Default Summertime and shorts.

As soon as it warms up enough, my daily attire is cotton shorts held up with a built-in drawstring, along with a t-shirt. Now I know that the t-shirt will cover my pistol/holster combo, but with nothing to hang the holster on with the shorts, I don't carry in the Summertime. I do carry one in the car, but that is only good for when I am behind the wheel.

I have seen advertizements for a belly wrap kind of holster that might work. Anybody use it? Or can give me some other opinion/option?

By the way, my carry pistol is a M&P9c in a Don Hume JIT beltslide. As you can see, I've got me a belly problem.

I don't know if the shorts with a string tie would be sturdy enough to utilize an IWB holster, but I'll keep it in mind. Thanks for the reply.

I am string-tie and elastic challenged when it comes to shorts.

Not trying to be Funny, but what about a Fanny Pack Holster? There are quite a few options out for that application. Need a place to keep the wallet and money, as draw string shorts don't have pockets, if they do they will suffer the same wieght issues as carrying a holster.

Cotton shorts with drwastrings arent carry-friendly. I now wear cargo shorts and jean shorts. The only time I wear clothes not carry-conscious, is when playing sports or sleeping. And my Sig P238 can always slip into my softball shorts pocket, when OFF the field.

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

I bet we can come up with a great term for that. A "Jort-Shart?" Almost sounds like a summer Olympics event.
