Never had any kind of problem concealing either. Take a run through Galco's website, they make some awesome leather.
    Wow, I'm impressed. I have a 96, and I couldn't imagine carrying that thing. It feels like a boat anchor sometimes when I lug it around. (Still not as bad as my Ruger Redhawk .44 was, though). My climate (Misssissippi) is about like Georgia, so I really can't imagine carrying it in summer.

    I've got a 7 1/2" barrel Ruger Bisley .44 Magnum in a fanny pack.


    Okay, no. I've got a M&P compact 9 with a 3.5" barrel. I tend to wear baggy shirts and carry IWB with a Galco holster and the imprint is pretty bad. I think with a little longer of a barrel, it would probably keep the grip in a little tighter and might be a little easier to conceal. Of course I have a little bit of a belly and it kind of kicks it out a little. I'm thinking about just going full-on and put on the extra 50lbs of gut, then I can conceal in the rolls and go shirtless. That's my summer plan.

    It depends on where you live. When I lived in the NE I almost always had on a jacket, coat or heavy outer shirt and had no problems concealing a Glock 17. Now that I live in South Florida and the most comfortable way to be dressed is to wear nothing. But seriously now I only wear shorts and the lightest shirts, I carry a S&W lightweight 38, 2" in my pocket.

    I carry a Sig P229 DAK .40 w/Federal Hydra-shock. In the winter I have a 5.11 conceal carry jacket and on the warmer days a paddle holster with a loose shirt or my waist pack.

    +1 for a FL .38+p j frame in the pocket of cargo shorts. A few weeks a year i can put on a light coat (that i don't really need) without looking too out of place and carry the "big gun", a 4" polymer

    I conceal either my G19 or G27 just as well, in the same holster IWB. I just have to position the holster differently. My G17 or G22 can use the same holster, but as pointed out.....the grip is the big thing to deal with. I only carry the full size pistols OWB so far. Hoping to get the P220 IWB by this summer in an MTac.

    I carry a 1911 with a 4 inch barrel because of the full size grips.

    I Carry a Glock 17, Glock 21, or Colt Commander pretty much all day I dont see a problem with carrying a full sized pistol. I can conceal it easily enough.

    I carry almost all of them: 9mm, 357sig, 40S&W, and 10mm in a variety of subcompact and compact frames. The only one I'm missing is 45ACP, but the funds are not as great as they could be so it's going to have to wait.

    I carry my M&P9c frequently, IWB, with a relatively tight t-shirt. Usually black, or another dark color. With only a t-shirt over the butt of the gun, it DOES print, a little.

    But after carrying almost every day for over a year... NO ONE SEES IT.

    If I really need to carry deep, I stuff my Kel-Tec P-3AT in a wallet holster in my back pocket.

    But the butt of a gun, pushing your shirt tail out 1/2 and inch... is never seen. Concealed carry newbies are paranoid about it, but once you carry for a while, you'll find that it's never noticed.

    I DO swith to 1-o'clock carry in social locations where a friend might put an arm around me. This is easy with a clipdraw belt clip. I carry 90% of the time with the clipdraw, and occasionally OWB, when I wear a jacket.

    But living in FL... it was 83 today... jacket-wear is about 1 month per year.

    I am, for the first time, carrying a full size pistol as my daily CCW. My particular gun has a 4.7" barrel and and an 18 capacity mag. The gun weighs 2.6 lbs unloaded and is not easy to forget that I'm wearing. That said, I can conceal the gun under a light overshirt just fine because I spent $ on a good holster. In this case a High Noon, mostly because there are few manufacturers making holsters for my gun. Anyway, there's lots of great holster mfg's out there and if you get a quality rig, you can carry a pretty darn big semi-auto and go completely unnoticed.
