    I have a 740 as well. It's the primary pistol in my carry rotation. I carry IWB at 3:00 in a DeSantis SofTuck. Very comfortable.

    Your are right! A thinner firearm is always more comfortable (and a bit more concealable).

    If you wear lose pants/shorts you can also pocket carry it in a pocket holster.

    I've even pocket carried without a holster and the safety engaged. The 709/740 is so small you'd hardly notice its there!

    I pocket carry mine during the summer sometimes. I have a couple pairs of shorts that work great for pocket carry of the 740.

    I found even small changes in position can make big improvements in comfort. But in the sweet spot, I hardly know its there.
