    I have one, and it has never had a problem...very easy to conceal as it is a single stack.
    I know 6 different individuals with G-36's and no one has had a problem!

    Glock 29! You have the .380 and 9mm covered. Otherwise a Commander sized 1911. Hmmm... DW CBOB .45 or 10mm?

    Did you look at the S&W m&p40c or M&P 45? I like their ergonomics better than the Glock. Also look at the Springfield xds. If you want to stay w/ the Kahrs look at the k,p or tp families. If you are carrying IWB, why give up capacity and stability for compactness. The Kahrs and 1911's have the thinness that you might want. I have a pm9 for pocket carry and love it, but it's nowhere as easy to shoot as my full size Smith.

    I don't think a Glock 30 is too big to carry. Its just bigger than the tiny guns you have so far. Get something bigger! Your wallet will thank you.

    Oh...wait....it won't...

    I have been there and done that. I used to carry a P9 everywhere, untill I aquired a 1911 government model. I now realize that there is a gigantic difference between the power and acuracy of a .45 over a 9mm. I feel naked without the Colt by my side.

    G27.. If need be you can put a 9mm barrel conversion in it.
    Glock 19/FEG/FM HiPowers/Keltec P32 for me. When I can't use my 870,N98 or Marlin .30-30 of course...

    I think that is stretching the truth a bit. Now if we were comparing 9mm to a 10mm I would concur. But when you compare the 124 gr. +P loads to a .45 ACP I don't think there is much if any difference. The 124 gr. weight and +P velocity was actually the original load of 9mm. The loads have been downloaded in the USA since then to not beat "junk guns" all to heck.
    Glock 19/FEG/FM HiPowers/Keltec P32 for me. When I can't use my 870,N98 or Marlin .30-30 of course...

    First you mentioned IWB carry. That works best with a thin weapon. Any 1911 or Rugers new SR9 come to mind. All of the Kahr's are also thin. Glock has one or two thin weapons but the rest are pretty wide, not the best for IWB.

    You also mentioned a preference for 40 or 45. They do have the best stoppping power rating but 9mm is really really close in effectivness with more in the magazine and more accurate follow up shots due to lower recoil. I personally would rather have 16+ rounds of 9mm than 8 rounds of 45. But that's just me and everybody has a different opinion about the trade offs regarding caliber selection.

    Some of the guns on you list are similar in size to the two you already own. I think your next purchase should be no smaller than "compact" as you mentioned and possibly full size.
