I do a lot of mowing during the season. A lot... Sweat, grime, grass clippings. I won't mention where I found a small twig while taking a shower one summer a couple years ago. While doing this stuff I've carried a Kahr CW9, Sigma 9mm, Sigma 40ve, CZ75B, Smith Wesson 5906, and a Bersa 380. Everything from fairly small to pretty big and heavy. I prefer big and heavy.
