Without a holster, its pretty difficult to hide the 24/7. I was in a wonderful part of town tonight and didn't want to leave the gun in the truck, but I ended up having to, because the pants I was wearing, the back pocket wasn't large enough for the 24/7. It would have fit most any Kel-Tec, or even possibly a Mil Pro. I know it would have fit a small revolver, which is why now I am leaning towards the 605 for my carry gun.Robby said:Think I will stick with my Taurus, and Rossi at those prices.
I considered getting a longer barreled 9 MM, but that defeats what I started with the PT111 for. Even the compact 24/7 was more than I wanted to try and hide.
The PF-9 is now the smallest and lightest 9mm ever made.SgtKnuckles said:The Kel- Tec P-11 is the smallest and lightest 9 mm ever made. The P-11 is especially suited for plainclothes police officers or as a secondary weapon for military personnel.
Well, I'd consider trying the P-11 if there was one available to shoot, but I'd never put my money in a gun that light sight unseen.SgtKnuckles said:Thanks to its locking dynamics and superior ergonometry, perceived recoil and practical accuracy are comparable to much larger guns.
Since my primary point in starting this thread was about having a very small gun but with some decent weight to it, I found this item interesting because of the 20 ounces. But every other site I found it on said it is 17 ounces.SgtKnuckles said:SKYY INDUSTRIES -- MODEL CPX-1, 9-MM, DAO, 2- 10 RD MAGS, WT-20 OZ
I had already read that excellent piece (even copied it onto my own computer as a reference) as well as others there when I started this thread.GerbilWarrior said:
NYPD got there before I did. For a real small steel gun in a service caliber I'd take a look at the MK series from Kahr. Yes, you'll pay for it but there are well made. But even the polymer framed guns don't kick much. There's a P9 around here and the recoil feels about like my XD9SC, even with Corbon 9mm's.NYPD in AZ said:
The weight thing is definitely an issue for me - THE issue of this thread. After years I've never learned to hold a feather weight gun down, especially one with a tiny handle. Yet I'm interested in a deep cover gun. Therefore I'm asking about a pocket sized gun with some heft to it.thunderjohn said:If the weight thing is such an issue, just go with the PT111. Hardly any bigger and a good gun for the money.
