    In the next few weeks here in NC people will go from shorts & t-shirts to jeans & a jacket or sweatshirt. I carry a 9mm (glock 26) all summer, but this time of year I switch to a glock 23. I can carry either very comfortably, but the 26 carries better. My question is which do you prefer when shooting through heavier winter clothing 9 or 40 ?

    I'm partial to the larger bore pistols in winter. Any hollow point can plug and fail to expand when it packs with certain types of inert substances. If it's going to turn into ball, I want it to turn into BIG ball.

    best,
