Really not trying to beat a dead horse on this, I have read many threads all over the net on the subject and may have decided what my next purchase will be. However before I pull the trigger ;) on my next purchase I would like your opinion on my decision.
So I am currently in the market for a single stack 9 that can fit in a front pocket of a pair of relaxed fit jeans or cargo pants.
I currently have several firearms and out of all of them I find I carry my P238 more then anything else simply because I can throw it in my pocket in the Desantis holster. I really enjoy the P238 as it shoots very well and feels good in my hand as well as in my pocket. However with that said I do have a few concerns with it being the only firearm I have on me (i know any gun better then no gun) and it often ends up that way.
First IMHO I feel the 380 is a little light, again I know, better than nothing but a few other issues that bother me with it. Being left handed I find it difficult to be quick with the safety on it, making carrying in condition 1 some what of an issue. I have with some practice gotten decent on racking the slide using my belt (one hand) but dont really want to have to go that route if the s**t ever hits the fan.
So with that said I have decided I need a pocket 9 :) but I am a little picky when it comes to my carry weapons. One thing that makes my decision some what hard is, I am not a fan of plastic guns. I am not totally against them, in fact I own 3 or 4 of them but for every day carry I prefer me some metal ;) and don't have a issue with a gun that is a little heavier.
I am currently thinking if picking up a Kahr MK9 (find the size of these perfect) however if I am going to dump $700 into a pocket gun I want to make sure I am not over looking anything.
