Actually, IMO... pocket carry is pretty damn good with a backup. I agree with GK that if ya really want to draw ASAP, it's tough to beat having your hand already on the gun. Would want something 9mm+ as the primary, however. CCW IWB is my preference, but it's pretty slow, relatively speaking.
Re: accuracy of the Mak. They're pretty good, my top three CF would probably be P210, P7 and 1911. I think the down point is the crummy DA trigger... and you don't really want to carry them cocked/UNlocked, right? My wife's is a Bulgarian from Arsenal I think and it's pretty damn accurate in single action, but that DA pull is gonna be what you get your first shot off with when carried most of the time.
the mak AMMO is doing GREAT to group 2" at 25 yds, out of a Contender. a gun CAN'T be more accurate than its ammo is. It's IMPOSSIBLE to beat hand on gun, if the guns are concealed, and you are talking a belt rig against the pocket rig. You can't even come CLOSE to hand in pocket draw, with realistic concealment of a belt rig. That is, a hung out shirt or a fastened winter coat. You will be .30 second slower, even if you are as fast as I am, and you AINT.
Yah, I didn't mean to generalize about all of them... I'm also wondering how much work can be done on the SA reset as well, because that was another issue. FWIW, the one that we got was hand picked by us from J&G, very clean.
