Concealing the revolver isn't bad, but they tend to be heavy. Even with a good belt & pancake holster, they're heavy. A buddy of mine has the short barreled air weight model in 45acp, but you're more likely to find him packing a j frame 38 than any of his several N frames. I've owned several N frames with 3" barrels, but when a full size XD45 with 14 rounds easier weighs less and is easier to conceal than my Mod 29 w/3" barrel, the choice for me is obvious. But what the heck, give it a try and see how it works for you.
