I wear a ton of cargo shorts, so I made this for the keltec I used to have. I have s bodyguard now so I will make another one. It fit well and looked like a wallet. Yes the extra mag is strong side, but hell I'd rather have it there then none at all

Can anybody recommend a holster I can use with my g-string?

Tie a piece of rope to your trigger guard and the other end to the string up your butt. Holds your pistol and prevents wedgies....that's what I do anyway

Speak for yourself -- I have no problem hiding a full size 1911 in my Speedo's.

Been known to wear wingtips with tassles and a kiltie on the beach too!

Last summer I carried my S&W J Frame .38 snubbie in a Don Hume pocket holster in cargo shorts. I live in Florida, so that works well with any shirt. I now also have a S&W Shield which I carry in a Kydex IWB from a gun show. Good holster. Gun is fitted to it, it is comfortable to carry. As long as I have a belt, I will probably carry that this summer. I just make sure I buy long Tees or golf shirts.

For work days, I still use the J Frame and pocket holster.

Florida can be a challange with the heat, shorts and tees, but it can be done. My SR9c is much harder to carry in the summer, and is more of a Winter carry as there are more clothes to conceal it.

N82 IWB most days with my Sig P938. It is comfortable all day. The P938 is the best concealed carry choice I have found. Gym shorts or sweats I pocket carry a Seacamp 32. It is important to find a solution that works for you. Better to carry small and light, then to go without.

I have a Kahr cm40 for a carry weapon, right now I'm using a SHTF gear hybrid ace-2 holster IWB that's very comfortable and concealable. When the weather gets hot I'll go to my Galco pocket holster.

That is telling me that you have plenty of room there.

I have Remora with full sweat shield for my Sig 238 and it works fine but I usually pocket carry in a DeSantis Superfy.
