Doesn’t the pinky extension make it harder to conceal?

I don't always carry, but when I do...
I prefer G19. Bit smaller, definitely lighter.
G43 is easy peasy but sacrifice is round count (and control   :oops:)

    drk spot on with body shape as pre covid, CC'ing a 19 was borderline for my skinny a$$.
4 months (10 lbs) later I can probably tuck a 1911 under the belly flap  :rofl: :rofl:

G26 with mag pinky extensions is G43 size but wider...Only has 10 rounds anyways. More than that banned. But nobody here does anything illegal

General Discussion / Re: Honolulu PD permit/reg. by appointment only
« Last post by 6716J on Today at 01:36:00 PM »
Sent mine....

Aloha Gov. Ige, Mayor Caldwell, Senators, Representatives, Legislators and Officials 

As we all know the COVID-19 pandemic has created numerous issues for all of us living and working in Hawaii. As such, the appointment based process put into place by the Honolulu Police Department, while I am sure well intentioned, has created a Constitutional problem for the citizens in the State, specifically on O’ahu. Currently the citizens of O’ahu are UNABLE to even apply to obtain a permit to acquire a firearm due to no available appointments for the next 3 months or farther based on the results on the HPD Firearms Dept webpage (http://www.honolulupd.org/information/index.php?page=gunmain).This is a deprivation of rights under the color of law. Based on this information, I am asking for the Governor and Mayor to order the Honolulu Police Department to immediately suspend the appointment based system and allow the Hawaii based Federal Firearms Licensees to perform the background checks using the ATF Form 4473 and/or the current HPD forms and contacting the appropriate Authority Having Jurisdiction. Numerous other states with waiting periods have proved that the background check system CAN and DOES work even with a waiting period. California, our closest neighbor in the 9th Circuit imposes a 10 day waiting period on all firearm purchases and all Private Party transfers must be done through a Federal Firearms Licensee. Hawaii FFLs can contact the HPD or other County Police departments or through the States Attorney Generals Office which performs background checks (https://ag.hawaii.gov/hcjdc/criminal-history-records-check/) to perform the background check as is required by State and Federal laws.Hawaii can perform this as well and better than other States, showing the other States we are more than capable and first in upholding the Constitutional Rights of our residents.

By moving the process out to the FFLs, this will free up officer time in the Firearms Permit Unit to address their workload and abilities. Also, in light of the Yukutake et. al. V. Conners suit being settled, this would be a huge positive movement in publicity for the State and HPD in regards to Civil Rights and the upholding of Constitutional Rights of both the State of Hawaii and the United States.

We, as residents of the State of Hawaii and respective Counties, know that you as our elected officials value the oath you have taken to uphold the Constitutional obligations as set forth when you took office. We know that if this was a problem with our abilities to vote, the problem would be addressed immediately. And regardless of views, we now have 100% mail-in voting in Hawaii. Should we not have the same and equal ability to exercise our right to bear arms as the right to vote?Mahalo for your kokua in addressing an issue which is directly affecting the Constitutional rights of the residents of Hawaii.

ʻAʻohe hana nui ke alu ‘ia (No task is too big when done together by all) 

Mahalo nui loa

@stangzilla
thanks for the links, research.  My ST from 5 yrs ago purchase does show some manufacturing differences compared to my Aero from same time period, Obummer/Hitlary panic buying years, so perhaps after 2015.  I liked the bullet pictogram markings from Spikes.

I have a couple spikes and a few Aero's. no problems with either.  1 of the spikes is the color filled calico jack with the fire select saying "parley, plunder, arrrr"  I thought that was pretty cool looking.  the other one is the regular spikes with the spider and I did my own color fill.
I might be looking for another lower, just to have something in surplus just in case.  I would get either spikes or Aero again

Firearms and Accessories / Re: glock 17 edc conceal carry
« Last post by Rocky on Today at 11:56:59 AM »
Body shape is big.  Just have to try and see for yourself.  Being more stocky, I thought maybe tall and thinner people would have an easier time concealing.  From the tall and skinny folks I've spoke to, seem like they have a difficult time because their body lines being straighter seems to have them printing more. 

I've tried many different.  OWB kydex (raven) at right side.  A few IWB on my right side and appendix.  A 17 wouldn't be my first choice to CCW, but since it was one of my first handguns, it was what I did a lot of trial and error with.
I don't always carry, but when I do...
I prefer G19. Bit smaller, definitely lighter.
G43 is easy peasy but sacrifice is round count (and control   :oops:)
