There are pistols that are dimensionally smaller like the Boberg XR9, but that pistol has certain types of ammo that work with it and certain types that don't.

Is it possible to re-work your concealment system for the pistol you already have?

If you like your Glock, why change the weapon if a better or different holster will be more comfortable?
Good points!

I have an SR9c and recently looked at a bunch of smaller 9's. The Kahr and the LC9 are pretty similar and I did not like the triggers on either. It came down to the XDs 9 and the Shield. I chose the Shield primarily because it was 4 oz lighter than the XDs. If I were to get and XDs it would be in 45acp. Operation is the same as my SR9c. Get a Remora holster with the full sweat shield and you are good to go. It will fit in the pocket of my cargo pants and shorts but you can wear a Remora with a bathing suit and t shirt. The other pistol I looked hard at was the Sig 938 but it was twice the price of the Shield. I have put 50 rounds of fmj followed by 50 rounds of xtp with no malfunctions.

Right. I knew there was a "BodyGuard" .38. One of my Uncles' had one for Off Duty, and My FIL had a Matte Nickel Ch. Special....and i did know that more recently they introduced the .380, and they have a .9mm Ch. Special similar to my 39/439 series...

A nod to and a vote for the SCCY. Well made little gun, easy to handle and shoot (even for a less experienced shooter like me) and pretty darn easy to carry. I'm a small slim guy and I can carry most anywhere with this gun.

Couple the above with the fact that it is inexpensive and well-backed (lifetime warranty) and it is not a bad carry gun, at all.

I have really enjoyed mine and feel very comfortable with it.
