Beretta M9A3 w/TLR-1HL riding in a JM Custom Kydex OWB2 at 4:30 or thereabouts. I absolutely LOVE this damn handgun, and it's been a champ from day one.
The chocolate Beretta was a Valentines Day gift from my sweetheart, who carries a Beretta 92FS Compact. She is definitely a KEEPER!
That 3-tone 92 is gorgeous.

Taurus Spectrum 380. Sure is nice and small. Took it to the range and shoots very good. Just purchased a Taurus 357 and may be switching to it soon and selling this 380. I'll have to see if it carries as well as my 380.

What is a "Hip Grip"?
There's a lot of history bound up in that question but I'll make this short.

The Hip Grip (and the Lip Grip and the Clip Grip) is a stock for revolvers that flares out at the top to provide a place to snag clothing. When you put one inside your belt, the lip atop the grip catches your pants or belt and prevents the pistol from sliding down inside your pants. There's also the ClipDraw which accomplishes the same thing by screwing a metal plate to the side of the pistol. The ClipDraw, unfortunately, seems to be a semi-auto only device these days; I don't see where they keep anything in stock for revolvers.

I refer to this whole class of devices as "Enhanced Mexican Carry."

AFAIK, the only grip like this still being made is the Clip Grip by DeSantis. The original Barami Hip Grip is discontinued but the remaindered stock is being sold off on eBay. I have both and even though I once had preferences, over time I've gotten to where I like them both equally.

ETA: More info previously posted on TGT here, here, here, and here.

Barami Hip Grips are / were a set of grips for revolvers, that have a "hook" for lack of a better term on the right side panel. This hook lets you tuck the gun into your pants using the hook to prevent it from falling through. If you Google "Barami Hip Grip" the stock images are better than I have.
Desantis makes a comparable item that is actually more comfortable to shoot.
