I typically carry an XD9SC in jeans and a t-shirt or with and untucked shirt or both. I have thought about a 380 as a BUG or in a pants pocket for when I don't feel I can conceal my XD9 well. After doing some looking and reading, I don't know that they are signigantly smaller than what I have. The shop was busy and I was in a hurry and didn't try sticking one in my pocket to see, but thin is about the only advantage I see. Am I somewhat correct or are they in fact alot easier to conceal than a typical sub compact? I have thought of an ankle holster, but like to wear cowboy boots alot and didn't know how that might hinder an ankle holster.
