Me either and i wear them low hip so the added weight in pocket is fine being in front, but on waiste is not, pulls them off. I've even tried one of those technaclips.

I don't wear cargo, my clothes have only 2 front and 2 back in pants/shorts, nowhere else. The Remora was the closest thing, but

It is, but I fail to understand your lack of comprehension. Question already answered through rationale that even the simplest of minds could deduce. Also answered in my very first post. Also a very common sense and fundamental firearms teaching...

Any gun is better than none.

And yes everyone by pure definition is at their most comfortable in their lives when dead. Still a very stupid comment. Who's to say my double 22lr to the face wont do exactly what your 45 would, which is self defense. May very well kill. Again, you all seem to be implying your own BS here. I'm not asking what you want, I'm telling you what I do. The only question here was dif in cal.

I have a J Frame Smith & Wesson .38 that is small, light and in a Don Hume pocket holster just disappears in any shorts pocket I have. From soccer shorts with just a drawstring (cannot beat that comfort), to cargo shorts.

Good luck with your choice. A two shot derringer would not be my choice as I am too old and too slow to outrun anyone, but it is better then throwing rocks.

I have a crossbreed holster for my .380 auto and love it. The derringer comes in other calibers.

Have you tested your derringer? With 22LR the recoil is probably pretty small, but so is the grip. You might look into some of the micro semi-autos. A few of them are not much larger than a derringer, fit easily in a pocket holster and provide more, larger rounds. They're very flat, single stack, and might be about as comfortable as the derringer.

the ONLY, and I mean ONLY, to end all holster for summer carry is the Remora. Comfort, affordable, and simple works the best. Any size gun but best with a .45 since anything eles is just silly.
Go ahead and lock this thread.

You're in the PNW and have a problem with summer carry? Boo Hoo!

Take a hint from us who have a serious hot weather carry issue here in sub-tropical South Florida, buy a Remora for the carry piece of your choice and reintroduce yourself to comfortable CC.

A true hot weather holster that carries extremely well and does not require you to dance-with-the-devil to use it.

Remora Holsters

Call Jacqui 239-207-0602 and tell her canebrake said hi.

I'm a big Remora fan.



The Ruger is appendix carried and the 1911's are kidney carried. The x2 mag pouch holds my xtra mag and my EDC knife.

All are No-Clip, Non-Slip Concealment Holsters, put 'em where you want.

It's the kindest thing I do to my guns.

You need to get into some cargo shorts, for both comfort and carry convenience. I also practice martial arts and have recently begun reassessing my wardrobe choices because I felt I wasn't "good to go" in the condition I was walking out the door.

I'm a fanny pack man myself. It distributes the weight nice , easy access, comfortable.
If you are going to go with the 22 shoot for the eye or ear canal and it will scramble the brain. They may survive but they won't have any quality of life life.
