Nothing wrong with that, nothing laughable.Interesting thread. Some will laugh at this old man but these are some of the reasons I have carried only S&W DA revolvers since 1986. I love to go to a match and compete with 1911s but for business use I still prefer a DA revolver.
In an El Paso Saddlery Sky six holster. Just about right in all respects if you ask me.Interesting thread.

Ha. You actually suggested the very gun that swore me off Kimber for life. Not so much the failed repeated trips to Kimber, but more they way CS treated me.You need to check out the Kimber Micro 9. I was going to an event where I was going to be wearing a coat and tie and didn't want to go unarmed, and I didn't really want to carry my normal DW ECO. So I ended up buying a Micro 9 from Buds for around $500. Wow! What a cool little mini 1911. It holds 7+1 rounds of 9mm, weighs less than 16 ounces, and is an accurate, great shooting little pistol. Just won a local BUG match with it shooting against lots of guys shooting Glocks. No grip safety, but I made a kydex AIWB holster and molded in a little ledge that fits up under the safety in the "ON" position to hold it in that position. I appendix carry cocked-and-locked. It is easy to forget you even have that pistol on you it's so small, thin and light.So a few years ago, I decided to do something about these rare occasions. My answer (FWIW) was a S&W Shield.
As a fellow P365 carrier, it is a bit scary carrying this gun loaded in a soft holster such as the nemesis. Depending on which pocket you carry, imagine leaning against something. For example, you have it in the back pocket and you sit down on a porch step or something where the edge of the hard surface just happens to be where the trigger starts.. soft side holster gives up to your body weight and bang.Just recently started carrying and have been working on best practices to ensure I do it safely. I carry a P365 in a Nemesis pocket holster. So I was practicing not put anything else in the same pocket with the pistol, finding clothing that minimized printing, and verifying that I could draw without the holster coming out with the pistol. As a newbie to carrying I was very concerned about a negligent discharge during this period so I kept the chamber empty even though I was aware this was not generally considered to be a good practice.
Recently I was at the range to verify function and point of impact with my new carry load. When I racked the slide to chamber a round the pistol locked up hard. I've never experienced this with my other, full sized, pistols. I had to drop the mag and load from slide lock to restore function. Small slide & grip and very stiff springs make it very difficult to for me to load the P365 by racking the slide even in a no-stress situation. So now it is 10+1, cocked and locked (mine has the thumb safety).
