Well, sir, we're not here to change my mind. We're here to help you

make up yours. Have you shot all three?

Is pocket carry your only option?

I would suggest you look at other ways to carry in addition to pocket carry.

Is it just me, or does anyone else get the feeling BoB's pulling our collective chain.

Would love to shoot all three, but no way to do so in my area or any of those nearby.

And I would love to make up my mind, that's why I came here. I knew there were things I wasn't taking into consideration that you guys could help point out. Or things I was simply wrong about in my thinking.

I've had them all in my hands at a local shop, but has been probably a year since, so I'm trying my best to recollect my thoughts.

Can't go wrong with the Sig! It'd fit pocket better than XDs as well.

Oh yeah, went to shop this morning, dry fired and handled xds again, am in love. Also had p238 which I checked out, love them too, but, as stated, I don't want another coknlok, I want ready to go. The grip safety want even noticeable. Perfect fit for my hand, trigger travel isn't as great as my SA, of course, but nothing as atrocious as the typical. Now just need to check how it fits in my pocket and have to do that without a gun currently in it.

So I've decided on the XDs for sure now, however I'm thinking of maybe a second gun.
The XDs will replace my larger 9mm, now need something for "deep conceal" for summer time...
The Sig is a bit too big, I'm wondering if there's maybe a trigger mod that can be done on something like the CM9 to make it a decent gun for me.
I've seen the LC9 ha a very nice trigger mod, but it's too big...

Any ideas on second piece? Maybe I should just stick with my extremely underpowered 25? Lol

Thanks for the thoughts fellas.
