.40 S&W M&P, full-size. It's more of a 'bulge carry' as it were, but open carry is legal in Minnesota for permit holders.

I carry a Kimber TLE II every day. Before that I carried a S&W Model 19 (4") every day... (there was a period with a Glock 26 in between)...

When I carry it is one of two full size. The first being a Ruger Security Six 4" in an old Bucheimer Federal Man holster at 9 O'Clock. The other is a Beretta Model 96 in a nylon Safariland at 7 O'Clock. Had a shoulder rig for the Ruger but didn't care for it much. At 6'3" and 300lbs. I can conceal whatever I want.

I carry a full size Beretta 92FS everyday in a Galco Royal Guard or MOB holster. It's not that big of a challenge even this time of year in Mobile, Alabama

Full size CC

The first handgun I carry concealed was my BHP. With the right holster and wardrobe, one can conceal any handgun. I wore an IWB holster, shoulder holster with baggy shirts, etc...
One must learn to dress for concealment, not fashion.

I bought my XDm for fun at the range and didn't think I would carry it with the huge grip as I'm 6'2 180. I actually carry it often around the house, out running the dogs in the woods and sometimes out in colder weather. It conceals OK with the right gear and watching your movement. I'm very involved with family, both my siblings have kids as well as the wife's family, I constantly have several youngsters climbing on me or getting me to play whatever game they're hot on. Full size handguns, at least for my body, only conceal with normal and minimal movement. I don't feel all that much is sacrificed with my little wheelie, I know it will always go bang and have fired it so much it's an extension of myself. I think its all personal preference, where you live, and what and who you're involved with that dictate carry preference.
