    I carry 24/7. I don't have a problem in the cooler months when I am wearing heavy clothes or jackets. But in the summer, I either carry a S&W 640 or a Glock 30SF in either a IWB holster or in a pocket holster when wearing long pants. I have been using Thunderware holsters for my carry guns for over 12 years now when I am wearing shorts. You wear it under your shorts and I can easily conceal my full sized Glock 21SF and not have to wear a shirt at all.

    I have the Ruger LCR too. It's light weight, has a wonderful DAO trigger, and laser grips. I use a Nemesis pocket holster. Vanished right before your eyes.

    I agree with most, IWB holster for summer carry. I carry a glock 27 in a Comp-tac infidel holster. I am so used to this that I carry it year round (not that it gets too cold here). It disappears fine with just a tshirt and shorts.

    I was actually thinking of a pocket holster today while i was driving. i wear cargo shorts, and they have pretty big pockets, so that would be easy enough to conceal easily.

    I use cargo pockets regularly. Works just fine. Since those pockets are usually baggy, obviously you need to be aware to not let it fall out or shift and turn too much.

    Think I'll just buy a fake badge, and wear my gun out. That should work with no problems.

    Ever since I have got my CHL, I have been real paranoid of society. My wife thinks it's funny that I take my gun everywhere. Hopefully I never I have to prove to her that it's worth it. But have it in that time ever comes.

    I hope you are joking. Even those "custom" CCW permit badges get people in a lot of trouble. Badges and guns get people hooked up for impersonationg and officer more times than they help. Just carry CONCEALED, the whole point of your permit.

    Of course I am joking. I want to keep my right as an American.

    Just trying to figure out the best way to carry. When I say best; I mean for me, and for everyone else. I want to have my gun easily accessible if needed, and not be clearly visible to the common person on the street.

    I can hit a man size target every shot at 25-30 feet when shooting very fast.

    I can also conceal it while wearing just an under shirt and basketball shorts.

    So, it works for me.
