    It definitely does.. I can tell you that off the bat. Practicing safely I can draw exactly as I would want to should the situation call for it again using the pinky extension. Here is the deal though, while both magazines my draw is equally the same as I use my middle and ring finger for the grab/pull primarily, it's the target acquisition quickness (with my head thinking something is out of balance) that the difference becomes apparent. I need to feel more comfortable without the extension as I've never had that issue, ever, with any pistol I've owned. So that whole feeling is completely new to me. I can pull it about the exact same speed but I find myself "feeling goofy" for a moment or two with the non-pinky extension magazine, versus never with it.. It's just a momentary feeling of something isn't right here and second guessing my draw/grip, when most of the time it's just fine, but in my head it's saying its not or something might not be- which is not very optimal to have going through my head in the time of need or extreme stress. The few times I've had to draw I was backing up pretty quickly, so I could see myself over-thinking that draw and dropping the damn thing if I don't get a lot more fluent with this smaller magazine.

    I suppose I'll be wearing the pinky extension until I feel as comfortable without it as I do with. Finally spring / summer is here and I can head out to the property with plenty of space & giant dirt stops to practice the full motion of draw to double tapping.

    I still dream of the day that i get a commander size 1911 GSR from SIG in .40
    I bought an S&W 640-3 357mag, only because it's all stainless steel. I'll probably only shoot .38 +P's in it.

    Glock 26 with extra mag IWB in a Galco Summer Comfort or an Old Faithful hybrid tuckable or a Remora. Sometimes a S&W 649 .38 Special snubby in a Remora. If I'm around water I will wear the Glock in a Galco Matrix so getting wet won't damage my rig.

    My SIG SP2022 .40 is currently my primary CC sidearm but that may change since I bought a SIG P250SC in .40 this morning. When in revolver CC mode it's my SP101, .357 and I do have an OC holster for my GP100 .357 but I have only OC'd around the yard such as last week when I mowed my lawn for the first time this year (never know what might be lurking in my urban lawn :)
    Four Rugers, three SIG Sauers; my SP101 3-1/16" .357 is shown in my avatar. I like reliability.

    BigO,
    that's what I originally thought, too. Just works for me.

    Mine has changed...sort of. I'm back to my trusty Glock 26 which I've had for nearly 12 yrs. BUG is usually my S&W 442 (Factory nickel plated pre-lock model) that I've carried as a BUG for the last 18 yrs or so. If I'm going somewhere local, like a short trip to the "stop & rob" etc, then it's my Kel-Tec P32. Depending on the needs of my work, I carry a Taurus PT709 SLIM (Yes, it's reliable & even shoots WWB ammo).

    As to holsters, the Taurus is in a Desantis pocket holster (Which the Glock 26 can fit in, too) or a Hume JTSlide. The 26 has been riding in an OWB leather holster made for me by Doug (Of Shoemaker & Sons Leather) or in an UBG IWB holster (The one named after me )
    The 442 used to ride only in a Renegade ankle holster, but nowadays, it's in a K.L. Null City Slicker shoulder holster or a Hume JTSlide. The P32 only rides in a leather pocket holster. I have no idea the maker, just that it has a snap on/off leather flap.

    BTW, on the JTSlide holsters that I have, I've cut out the leather in front of the rear loop, so that my belt goes through both. It tucks the butt of the gun in tighter & rides better, IMHO.

    I just got a Glock 26, so it will be my EDC. I had a Ruger LCR .357 but didn't like the recoil and I wasn't used to shooting a snubby. The Bersa Thunder .380 is fun, but with the 9 round magazine, a little large to pocket carry.
