I agree with what has been said already for the most part. I am 6'0, 190 and have hardly any body fat. There just aren't that many places to hide a bigger gun on me. The biggest gun I carry out and about is a Kahr CW9 because it fits well OWB with a bigger shirt, and I carry my keltec when I'm just foolin around running errands. I'd like to carry a bigger caliber, but just haven't gotten around to buying one that would suit my needs.

Kimber 3" in alloy frame.... Is this lightweight or does it have a little heft.
All I know is that it makes a good all day carry.

After shooting an LC9 I knew it wasn't the pistol for me. I was very happy with my Cheetah when I carried. I now have a Beretta Nano and feel its a great balance in terms of size and weight.
