So I've been looking for a secondary pistol that can be my BUG as well as my EDC when I don't feel like lugging around an all steel fullsize 1911.
I looked at the LCP the Kimber Solo Carry (a display model at my LGS), the P-3AT, the Kahr line-up, the Diamondback DB380, the Bersa Thunder 380, the Sig P238...pretty much any pocket pistol I could get my hands on. The LCP felt nice, but I don't really want to stake my life on a .380.
Next I tried all the currently available 9mm pistols that fit my criteria of being able to be pocket carried; I'm a 21 year old college student, so my fashionable jeans have pockets that can easily swallow my dad's Bersa Thunder 380. So that being said, my definition of a pocket pistol is substantially different than most people's definition. Anyways, I tried the PF-9, the Walther PPS, and anything else that looked good, but each had something that I didn't like. I also looked at the J-frame revolvers, but wheel guns just aren't my thing yet.
Now, just as I was about to give up, an employee at the other LGS I go to suggested I take a look at the Glock 30 and Glock 30SF. They were awful feeling in my hand, though the 30SF almost fit the bill; and as I was begrudging the two Glocks something caught my eye: the Glock 36. It was at this point that I was assimilated into the Glock collective. I can't describe it, but it's the only other pistol that I have ever held that feels as natural in my hands as my 1911! It also fit easily into the front pocket of the jeans I was wearing, which just so happen to be the jeans with the shallowest pockets.
I'm going to be saving up for it over the next couple of months. How do you guys like the G36?
My only question is are there any floorplates that expand the capacity?
