    With a Wild Bill’s Summer Heat IWB I have no problem concealing a Model 96.

    Pretty much any size weapon can be concealed if you are willing to adapt your clothing. Lots of people conceal full-size handguns like the 92 and 96. If you don't want to do that the Px4 is a good little gun in either 9mm or .40. Or you can always put a 950 Jetfire in your pocket and pretend you are well-armed.

    Dress around the gun and you can conceal almost any handgun you want to. Wear an untucked shirt 1 size larger than you normally do and you should be able to hide a full size pistol. You need a good pancake style holster and a good quality gun belt. Also don't bend over, kneel instead. When you reach high for something don't raise your elbow above your shoulder to help avoid having your shirt rise up over your gun. If you need to reach higher then use your other arm.

    I carry my PX4 subcompact with a Crossbreed Supertuck with no problems.

    I carried a Taurus PT-99 for years. This is the same gun as the Beretta M9 but the safety is in a much better location (same spot as on a 1911). I didn't have any trouble concealing it at all.

    ^^ This.

    Much will depend on your body shape and clothing choices. If your shoulders are narrow and you're "flat as a board," then it's likely anything other than a flat sidearm's gonna stick out like a sore thumb. But even under those conditions, with some subtle clothing changes (like a larger shirt with color/shade patterns, and/or a covering garment like a jacket) you can fix the problem of "printing."

    It also depends on how you carry it and how that gun/holster/belt combination keeps the gun from "printing." You can have the best clothing and body shape in the world (for hiding a firearm), but it's likely to be seen if you have a loose and floppy belt holster that doesn't hold the gun close to your body.

    Like some have said, many carry full-size weapons up to the size of 1911 Government 5in or Beretta 92 pistols. Myself, I've carried a CZ P-01 for years, as well as a H&K P2000SK, Browning BDM 9mm, S&W 442 revolver, and a couple other sub-compact pocket pistols.

    As with pistol selection, there are lots of choices in clothing, holster, belt and carry method (IWB, OWB, pocket) that'll determine whether you're able to successfully discreetly carry concealed. We can give suggestions based on what has worked for ourselves, but only you are going to be able to find out for sure.

    Suggestion: Get a great belt, one designed to carry a larger, heavy firearm easily. Get an inexpensive generic holster for toying around with fitment, one that can temporarily be used with a wide variety of guns. Then, play around with holstering a few different guns and see how your clothing and the carry position changes things. Ultimately, with experience I think you'll find a combination that suits you well.

    With a shoulder rig and a jacket or coat, you can conceal almost any size handgun. There are just so many options and variations...

    I carry my Beretta px4 compact 9mm whenever I can, which is about 40% of the time. If I had a better holster (which I am getting soon) this pecentage should improve.

    I have packed my 92FS strongside in a Galco Combat Master without discomfort or concealment problems. Besides a good belt and holster combo I have found suspenders to be a real aid in carrying heavy guns. An adequate cover garment is needed for concealment of course.

    If you really want to carry a full size Beretta, the PX4 Storm is a good choice for you for concealed carry .

    I've carried my 92FS in a Reinforced mouth IWB Holster for years. It requires a good belt (Beltman), though.

    Good luck to you and stay safe.

    I can carry a 45 PX4 with no problem, Not as long as the 92 but at least as bulky.
