I've thought about it, but my thoughts don't go far. I don't want someone to check out my butt and go "oh that guys got a gun" lol

Both my Sub Compacts(a Stock RugerLC9 which has 600+ rds. through it and is getting a Laser Lyte installed next week & a 30+ year old Modded S&W 39/439 from ASP,..both hold 7+1)fit well in both my Holsters of choice for them,..A Blackhawk Pocket Holster & a DeSantis Insider) advise against +p rounds on a steady diet, but handle 115 Gr. FMJ's just fine....
Although I love my 1911's, I'm very happy since i made the switch in the late 80's from .45 to .9 as my Carry..Your results may vary
What do you think about carrying with one in the torpedo tube?

Appreciate the help, no problem with the misunderstanding
And keep in mind, something you read on the Internet can only offend you as much as you allow it

As in the chamber? Yes always. You will not have the ability to rack the slide in a situation. I am trying to find the link to a video that proves this.

Generally depends on your gun. In my opinion, if it has a thumb safety, definitely put one in the tube when out and about. With no thumb safety, if there's a good long ish trigger pull, again put that sucker in the tube.

With a holster which doesn't move too much and covers the trigger guard, I see no problems with it.

Singshotting the slide is just one more step, than can go wrong when you need everything to go right. Plus it adds a second or two to when you are ale to fire. It may not seem like a lot, but that extra two seconds could be life saving or life taking if he has a gun in your face.

As stated, if your choice of CCW allows it,....I do.
Waiting for Ruger to make the new 9 rounders for the LC9...Ruger is about 6 months behind, and none of my LGS's have them...

Since nobody has just come out and said it, a Glock 19 is my advice. New in box at my LGS is $509. It's a great gun.

Why not just go with the G26 for better concealibility and carry maybe a G17/G19 magazine (as backup)?

They're all Glocks in my personal opinion, what makes the 19 good? Besides size of course

Haha, ye, I had that fear at first. So I don't blame you, but my wife doesn't even notice usually until she hugs me and says "are you carrying". If I had a lot of extra money I suppose I would opt for a smaller if I found one I liked as much and could shoot as well. But at this point I'm happy with my full size.
