    Summer's approaching and people are working out, wearing shorts and a T-shirt, or biking shorts and shirt. With minimal clothing, concealment is not easy wearing microfiber or in some cases, present company NOT INCLUDED, spandex.

    I have a P238, and I carry it as a backup to a primary gun. I don't have a reliable small 9mm for pocket carry since my Diamondback DB9 has been unreliable.

    What do you recommend? A Belly Band? What type of gun? 38? 9 mm? Of the newest Smaller than Subcompact Pistols like the Nano, the P290, the Solo, the PF9, PM9 and others, what do you recommend for a concealed carry 9mm?

    Belly band is great, but is gonna get soaked in sweat during a workout. Fanny pack would be better than nothing. (Of course, there's always the option of home gym with AK47 standing ready in the corner...:supergrin:)

    In a very small 9mm, I personally like the Kahr for its accuracy and trigger pull characteristics, but it's obviously a subjective choice.

    best,

    Awesome idea for the home gym. I don't own an AK47, yet. I usually just wear a IWB with a pistol around the house. They need to make a concealed carry sling for the AK47.:rofl:
