At work-having to wear a dress shirt and no jacket I carry my KT P11 in a Defender belly band. Also, being a southpaw, It sits under my right arm in a reverse cant. Not a quickdraw, but NOBODY even knows I have it on. When running around town, I carry my XD9 sc in a IWB at my 11 o'clock with my shirt tail out.
Well, i found this post again, and now that I've got my permit I can officially say that my carry is my XD45.
"I no longer list firearms I own as a signature. Why give them another list to use when they come to get them?"
First choice is a Springfield Mil-Spec 1911A1 5" in a Galco CCP.
When circumstances require a something smaller, a S&W model 60. This is usually my choice in warmer months.
From time to time I will even take my Mauser hSC .380 out on the town, so she won't feel neglected.
My picture in my previous post to this thread doesn' seem to be coming up, I will try again. I have an updated picture anyway. I just go some slim line VZ gatorbacks for it.

sorry the quality is not very good all I have is the camera on my cell phone.
No matter really though. I've about decided that I'm going to sell the Smith and put the $$ towards an XD-45 compact, maybe the .45 Service model, but I just bought my wife an XD-40 Service and though it's nearly the same size overall of my Smith, it's 2 or 3 ounces lighter and much more comfortable to wear IWB because of the elimination of the safety/decocking lever.
Anyway, back on topic, here's a couple of better pics of my S&W 4563TSW:

Until recently I have been carrying a S&W 38 spl with 2 inch barrel either in a pocket holster or OWB . A couple of months ago I purchased a Kel-Tec 9mm PF-9 and have been checking it out at the range and starting to carry IWB behind the right hip in the belt only. I have shot 250 rounds thru it and with no problem, so now have ordered a CrossBreed OwikClip IWB holster which should be great for such a small-thin pistol.
When tucked into my belt and with even a fairly snug shirt, it can not be seen and has been fairly comfortable, so I expect with the CrossBreed it will be perfect.
I carry an XD-9 service and my girlfriend carries a G26.

I carry glock 19, with two extra mags for comfort. My load is federal 124 HST.
Pocket carry my Keltec P3AT, or wear one of my GLocks IWb, G19, 23, 26 & 27. Also recently got a nice 1911 and fine fitting UGB holster. Was surprised how comfortable it was and how well the 1911 slipped in behind my hip. Never thought I could pull that off with a 5" 1911.
