    Hello from Fort Worth

    Hello I am a new member to the forum, from Fort Worth. I have a CC license, and wear daily, from work to Church. My weapon of choice is a S&W .40. As a slightly larger individual, the 40 is easy to carry with my crossbreed super-tuck, a pair of good pants and a especially a good 1 1/2'' belt. I find the 40 is too big for a shorts, and I am sorry but I refuse to wear a fanny pack, sorry guys that is just me. Been thinking of a small Colt, or Taurus.380 as a secondary pocket style? Any thoughts?

    The Texas heat will make you want to leave your weapon at home, however, to me it is an obligation to those in your family, your friends, and to those innocent people who just happen to be the wrong place at the wrong time. Concealed Carry means you will not stand by while some crazy person tries to make a name for themselves like what happened in a Luby's Restaurant here in Texas, or a Shopping Mall in Arizona. It is our obligation as responsible mature adults to stop this madness if at all possible.

    Thanks for the opportunity to join this forum, I enjoy the reading posts from the citizens, and the experts in the field our Police Officers, I have learned allot.

    Hey Mike, welcome from the other side of the metroplex! For when you are wearing shorts, a 38 snubbie works pretty well. I carry mine either in a pocket or IWB. I also have a KelTec 380, but almost never carry it because the 38 seems easy enough to conceal.

    Thanks skeeter I have not considered the 38.

    Welcome to the forum

    I can conceal a Commander-sized 1911 without any problems while wearing shorts, and I do not wear oversized clothes at all. A Commander-sized 1911 is very easy to conceal IWB.

    Welcome to the forum from SW Ohio. Try looking at a S&W 442 or 642 for carry in shorts in hot weather. It's my summer carry gun.

    Welcome from Michigan!
    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!

    Welcome to the forum from Colorado, Mike. I and sure you'll find great advice here on a good summer carry gun, you are an asset to your community.
    Just cause you're paranoid, doesn't mean you're wrong....

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
