    I have a Glock 26, but often find it's thickness to be a comfort problem while carrying IWB.
    Yup,I know the routine...good belt,over sized pant waist,quality holster...etc.

    But with all the extra thin pistol brands and models out there I'd like to hear which one you've tried and concluded was your favorite?

    Ruger LC9. Had it over a year and I trust it. Yes the trigger sucks.

    I'll sum it up in one response: Shield, P238, LC9, P38T, Kahr PM9, LCP, P938, HK P7, XDs, PPS, and of course the guy that will say he CCWs a full size 1911 so he wants to know why you can't carry a G26.

    Kahr CW9, CM/PM9, Shield/XDS (preference).

    I stiill find myself going back to the 27 though...just can't beat it. I just dress around it.

    Wasn't full-size. I used to conceal carry a Combat Commander.

    My daughter's b/f is a U.S. Capitol police officer, and he conceals his G22 quite well under a T-shirt.
    That is NO B.S.

    Glock 36. Just bought one and haven't even fired it yet. It feels so damn good though. I've been wearing it around the house in a crossbreed holster.

    The thinnest Glock made.

    The Shield is more comfy, but my 27 sees more time right now. I have no idea, why I prefer it either. Maybe the warm fuzzy feeling of a couple more rounds? Idk.

    The Shield looks interesting for sure. I hadn't heard of it before this thread. I'd like to see one in person. Its only a little bit thinner than a Glock 36 almost the same capacity and its only 9mm or .40. If it didn't have a manual safety I'd be interested in it.

    Smith and Wesson 908 and Colt 1911's. Any of them are good to go.

    P238 is a great pocket gun. I don't do single stacks for belt carry.
