small conceal carry options for summer

I have a question i have a G19 that is the perfect CC option for fall winter and spring but it is not an option for summer and i am not keen on off body carry. I have looked at a couple of the "pocket pistols" and they all have their pros and cons from what i can tell what i am looking for is practical experience.

I am not a fan of buying and not liking and we do not have a range in our area nor a place to rent or try before you buy

I am 43 years old, 5'2 and 125 lbs and have a "trampy" side with my dress in the summer, I prefer sob carry or right front hip (was told that was not considered appendix carry) please any suggestions are appreciated

My wife hides her Kahr CM9 well. I mean scary well.

But as well as she hides that gun the little 380s almost disappear on her.

It's a tough one. She got to try before she bought hers

Everybody had different ideas when it comes to micros. I didn't like the lcp, but thousands of people do

My 19 is my summer carry as well. But if you're having difficulty go with a snubby .38. There's a lot of micro pistol options out there. . Keltecs, khar, etc.
The lcp is REALLY small. Best of luck to you !

The LC9 is another good option for smaller carry. I had an LCP and didn't like shooting it.
You are free to choose, but you are not free from the consequence of your choice.

LCP - Always works, and fits well in front short's pocket. Cheers.

Smart carry is all I use. Wear whatever I want, and I carry a G23.

If not a snubby revolver I would look at the Kahr CM series.

I have a Micro Eagle (.380)

Front pocket carry, but it's not particularly light. I'm 6', 185 and I can shoot a box at the range but that's about all my hands can take. ;-)

I don't have a lot of experience with small pistols but, for me, this one points and shoots almost by itself. FMJ no problems. Hollow point, Aguila, won't chamber a round out of the magazine. So sometimes I mix the magazine loading or start with one manually in the chamber.

My EDC is a Kahr PM-9 - very small, but it is surprising what won't fit in women's jeans pockets. The grip sticks out of my pocket a little but I just about always wear a blouse-over. (In Florida, if you accidently expose your firearm, it's not against the law.) If it doesn't go in a pocket, I tuck it in my waist near my appendix - or where my appendix used to be. NEVER a purse.
