PDP-F 3.5" For Concealed Carry

I have a PDP-C 4" that is exceptional. Love the firearm but it's clearly a bit bulky for concealed carry during the warmer T-shirt wearing months here in AZ. (More than Half the year)

I haven't had a chance to see or handle the new PDP-F 3.5" so I wanted to ask if anyone who owns one carry's concealed? Or if you've handled one, what are your thoughts? Too bulky?

I've been toying with the idea of buying a PDP F-series too. I've done a bit of research on the pistol and have similar CC concerns during hot summer months.

If your body is having a hard time concealing your PDP-C 4", then I suspect you will have similar issues with the F-series while trying to conceal it during Arizona summer temps.

I lived in Buckeye for three years and carried a PPS40 which is only 0.2" shorter than the PDP-F, but it is 0.44" thinner than the fat-boy F-series according to Walther specs.

Your body size and shape are important, but so is the clothing you chose to wear.

That said, I can easily conceal a thicker, heavier S&W model 4053 during the hot, humid N.C. summers between a tucked-in gray Hanes X-Temp tank top and loose gray or dark colored Lands End Super T t-shirt with gun-belted cargo pants. The X-Temp is worn to absorb sweat and the loose fitting Super T allows some venting but not printing.

I suspect I would have to buy new pants with a one-inch larger waist size or trim an inch off my waistline to comfortably accommodate an F-series. I might have to experiment with different carry positions, and also consider buying a two-clip adjustable holster from MTR Custom Leather so I can change the cant if the grip prints too much. I like leather.

I'm looking forward to hearing from those that do CC the F-series, and want to know what their IWB carry position is too.
