    I've never been a fan of Kahr pistols, shot a couple and always felt like they would require a lot of breaking in (stiff triggers, slide was hard as hell to rack, tons of recoil). Granted, that was quite a while ago (10 years or so) so things may have changed. As for the others, I've only ever shot full size M&P and XDs, and while I actually prefer their grips, I liked the Glock trigger more.

    Given that I carry a Glock 17 for work every single day, and have poured tens of thousands of trouble free rounds through it, I just feel better with a Glock product on my side.

    That being said, NOTHING feels better than a Walther PPx and H&K VP in the hand. They've absolutely nailed the ergonomics aspect of striker fired pistols.

    The guns I'd prefer over it are the Kahr CM9, Springfield XDs, M&P Shield and Kel Tec PF9 to a smaller extent just not a nice gun though it is reliable, and well 3/4 of them are slimmer if not smaller overall. The CM9 is very close to the Glock I think that is splitting hairs, but I prefer the Kahr's trigger and slide finish. An obvious example is the Kel Tec PF9 which is the slimmest and one of the smallest 9mms around. I used to have one, and after some deburring of the trigger guard it was fine though uncomfortable to shoot and had a finish that didn't hold up that great, I had 2 little surface rust spots come up in a year of use, though it was getting sweaty because of how I was carrying it. I eventually replaced it with a Kahr CW380 because it made a better pocket gun, the PF9 was just a little too big for that and it wasn't fun to shoot or usable by my wife (slide too stiff and slim) so I sold it.

    Non-subcompact wise I like my Glock 19 but I've considered selling it from time to time because I just don't like Glock ergonomics, just about every other pistol I've shot feels better in my hand and points better for me than my 19. I've been holding out for a PPQ M1. Just as ugly as the Glock but feels way better in my hand, and the trigger is so much better it's barely comparable. The magazine release on the trigger guard gets me too, a gimmick to some people but I actually really like it.

If you're dressed to carry a 26 you can probably carry a 19 instead, because it's no subcompact/pocket gun unless you're a giant like Hickok45. Still, there are other single stack 9s I'd have over a Glock 43, most of them are slimmer.
    Which single stacks are thinner than the 43? I didn't really go test out many options because I knew I would ultimately end up sticking with my beloved Glocks. Hard to imagine anything being much slimmer!

    I think the 43 is the smallest gun I can comfortably shoot, and even considered a hogue grip to add a bit of girth.

    Nice to know it works perfectly for you. I got also mine for G26 made from Kydex material. How about if you're driving a car? I read an article from a good site about cc holsters for vehicles (https://gunnewsdaily.com/reviews/veh...ers-concealed/) because I have to be sure if carrying it with you while driving is safe and legal. What do you think?

    Let me know. Thanks:)
    I almost never remove my pistol for driving, thankfully I've never really experienced discomfort from carrying on my hip while driving.

    I like the idea of those magnets though. I have the benefit of falling under LEOSA and can carry legally almost anywhere in the USA. The places I'm not supposed to? Well, if you're carrying correct they'll never know :)

    I did actually look at those holsters, decided against it 1) because the price of the NT was too good to pass up, and 2) I don't always wear a belt, so having clips to secure over my waist band comes in handy pretty often. Those loops would require the wearing of a belt..

    Can't recommend Phlster enough. Spendy for sure but awesome products

    I bought a tlr1 for the nightstand guna while back, and although stream lights are a little pricey, they are damn well worth the $$. Good choice.
    Ended up going with an NT Hybrid holster at the recommendation of a coworker. If I don't like it, I'll probably pick up a Tulster holster as they seem pretty highly recommended.

    This is also my nighstand gun, figured it would be a good idea to have a light source should I ever actually need it at night... :)

    I've shot one pistol with a red dot, and it was on a g17l some guy at the range had.

    That said, it was ridiculously accurate.

    I got a leupold dpp on my 509tac. Once you get used to having an optic on a pistol its cheating. I got it zero’d and was hitting the same spot almost every time. My only gripe is that when i was shooting for some reason unburned powder and a little bit of oil residue got on the glass and it had to be cleaned







    On a side note. I was made aware that my LGS offers “conjugal visits” for you when you buy a suppressor from them and are waiting for the stamp to come in. Makes it even more tempting to buy.
