I will give you this; if you empty that thing and still have a threat, you could bash the living crap out of pretty much anything.

True!

My panties aren't a wad at all. Sorry if my post came off that way, I was just being sarcastic.

I know I've tried heavier/bulkier guns, but they don't work for me at all. Use what works for you, just consider what I have said. You seem to have your mind made up that what you have is the besy option, I'm just disagreeing with you, wholeheartedly.

I use a Theis IWB holster that conceals and positions my firearm for drawing very easily and comfortable. You might want to give him a call and try one. I'm not a big guy 6'3" 195lbs, so I can't carry those big hog legs!

I also have the little Raspberry LCP in a Pocket Nemesis holster.

Heh no worries, Gojubrian. Sarcasm doesn't always come through the internet :P .

I don't think I have the best option. I've said multiple times in one way or another that I'm just content enough to not feel the need to spend $700 on another weapon system. It would be a poor misinterpretation to think I believe I have the best setup out there...

But, it is really that with this weapon, I can do everything I want to do well enough that I don't feel the need to spend $500-$700 on another platform when I'd rather put that money into practice and training with this.

However, if you are bothered enough to buy me a G34 I'd definitely put it to good use!


I've actually been talking to Theis about making me a holster. Since "making" my own my need has obviously dropped a lot, though, so I haven't pressed it.


As far as clubbing, I've wondered about it. My worry is that the force with which it would hit might warp the frame!

Interesting setup. Not my thing, but glad you made it work for you.
Only thing I would be really concerned about (safety wise) with that setup, is the exposed trigger.
Sit down in the car, and catch the trigger on the seat belt buckle or get it snagged on something else in everyday life (like a pogo stick) , you could have a ND and things could get messy in a big hurry.

You are very right. That is the biggest reason I still have to get an actual IWB holster made. Normally, when the holster is mounted OWB, the retention strap goes around the hammer, preventing the action from cycling. Indeed, without the strap, it is still technically possible for the exposed trigger to be actuated. I had thought about trying to sew in some stiff fabric to cover it, but decided I'd be more likely to just mess up something that already worked well enough :P .
