    Jean shorts and carry like normal.

    I don't really use dedicated concealment shorts. I just wear my regular cargo shorts, that's if I even wear shorts.

    Wow, interesting responses. I usually wear cargo shorts. It's already in the 90's here.

    "Real men don't wear shorts." Real men must sweat like crazy & not get girls...you gotta be comfortable...LOL

    If I wear jean or regular shorts, it's IWB carry. That's the nice thing about my PM9. Carry it with the extended mag IWB, the flush mag for pocket...

    For comfort I pretty much love in shorts in summer (no comments swifty!).

    I like best the ones I got from Cabellas and wish I could get more - will have to do some looking. They are pretty much denim 5/11's in style. On top, a Smith and Alexander vest or open light shirt usually does the trick.

    Hey, I live at the lake during the summer and shorts are a must. Thanks for all the recommendations. I think I'll buy some cargo shorts because although I do have a P3AT, I'd rather carry my 642. Steve48

    Cargo shorts or the Dockers/Duck Head style with pleated pockets. Those pleats are amazing in how much difference they make, my 642 just disappears in those pockets. Add a loose t-shirt or unbuttoned short sleeve over a "wife beater" and I'm ready to head out.

    Footnote:
    Out of concern for the general public, I generally keep my lilly white, knobby kneed, chicken legs covered at all times. Besides, I can't decide which socks to wear with my Tevas!

    Temps hit 77 here today and I'm loving it - other than the %^&#*& pollen. Feels nice to let fresh air into the apartment.
