I 2nd that. Most people when they first start carrying go threw this. You think everybody can see your pistol or everybody's watchin you. Keep on carrying you'll become comfortable and it'll be come 2nd nature

The biggest cause of being spotted is probably becuase the ccw person cant leave their gun alone. If you keep messing with it or looking down at it, you can plan on being noticed.

I would say give it time, and carry around the house if you need to get used to it. I changed holsters after about a year the other day. Spent most of the day working in the yard this weekend, and by the end of the day, I was more worried about sore legs than my new carry.

I'm always entertained by Springfield's description of a "sub-compact". There is nothing sub-compact about any of the XD's or XDM's.

I think the double stack thickness gives it away.. What are your best concealable carry options, balancing the concealable, and power? It would need to be single stack, & I do understand that height of frame is a factor to consider when choosing a firearm for concealed carry. Preferrably in either one of the calibers: 9mm, .40s&w, or .45acp, Thanks
Kahr PM or CM line...

Under 1" wide... 4" tall... Deep concealed in a belly band worn low around the hips.

PM 9 has been my EDC for 5 years now with no printing.

PM line runs about $620
CM line runs about $420

Both are available in 9 mm or .40 S&W

Tack

I also am interested about the XDS! The .45 is quite a nifty BG stopper, but a 5 round mag doesn't impress me much. But when the 9mm comes available, that would make it a little more interesting.
