Yep. Houston is the air-conditioning capitol of the world (also the roach capitol of the world). But it's still a great place to live.

I never dress "around" my gun(s). If you need to then your carrying the wrong gun for your carry style and body type. Pants vs. Shorts make no difference as we carry in the waistline. Correct gun, Quality Holster, actual gun belt and you'll never have issues.

Well... If you had to leave the Evergreen State, the Lone Star State would be my pic as well!

Texas is the only state I've visited where the locals know your not from there but are still as friendly as can be. Great People them Texans.

Although your story is a good review of the lcp, knowing your gun is full of sawdust and firing it before cleaning is borderline dangerous, and a tad careless. Just my opinion.

Dangerous how?

Pocket carry is typically done in a holster so it's very unlikely the barrel could become obstructed?

Short of an obstructed barrel... I see no danger? Extra wear on the gun... Possibly? Dangerous? No... Not in my opinion.

You 'must' do both if you wish to be WELL armed all of the time.

I carry based on how I'm dressed.

Jeans: I holster it

Today: I've got the baggy shorts which makes it easier.
