bright sun, brisk dog walk, shorts and t-shirt

so today I take the mutt for a stroll; hes 9 months old and everything is go go go so you can work up a sweat with him.

anyway I wore shorts and a t-shirt today and didn't want to look ridiculous with my G17 OWB, so I went for IWB. I've gained a few pounds over the winter and was not comfortable at all trying to stuff a gun and holster IWB with my overgrown butt in my pants already.

needless to say I went for a smaller gun IWB and a J frame dropped in a pocket. G42 IWB with a Rawdog rig and an AirLight 342PD Ti in an off side front pocket without a holster. Had I planed on spending more time with the J frame it would be in a holster to save the pocket lining, but for a walk it was ok this time.

Meh--- shorts ----it was all of 13 degrees here where I live.
I was so bundled up it was impossible to detect the M1 Abrams I had concealed under my parka....

I do know your pain though of the Winter weight gain.
I put back on about 6 of the 110 pounds I lost over the last couple years.

My .45 acp Shield & the IWB holster don't work at present.
