pocket in good weather, or coat pocket in bad weather. A swatch of Velcro, (sewn into the pocket) and a matching swatch on the Kydex pocket rig will let you use the same rig in either garment,lock it into proper position, and be certain that it won't be "drawn" along WITH the gun.

ISSUE is how to get real power, control in a pocket auto

that's truly unnoticable, even when a skilled searcher is LOOKING you over for a gun. The 600 ft lbs of the 356 TSW Split Nose (55 grs, 2200 fps) is way out in front of anything else that's ever been proposed. Only a fanatic l is going to pay $3000 for a super worked-over La France "Nova" chop of the Star BM(or do the 30 hours of work himself) but $50 to deepen the chamber of a $550 Kahr PM9 9mm is no big deal. Neither is $175 for 50 Split Nose bullets, and 50 of the same cast swc's(hollowpointed, but not hollowbaseds, or slit) These latter hp's have the same ogive when loade(for testing their feed reliabilty) but of course can't be loaded to quite as high a velocity as the hollowbased Split Nose bullets). 50 of such rds, along with firing off 30 of the(real deal) split noses, tells you what you need to know, leaving you with 20 rds of Split Noses for "duty". Big deal, total cost of under $900, half the price if some of the 1911's, which guys rarely, if EVER actually carry, and if they use 230 gr jhp's in them the 356 is easily twice as likely to suffice.

Why not buy a Glock Model 30, load it with 230 Grain Remington Golden Sabres, and save yourself all this split nosed garbage?

Because he has no knowledge of anything past 1970. And what he quotes from back then is inaccurate pipe dreams that never came to be. IF you just HAVE to have a hot 9mm, you can get a very good gun in .357Sig for one hell of a lot less than $900, AND keep your hands.

Shot placement is far more important than a wonder bullet. So erika/gunkid when is the last time you shot a .356 TSW or is this just something you read in some gun magazine?
