    Lysol,

    According to the chart, you listed the Glock 19 as "full size." The Glock 19 is a compact frame 9mm.

    I carry an XD sub-compact 9mm. In cold weather, I prefer to carry it in my Galco Miami Classic under a jacket or vest. Now that the weather is warming up, I have been carrying OWB in a Don Hume OT. It's not ideal because my belt is weak, so I am currently looking for a better option. I will probably try the Crossbreed.
    Normal clothing for me is jeans or khakis, with a t-shirt/sweatshirt/jacket.

    5'11", 185 lbs, 32"-34" waist. EDC is a Dan Wesson CBOB, in a Milt Sparks Summer Special II, at about 4 o'clock, with a reload in a Bianchi mag carrier at about 10 o'clock.

    I usually have on Wranglers or Levis with a T-shirt (tucked), and a pearl snap or button down shirt, unbuttoned/unsnapped, for cover (untucked of course). Pretty much my year-round setup. I'm not a big fan of changing out guns according to the season. One gun = one manual of arms = familiarity.

    I'm 5'10", 194 pounds, with a 34" - 36" waist, depending on the cut of the pants or shorts.

    I carry a Springfield Armory Lightweight Champion Operator .45 in a Desantis OWB 3-slot holster in the winter. Just got a Kahr PM9 for summer carry; it came with a Kramer IWB that I'm not too enthused with so I may find another option to carry it.

    My clothing pretty much year round is cargo shorts with either a sweatshirt, pullover fleece, T-shirt, or a short sleeve button up. I rarely wear pants unless I'm going to work or church. Wait, I wear shorts to church, too.

    Well, I guess there has to be one freak in every poll.

    I'm 6'1", 180 ish, and 34" waistband.

    However, I really dislike IWB or OWB carry.

    I use a shoulder rig, and as I live in the Pacific NW,

    I wear a nice heavyduty vest year round.

    That handles the CCW end.

    Throw a rain parka over the whole shebang in the winter.

    From experience, the difference between wearing a

    Belt gun or a shoulder rig, in terms of access and

    Speed of deployment are negligible.

    I have wide shoulders so I can conceal almost anything if I leave my shirt untucked. Usually carry IWB or a 642 in a pocket holster
