Does anyone find they are carrying a 43X or 48 more than a Glock 19 or 26? Just asking because I fund myself grabing my 43X when I leave the house more and more. Also it runs my cheapo wolf ammo I have.
Yep, I've been carrying my 48 pretty much exclusively since I got it- but I plan on switching back to my RMR 19 when it cools off again.
And that's the evidence of a thinking man who adapts to the seasons and their limitations or lack thereof. In a non-restrictive locale (no 10rd limitations or minimum barrel lengths), the G48 (and G43x) are warm weather choices based upon body shape, or clothing requirements so you don't stick out like a sore thumb. If everyone else is wearing T-shirts, shorts and sandals, a jacket is going to be not only uncomfortable, but visually conspicuous. But when it cools down and clothing increases, a slightly larger gun becomes preferable for recoil control, magazine capacity, etc. Tools in the toolbox v. a multi-tool that does most, but not as well as a "tool box".
