– the shorter sight radius is faster.
– there are few if any shoulder holsters for G35.
– this holster has an open muzzle and can accommodate a G35, but the
front sight would snag. as it is the barrel pokes out.
– using Underwood ammo I have to install an aftermarket barrel anyway.
– G22’s cost less.
This size pistol isn’t ideal for CCW, it’s a sidearm. As such, if I want to try to conceal it, I must use a shoulder holster. The pile of nylon you see here is actually two shoulder holsters.
After the velcro on the first one became worn, I bought another and put the mag pouches together, turning a double into a quad. with the spare mag I carry in the watch pocket of my jeans, there are six magazines for a total of 90+1 rounds.
The old holster w/o straps is used for transporting the gun around the house.
The ammo is Underwood 155 grain XTP. Coming out of that 5.3″ barrel, it was chronographed at 1354 ft/s for a KE of 631 and a PF of 210. That is at the low end of 10mm power.
The knife is a Benchmade Emerson CQC-7 combat folder.
