Sorry for the delay in my response; I've been making the transition from Minnesota to Arizona since about September 10th. Lots of things have changed and I DO appreciate the experience you folks bring to the table. First, I picked up my new/used G23.4 and G27.4 the day I landed back in AZ. Two days later I shot them both in an IDPA match with my CC ammo: Federal HST 180 grain HPs. I shot three stages with the 27 and the remaining three stages with the 23. I hadn't even shot a gun in about four months, so my expectations were realistic. As I think Deputydave pointed out, the recoil of the 27 was a wake-up call. I guess I was either naive 15 years ago with my first G27 (and first Glock), or I was a bit younger and stronger. No matter, I didn't do well with the 27 and there were a couple reactionary targets demanding very fast double taps and the 27 recoil was a beast! I tried the 9mm conversion barrel in the 27 and almost immediately had a major failure to extract with the OEM extractor. I had to take it home to get it unjammed. There went my dream of CC-ing it as a 26 without buying and installing a new extractor, ejector, etc. I sold the gun at a slight profit a week later and the conversion barrel is getting shipped to a new owner tomorrow. Meanwhile, I found a nice, used G26.4 here on GT and that gun should arrive at my FFL's tomorrow. I'm looking forward to shooting it and getting it into the IDPA game within the month. (Yesterday, I shot a BUG match with the Sig P365 and it simply rocked on, never missed a beat, although I had a couple brain farts and messed up my score.) By the end of tomorrow I should have the G23.4, a G26.4 (using a Galco Ultimate Second Amendment holster for AIWB), a Sig P365 and the Ruger LCPII. My CC ammo needs for all three calibers are satisfactory at the moment (Federal HST 180, 124 and 99 grain). The other day I dropped the Sig into my right front pocket in an Uncle Mike's soft nylon holster. The material of the shorts is a light weight small plaid pattern and the Sig rode quite well and didn't print that much. For comparison's sake, I downloaded it to 5+1 and it rode even better, without dragging too much on my leather 1-1/2" belt (the only belts I wear, brown or black, same maker). I figured, what the heck, that would give me one more round compared to a J-frame. I have to admit, the Sig in my pocket was pretty easy to carry and I'll have to think about the implications of selling the LCP and relying on the Sig for the rare times I pocket carry. It would make life much more simple if I only had to keep track of ammo, holsters, and mags for two Glocks and a Sig. However, I also got a new ankle holster for the LCP and I might be doing a lot of driving over the winter, so that appeals to me. Unfortunately, I sold the G42. I'm sure it is a fine pistol, but I found my right thumb riding up and messing with the slide catch lever (just like it did on my past G43s). I also didn't get much of a chance to shoot it due to extenuating circumstances. I've managed to lose about 15 pounds over the summer. I'm now 6'0" and weigh 198 pounds. Back in AZ I'm also back into my exercise routine: long walks before the sun comes up to scorch me, bar work at the gym (pullups, chinups, dips, etc.) and interval training in the pool. So, I anticipate losing more weight in the near future, which makes AIWB a LOT more comfy to me. Actually, I'm feeling stronger and in better shape, a couple months from the age of 70, than I felt 20 years ago. That was about the time I had my first knee scoped and I had to give up my summers of backpacking and mountain climbing (nothing technical, just scrambling up the scree and bushwhacking in the Absaroka-Beartooth mountains near Red Lodge, MT). I'm still on the 'journey' and will keep you informed. Right now, my personal stash is healthy, so I can envision lots of things, but I'm sticking with the status quo for the time being, AND I realize I can always forget pocket carry and go back to my Smart Carry with the Sig. Yes, I understand the draw stroke challenges with the Smart Carry, but this method would primarily be to have something during the times when I'm playing with the grandsons ... who no longer expect me and my wife to roll around on the floor playing with them. (Thank God!) Thanks to you all. Stay safe and keep your powder dry.
