Most of the time I carry a Glock 22. Since most of the time I wear shorts and tee shirts and carry it IWB, the only problem I have, that is if it is a problem, is that the glock prints to a point thaere is no question I'm caring. I sometimes carry a python rather than the glock. I love the python but even with the larger size of the Glock, the 16 round mag ( 15 +1), I prefer carring the larger gun. I have been came close to down sizing to a smaller Glock, but int truth, I love the G-22.
I carry one full sized FN Five-seveN and one spare magazine for a total of 40 rounds.
Bud, not a problem, waistline is smaller than hips.
I know a few SWAT cops that carry two full sized guns on duty. They are issued 9mms but they carry big revolvers.
After one of them got tore up by a pitbull that had af full magazine unloaded on it while he executing a search warrant,they got authorization to carry .44 magnums.HE got attacked by two dogs. One dropped immediatley, the other didnt.
The dog was dead...but someone forgot to tell him. You'd be amazed at the damage a pitbull can do in the three or four minutes that it takes to die.
When doing smash and crashes on known drug houses if they even think there are dogs protecting the place they'll have the .44's out front.
