I have gone back and forth between my Ruger (thin) and my Beretta (thick). I think with certain clothes (e.g. dress clothes for the office), I wouldn't be able to carry the Beretta, because it would be too noticeable. Generally I wear jeans, so that's not an issue. But the thicker gun is harder to slip out of my pocket, should I need to draw my weapon. The thinness of the Ruger makes it extremely easy to draw the weapon.The subcompact is ... a bit "fat".
Right now I'm liking the Beretta more because my belt reduces the effect of the increased weight of the Beretta; and I REALLY like a DA/SA gun. Of course, it has 14 rounds vs the 8 rounds of the Ruger.
I'm sure next month I'll be back to the Ruger.
