For sheer novelty's sake, here's one from our Brazilian friends at Taurus:

Yup, that's a curved gun for IWB. No, I will not attest to its ergos or functionality, but it's too damn weird to not include.

Best,

Meh,
It's a Taurus.

I recently picked up a Glock 42 and have enjoyed carrying it as a BUG on duty, and throwing it in my pocket. I was hesitant on going to the .380 also, but it was the next smallest option for me as a BUG, aside from my 26. I haven't had any issues with mine, I've just been trying to find a pocket holster for it.

I'm looking at this holster for the Glock 42:

I have the original XD40 and it's an outstanding gun. The subcompact series are great too, but they're no slimmer than my Glock 27.

FWIW, the XDS's (Single stack/slim) 9mm is only .92" wide. Pretty skinny by anybody's standards. Only comes in 9 and 45 if I recall correctly, though.

One of our range instructors made the comment that they were coming out with a 9mm model similar to the Glock 42. I like the G42 for going to the gym or whatever, but a 9mm version would be awesome.

I haven't seen any official release or anything. I'm assuming this came from him talking to our department's Glock contact.

Where it is wet, wet, and more wet
I would go for a the lightest weight and heaviest shooter. CCW weapons are not target pistols or fun things. A scandium .357 is too uncomfortable too shoot for fun, but very nasty on the receiving end. It is light weight and small, meaning a person will carry it over time. Bulky and heavy sucks over time. A Chihuahua with the bite of a rottie, is for every day carry. This is not a military thing, the odds are it will never be used. Having with you after ten years of carrying, is better than than a canon left at home.

Well, I decided on the Glock 42, and I am not disappointed. It actually feels like a "real" gun in your hand, unlike the other .380 and some 9mm I tried. They seem to be popular. They already sold five by the time I arrived. The guy in line before me bought one (he was a 23rd STS guy from Hurlburt Field, and might even be on here!). I couldn't beat the price either, $329 before taxes.

I've given up on little diddlybop snubby guns and have gone back to my 1st love. It ain't sexy, it ain't got lights and lasers all over it, but it's got a match grade barrel and I'm hitting paper plates the size of a man's face at 25 yards. I stick it in my belt, it doesn't print and when I pull it out you're lookin down the big tube. :D:thumbsup: Springfield Armory mil-spec 1911-A1. It chose me many years ago. It completes me. I am now complete. 8-)
