They are kind of bulky to use as a CC weapon, but if you have long loose shirts that you can wear over the pistol it can be done.

If that is what you have or can afford, wear it IWB with a long loose shirt like waltham said. You're in 'that State up north' so, it never gets too hot for a trench coat, does it?

Once the anti gunners get going we do see 80 + degree temps. I carry in a waist band pack and I carry the JHP so weight is not a to big a deal. My biggest concern is over penetration with the .45 on the Bus.
A LEO suggested the 9 mm might be a better choice for up close.

Up close and personal I carry a .380 or .32. It seems to me that a 9mm would GI through the average person. Then again I usually carry a .45.

Agreed. I saw mention of a bus. That's close quarters. .380 would be good (and safe) for that.

A half step up from a .380 to a 9mm would be a 9mm Makarov weapon (9x18). It's bit tougher finding ammo but when you do it's cheap for the most part. I love the size of my CZ82. Fits the hand well, is made of metal and is heavy enough to limit muzzle flip, slim and smooth enough to CC, carries 12+1 cocked and locked, ambidextrous design, more accurate than most shooters. The price on them is on the way up at this point in time because they are a very good reliable gun. The primary drawback is ammo availability, can't just walk into any convenience store and buy it.

I agree with Randy, I have a Bulgarian Makarov and a FEG PA 63 in 9x18. Both are accurate and reliable.

I just bought one and it shoots perfect every time the trigger is pulled. It may not be the best looking gun a person could own, but I have shot more than 2,000 rounds and not had a problem.

The fanny pack draws attention from the wrong crowd. They practice in the cells on how to attack people from the rear to snatch a fanny pack to get the weapon. Better alternative is to wear it in the front to help conceal the C9. Then if that happens to you, you're not weaponless and the attacker suddenly only has the pack.

Then it is game on per your state's laws. :doublegun2:

Personally I'd never carry the c9 reason being weight along with the fact it lacks a firing pin block
