    I have never had a problem concealing a full sized pistol so I never saw the need to carry a smaller pistol. If I get in a fight I want the best tool with me possible.
    How big are your pockets?

    I can fit both of those pistols in jeans or cargo pants.

    Capacity is the answer.

    Though in my agency we carry what would be considered a compact.

    It’s about shooter and task more than anything.
    A G19 can be a duty pistol for sure. It can't be a full size pistol though.

    Take nothing I say personal, remember....it's just the interweb!

    Really baggy jeans from the 90's.

    Not too awful pricey. I let my long-term foster kids each have one pair so they wouldn't feel too 'white bread' as they called it.
