    This week I traded mu LCP for a LCR.. LCP had a CT laserguard my LCR has a CT lasergrip on the way.. Since I got my CW9 I have not carried the LCP. I also found it not real easy to access in a pocket and the CT was hard to activate w/o really gripping the gun hard...The CW9 does both of these better and is 9mm as compared to 380..Now the LCR, which has not been shot yet, easy to access out of pocket and is 357 mag..The grip is much better than the LCP and has a really nice trigger.. Also the LCR has workable sights and I can add a night sight to the front..Mainly for finding in the dark..I think I might also like to carry this AIWB... I have 2 speed loaders and order 2 Bianchi speed strips..Holster suggestions for pocket and AIWB and any input would be appreciated!

    Good choice, I much prefer my LCR to my LCP. I use a TUFF pocket holster and a Comp Tac 2 o'clock for AIWB.

    Each one has its place. Different tools for different jobs. I personally love my LCP just for the fact that I can have it in my pocket (with a holster) and not even notice it. That can be done with other guns, but not usually when you are wearing sweat pants around the house. Plus it has allowed me to carry a lot of times that I otherwise would not have if I hadn't had it as a option. Am I going to ditch my other calibers? No, of course not. But I feel happy to be carrying the LCP instead of wishing I had a gun with me.
    YMMV
