Here in Florida you guys don't understand that our summer lasts 9-10 months. (South Florida anyway)
When your everyday clothing is a bathing suit and flip flops, dressing up usually means putting on a t-shirt and evening wear is a Tommy Bahama silk camp shirt. (still the bathing suit and FFs)
My Michigan EDC was my Colt Government. Easy to do when summer lasts two weeks at the end of July. I have been in FL for some time now and it was a real adjustment.
I carried my Defender as long as I could but in shorts, without a belt, you just can't keep your pants up. (Not a real issue in some neighborhoods. Pants on the ground.
I carried my Mauser 1914 for some time but wasn't confident with the .32 ACP.
Then I got my Elsie Ahrrr and things felt much better.
The LCR is a natural point shooter providing me excellent accuracy.
The +P is a great round and with light clothing, not a penetration issue down here.
For the same reason, I feel comfortable walking the dogs carrying my daughter's Elsie Pea. I'm not a big .380 fan but it works fine as my neighborhood stroll piece.
When I'm wearing jeans, on goes the xbreed-ST with my Browning HP. If I'm going to Miami/Dade, in goes my Colt Government and the x2 mag pouch and the .38 as a BUG.
In South Florida, carrying the .38 LCR in shorts will serve you well and provide you with the element of surprise and advantage. As always, stay sharp!
