    There is a shirt style called a "Guyaberra" which is worn in Latin American countries as well as the Phillipines as a dress shirt and not tucked in. They are available here also and easily conceal your weapon. It is somewhat billowly and very comfortable. To me, it is the ultimate in hot weather carry. As a slimming down and soon to be a former fat guy (I hope) I will still wear these shirts because they are so stylish.

    I located a site that sells these shirts in "Big Boy" sizes. I too am in the process of shrinking myself down (100 pounds down since December) and think this style of shirt will work well for me this summer. Thanks for the tip!

    Hawaiian shirts, or Walmart polo shirt, George brand made with wicking fabric that helps keep you cool. With these I am able to conceal a Glock 22 in a Kramer #2 IWB with no problem.

    There's pocket carry holsters, if your gun is pocket-size. Even pocket holsters can require a little "dress-around" to keep things accessable and confortable.

    Cargo shorts. I've found that I can carry any of my pistols up to my HK P2000 in the side pockets.

    Question fat guy beachwear carry

    My PCM when I wear shorts and a beach shirt in the summer HEAT, or pants & jacket in the winter is a GOOD gunbelt and a Crossbreed Supertuck "Deluxe" holster. I usually carry AIWB in a trimmed down CBST with "velcro" clips; especially when I tuck my shirt tail in.

    "IF", I'm wearing beachwear or sweats where I don't have the option of a belt, I love my "Smartcarry".

    One more thing I might add is; if you use a wheelchair I would suggest carrying AIWB. I believe this method may provide you with the fastest and easiest access from a "sitting" position.
    What the H%#* are you talking about? New guy here.....
