          If you actually knew what you were talking about, you'd know how heavy the trigger pull is on DAO revolvers and how unlikely itis that you'd have an AD/ND while carrying. But again. You dont know what youre talking about. Probably a noguns or newguns, talking when you should lurk

      J-frames have pretty damn good triggers, you feel for the click and it's not a problem at all, really

        And that's how we know you've never actually owned one. My air weight J trigger measures just a bit over 10 lbs. Its just a few ounces shy of double that of my glock. Doesnt matter how strong you are, that's significantly more force input to the gun that can shift the point of aim. Same reason so many ELR shooters go to ultra light triggers regardless their size / strength.

          Are you feeling for the "click" it makes before it fires? Yeah, no shit it's heavier, but it's not as squishy as the trigger on most striker-fired handguns.

            Two things:

            1- youre making an assumption that the semi pistol its compared to has to be a squishy factory trigger glock. That wasn't stated anywhere as a requirement for the comparison and there plenty of pistols out there with equal or better trigger breaks than a J without being 10+ lbs.

            2- in a real defensive situation, youre not going to remember a damn thing about the trigger feel. Once you've made the decision to pull it + use it, you're going to be like everyone else and just mash the trigger (with double the force) until the threat is stopped. Youre not going to carefully + slowly pull through each shot to feel the break in a life or death situation. You really should sign up for a defensive pistol class to try this out in the real world.

          You're probably gripping it wrong, web of the thumb goes where the hammer would come down (the main advantage of centennial/hammerless) and the pinky wraps the butt of the gun. If you're still having problems with standard pressure .38 special with this grip, it's a problem that most likely needs to be solved in the gym.

              I own both a p365 and an airweight snub. If the recoil is too much on the latter, it's probably an operator issue. Stop trying to buy skill.

                too late, i already did. putting a red dot on a handgun immediately makes it ten times easier to use. if i can be immediately 'good' at something because i spent a little bit of money, why the fuck should i practice a shit ton on an inferior platform so i can be 'slightly gooder'?

                i can reliably hit targets at pretty much any distance inside of 75m in rapid succession with good accuracy. you cannot do that with your snub, assuming you even own one.

                why NOT train to shoot at long distances? its stupid to put artificial limits on what you expect to see irl when there is solid proof of the extreme situations happening. this is like shitting on people for doing anything other than CQB shooting.

                except it's not trying to shit on anyone, you train for your personal risk assessment. even having to use your CCW ever is a huge "if" in the first place. you add up all these "ifs" and yeah, sure, it doesn't make any sense to carry anything other than a red dot sighted 15+1 semi-auto with an extra mag and a tourniquet and a flashlight and etc.

                I have nothing against semi-autos, hell I mentioned that I bought a p365 because it's "better" than the j-frame in pretty much every way, but there's one way in which it's not - it's less comfortable, and doesn't conform to my body as well. I'd rather have a j frame on me than a semi auto sitting in my drawer

                the hammerless design allows it to sit the in natural "v" shape where my leg meets my abdomen, allowing for completely unrestricted freedom of movement without poking me in the leg or anything. with the semi-auto, the slide pokes out when I try to lodge the pistol there, not even counting that it weighs a decent chunk more

                because revolver users on PrepHole have a permanent chip on their shoulder and ALWAYS attack semi-autos in the first few sentences of their thread. then when you call them out they fall back on 'wow how come ur so aggressive stop being a tryhard!'.

        Defender is shorter than the Officer (3.5 vs 3).

        The real smallest .45 1911 is the Detonics Combat master. Short 6 round magazine, the first 3 inch barrel, the most tacticool pistol of the 70s.

    If you actually work out and develop a good physique, you should have a V slot starting from your pubic bone extending right by your femoral and end ling with your quads as they protrude from your pelvis/femur. This area can fit a full size handgun with easy. One summer i wore cut off denims exclusively and also carried a sp01 appendix with minimal printing.

    It certainly is viable. Plenty of people carry just 1, so carrying a backup / spare is obviously better than that.

    With the comparison to a standard pistol though, I still think its a significant compromise: much worse trigger, much worse sights, no option for an optic, half the sight radius, still has less capacity, requires a 'reload' halfway through (ie drop one, pull and correctly grip the other), and has a compromised grip position. I don't buy the recoil concern others mentioned - theres pretty light 38 loads available that would be comparable to hotter pistol loads, especially in a more compact pistol (like a 10mm, etc).
