Generally larger and thicker pistols are harder to conceal. However some holster designs and clothing choices can overcome these issues. One additional thing is that larger caliber and full size handguns are heavier.

RMF (or anyone else who owns a FS9 or FS40 and a 45c) Can you post pictures of the two, comparing sizes?

A caliber conversation thankfully avoided. Whew--that was a close one.
I only wanted to mention that, while I don't think a gun that's .25" shorter adds much to concealability in the same setup, you might find that even a little bit less length makes high-ride OWB setups a bit more practical and easier to draw from. High-ride can be a bit of a challenge for old guys like me who have lost some flexibility.

1/4 inch difference in barrel length doesn't make an appreciable difference. !/4" difference in grip length can be the difference that gives you away especialy if you lean forward.
I carry a 45c most of the time and a 45fs occasionaly in the same Galco Summer Comfort IWB at 3:00 to 3:30. The full size shows when I lean forward and the compact doesn't. The high ride seems to agree with this old guy.

Actually, I've been thinking about a similar question with my G19. Would a FS M&P be that much harder to conceal? I understand that the 45c is very close to the G19 in size. I can't conceal the G19 very well anyway when it gets warm. I've been lusting over a FS M&P 9.
