    My everyday carry is a Glock 27, but there have been some instances lately, especially with the warmer weather that it's not feasible to hide the 27. I have a SW Bodyguard 380 loaded with Hornady Critical defense that I have been pocket carrying both with the 27 and without. I am comfortable with my ability with both weapons and practice with both equally.

    So, my question is is the 380 an adequate caliber with that ammo to stop a threat or should I change my way of dressing in the warmer months to conceal the Glock 27?

    Any gun beats no gun, but .380 is awfully feeble. Belly band or other good IWB carry should render the G27 concealable even in the depths of tropical summer.

    best,
