    I'm 6'2, 240 lbs. One of my favorite carry guns is my glock 32 (same size as a G19). To me the G19/23/32 size is the best balance of concealabilty vs. "shootability". It's small enough to conceal quite easily, but isn't so small that it's a bear to shoot alot of rounds through. My carry holster is a Milt sparks summer special 2.

    5'10" 195lbs. I carry a Glock 27 in a Fobus IWB holster. I wear polo shirts and shorts(with a belt) for work all day and no one knows that I wear that setup on right hip at 4 oclock position. Am in sunshine state so that clothing is pretty much how I dress all year round.

    I carry a G23. Have tried the IWB but is a little uncomfortable with the Galco Summer Comfort. The Milt Sparks VM2 is my next holster. Right now I carry OWB with a loose button shirt and it works fine. The G23 is a great everyday carry weapon. Its concealable and has the caliber that I like for ccw.

    Im between 5'10 or 5'11, depending on wich gass station Im walking out of.
    I weigh 155lbs and in fair shape.

    I carry a G19 at 3:30 IBW with a KNJ nylon holster. The clamp is very secure. So much so, that I dont need to wear a real gunbelt for it (although a quality lether belt is needed). My only grip is the velcro retention strap. The grip fits perfecly on my body. As long as Im wearing a button down shirt, Its not noticable at all. Its very confortabke and concealable.
    Im also more accurate with my G19 than any of my other handguns. Exept my "4 GP100, I dont want to carry that heavy, thick firearm all day.

    I'm 5'8", 155 to 160 lbs.
    Glock 26 in a Tucker Cover-Up for jeans and shirt tucked in.
    Safecarry (Thunderwear) for shorts and T-shirt
    Located in hot/humid/sweaty/raining Houston so concealment is challenging.

    Im a pretty big person and i carry a G-35 longslide,but what convinced me to get a G-35 the guy at the gun shop was about 5'8" 150# to 160# you couldnt even tell he carrys.
    It's all about how you carry and what clothes you wear, Hawiian shirts are great.you could carry a Smith 500 and no one would now.
    LIFES JOURNEY IS NOT TO ARRIVE AT THE "GRAVE" SAFELY ,IN A WELL PRESERVED BODY.BUT RATHER TO SKID IN SIDEWAYS TOTALLY WORN OUT SHOUTING "HOLY S@#$...WHAT A RIDE"

    i carry a glock 19. i've also carrried a full size 1911. It's all about clothing, holster and belt choice. I typically buy my cloths one size bigger, unless i'm confident that the normal size will hide the pistol. A good holster and belt do wonders. Galco makes a good belt. i'm 5'8 155lbs

    I am 6'3" 225lbs. Primary carry gun is a Kimber Compact CDP II in a Milt Sparks Versa Max II.

    Secondary carry gun is a Glock 19 in a VMII. I know guys that are barely 5' with work boots on and weigh a buck 30 after a hearty breakfast that carry a G19 daily. You should have no trouble pulling it off.

    Went through two G26,s before I decided the G19-G36 were as easy to carry. THe G26 is good ,but the G19 is much better.
