Sometimes I carry a different gun in cold weather than during the summer. Mostly in the summer, I carry a small Colt Mustang (.380). Often in the winter, I will carry a 3 inch S&W Model 60 (.357) or sometimes a Charter Arms (.40 S&W) in an inside pocket in my leather jacket.

Great idea! I'll use the change of seasons to tell the wife I need a new gun

TBH I hadn't thought of it like that. I've stayed with the subcompact for easier concealment and carry. My compact is too bulky such that I wouldn't EDC if that was what I had as only option. What I do have though is a different choice for when I plan to be out at night. For night use, I go with one that has a Veridian trigger-guard mounted light that turns on when I draw. It is critical to know what you are shooting and that solves that problem with minimal impact to bulk.
