    So, it's pretty effing hot now, eighth day of 95+. I usually carry my G19 in a Fricke IWB appendix, but when it's this hot, the Fricke Zack done Mexican SOB. The last two days I spent a lot of time outside, so it was my S&W42 in a pocket holster.

    I'm probably the only one out here doing this, and I know this thread concerns a G19, but I carry my G17 at a 3 o'clock position with my Galco Summer Comfort holster--I rarely tuck my shirts in anyway, so I normally have polo shirts, button down short-sleeve shirts, or t-shirts untucked. Sometimes with a t-shirt I have a minimal amount of printing--but at the 3 o'clock position, any printing simply looks like a cell phone on my belt...and I love cargo shorts--carry a spare mag in one of my pockets sometimes...

    A crossbreed holster is helpful, and conceals well under even a tshirt. If you prefer not to wear a belt a remora holster is very comfortable and secure with just a drawstring. For $25 it's worth checking out.

    Theis IWB (very similar to CBST) with t-shirt tucked in and either Polo shirt of button up shirt, and cargo shorts.

    It was 100 yesterday and the day before. I tried my G19 in a IWB kydex, no problem hiding under a button down oversize shirt, with a wifebeater underneath.

    The problem was that after 2 hours of garage sales , my shorts, both of them were soaked with sweat.

    The Glock grip was wet but the rest of the frame was dry.

    I changed out and put the LCP holstered in my front pocket and will not look back until it cools down to say mid 80's.

    Cargo shorts, t-shirt, and a Comp-Tac MTAC holster. Can carry a G19 easily. The MTAC is an excellent IWB holster.

    The 26 is my go-to gun when I really don't want to worry about printing no matter what. The 19 is pretty good but there IS a difference.

    I use a MTAC with no problem concealing my G19 or G23. Because a T shirt and shorts are my summer wear it is some times a little easier to carry the G27 or the LCR. But the MTAC does fine with the G19 or G23.

    Try a pocket holster. Nate Gable will make you one.
