    I should not try to CC a revolver IWB; I do not think it is the rights carry method for them. Of the listed pistols I should choose the Glock 19.

    A snub nosed revolver carries well IWB. Like I said I carry my Taurus 85 UL that way in a Simply Rugged Holster. Actually can't carry it on the belt as it prints to much. Worn IWB it practically disappears.

    During cooler months, I often carry my P226 in a Crossbreed ST. It works fine for many clothing options in summer as well. You dress around your sidearm.

    I'd take a look at a springfield xd9. My fiancée and I each have one for carry. It disappears with a good holster and gun belt. I've probably got a similar build to you.

    I started with a Walther PPS in a Comp-TAC Spartan. Conceals great and is very comfortable.

    I didn't think I could carry/conceal a full size pistol, but eventually bought a supertuck for a full size M&P .40, and was amazed that it worked/concealed fine.

    I carry both a full sized 1911 (5") and a compact (3.5") with no problems. Both are comfortable to carry and conceal well depending on the cover garment. In cool weather with a flannel shirt I can get away with the bigger grip of the full sized and the compact is easily tuckable without a cover over a dress shirt.
    All depends on body size and holster type and you'll probably change your mind several times (and end up with a drawer full of holsters like the rest of us )

    I comfortably carry a 1911 5" or a Sigma 40 IWB. I'm 6'4" and 260 lbs. Both of these guns completely disapear under a loose fitting t-shirt.

I know it wouldn't be as powerful as a 9, .40 or .45, and I don't expect it would be the most fun range gun to shoot, but it would provide a defensive handgun that either I or any other family member could use in a pinch.
    I have an older S&W M36 .38 that I use with a Side Guard Holsters IWB "tuck clip" holster that has worked out very well for me. I rarely tuck it in, but it tucks pretty easy and, depending on the tucked shirt, conceals very well. It's also extremely easy to slide the holster on and off.

    So far I've never had a problem concealing a revolver, but I'm just over 6'1 and about 215.

    My wife is not a fan of firearms in general (a work in progress) but like you I have confidence that she could pick it up and shoot it without having to mess with racking the slide, etc.

    just my opinion on your situation....

    the j-frame is small, lightweight, easy to conceal, the wife can shoot it...however she might not want to shoot it enough to train with it due to the recoil....just something to consider

    used G19/26 might be good with your budget....you may have to save up more and get a new one though

    now to answer your title question:
    I first carried my HK USP full size 45 IWB with a tuckable holster
