And those bull dog things can't be nearly as quick to draw and ready a pistol from compare to a pocket or iwb.

My youngest daughter is a 100lb girly girl. Not a tough girl at all and has a tcp as one of her cc pistols. She enjoys it , easy for her to rack and shoot well. My wife has one too. Both have been very reliable .

HEY stan Buy a pocket holster. It keeps the pistol one a fix position !! Even a iwb like a dual purpose desantis pocket tuk can serve as a pocket or iwn adjustable holster.

Was this your issues with or the lady's also small micro pistols are not a great choice for a newbe shooter in general. Is she a shooter of lower skill levels? Was the pistol new or used? What is the letter in the serial number A, B, C or D. C and D are the later improved models. The 2 in our family are C's and I broke them in first. Shot 7 different brands or bullet types in them with zero issues in 400 rounds each. Because my hands don't fit real well I add a piece of old 1.75" inner tube to the grip. Makes for a tacky easy to hold grip.

Last you do realize any brand can have some problems too. Even what ever your favorite brand is. If the lady is the problem or your skill level maybe a larger easier to shoot pistol like bersa CC380 would be a better choice in general. Sized like a kahr cm series , 16oz , 8 rounds with a da/sa trigger.

hardluk1 - if the question is addressed to me...it is her gun. She began shooting and after about 4-5 shots it Failed To Load. We corrected the problem and shot several more rounds. It did it again. Cleared it and shot a few more rounds. It did it again...cleared and shot some more.

IMO - I don't know what caused the problem. It happened each time on racking to shoot after it had been laid down. It was not abused or thrown...just set down. When racked the round got stuck in the ejection space and would not fall out and would not enter the chamber. It was just stuck but not tight - it would rattle a little.

I do not know what brand of ammo she had but I can find out. I will contact my son and have him bring it by for review. I'm no gunsmith but mechanically inclined. I'd like to learn what happened just for my experience & knowledge.

I don't know about that. I have a Samsung Note and when it first came out there were no cases so I started carrying it in a 10 round shotgun shell belt case. I have never had a LEO say anything. YMMV. The doorway and bumping into people could certainly be an issue but then nearly any carry style could have the same issues, at least to my mind.

Perdonal experience can certainly vary. I spoke from my own. A lot depends on your dress habits and where you hang out most of your time. I tried it and didn't like it for the reasons above, but I guess someone else might see it differently.

wittmeba Third hand info sucks. When you get your hands on it. see if it has a C or D in the serial number . Those are the ones that tend to run very well but I have seen some new older models in stores to and they typicaly end up going back for some TLC. Ever one also makes a turd now and then so it could be one of those but so many tiems its a shooter related problem. . But it will be interesting how it works in your hands only. I am like you in that I can work on them. I have bought 3 handguns over a few years off pissed off owners at the range. 1 did have to go back. The other two only needed a new owner for them to work great. Smalls pistol simply give some people fits no matter how well it runs for others.
