I used to carry my 26 with a 19 mag, but then I embraced the pew pew life and started carrying a G19 with a 20 round mag and X300.

I run a +2 plate on my 43, and with a couple t-shirt/shorts combos I need to run the OEM mag. my compact I just run standard mag in it and a full size spare.

if I ever get called on a flag I'll say it's my colostomy bag. hasn't happened yet.

I mean, if I carried. guns are scary and bad.
Now you sound like me. Did gavin bury your pistol too?

It's cool, if you want your excavation area defined by territorial waters. TFG doesn't like challenges, so I buried his pistol in his yard.

the river's like a mile away, and off my land. but... ok.

you still have to find my place. then my weapons. and as a sporting man, I'd assume you'd stay on my property. otherwise, that's just rude. and my neighbors may take a dim view of you digging on their land too.

they may not match for skill, but I'd pay fair odds on tenacity.

Territorial waters are salty. TFG needs to school you up on the rules of this game.

One of the reasons I like my 26 is because of the options you can run, with or without the extensions or sleeves but no matter what my spare mags are always from my G17.

BTW I wouldn't suggest the 2 round extensions as it make the frame about the same size as the G19 so you might as well just carry that.

Bro.

Just buy the new-new and get on with it... you're in a safe space here.

Just make sure you get it refinished in Flat Dark Earth.

... I just called the guy i got my 19X from and requested another one.

This one with the threaded barrel. It should be there when I return in Dec.

Yep. That just happened. Thanks Leopardprey. All your fault.

A guy showed up at the range today with a 19X and let me put a mag through it. I need one. The trigger is pretty much perfect.

Around 12,000 factory 124grn ball and HP's have been spent thru my 19X. Myself and more than a dozen other industry shooters have wrung it out thoroughly with various holster systems. It was disassembled at around 6,000rds by our in-house armorer to satisfy his curiosity about the barrel as compared to the ones we have in our 17's & 19's. Otherwise there has been no cleaning or maintenance done or required. It will be cleaned thoroughly this week after my training cycle is complete and I've notified the person that provided it to me [brand-new] I will be keeping it.

Everyone that has handled or fired it, has approved of it greatly, it's an impressive weapon.

Not particularly excited about either. I can't even remember which is which. I do have a male relative who is a borderline dwarf and can't hold a full sized pistol. The G48 might be good for someone like him. As for the G43X I have extended base pads that do the same thing. I also have zero interest in a two tone gun, I think it looks stupid. A meaningless quibble but Glocks are black, damn it!
