I S&W J Frame will disapear in a pocket holster. So will a Kahr CM9. I carry a CM9 as my daily gun. You could carry that with cargo shorts and no shirt!

Simple...apply the condom principle and stay away from anything with the word "Magnum" in the title.

Leave these for us "bigger" guys...

Go to a sporting/outdoor store. Ask to hold different brands/models. Narrow down your choices to the few that u like best. Then go to a shooting range and shoot/experiment with each of your favorites that u held at the store. the one that feels the best to shoot is the one that u might want to go with. Glock 26, M&P shield, ruger lc9, Springfield xd sub compact to name a few. I carry a glock 27(27 is .40 cal and 26 is 9mm but they're physically the same size) and I'm in Houston and wear the same thing as u most of the time. I'm 6ft 180lbs. My t-shirts aren't oversized at all (large "athletic fit") and I carry IWB just behind my right hip at about 4 o'clock. The only problem I have is if my shirt is too short and I bend over or raise my arms, my shirt might catch on the butt of the pistol, but printing while walking etc isn't a problem. Good luck.
