    Do you carry a full sized firearm? (quick survey)

    I was wondering who does this every day or almost everyday. By full sized, I mean any gun around the size of a Glock 17/22, SIG P226, HK USP, Berretta 92, 1911 etc.

    I recently purchased a Glock 22 that I am probably going to CCW often (I can conceal it easily under just a T-shirt with the exception of a thin / tight shirt, especially white).

    I was just curious as to what the general trend is of those who carry full sized firearms regularly as well as their general body type (height, build etc).

    My poll only includes height, but anything would be great.

    I myself am 6'2" and have a pretty average build (not fat, not super skinny).

    Also, for added discussion, what do you carry?

    Also, if not, what is your height and build?

    Aren't there any other "runts" that carry full size weapons.

    There are mid size guns that shoot and handle just like a larger full size ones. Check out the Glock 26. There is no need to carry a full size pistol.

    Im 6'4 140lbs and carry a Sigma with a 4" barrel. Same size as a G19, so its technically not full size, but it gets kind of tough to conceal sometimes.

    Baby Glocks don't fit my hands, comfortably, even with grip extensions. The Glock 22 fits my hand the best out of of the 26/27, 19/23 and 17/22 models.

    I am 6' 1" and I carry a H&K P2000 or my Colt Lawman. I will soon be getting a Ruger GP100 with a 3 inch barrel that I will be putting in my rotation.
