    Any practical differences in comfort, concealability, etc? All the added stuff is on the slide, does it feel any more cumbersome?

    Well, the standard 92 is totally huge and very difficult to conceal.

    The Brigadier is even more totally huge and very difficult to conceal.


    Since they both suck in the hide-ability department, I'd go with the stronger, lower recoil, longer lasting Brigadier.

    And a big coat.

    Assuming I could carry -- I'd take the 92FS for intimadation. I don't think of this as a concealment gun; it's just way too big for that. You can though but I think you'd have better luck in the winter than you would during the warmer months. For concealment, I'd have to go with a Beretta M, a Glock 26/27, a Sig p239 or a compact H&K.

    skunk, no matter what, the 92 is a big mother-trucker. that said, I was able to conceal mine under a t-shirt and an untucked, unbuttoned longsleeve workshirt. IWB, of course. I really don't think that the extra mass of the Brig/ Elite slide would make much of a difference. it's going to be difficult to conceal no matter what, but, when you can't get away with the cover garments for the 92, you've got the P7M8, right?

    Before the subcompact craze, and before everyone wanted .45s and .357s that weigh less than a handful of marshmallows, I carried a full-sized Beretta 92FS for years. I was always able to conceal it just fine. I think we have gotten too spoiled by Magnum revolvers made out of riboflavin, to use someone's quote from TFL days.

    A good holster and belt are much more critical to concealment than the size of the gun itself. I can pack a Smith 1066 in a Mitch Rosen ARG under a t-shirt without printing, and that gun is considered a horse pistol these days.

    Full sized HK USP. Sig P220.
    Both carried CCW with no problem. A 92? Not a problem.

    What holster and belt setup do you guys use to carry? I have no problem with a foo size 1911 but the Beretta just seems too fat...then again, I've never worn one IWB with a good holster.
