I'm new to this forum, but have spent a while perusing the topics and liked what I saw enough to join. I've carried concealed off and on for a few years but will be making it a regular habit now that I have a family and that the region where I live is quickly going to the dogs (south Puget Sound area).
My question for all of you is how big (physical size) of a handgun do you carry in relation to your stature? I'm carrying P229 SAS .40 IWB @ 4:00. It's a wonderful gun and it is the one I have the most proficiency with. However, I'm 5' 8", 160lbs so I feel like it is a really large gun for my body type. I have a simple Galco leather holster that sucks the grip into my body quite nicely, and as far as I can tell in the mirror printing isn't a huge issue for me. As an EMT by trade I am perpetually broke so purchasing a smaller handgun is out of the question (the Sig was a gift).
Since I'm still somewhat getting used to concealed carry I think it might make me feel better to know other members can conceal larger pistols too. Whenever I carry I'm all too aware of the seemingly huge piece on my hip, and worried I may be overlooking some huge giveaway. Most likely n00b jitters?
Looking forward to hearing your replies!
