TTAG will be at the Las Vegas SHOT Show in force. If we can find Booth #N380 in the Sands’ labyrinthine exhibition halls, we’ll stop by Full Conceal and ask them a simple question: WTF? How in the world is this, this “thing” (Ready in seconds) an improvement over, say, any proper pocketable pistol (e.g., SIG P238)? I suspect they’ll give us the same elevator pitch you’ll find on their website . . .
Why settle for small magazine capacity, short barrel, short sight radius? When you go up against bad guys, from crazy mass shooters, terrorists, you need the maximum firepower you can comfortably conceal and carry. Having the larger pistol means faster follow up shots, higher bullet velocity, and better accuracy. Own the situation and make each shot count.
Which is why I carry a Cabot S-Class Commander-sized 1911 (and a spare mag). Remove cover garment (when not open carrying), draw, disengage external safety, aim and shoot. But what do I know? I’ll tell you what I don’t know: why the Full Conceal Folks completely ditched the sights for their prototype pistol. That’s another question worth asking when we Viva Las Vegas.
