    I thought so. Love those, just ordered another one. Actually like them better than the Mitch Rosens I have.
    Thanks

    I bought quite a few of them years ago when they had some pretty nice sales going on. Like their designs, their holsters, and their prices!

    I did not know about the shield arms 15 round mag. Thanks for the info I’ll look into it.

    If shield arms is out of stock, do a google search to find other vendors. I actually ordered my first two from the glock store because Shield Arms wasn't showing them in stock, but the glock store had them.

    There is a reason the 19 is Glock's most popular product. Another option if you are "handy" is to get a 17 and shorten the frame to make it more compact and use Glock 19 mags. I have one adapted this way and its pretty amazing.

    42FE2AE2-DB4B-459C-B843-A2CAD0B0CEA2.jpeg My first gun was a G17 almost 20 years ago and then I sold it and spent almost 20 years looking for that perfect all around gun to finally realize it’s a G19, G45 or G17. Learn from me, get one of those and be happy. Then buy more.

    The Sig p365 is easy to conceal, takes 10, 12, and 15 round mags, and can take a light.

    I like my M&P 2.0 Compact. Mine is a .40 but it is basically the same size as a Glock 19/23 only slightly thicker. The biggest reason I went with it instead of the Glock was price. Everything is nuts right now but they are usually a good bit cheaper.

    Just an update. I have a couple thousand rounds through my G48 using the Shield Arms mags. Not a single hitch. I don't know that it needed it, but when I first got the mags, I noticed that the springs were really short so I replaced them with wolff springs. I do that with my mags anyway.

    I've really taken to carry the G48. It is very comfortable, even when sitting. Honestly, I often forget it's even there.

    I did but liked the Hellcat better because gives you more flexibility in grip lengths. I’m betting they soon have a 15-17 round mag for it making grip about 5”. To have that 11+1 option with 4” grip too good for me to pass up.

    You have to get what works for you for me it was the Glock I'm still carrying my sig p938 and 1911 but I will be transferring over to the Glock 48 after I get back on my feet back to work and get my holster and magazine carrier square away
