    My next gun i'm thinking of getting a small 9mm for concealed pocket carry?
    I was plan on getting the Glock43, however I really like the Glock43x. Anyone using either the 43 or the 43x for pocket carry especially the summer?
    I'm a tall thin guy 6'2" 190lbs.

    Depends on the pocket. Cargo shorts I can pocket carry a 1911. Jeans, not so much.

    A couple of my friends pocket carry the 43. I can pocket carry my shield, but like smaller guns for pocket carry. Like my lcp2, lc9s Pro, P365 with flush mag. I’m only 5’8” ( on a good day) 165 pounds though.

  4. My son pocket carried his G43 with a 'ClipDraw and I have pocket carried my G42 with the same..not hard at all. Really like the 43x, how it felt in my hand but went with -43 as it gave some versatility with clothes choices..I got a FAB +4 mag extension so have an essentially 43x, if I choose.

    Depends on the pockets. Some people can pocket carry bigger guns.
    In any case, the G43x is such a small gun that IWB is always an option.
    I’m just waiting for the black slide model.
