    Holster against the skin?

    So how many of you carry with your holster against bare skin? I've always worn an undershirt most of the time, even when just wearing a t shirt, but once I started carrying, I've ALWAYS worn an undershirt. Never even crossed my mind to carry without one. In the heat, I usually throw on an underarmor shirt underneath, but there's always something there.

    South Florida, even 1 shirt is too much.
    If it is hot, like today (86) I am going to a BBQ, my M-Tac is against my skin, got used to it. A T-shirt over, that's it.
    And undershirts are so ugly ... my wife would kill me

    Undershirt is a must with kydex. Haven't gone undershirtless yet with my leather holster. I'm kinda sweaty, so I'm afraid it'll ruin the hide:)

    I have a IWB and an OWB Don Hume Leathergood holsters. the IWB does hold the weapon closer.

    I meant against bare skin...as opposed to having a shirt between the holster and your body

    +1 on the UnderArmor shirt for summer time wear. Great wicking properties. Also available for winter wear. When I'm not at work depending on temp it's a HD or UA tee followed by another tee or sweatshirt and Levis. Did it for years in Florida also. Usually was a UA or tee and a buttondown unbuttoned in a light color so I wasn't a solar panel. Never made and stayed as comfortable as possible in that miserable Fl. summer wx.

    T-shirt or "wife beater" then holster then cover shirt. AS has been said the other don't work. It is more the gun butt on the "love handles" though!

    Half the time. Not an issue for me OWB. IWB really doesn't bother me against the skin.

    Bluegrass IWB and I can hike up my underwear on right side enough so the the leather doesn't come in contact with my sink and underwear is not up my crack. Haines boxes briefs.

    Nothing comes between me and my Kalvins. Oh La La Sasson.
