After you get your license, of course...

Right now, the most concealible choice I have is my USP40C in a Heinie/Alessi DOJ holster or a Bladetech kydex IWB.

But now that CCW is a reality, I am looking at other options. A commander sized 1911 is starting to sound nice. And if the HK P2000 subcompact ever comes out...

1911A1, cocked and locked, in a FIST Model 21A IWB.

FEG PA-63 (think Makarov) lightweight, reliable, more power than a .380 but less than a 9mm luger. Easily fits into a pocket.

My Beretta 84s(.380) is what I'll probably start with. The only thing is even though it's a fairly compact pistol it is a little thick. At least we can all think about such stuff now:)

I am thinking either the CZ-75 compact(9mm), or a FEG PA-63(.380)...

If I go with the CZ, then I won't have to buy a different caliber bullet...

Might even just pack my CZ-75b, and get a shoulder holster, with the compact in a belt holster(small of the back)...

Mags, are interchangeable...

Sig P-220 in .45, riding in a Comp-Tac Tuckable IWB. The gun absolutely disappears under a good cover garment.

I guess I just need to invest in a good belt, instead of these Wally World Specials...

My Glock 21 with really bulky clothes.

My Kel-Tec p11 (9mm) most of the time probably. It is the size of the ppk type 380 blow backs. But, it holds 10+1 rounds of 9 luger (parabellum) and only weighs ~11 ozs. empty
It's ugly, it's DAO trigger is forever and a day, but is about the largest thing that can be concealed without a covering jacket/second shirt untucked/or coat.

Considering getting a p32 for when I cannot carry anything larger
.75" wide, ~7ozs. IIRC,very tiny.

It is tough to carry a full size gun concealed, especially when hot weather comes around. If you use a jacket for cover you can not just take it off when you get hot. Work clothes may not offer more than pants pockets, ankles, thunder wear, and armpit shirt holsters.

Pocket holsters print... period and do not work well in some pants. Some (ie. Kramer)print like a wallet.I do know of cheaper models than Kramer.

Smart carry/thunder wear prints and isn't comfy for me. Works OK but not great for my P11, but my Glock 21 looks like a damn dictionary stuffed in my pants.

I've never tried ankle or armpit. Both look hard to get to, armpit might hurt, don't know.

IWB prints some also, especially with my wide Glock 21.

Some of these may work better for you depending on your body type and clothing. I am 6' 4" and 280lbs relaxed fit type of guy.

Edited to ask: Anybody have any suggestions for carry to someone with my body type?

That's quite understandable. I feel the same way.

Hmm.....probably a 1911 in some form. Guess I'd better start shopping. (Hey, its an excuse to add to the collection right?)

[fag]I hate you! I just hate you, you big stupid bo-bo head man! [/fag]

Seriously, I'm thinking E.G. Makarov, but my example is so nice I don't want to scrape it up by carrying it around alot. Once I get a job I think I'll start saving for a Taurus or S&W .357 snubbie of some kind.

Gary, ah-hem, we'll have to go shopping! Yeah shopping!!

can you believe it??

jason and i almost bought me a lil colt .38 on saturday afternoon, since i keep getting told the ruger bearcat i want is too big to conceal (the gun store owner called it a 'cowboy gun'--i thought 'finally someone who UNDERSTANDS')

so we went home to inventory the checkbooks and jason went back less than an hour later and it was SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

whatta pain in the ASS, ladies and gentlemen--i finally find a gun i want and we can afford and it got GONE!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm thinking instead of a .357 snubbie I should look for a Taurus 445, 5 shots of .44 Special in a small package. Bet it would hurt to fire full-house defensive loads in it though.
