The dog days are here, and they've come with a vengeance in Tennessee. Hot, humid and sticky.
It's during these times that I am reminded of the concealability advantage of a revolver. Where the squared off grip bottom of a Glock 19, or even a 1911, leaves a slight tell-tale straight line visible through a t-shirt, the nice round shape of a Ruger compact grip or a Pachmayr Compac make printing through a t-shirt almost impossible.
I can't lean, twist or contort my body in a way to make a GP100 or a k-frame with these grips print in even the slightest manner under a t-shirt.
This is, of course, all contingent on a good strong belt and a snug IWB holster, and your shirt being untucked.
So there we have it. My answer to the best concealable handgun in a hot sticky environment is not a small pocket handgun, it's a large service frame magnum revolver with appropriate grips in an IWB holster.
