Does size matter that much?

Not that, I'm talking concealed carry. I just read a three page debate on whether one 9MM single stack is, in truth, smaller than another single stack 9MM. They were getting a micrometer to measure the width. You have got to be kidding me. This "My carry gun is smaller than your carry gun" is being taken to the point of absurdity. If it's a decent caliber, is reliable and accurate, why would you care if another gun may be smaller than yours?

If you can conceal it, who cares?

wow, terry actually came up with a pertinent gun post. He much have seen the idea on another forum. for a pants pocket gun, a millimeter thicker means more than a millimeter wider bullet. :-) if, that is, ballistics remain pretty much the same, as well as expansion, etc.

Actually, I did get the idea somewhere else. Two guy's arguing about a P365, G42 and the new Hellcat. So caught up in height and width they got a micrometer out to make their point. Are they accurate? Reliable? No matter they have to be the smallest. This incredible shrinking 9MM is big thing now. My P-01 and CZ 97b are real Dinosaurs now. Thanks for the "Like" Melvin.

Most women agree that size matters, from my prospective caliber and ergonomics play a big factor.

size , thickness and weight only mean something for a pants pocket holster , or a woman's flash bang holster. Wife wants one for when she jogs. She runs around a half mile square, 2 miles, for garand and similar math-challenged people, while I walk across, catty-corner to keep her in sight. the P32 keltec stays in her hand, in her jacket pocket, any time that its cool enough to justify a jacket or sweater. I showed her how to chuck up each rd in a drill, held in the vise and reduce the OD of the semirim by .040", and bevel it, so as not to get mis-feeds when using jhp's, The 1200 fps handloaded Silvertp 60 gr load has 200 ft lbs and she can get 4-5 rds on the chest at 6 ft in 1 second (first shot to last) That makes enough noise for me to notice and i can be there in 15 seconds or less. I figure that hearing me roar, seeing me coming and 2-3 of such hits on his chest should suffice to change his mind about messing with her. Looking at the flashbang as a chest rig for sleeping during shtf, keeping the Sig right on the chest, ready to be grabbed when horizontal in the sleeping gear.

Hearing you "Roar" and seeing this old drug rattled fool attempting to actually run will have the attacker in such hysterics he won't need to be shot. He'll be on the ground laughing.

you've taken more drugs than me, fools, cause you drink coffee.and I run 20 minutes on the treadmill 2x a week. My knees can't take much running on hard surfaces, cause I"ve thrown too many thousands of hard kicks into the air over the years.

The type of drugs and how they are used matter.

I guess 40mins of cardio a week is about right for someone his age?
I'm a few days shy of 54 and manage 2-3hrs a week of fast walking. Sometimes with a ruck and or a kettle bell.

55 and I still train hard.
Concealed carry for me goes up and down from the 9x18 stuff I have ( P64, Makarovs) up through the service sized guns( Sig's,Ruger,S&W).
I'm not a big guy,but I manage to hide single and double stack stuff. Generally,off work I go with a Makarov. Some days the SigPro(2022) if I am not working a uniform job.
Weather, clothing; activities all play a part.

when there's no real consequences for having the gun noticed, you can "ccw" a softball. Some people can' t have it be seen, ever. BIG difference.
