I have 2 sigma 40's and a xdm 3.8 40 all of them hi cap mags. I work in a convenient store I found that those are kind of heavy to carry all day and I've spent hundreds on holsters all types and brands. There good for a couple of hours but I wouldn't recommend a all day carry.

A full size gun is harder to conceal but it is possible. I carry a full size Glock often, IWB in a hybrid style holster in jeans or shorts and a tee shirt during the summer with no problem. If printing is an issue try shirts with a pattern instead of solid colors. Carry position is also helpful but most people are oblivious to someone carrying unless it is printing severely.

Body shape and size also play as a factor for concealed carry so you may have to work to find a rig that works for you. Youtube has several good videos on different carry options, check them out and see what you think will work for you.

A loose shirt covers a lot. I know one guy that carries a Mak 10 45 with a 20 round mag concealed in a shoulder rig. He is built for it. I could not do it. He works in a gun shop. I carry a Ruger SR9c when I can or a Sig 238 when I cant dress to cover the larger gun. If my hand gets better, I may go back to the G36.

I am 120 lbs and 5'11" so Im kinda thin. I carry a full size CZ-85 on occasion. Yes I do have to dress around it but that doesnt really bother me. I also carry a CZ P-07 and just have to wear a large t-shirt instead of a medium to cover that. The P-07 is about the same size as the sigma so I figure your gun should conceal just as well. Personally I never trusted my sigma enough to carry so it is gone now but if you trust that gun carry it and you should be fine.

My first gun I bought when I got my ccw permit was a sw40 sigma. I carried it for 5 months in a galco stow n go holster with no problems! No one ever knew I was carrying. I now carry a Springfield xd sub compact 9mm the sigma is a little heavy and harder to conceal. I now use it as a bedside gun for home defense not a bad gun in my opinion..

If you cannot conceal a Sigma, you are not trying very hard. I appendix carry a 40C on a regular basis w/o any difficulty.
