Anyone who IWB or appendix carries pretty much as the same problem, but that's why you use a good IWB/ appendex carry holster, or the kydex trigger guard clip that JetGirl mentioned that many people make. THis gun also apparently comes with one from the factory. lol that made me laugh. That is an AK slant brake you are thinking of, its not a part of the barrel it is the device threaded onto the end of the barrel. So far the only thing that really looks "innovative" to me is the fact that the body and magazine of the actual gun are... curved... you can only see this if you get a picture of the gun from he back or front... well that's new. +1 to Taurus for something new. The built in light/laser concept in the front of the gun is meh....already been done. The inverse barrel cut... cool...and as Gritz said, I really don't think that will make much of an impact on accuracy if any at the distance it was meant for.
