    I have full size p226 9mm with a hogue grip and it's such a bitch to carry...it's bulky, heavy, and my shirt gets caught by the rubber :sadwavey:

    Do I even have to say it? M&P and if you want it that small the compact, but I have no problem with the fullsize since it's thin.

    Whatever you do... don't think down-sizing to the P229 is going to solve your problem :rofl:
    M&P 9c is a good choice. As is a G26 or any of the calibers in that size.

    After my father carried a full-size Glock .45 for years and then a full-size Glock. 40 for years (as a police officer) he started concealed carrying a Beretta .32 once he retired.

    If that's good enough for him, it'd be good enough for me. Though I'd rather have a baggy pocket that I could fit a sub-compact .40 into.

    i had the same issue - carried a p226 for quite awhile but it would always get caught on shirts and whatnot

    got a subcompact glock and it carries amazingly compared to the sig - i'm not crazy about glocks, but i know this is a gun i can count on and i got a great deal on it - plus with the +2 glock grip extension, it'll even fit my big hands without issue

    also subcompact m&p's seem to be pretty popular and similar in size

    also i'm looking at the sig p250 whenever it comes out - has a very short handle and can hold 16 rounds of 9mm :eek3: - it is a much shorter gun than the p220 and p229 and just a little longer than the glock so whenever they come out i'll be looking at one

    I'm all for guns that fit into a pocket, but personally, I have big hands, so I basically NEED a fullsized grip to be comfortable.

    That's the same thing I thought. His Beretta .32 seemed so damned small to me that I feared I couldn't keep good shot placement. Turned out that with a little grip adjustment and practice I went from spray 5" groups to 3" groups in one session of 200 rounds.

    I say this mostly because I'm way too damned lazy to deal with a fucking IWB every day. I want something I can just slip in my pocket and be done with it, anything more and I'm likely to not bother carrying it. That being said, if my state allowed open carry I'd probably just open carry.

    Well, I'm going to CC a 1911, and probably a J-frame as a pocket gun as well, so :dunno:.

    The ultimate in reliability and concealability without having to compromise stopping power is a J-Frame, but not as Tacti cool enough for most. No racks to slide, no safeties to work and has a mean bark.

    If you want to sell it, let me know. My p32 has been reliable thru training days of 400+ rounds. The only thing that has stopped it was a clump of mud that landed in the ejection port as it was cycling, but that would have screwed up anything.
