No way I could pull it off.Except for maybe in deep winter.I wish I could because I really like my G17.
Guess ill weigh in as I have before on this. The tactical advantages of full size vs. subcompact or mouse guns are enormous. The inconveniences of carrying full size are, comparatively, negligible. I carry a Glock 22 in a Crossbreed Supertuck, and two spare mags.
But that's me. I'd rather a guy or gal carry SOMETHING, than nothing! If full size isn't for you, it isn't for you. Carry on!
but rather the level of your training and practice with the gun and your ability to execute a well placed shot when necessary
