Obviously you need a good holster, for IWB I have not found anything better or as good as a crossbreed, they need to be broken in a bit, but they are the best, I have tried many, including alien gear, there is no comparison.

One thing that is often overlooked, a good GUN belt, it makes all the difference in the world. I have 2 crossbreed belts, but others make fine gun belts.

If carrying iwb, inspect and clean your gun often, I had an m&p shield that i carried appendix for a while, the mag release rusted solid very quickly.

The first few times you go out concealed, you will think that everyone can see your gun, it’s weird, but you’ll get used to it.

You should always carry a back up mag, more for malfunctions then ammo.

Carry what you shoot. I used to carry glocks, but I learned that I don’t enjoy shooting them, now I shoot and carry 1911s, and a Kahr pm9 on occasion.
Yep, Glock 26. I was looking at the single stack one because it was slightly smaller it looked like in comparison, but I figured if I get the standard stack I can use bigger mags for G17 and G19s.

it is nice to have all the larger mags available, and you can get ‘grip extensions’ for use with a g19 mag

the G26 is one of the few glocks that i still like

take some classes, get some training, it is a lot of fun

happy shooting!

So I have a Glock holster, it's made of plastic and it's really super low profile. I carried a full frame Glock 22 in it, and with the right belt it was a pretty comfortable set up, easy to draw although no safety features . I don't know if this helps, but the Glock holster is pretty cheap and might be a good starting point for you.

I used to carry the 26 and my fave IWB holster for it was a Kydex version:

But now I carry the other baby Glock (29) and alternate between a IWB and shoulder harness. The 29 is wider and more difficult to carry IWB while driving.

9mm vs. 10mm but the recoil isn't much more noticeable on the 10mm. Less sharp impulse really. I can shoot the 29 more accurately and at further distances. Switched over to the 29 from the 26 for camping trips in the mountains in case bear spray doesn't work.

G19 is the Goldilocks size for carry. Carried a shield before. Took some force on force classes. Wanted to carry more rounds. M&P full size was too big, glock 19 worked and has 15 rounds.

Really not the size you carryll you shoot. 90+% of the time the guy that scores the first hit wins.

I carry a 42, although I shoot a 43 and 28. I have been a firearm instructor for years. I take about 16 hours of private tactical instruction at HAAC Law Enforcement Academy annually.

I support everyone's right to carry but would not want to be in the same room if a weekend warrior with little training was defending him/her self.

if the recoil between 9mm and 10mm isn’t that noticeable then you are not shooting full power 10mm, most ‘ball’ or ‘range’ 10mm is little more then .40, real 10mm has got considerably more pop then 9mm

i love and often carry 10mm in the 1911 platform, get yourself some underwood or buffalo bore 10mm and hang on!

yes, yes, yes!

I am in CA, where the barrier to entry for concealed carry is substantial, and greater then most places. When I (finally) got my permit, I felt under trained/prepared, and i had taken more training then most. I got more, and practiced ‘dry’ at home.

Those who know will say you can never have too much training, I say you can never have enough.

Amen. Compared to a 9mm the 10 has a lot of recoil. Actually muzzle flip might be a more accurate way to describe it.

Just picked up this little baby tonight brand new. I've always wanted one, but wasn't really sure what I would do with it other than have some fun? I have my Benelli M4 for home defense along with assorted rifles of course for long range practice, so this one is just going to be a range queen for fun. Anyway it's obviously a Kriss Vector .45 enhanced, and I also purchased a couple extended mags that hold 25 rounds each. I didn't get a chance to fire it today as the range was closing, but will definitely get there sometime this weekend to try out! I just put an inexpensive Holosun sight on it for now, $175 gets it done for the time being there.

Since your first sentence is a question, I will make a statement.

I think the Vector, Scorpion, and MPX are perfect "small house (like 1500 sq ft) I am awake home defence guns"

Everyone loves their AR builds, but in a shit hit the fan someone is a danger in your house and you go to your weapon, clearing hallways and rooms with those three would be so much easier/better.

And, yes. It is a cool range gun too.

Cabelas has the 10mm Buffalo Bore brand, I've gone through a few boxes, but they normally only have the 180gr stuff in stock, no different than the Sig Elite Perf or most of the other 10mm range ammo at Academy or Cabelas. I tried one box of the 200gr Bear Load and it did have a bit more recoil, but nothing I would call muzzle flip. Have you borrowed a G29 at a range? The wider / heavier top does really help.

I used to have the S&W 10mm, and there I agree with you. Much more muzzle lift.

Sweet buy! I got to handle and put a bunch of rounds through one last summer. Definitely on the "buy" list for me.
Will get the carbine one due to the local gun laws, plus the m4 stock fits me better.

Thanks! Just got back from the range after putting exactly 200 rounds through it. WOW, what a firearm. It's like shooting a BB gun, zero recoil which is incredible for a .45. It made a poor shot like me look competent, I was putting everything in a tight circle at 25 yards with iron sights (I dumped the optic, I liked shooting with the flip up sights much better). Let several people shoot it as well, because as expected it drew a lot of attention. It performed flawlessly, first 200 went off without a hitch. I can't wait to clean it and take it back tomorrow, it was definitely worth the money. I hope you can get one of your own soon!

I really like the 26 and used to carry it but then I go the HK VP9SK and has been my favorite so far. Love it. Thinking of getting another one as backup.
