I need some advice. I am beginning to shoot in competitions (real, not arcade)
and am thinking of doing this :http://pocketcarrycomp.com/default.aspx.
The rules say you can use a semi-auto up to 3.65 inches, barrel length. What do you guys recommend I get for this? Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks!!

I'd suggest a Springfield EMP in 9mm.......mine is super accurate

Depends on the rules, how bad you want to win, real world carry.

To win...probably a S&W M&P 9c or SR9c.

Real world..Sig 238. LCP, LCR or EMP.

I don't see anyone pocket carrying an EMP. Just sayin.

I am wondering about the 3" barrel length v.s. The allowed 3.65. Would the extra 1/2 inch sight radius be a significant disadvantage? Remember I'm starting off with a clean slate.

Your rig can be OWB or IWB or pocket

Me neither. But a got a 6'9 400 lb buddy that could. I ain't sheeet'in when I say he has been mistaken for Bigfoot before.

He is a professional duck/goose hunting guide. One day he was out hunting and some other hunters saw him and called DNR (and everybody else that would answer a cell phone) and reported seeing Bigfoot or a gorilla.. (NO JOKE)

I bet he could pocket carry a Glock 17.:rofl:

significant? no...
I'd wait a little bit before you get all decked out for this sport. They obviously are just getting started and Im sure a few clubs will pick it up, but it will take quite a bit if ever for it to take off

Ah, I see. So just a limit on barrel length not carry style.

In 15 mins it could have the factory trigger in it, & rear sight........so yes.

The EMP is in the Discreet category. Barrel length up to 3.65" and IWB/OWB possible. It doesn't meet the pocket carry category because the height is 5", the rules state a height no more than 4.6".

The P238 IS in the pocket carry category, however.

Ok but when I think "Pocket carry" I think, LCP, P3AT, PM9, J frames, LCR, PF9 and single stack autos. Not an Officer size 1911 platform. Not saying it is impossible but maybe, maybe 1 out of 500 CCW permit holders can pocket carry an EMP and get away with it. Chances are they are of large stature.

You're still arguing the pocket carry and I don't understand why...

The EMP is NOT in that category, so it doesn't matter!

I see your point,.......cargo pants/shorts, stong side cargo pocket!
Carried a lot like that in Miami. Sometimes the shirt just had to come off!

Never thought of cargo pocket. I'm just so accustomed to throwing an LCP in your front dominant pocket.

Not really trying to honestly. Sorry if I am coming across bitter just trying to understand where people were throwing the two into the same category. Maybe I'm just being dumb. No sleep for past 48 hours.

Interesting, I've never seen this before. If I were to shoot it, I'd use my P2000SK. I'd miss out on PC division by .1".

For the record, I do pocket carry my P2000SK on occasion.

How about a CZ Rami, cocked and locked version? I converted mine to SAO and it's more accurate than many larger firearms.
