SW BG 38 Special that I can carry during the summer months. The only issue is that I never carry revolvers. Other than throwing the 38 in a coat pocket during the winter when I go to the store I have no practice with ccw. I don't even have a holster. I was wondering, if I begin to carry my 38 special during the summer a) where should I carry on my body and b) what holster works best? A couple of things to consider, I dont really wear shorts and most of my clothing is fitted, I am also a larger guys at 5'11 an 225 lbs. I need something that will disappear almost entirely on my person. I am so very leary of printing (I posted an article about this on the CCW Issues portion of this forum). I have looked into the soft suede iwb holster but thought I should come here first to ask since I have almost not experience with a revolver for ccw. Thanks!

    You live in a open carry state yes ? Then don't worry if it shows ..you get use to it .

    For me when I first started carrying I used a p3at in a pocket holster even in dress pants you can't see it .

    As for a BG 380 it's tricky ..you mean that smith and wesson with a laser on it not a jframe smith yes? I carry my j frame bodyguard owb in a galco or Nelson rig .part of the issue with that gun is no smaller grips so that don't help

    But really iwb or owb will be fine you will need at least one size larger pants though .

    I would wear it in an OWB leather holster. A light weight tee tucked in and a button type shirt left unbuttoned and untucked will cover it nicely. I wore shirts like this all last summer and I did not notice it being any hotter than just a tee. This holster is from Wright Leather Works and is for a 2" J frame. My 640-1 has a 2 1/8" barrel and that is why you see a bit of it sticking out.
