    Welcome Aboard from a dad of 'only' four and a retired sailor! My first carry sidearm (way back when) was a full sized 1911, I loved it and it concealed well on my (back then) slim frame. Buckeye's right, and quality belt and holster WILL make all the diffrence. I think that Defender'll be a good choice.

    I carried a Kimber Ultra (3" like the defender) for a while and switched it to a commander size (well, 4.1" anyway) for a long time after that. Loved both of the guns and especially loved how the commander handled.

    Didn't love the weight and capacity after awhile, however and now carry a Glock 26 while waiting for my 19 to come back from Bowie Tactical..

    I agree with buckeye. If you're going to carry a metal gun you NEED to invest in a good solid belt and holster or you're going to have comfort issues in the long run.

    Welcome aboard!

    Welcome , some good advice already. a 3" or 4" gun may work well for you. I found the 4" seems to carry more comfortably for me.

    In that size I like Glock 36 or Glock 30. By the way, I love Colt so this is just my honest opinion.

    You are really going to like your Glock, but I suspect you already knew that. What all are you having done on it?

    Welcome from Western Ky, cannot go wrong with your choice, IMO ... good holster and a good GUN belt....don"t put a thousand dollar gun in a 20 dollar holster n wear it on a wal mart belt.....
