I find my J-Frame more comfortable in my right front pocket than my G43. Wouldn't think that it would be so.
I used to appendix carry IWB with an Uncle Mike's neoprene(?) any one 3 Glock subcompacts until my belly got in the way. Now I use Nemesis for pocket carrying either a P3AT or a S&W638, which work fine.The cheap nylon pocket holsters from Uncle Mike's and Blackhawk are the best I've found for small snubbies. Kydex is uncomfortable and most others like Mika and DeSantis add too much bulk. Sometimes simple and cheap is best. At least that is my experience. YMMV.
I agree. I carry speed strips or a spare magazine. But, I’ve always believed, if you have to reload in a self defense shooting, whether from running out of ammo or malfunction, by the time you get the reload done with either semi auto or revolver, you’ve either lost the fight or the bad guy has turned tail and run.I don't have a G43 so I can't comment on that particular gun. I do own a P365 and a Hellcat. Both are great pistols but they just don't pocket carry as well as a J Frame. They are heavier, they print more, and they are harder to draw smoothly. I will concede that they are easier to shoot accurately at longer distances, but I just don't see needing to hit a small target at 40 yards. Even though I carry a speed strip I don't see a reload as a possibility either. As I said before, my carry gun is my get out of trouble tool. I'll let LE go after the bad guys.
Had to go into the city this morning. Carried my 3” K frame with a speedloader and a speed strip as reloads.
Felt pretty well protected with that setup.
How do you get the trigger and hammer to look like that?But what if you were unexpectedly surrounded by 300 Antifa Zombies, all carrying axes, that they'd lit on fire? Huh? Huh? What about that "Mr. Well Protected "? THEN you're a dead man. And that'll teach you.
...meanwhile...back in the reality based community...I frequently carry this one below. It's saved my life back in my LEO days and, if I do say so myself, I'm no slouch with it. It rides in a well worn Desantis OWB pancake.
YMMV. Don't care if it does.
