In 2015, the better half and I moved from Maryland to Texas. The move was prompted by the usual retiree needs, warmer climate and proximity to family and wanting to get away from the congestion and crime and pollution of the Washington D.C.area. My better half and her sisters are all from down here, so the better half said she wanted to be with her sisters in her later senior citizen years. Most of my family is gone so it was a no brainier. Sunny warm Texas here we come. One of the very first things we did on setting on the new house was, take the course and get our license to carry. Living in the Peoples Republik Of Maryland, our second amendment rights were not possible. Now, getting up in the morning is an exercise of the 2d. Pants on, keys, wallet, gun, cell phone. But, carrying a gun in a warm to hot climate I found out is a genuine . From mid spring to mid fall, 6 months of the year, it's hot and uniform of the day is shorts, loose shirt and Keen sandals. I had a Glock 26 and in two years in Texas it got carried twice. Even the so called baby Glock, was just to blocky and bulky for pocket carry. And pocket carry is the only real way to carry in a hot Texas summer.This means a small gun. Ruger LCP size or smaller. Maybe an air weight S&W J frame at 12 ounces. But most of all, my everyday carry gun, and I do mean really everyday no matter what, has been my little companion of 34 years. My North American Arms mini .22 revolver. Even in nylon cargo shorts and T-shirt, it's easy to pack in a DeSantis pocket holster. Yes, it's a bit on the light side, but for arms length it's okay. The Glock has been sold and I may eventually get a LCP or small KelTech, but carrying a gun everyday in Texas can be a problem because of light clothing. And being retired, I am not going to dress around my gun. In the close to two years I've been here, I've yet to see more than 2 people open carrying, even though it's been legal. I see shorts and T-shirt as the uniform of the day 6 months of the year, and most times the T-shirt is tucked in, so no IWB carry there. I can only assume that in spite of people claiming to carry this or that gun of the month, most people are sticking to the pocket size sub compact guns. Ruger LCP's are the hot seller here according to the gun shop folks. I may go that direction. But I think five CCI stingers would ruin some low life day. I've made a habit out of watching people to see what they may be carrying. Dress code here is VERY casual once people are off work. Shorts, T-shorts and sandals of either Teva, Keen, or flip flops variety. At public functions like the Georgetown Friday evening music on the square, street festivals, and other public functions, I don't see any kind of gun, so if people are carrying it most be pocket carry. Certainly no Glocks, Sigs, or other 9mm or other guns. Even compact guns would be too big in the summer dress here. Like I said, uniform of the day seems to be tucked in T-shirt, cargo shorts, and sandals. Now, I do see some bulges here and there in right hand pocket area of the cargo shorts on some folks. I can only presume they have their gun there. There just is not anyplace else to carry a gun. Once in a while you see an untucked short sleeve collared shirt, and an IWB could be there. I'll wear Magellan fishing shirts in the heat, nice and loose fitting and vented, but I really hate IWB carry and don't do it. In the Texas summer, whatever you wear IWB is going to be sweat soaked. I tried both nylon and leather holsters IWB, and by the end of a hot afternoon, both holster material and gun were soaked. Not nice. The small pocket gun seems to be the solution to the hot weather in southern climates, for real day after day after day carry.
