1. there is a great comparison from a womens perspective on youtube, you should check it out.Looking to add a 380 for my wife. Thought on the lc380 as it compares to glock 42 or smith and Wesson 380 bodyguard?
I thought that too, but, I carry mine everywhere (I primarily wear jeans) in a desantis nemesis, doesn't really print and feels fine. I carry an extra mag in an old swiss army knife holder, works for me, should work for you. BTW should the 6+1 bother you, one can put in a magGuts it increases the capacity by one and does not increase the footprint over the flat mag plate at all.So now I have had a glock 42 in my hand and fired a few rounds. Felt great and I think will works for my wife. She will carry in purse or have in her nightstand not have it in the pocket. so the little larger size compared to Lcp or other is not big to her. It definitely has easier recoil with she wants.
Now I have been thinking it might be a pocket backup for me. Not now. Feel it's a little too big for actual slip it in the pocket gun. Back to the Lcp for that. I am fine with recoil. And if I am using it out of pocket, it's because it's close range. For the money, it's still one of the best options.
So lesson here is I went out looking for my wife and found it along with talking myself into another gun for my stock.
