Unless I read the calender wrong, there will be a gun show at the Dallas Market Hall this weekend. I have a desire, nay a need, for a pocket pistol. I have enjoyed the responses to my blog post in that regard.
I also find myself in ownership of of Glock 19 that seems to be relegated to "why?" status. What I mean is I don't carry it, and truth be told it feels big in my hand. I carry a Glock 26, and shoot it well. I can't explain why but the 26 feels fine, the 19 feels like a brick. It's a dead solid reliable brick, but a brick none the less.
As I said, I need a pocket pistol. There have been a few times when the dress code (often enforced by my wife) has forced me to choose to go without a handgun. Dress casual dinner, with starched Wranglers and a nice button-down, doesn't leave a place for a concealed handgun. At least not a Glock 26 in an IWB holster. For those few times when I can't or don't wear a shirt untucked, or have a light jacket as cover, (and I promise you those times are very few) I need something I can slip into a pocket and be relatively unnoticed.
So, this weekend the need, mode, and the opportunity all exist at the same time. I think the G19 will become trade fodder. I still don't know which pistol I want. I will have to fondle and pocket some to see what works for me.
If any of you folks get out to Market Hall, I plan on being there Saturday. Look for me and say hi, I'll be the guy in jeans and a cammo hat.
