    I carry a Bauer .25 Auto (stainless copy of a Baby Browning) in my back pocket no matter what the time of year. If I think I am going to be somewhere where the chances of needing a firearm goes above 1 chance in a million I will add either a snub nose .38 or .44 But then I tend to not be where I shouldn't so that is rare. In

    21+ 5 years of carrying I have never had the need to have the thing in my hand because of a threat. I have had my hand on it a couple of times in case a threat developed.

    Even in light clothing a S&W j-frame conceals easily and you don't have to settle for a reduced caliber. Although i do carry a P238 from time to time when I need something smaller.

    Carry a M&P40c year around. As soon as the M&P40s (Shield) comes out I might be changing to it.

    Both? I have a J frame and a P64 that I pocket carry in the summer. The J frame is lighter but the auto is thinner so it depends on my pants.

    LCR in a pocket holster with a couple of speed strips in my other pocket. Revolver reliability with five .38+p JHP's on tap in a 14 oz. pkg. Beats a .380 all to heck as far as I am concerned.

    I too utilize a M&P40c and like it very much. The M&P40s certainly looks promising. Just might be my next.

    For the record, this summer I'm pack'n a J-frame. For a while there I thought I was going to be the sole revolver guy in the poll. Whew. :p

    Hawaiian shirt, cargo shorts and a Detective BHP 9MM in a IWB holster with 16 rds on tap and at least (1) 15 rd reload. I never carry less as a primary

    (Mine does not have the goofy white lettering, it was a slide conversion for one of my MK 2 Brownings)

    Benelli m4 on my back with alternating 00 buck and PDX buck n ball rounds, a sawed off 12 on my weak side hip, and a hi cap Springfield 45 on my other hip. I carry all this while wearing speedos and flip flops. I'm six foot five 298 lbs so it all blends in.
