    Re: the .45 XD. The XO bought one, loved it, carried it. Then came the recall. The "upgraded" gun had a substantially heavier and creepier--in a bad way--trigger than before. Worse, it had been 100%. After return, it was not reliable. It doesn't live here anymore. Some relationships just don't work out.
    Sounds like a great idea Papa.

    That would have my attention.

    We could...

    There are issues with the modern J-frames however. The more time Shop Monkey and Swamp Thing need to put on something the more the cost goes up. I fear we may end up with something like the MOA Kalashnikov that nobody wanted at the price point.

    That said...for a true NPE...not a rules NPE or social NPE or an NPE with a degree of diplomatic protection, a 9mm J Frame with locally sourced FMJ is the ticket...or so I hear.

    What issues do you see with the modern J frame?

    Just a parts thing. Once they are NP3, they need fitting to assemble.

    OP here. Made some adjustments and wore the G19 today. Seemed to do OK. Printing was down and I whined less about comfort. May pass on buying a small gun for awhile and save my shekels for an SI RMR package. The G19 would work better to defend against an active shooter or pair ala San Bernardino.

    Same decision I've made... A 642 in the pocket may be comfortable but it's not nearly as comforting as a G19. I've got some SI NP3 goodies coming in for the 19's internals and my "next gun" money will be an RMR upgrade instead of a G26 or 43.
    And the J can still ride along for Extra comfort.

    Nice. Always worth the effort to try to make your ‘real’ gun work, rather than go to a ‘compromise’ gun. That said, I do have a G43 and a Seecamp for the times that I can’t possibly carry a big boy gun.

    I have or have had the XDs in .45 ACP, Ruger LC9 (back before the Shield, XDs and G43 became available), the Shield in 9mm, the G43 and the Sig 365. Also included in that are a multitude of S&W J-frames, which I still have and carry on occasion. When the Shield came out, it displaced both the LC9 and the XDs for me. Then, the G43 came along and displaced the Shield. I'm still evaluating and reliability testing the P365. I only have about 500 rounds through mine, so far, but it has been without issue. At this point, however, my usual NPE carry is the G43. I'm anticipating a move to the free state of Arizona around the first of the year, before the Peoples' Republic of California can completely implode and I can still sell my house. Once that happens, I anticipate a number of possible changes based on what I can test.
