    Default Re: ISO a new pocket carry

    I have run through a bunch of options, I am really mostly Glock, but not for this type of carry anymore. I have done the ENTIRE subcompact pistol route, starting with a Springfield XD-S in 9 and 45. did not care for the aggressive grip texture, so I also had Sig 238 and 938's too. Love the shooting accuracy from the Sig's, but I was not a fan of cocked and locked S/A in my pocket, so the 938 eventually ended up in a SuperTuck IWB at 5o'clock. And that was fine, but I figured if I was carrying IWB like that then my G23 was really not worse and i gained rounds and stopping power. '

    As soon as Glock came out with the G42, I had one, then the G43. Again, not bad, but 6 or 7 rounds only. When Sig brought out the P365, with 12-rounds in a size comparable to the G43, I thought it was the answer for pocket carry for me. But I don't, for some unknown reason, shoot the P365 very well. I then got a G43X, (and a G48) shoot them both well, but they are too big for pocket carry for me. My buddies carry the 43x and 48 in appendix, and they are quite happy, but appendix is not for me, its not comfortable.

    I won a Springfield Hellcat at a gun bash, and to me, it is perfect. It does pocket carry in my front right, with 15 rounds in a DeSantis sticky pocket holster. I have been carrying it everywhere, jeans or khaki's, and it fits and draws great for me.

    This is just my experience with each of these guns and my stream of consciousness of how the gun and I dress around each other. I am fine with the Hellcat trigger, its your basic striker, nothing great, but nothing bad (I have a G43x MOS that is CLEARLY the worst striker fired trigger ever put in a gun!!)

    Good luck in your search.

    So funny - I have the same setup. Alabama Holster for the Hellcat and I switch it up with an LCP II in another Alabama Holster if I need something even smaller.

    Thanks to all. I've narrowed down my choices. For anyone else doing this research, here is a comparison of the dimensions of my top 5:

    Are you going to try them out before buying? I shot a Bodyguard once, and it hurt like a bitch. My P380 (same as the CW380) has significantly less felt recoil.
