What's a good .380 semi auto for summer carry?
 
I carry a S&W M&P 9c right now but even this compact is to big for me to carry when it's hot and I want just a t-shirt... A 380 sounds like it might work, what is a good gun and carry method?

Sig P238 and DeSantis Super Fly pocket holster. Cargo shorts.

Agreed. But, .380 is PRICEY!

I'm a Kahr guy. When I absolutely MUST carry in my pocket, I carry a Kahr P380 in a Desantis Nemesis.

However, don't forget that anytime you can go IWB, you should carry more gun than .380acp. There are some awesome teeny 9mm's (PM9/CM9 is one example).

And a $300-$400 price difference

That little sig is pretty attractive

I was really surprised by the difference in size between the PM9 and the P380 really felt like in bulk and weight in my pocket. The LCP by Ruger is another I have carried in my pocket extensively. The Bersa is HUGE compared to the Ruger LCP and Kahr P380. If I were going to pocket carry something as large as the Bersa, I see no reason not to go with a 9mm.

The Sig P238 is a 1911 platform (almost) and is really best for people who already carry a SA semi with thumb safety and train that way. If they usually carry DA semi-autos, people should stick to DAO pocket guns. JMHO
