Would like some opinions...
Bear with me as I'm throwing a few thoughts together to ask a single question. Hopefully this makes sense.
Thought #1: I've mentioned in a couple other threads that I'm gearing up and trying to prepare for if/when CC is legalized in Illinois. I've been doing a lot of research into what pistol I would want to carry when that day comes. I've generally been looking at subcompact firearms because I'm a small guy and just don't feel like I could easily conceal a compact size firearm or larger. However, I have wanted a Glock 19 for a long time and really don't want to rule it out.
Thought #2: I own a Ruger P95 that I use for HD, but keep it in a GunVault at all times since we have an almost 3 year old running around the house. However, I have recently felt very strongly that I need to have a gun more readily available by carrying one on me inside my home due to home invasions and other unforeseen ugly situations. Because of this I had thought about getting a cheapo holster, likely OWB, for the Ruger for that purpose alone.
Thought #3: But, then I got to thinking, the Ruger is about the same size or slightly larger than some of the compact pistols I would consider for CC if I could indeed conceal them. If I could conceal that thing I should fairly easily be able to conceal just about any other compact pistol, namely the G19.
So, here's the question: Would it make sense for me to throw money at a decent IWB holster for my Ruger and try out concealing it while simply being inside my home? I could have my wife try to keep an eye on it and have her let me know when I'm printing and work on ways to minimize it. I was even thinking about a Remora for it since they are pretty inexpensive, have had rave reviews and would be the same size holster for the G19 and a couple other compacts that interest me. Please let me know what you think. Is this a solid plan or not really practical?
