    Until you do this, you're just flapping in the wind letting everyone give you their favorite........

    So get a Glock. I prefer my 26.

    My Dan Wesson CBOB rides IWB MUCH, MUCH more comfortably than my Glock 22 does. I was never fan of IWB until I started carrying my 1911...now that's about the only way I carry.
    The keys to winning a gunfight are first to bring a gun and secondly to take your time, quickly.

    Always remember that if your opponent is within range, so are you.

    The smooth thin profile of a 1911 does lend itself better to IWB than anything else I've tried. The big .45acp is a bonus!

    1911 all the way. Thin and easy to conceal. Punches a big hole and easy to control with a little practice. Lots of fine semi's out there in your price range, especially used.

    I've been looking at 10mms. You guys think a Dan Wesson CBOB would carry better IWB than a Glock 29?

    Absolutely. You just have to decide whether or not you want to commit to the 1911 lifestyle. Cocked and locked carry, manual of arms, more intense maintenance, etc... Personally, I love it. But, it's hard to beat the simplicity of a Glock...but you can't beat a 1911 for comfortable IWB carry.

    That's what I think. YMMV.

    Yup, consider a 1911!

    But first, go shoot some guns before you plunk down any loot. Go to a range that rents guns and try several.
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    1911 is not for everybody, I just could not get over that hammer cocked and ready to drop. I know they are safe, but it seemed to me that the slightest bump would drop that hammer. I could not get past it, so I got me a Walther P99 Compact and have been very happy with it.

    A Hi-Power in a Milt Sparks Watch Six. That's thin and comfy.

    I would suggest you look at the Walther P99c or maybe even a full-size in .9mm or .40. Walther makes excellent pistols and deserve a look. They aren't the most popular gun, but that is not because they aren't great guns.

    The Walther PPS is an option too, but they are harder to find right now.

    My new carry gun is a full size Sig 220 Equinox. I was carrying a 3" Kimber Ultra Carry. For some reason, my 220 doesn't fell much bigger. I know it is, but holster choice makes such a big difference, I think that is more important.

    For instance I hated to carry my 1911 IWB, until I got a McDaniel holster with the cover over the safety, then it was much better. Now that I got a VM II for my Sig, I actually prefer IWB to OWB.

    Although there are guns that are more enjoyable to shoot, none can come close to the concealability, thinness and lightness as Kel-Tec PF9. I carry this 7 +1 9mm 90% of the time when I need to be very concealed. If a cover garment will work for the day, I go with my Glock 27. For around $300 the PF9 is very hard to beat. But it really all depends on how concealed you want to be.

    Alot of what people can or should carry can depend on there body type. I'm 6'3, 280lbs. I carry a HK usp compact in 9mm. in a crossbreed. But the holster can make or break it. I shopped around at different gun places around here and online trying to find the right rig. Ended up with the crossbreed.. only because it fit, was comfortable and worked with the clothes I wear.
