I've always felt like barrel length is secondary to grip size for CCW. If you can comfortably carry a Elite you can carry an FXS. (Appendix carry excluded )
I love my FXS but have it raced out with a sub 3.5 trigger and unless I'm open carrying (Thank you Texas!) I like a slide safety for condition 1 carry.
That said with a proper holster the SFX is as carry-able as any 1911 and a very capable firearm!
