Carried the EC9s for the first time

Since it fits my hand better with the finger groove extension on the mag, but not  my pocket, I carried it in a cheap, leather, belt slide my wife picked up on clearance somewhere for under $5.

I wore it down to youngest's place under a Hawaiian shirt, then under tee-shirt while doing some work around the house and running some errands. I think I like the OWB carry for it

    Those light thin pistols really disappear on you even OWB.  My wife’s 43 doesn’t even feel like I have a gun on my belt.

    The G43 is another one on my list to eventually look at.  I have a Shield 9mm, but Im always looking at options.  If something better comes along it will be time to replace.

    There is a SIG 365 somewhere in my future as an option to the 43. But for now my Ultra Kimber in a cheap Uncle Mikes soft holster carried AIWB does the trick so well I find myself without real reasons to take the plunge... Sigh...

    What is wrong with because you want to?

    KP glad you like the Ruger.  I have a couple of them and can find no fault.

    I carry my LC9s IWB/Appendix. It was a toss up at the time between it and the G43 - Big Chief found me a PSA blowout on it, so that's what I ended up with. Actually paid less for it than Knite did - how does PSA do it? That site is evil!
    I'd like to try a P365 or a Hellcat sometime, but I'm quite happy with my Ruger.

    I need to get hands on with one of those.
