I'll throw in Crossbreed super tuck deluxe as I've been using one for the last 4 years and am very happy with it.
Plus 1 Vote for the Super Tuck from Crossbreed. It's comfortable, doesn't print, and an excellent holster.\

I picked up a Ruger SR9-C some time back and carry it whenever I go IWB. I can't make a recommendation as to what you might like. Go shoot a bunch and make an informed decision. Lots of people love Glocks but I have a devil of a time shooting them, so they're a no go for me. Aside from that, It's my personal opinion that after decades of holster horrors and probably thousands of dollars in trying every damned holster ever made trying to find one that works for concealment, CROOSBREED hit it dead on the money. As others have stated, the Super Tuck is pure heaven to wear and makes a pistol go away like magic.

One thing I'll say about the Crossbreed from experience - minor discomfort will exist when you wear it for a short while, as the leather becomes soft and supple and conforms to both your body shape and the shape of the pistol. After about six months of daily carry - probably less - it will disappear on your belt.
Top: new mini-tuck (Ruger LCP II)
Bottom: mini-tuck after roughly a year of daily wear (Sig P938)
Both horse hide.

I actually own and carry 3 different pistols dependent on attire and situation. For summer wear of shorts and a t-shirt, I carry my Sig p938 "cocked & locked" as it is the smallest and lightest carry I own. For jeans and a t-shirt or button up, I go with my brand new Springfield XDE as it is just slightly larger and gives me a few extra rounds while still being quite small. For winter carry where I most likely will have on a long sleeve shirt plus a hoody or jacket, I carry my Springfield XD Mod2 since it has twice the ammo capacity as the other two. All 3 options are in 9mm.
Capacity is an important factor for me, largely based upon what attire an aggressor may be wearing. In winter, it may take it 2-3 rounds to get through multiple heavy layers vs summer wear of shorts and a tank top.
Btw, first post and big fan of the site.

I myself who live in S. Florida, carry a Shield 9. I usually have cargo shorts and t-shirt so my pockets hold my magazine and knife. I feel that the 7+1 and 8+1 are more than enough to carry in this hot summer weather. I'd go 2x7+1 but I like the extension. We're summer year round so I can't comment on winter carry but the Shield 9 is solid. No issues. I am looking to get a .380 though. Especially when I head out to the pool or beach.

If you don't mind spending a little more money, I would check out a Glock 43 with a Di Santis "Insider" IWB holster. I wear this all day, everyday here in my desert state. It is comfortable and of course you're carrying a Glock. Probably the most reliable polymer out there. A Sig 938 is nice but you'll have to learn the 1911 manual of arms. It is a cock and lock pistol and it is expensive. Just sayin.
