    Gone and not missed...

    I was real hard up for cash a little while back and chose to sell my Ruger LCP to make ends meet. This forced me to carry my G26 all the time instead of just when it was convenient to do so. After a few weeks of carrying a "real gun" all the time, I cant even bring myself to concider buying another pocket pistol.

    Another convert... mouseguns are out for me! I am even thinking of trading my 9mm G26 for a .40 G23!

    Funny... I've had the opposite experience. Carried a G27 IWB then started carrying an LCP + Crimson Trace in a pocket holster. I still have the G27 (carried it on the town yesterday) but I really notice the huge weight difference between the two.

    Different guns for different occasions.

    I always regret getting rid of guns. However, I set out to get either a G19 or 26, but ended up with a G23.

    I loved that pistol, until it got stolen; by my wife

    +1 here as well.

    There are times for me when a commander sized 1911 or "chopped" Hi-Power simply won't cut it. Usually we're talking very warm weather. Still....

    Since jumping on a super deal for a NIB P238 Nitron (mine is a May '10 build date and has proved reliable with over 300 rounds through the pipe), I've found it to have become my "always with me" piece. It serves not only as a hot weather carry but also as a viable BUG. No real fan of the 380, but pocket carry of a super compact lightweight pistol makes all the difference. Especially one with a 1911-like control set for this 1911 guy:)

    I've got a G26 as well as an LCP, also have an LCR. Of the three the 26 spends more time at home than any of them. I think anyone on the "open" end of the LCP would have reason to see it as "real".

    I got rid of my LCP, even with quality HP ammo, it didn't seem like it would do the job. Now I switch back and forth from carrying a 442 snub to a Glock 19.

    The LCP was super light, tiny enough to conceal anywhere, and really well made. I think I just found it a little boring.

    Real tiny!

    Days like today...and yesterday and the day before can make it a little more uncomfortable to hide the larger pistol but it isn't too hard or uncomfortable. A good selection of tasteful and comfortable Hawaiian & camp shirts helps. The mousegun has it's place in the front pocket of my cargo shorts.

    I wouldn't get rid of the mouse gun, they have their place.
    My EDC is a Glock-36, but once in a while I take the Glock-26 instead. It's just a little bit easier to conceal...both are great firearms.
    I still have my KelTec .32 and .380 for BUGs.

    I keep my mouse guns around for those times when I really can't carry anything else (read as: at the beach in shorts and no shirt). While cleaning my guns after a range session one morning I had a .45 & .380 cartridge side by side and just kept looking at them going oh boy, do I really carry that little .380...

    I keep the .32 in my front pocket away from the big guys, it might develop an inferiority complex.

    You just had the wrong pocket gun...I have a S&W M&P 340. It is defintely not underpowered. And for what it is worth do not trade your 26 for a 23. Just save and buy the 23. Youll understand when you have done why not.

    I have to agree with retsupt. Everyone needs a pocket gun for those times that nothing else will work. Personally, I prefer to carry the largest gun I can depending on dress, but, my LCP has its place.

    If I were to "upgrade" from a G26, I'd opt for the .357 SIG over the .40 S&W.

    Well, your mistake was going with a Mouse gun, instead of a Hampster gun.

    Hampster guns are far more effective than Mouse guns, and are only slightly larger and heavier. But you can get them chambered in much more powerful cartridges.

    The leading Hampster handguns on the market are the Kahr P series pistols, and the Walther PPS. Both are quite compact and light in weight, and are even available in .40 S&W, if that is the round you want to go with.

    Here is a Kahr PM pistol and a Walther PPS to its right for comparision:



    Both of these are much easier to carry concealed than the Glock 26 or 27.

    DON'T SELL YOUR GLOCK!!!!

    How many posts have we all read were someone sold their Glock just to regret it later? Save and buy the other Glock you want. Then at night they can sit together in the safe and tell stories :-)
