Ya know, I don't often quote Nutnfancy, as I'm not a huge fan of his stuff, but something he said in a video about guys who debate ammo capacity really hit home with me, because I used to be one of those guys like you, who would tell everyone that if you can't do it in 6 you shouldn't be carrying a gun anyway right? I came from a revolver background so having anything more than 6 and sometimes 7 rounds seems excessive to me. But, he said something to the extent that, you're choosing to carry a gun AT ALL, and the likelihood of you ever needing to fire it at someone is hopefully extremely low in the first place, so why would you argue against a guy for wanting to carry a gun with more capacity? And I think he's right. The number of people who never need guns far exceeds the number who ever will, so the odds are vastly in your favor that you'll never even need 6 let alone 15.The difference in weight between a 19 and a 43 is only 8oz. That's really not a big deal and in exchange you more than double your capacity. But anyway, I think the point of this thread is that if you can manage to carry it, why shouldn't you? I 100% regret buying my 43. Don't get me wrong, it's an excellent little gun and my wife has basically adopted it and we call it her gun now, which is great. But, for me I should have just gone with the 19. I carry a Shield, and I reeeeally love that gun, but I'm still looking at a 19. It's just the perfect mix of size and capacity, not huge but big enough to be a real gun, and it carries a good amount of ammo. Lately I'm just finding less and less reasons to not carry one.
