Concealed in the Summer

What are some secrets for carrying in the summer? I like to carry an XD subcompact 40, but it is a little hard to carry with just t-shirts covering. I would like to keep teh OWB holster. Maybe best to get a smaller gun for the summer months.

I don't change how I carry that much during the summer. I tend to carry my G26 a little more but for the most part I continue to use my Wilderness Frequent Flyer belt and carry my G26 in a CCC Looper holster: http://www.shop.customcarryconcepts....3&productId=10

Generally I just go up one size on my t-shirt and I can carry just fine.

As mentioned. Smaller gun, larger shirt. I carry a G26 in the summer, and just go up 1 size in shirts.

Been thinkin about trying to trade my Taurus .40 with someone for a smaller carry. Maybe a .380 or smaller 9mm. Can't carry mine too easy with shorts and a t-shirt.

For those of you that have Glocks, I've used the Clipdraw for many years (including when I was doing UC work) Works great!

That Clipdraw is exactly what I need. Looks like they have a universal fit for my Taurus. Thanks for the info.

IWB holsters for concealment! There is no OWB holster that I know of that can come close.

In the summer I switch from my G19 to my S&W 442. I use a desantis OWB holster and a button up short sleeve shirt. I can use a t-shirt, but I am a big guy and the button up fits a little looser and breaks the printing better. IWB is the best, but they are not comfortable on me.
