hey all, looking for a little direction. I live in Texas and it's hot as balls like 6 months out of the year. I have a beautiful custom CCO sized 1911 for when I'm out and about, but it's a bit too heavy for when I walk to dog or baby around the neighborhood. I currently carry an LCP, but I want to upgrade to 9mm. I have a lightweight snub 38 and may try that with a clip. I know there are tons of smaller carry guns, and I've tried a bunch of them. I haven't had great luck. Some background, I enjoy and compete with 1911s or M&Ps, and I hate Glocks (Don't point well for me). so what I've tried so far: Kahr PM9-reliability issues scared me off KelTec 9- frame broke before I even fired it Springfield XDs- had one pre recall in 45, I hated the recoil and then had to send it back anyway. had them keep it. Walther PPS Gen 1. I wanted it for a while but just didn't like the ergonomics ok, so what do I check out and try? I don't want to start wearing full on pants or a belt to just run around, but after some up close run ins with coyotes I want something a little more punchy.
