No, I'm no better than anyone. But I think you'd be surprised at how many people carry a 19 (or at least they claim to). It conceals pretty well for me AIWB or over at around 3 o clock.

to each his own...

Some Police depts issue glock 23 as their duty weapon so it is NOT a small gun. Midsize I would call it same size as the glock 19.

The Glock 19 and 23 are virtually the same gun minus the barrel so yes, the are exactly the same size.
The Glock 19 and 23 are in Glocks compact line, granted they are a little bigger than some other "compact" semi autos.
You're right about one thing though they're NOT small, but they're NOT real big either. This threads about the LCP II so yeah, if you're comparing the LCP to a G19 (or 23) the Glock is huge, however still plenty concealable.

I was finally able to check out a LCP II last week.

It seemed thinner/blockier than the 2 LCPs that I've owned in the past.

Even though I have problems pulling the triggers on LCRs and other
Rugers, the LCP II was easy for me, as was the LC9-S pistol.

I'm not ready to go back to a .380, but think the 2 version would
be great if I needed deep concealment...over what my PPS M2
gives me.


They could probably improve the LCP series if they went to
a genuine striker, but such might be too fragile.

Right now it's nice to only have to buy 9mm for my autos.

As for those that can conceal a Glock 19 or other pistol all day
long.

I'm one of those that carried a heavy gun in a duty holster for over
20 years, and had to go to a Glock before being forced to retire early.


These days I have back problems and other ailments that keep me from
carrying guns that I'd like: P-01, PCR, Speed- Six , GP-100, 686, ect.

I don't think that I'm alone with this either.

Enjoy your youth and strong backs.

It is actually thicker/blockier than the previous LCP models.

I went to the range again this week and put another 50 rounds thru my LCP II and still had no problems. I had bought my LCP II at the same time as I did a S&W Shield PC, which I had 5 stoppages in it's first 2 range sessions. The good news there is that in the last 2 sessions with the Shield it has shot 100 rounds without a problem. So it seems it needed a bit of a break in. I have been having some FTE with my 1911 and erratic ejection where some of the spent cases hit me in the head. I just leaned (thanks to YouTube) that my extractor does not have near enough tension (as in no tension) and is the very likely culprit. I just purchased a new (better) extractor and a tool to adjust the tension, so hopefully it will become more reliable as well.
