All of these aspects are important, though the order may vary a bit from person to person. Size is the most critical factor with consideration to conceal carry purposes - for me, anyways.

Size is not a huge deal. I'm licensed so I don't care if somebody gets a glimpse of it but weight is a major factor. I don't want to be pulling my pants up all day long.

How well you can shoot the pistol everything else is secondary if you can’t hit what you are shooting at

Reliability is 1st and foremost.

The KelTec .32 in the pocket beats the HK USP .45 you left in the glovebox. If the gun can’t be concealed or is difficult to carry you won’t carry it or you will be discovered carrying it. For CC, size, then reliability, then other attributes.

Size is definitely important, but to me I prefer to have the proper ratio of size to power. What good is a mouse gun that can't deal a good wallop? I don't feel undergunned with my .357 snub, or with my g43 (I carry one or the other depending on whether or not I'm at work).

As Jake says, small and light enough that you actually always carry it. My Bersa 380 Combat is easy on my VERY bad back, and The Lovely Wife appreciates hers, its light weight in her purse. Please, carry, and let it be seen. A tourist from New Zealand asked if mine was real, then said "How terrifying!" We need to each help change this limited attitude. Cheers!
