Yeah
OWB is probably more practical overall
Wear it at the range and practice drawing ...
Wear at some national forest while camping
Or if there is a WW3 or zombie apocalypse, then forget concealed carry
It's every man for himself

You can do the same thing with IWB holsters. It’s all about how you train. Holsters are the one thing us gun guys spend a lot of money on. It takes a lot of trial and error to find things that work........and that’s for each firearm you carry.

In other news, I finally got my Sig P365 grip module back from Boresight. It now has a texture and grip surface similar to that of an M&P 2.0. They did a wonderful job; even added texture under the trigger guard and matched my two 12 round mags and my 15 round mag.

...and also did a size comparison with the 15 round in my Sig vs. my Shield 2.0 with the 8 round mag (...9 rounds with Magguts).

Was forced to get a new duty pistol to replace my Gen4 Glock 17 MOS w/ RMR, so I opted to get the new Glock 45 MOS and throw a comp on it knowing that it would fit in a Glock 34/35 holster.

Spec sheet:

Glock 45 MOS
Aimpoint ACRO P-1
SureFire X300 Ultra-B
TangoDown ACRO MOS adapter plate
Trijicon suppressor night sights
Agency Arms mid line stainless threaded barrel
Agency Arms Gen5 single port comp
Glock OEM extended slide stop lever
SLR Rifleworks Gen5 magwell

Impressions so far on that G45? It seems to be getting awesome reviews. I've been wanting to pick up a poly frame 9mm for a long time, and this one seems to be pushing me closer to the decision.

G45 is the smoothest shooting Glock I’ve ever shot, and I’ve been shooting Glocks for 23 years. The midsize slide is lighter, and combined with the full size grip, it recoils less than any other Glock. Normally, the shorter slides cause more muzzle flip, but the full grip actually causes the exact opposite to occur and the guns shoots extremely flat. I put an Agency Arms single port comp on the gun, and now it has virtually no felt recoil. Before that in stock configuration, it was still the best Glock.

If you have Facebook, I have a slow-motion shooting video of the G45 (with Agency comp) I posted to our training website for Learning Firearms.

I think I may spring for a STI Staccato P-Duo or STI Staccato-C. I had the opportunity to shoot the P-Duo at our department range Wednesday and I left really impressed by how well the gun performed. We are doing another group buy on the STI line, so I’ll save 20% on the model of my choosing.

I was on the fence about the Staccatos due to past experience with STIs having spotty reliability. Got to talking to some guys in the know, and learned that STI has new management at the helm and they’ve refocused dramatically. Now they’re heavily pushing towards reliability and durability, with the Stoccato being directly aimed at the LE duty market. I have a buddy with the Stoccato-P Duo and he loves it. He’s pounded the piss out of it and it sounds like the thing is still chugging away. If I were to run a 1911 for duty, it would come down to that or the Wilson EDC-X9L. The benefit to the STI is that it costs $1k less.

It’s good to know that your partner’s STI is running well. The guys on my dept who run the Staccato’s love them.
