    If you think the full size is good, you really need to get yourself an X-Change kit and give the compact a whirl. It is exactly the same size a G19. It is IMHO a superior firearm to the G19 in many ways. The only thing I wanted to upgrade on the Compact was the sights, as mine came with contrast sights, which are excellent, but I refer night sights and decided to go with the Sig X-Ray3 sights, as they are very similar to Trijicon HD's. They will be getting installed later today, hopefully. As you can see in this picture the tritium is very bright and even shows up in a well lit room.

    After nearly 5 weeks, I finally received my G-Code J frame kydex holster for my 640 Pro. I have an Incog Eclipse for my G27 and it's my favorite AIWB holster, unfortunately G-code doesn't make an Incog for revolvers. Took about 5 minutes to mount the belt clip and I wore it the rest of the day.
    It's moving to the top of my rotation.

    I'm curious, in what ways is it superior?
    I'm not a Glock fan boy or anything (though I do love my 19)... just honestly wondering if maybe I ought to look into purchasing one for myself lol

    Out of the box, better trigger, better sights, fully ambidextrous (important for us lefties), better ergonomics, tradition rifling allows shooting lead non jacketed bullets, and more natural pointability, front slide serration for press checks (if you do those), and the big one modularity, allowing different size grips for different shooters hands and easy quick caliber changes.
    Note on caliber changes, yes for many striker fired guns you can purchase a conversion barrel from 40S&W or 357Sig to 9mm but this usually creates reliability issues as the slide is weighted and recoil spring is calibrated for 40S&W/357Sig. P320 caliber conversions are done buy exchanging the entire slide, with the barrel and recoil spring and guide rod. So if you first own a 9mm you can convert up to 357Sig or 40S&W, which is not possible with other handguns.

    A Glock gen4 comes with back straps...
    I have to say the ergos of a Glock are perfect for my hand size... and I will never do caliber conversions... I'd rather just buy another gun...
    I have an FNS9 that has front serrations and is full ambi and I love it. That alone was something that almost turned me away from Glock completely. I only ended up buying one because I felt like I had to put it through its paces for myself to see what the hype is about. I only own the 1 G19 and I do shoot it well but it's far from what the fan boys say it is...
    You have certainly gotten me, at the very least interested. I will have to go play with one in the store next time I'm there.
    May as well post a photo of my 19, and FNS.
    I carry them both quite a bit... mostly the Glock though if I'm being honest just because I like having the Surefire XC1 on it (doesn't fit the FNS) both have Trijicon HDs.

    Just picked up a Beretta Nano to accompany the LCR in the CCW rotation. I haven't shot it yet, so I hope all goes well!

    Just bought this Lc9s for when I don't wear enough to hide my .357 wheelgun. It is a very good shooting pistol and it fairly accurate for a subcompact pistol. It hides very well even under a loose T-shirt.
