    I find this difficult to believe. I carry an XD40 SC in a CrossBreed SuperTuck and have no problem concealing it whatsoever. You don't describe your build in any of your posts so that could be the problem. I know a couple heavy guys that have a hard time buying shirts that aren't tight around their waist that can't carry much of anything without it printing.

    Anyway, if it helps, my CBST is set at full forward cant and I typically wear it at about the 4:00 - 4:30 position (I'm right-handed). It tucks away nicely when wearing anything but a tight T-shirt. I can draw and fire in just over a second when wearing an un-tucked shirt and using my left hand to lift my shirt.

    Do you have a good belt? Does your CBST have the combat cut?

    Also if your not a large frame guy the supertuck isn't going to hide a full size firearm as well as it does on someone like me.

    If your really a small guy maybe you can get away with a LCP if you can stand the 380 auto caliber?

    I know i would want something with more oomph but you would be better off with a LCP you can conceal well than being paranoid about printing all day.


    But to answer the original question i would have to say get a 1911 if you can afford it, they are thin and are in the calibers you want.

    Not sure that I agree. I wouldn't consider myself a "large frame" guy - 5' 10", 175, fairly athletic build (for a 45 year-old) 31" waist, 40" chest.

    As I said earlier, I have no problem concealing my XD40 SC in my CBST.

    I'm considering a keltec p11 atm. It's 9mm and fairly small.

    Default Best Thin Profile CC - Rhorbaugh R9s 9mm

    1911/45 owners may not agree, but If you have the cash, consider a Rhorbaugh 9mm (Model R9s). This is a superb semi- with a thickness of 7/8th of an Inch. Hold 6 plus one in chamber. They have a retail price of $1000+, but they can be found for $850-$950.

    I dont like anything but to CC my 1911. Subcompact and the 4" are the best to CC IWB and most comfortable. Not to mention they are mostly in 45 acp. I wouldnt carry my XDm as its just to bulky. Maybe OWB or OC but not CC. Just my .02

    i like 1911's for CC. since they are single stack they are pretty thin. I have a springfield ultra compact which makes it even smaller to conceal. And you cant go wrong with a .45 for when it really counts
