Recent home invasion in my area has me thinking about carrying a pistol whenever possible even when I am on my property, but also when shopping, with a concealed carry permit of course.

How do any of you carry and what type of holster and pistol do you carry.-+/

When & where do you carry?

I wear shorts in the summer and no jacket so it seems that will be hard to conceal a pistol. I also want it to be comfortable.

Thanks in advance!

Uncle Mikes #4 pocket holster (cheap and effective!)

Extremely compact, but accurate
Laser makes gun more rectangular thus printing less. Great to have for those times a sight picture may not be possible.

I had a conceal Cary license at one time . I let it expire .

The state law was so restrictive I very seldom carried . Especially in the summer . Very difficult for this old fat man to conceal without showing a print of the gun , especially when it is hot & wearing light cloths .

For a novice , I recommend a double action wheel gun from a reputable manufacturer .

Maybe a semi-automatic for a more experienced person . And do not forget to clean the dust & lint out of it & lube it , every so often . Especially in summer if it is exposed to very much sweat .
God bless

RI 1911 45acp center console Still deciding on what for "lighter" usage. My DE 44 auto mag is a little too large too.
I agree with WT
A Instruction/Safety course for a new user is highly recommend also

carry what you are happy to practice alot with and what is always comfortable to have on you, reliable too. if it is only a 22lr, so be it. a hit with a 22lr is better than a miss with any other caliber. a ccw left at home is useless. im not a fan of sharp recoil and prefer pieces that are easy to fieldstrip. some smaller ccw that i favor: ruger lcr, 22lr and 38sp (wadcutter ammo only). s&w 642, 38sp (wadcutter ammo only). naa guardian, 32acp. sig 238, 380acp. naa mini revolver 22lr.

The only gun that I can wear truly concealed is a small frame .38 Charter Arms Off-Duty revolver. It's really more the holster than the gun.
I carried a Makarov for years and it's quite concealable, jam proof and packs a punch not to be compared with a .380. My third choice would be a PPK auto in the .380 variety.
There is hardly a way to carry a full size auto without a print but if you have a permit, big deal if anyone knows. It's legal as long as it's covered. I call bull on people that say you are a target, no one wants a gun fight especially a criminal.
Too many soft targets.
