Ok - I know many folks have to work within limitations due to way of life, work etc.
But ..... if you have a good choice of options for concealment, due to lifestyle - is there any reason to go smaller and lighter?
IMO - no there isn't. I am lucky and can go large and heavy and my take on that is capacity, accuracy and controllability - the last two being inter-related.
Comfort I guess could be another factor but for me the size of the SIG 226 ST is ameliorated by the good rig - a K&D Eagle Defender. It holds tight in and is very good at ''absorbing'' the fully loaded SIG.
Does anyone feel that smaller is better, if in fact they can manage larger (platform)?
