Not everyday.....but on occasion- depending on where I go and how I dress.

I live near the gulf coast..... hot and humid is the norm nearly 6 months out of the year. I wear my C-100 now and then, but mostly my sub-compacts (Bersa or Kahr) in summer. With Fall/Winter approaching I expect to carry a DA on the cold days when I can cover it with heavy clothing. Will probably carry the C-100 more often.

For me?......the Elite is too big for IWB.
Maybe I don't have enough padding around my waist....and my old bones can't take the pressure. Small sub-compacts I can IWB, but even then...gotta be on the side.

My C-100 is EDC if the weather is below 80 degrees. Over that, either my KelTec P11 or my favorite (But it's only a .380) FEG PA63 AP9. Probably the most comfortable gun to handle, carry and shoot of any I've ever had. Wish is was in .9mm.

My Elite is my weekend EDC. I use a SMC holster for AIWB. With a good belt, it hides nicely with shorts and a t shirt.

I typically carry my Walther P99c, but when the weather turns and I wear more clothing, I sometimes carry my TP9DA on my waistband. It's a bit too bulky for me to carry IWB. But yes, in colder weather, I will carry the DA on my waistband.

My Elite is my edc. I carry at 3:30 using a clinger no print wonder IWB. My personal philosophy is to use a weapon that will handle any problem that may come up first and to worry about concealing it second. Warm weather just requires wearing a loose fitting shirt for a cover garment, I find that a pair of cargo shorts and a Hawaiian style shirt conceal my Elite just fine. Yeah I may look a little funny around here but at my age I can get away with about anything, no one expects me to be fashionable. Who would believe that the old dork is armed? I just don't do my best work with a pocket pistol, never have. I like the clinger concept in holsters, You can purchase the hardware to turn it into an OWB or two different IWB styles.
