Baby Desert Eagle for concealed carry?

Has anyone used the all steel, compact, 45 acp Baby Eagle aka Jericho, aka EAA Witness for concealed carry? Just wondering how that works. I'm looking for something more carry-friendly than my current Ruger P95 (ok, almost everything in the gun world is more carry-friendly than that), and I'd like to move up to 45 at the same time. I've read great things about the Baby Eagle, but I suspect it's probably not much smaller than what I have now.

The other gun I've been looking at seriously is the RAI compact 1911, with 3.5 inch barrel.

I've been told these are actually well built carry guns.
My instructor has a friend who bets his life on one.

That's very encouraging. Have you heard anything about whether it is difficult to conceal? It seems large, just based on the specs; but those can be deceiving.

I want one in 45 ACP/ I did a lot of google searches on these recently, and unfortunately, there are not many holster options. If you go with a leather holster, however, you can probably get away with a CZ75 holster, or a Witness holster. I like polymer holsters, and this makes things more complicated.

The 9mm/40 cal versions of the baby eagle will also be easier to find holsters for.

If I get one, it will be for concealed carry. I already conceal a Beretta 92FS IWB everyday. That's about as big as you can get. So, I'm not worried about hiding a baby eagle.

All of these desert eagles appear chunky.
Even the little .380 looks like a little fatty.
With the right holster I would not think it would be too difficult to conceal, some people manage to conceal HP C9s! (Don't hate me for this but I'm actually curious enough to try that).
Kholster makes some fantastic holsters for large framed guns.

Thanks for the feedback. Y'all have settled my mind on the baby eagle. I'll let you know how that turns out.
