Concealment

To me it seems a bit large for a concealed option (jmoo). I have been researching the SA Hellcat for a while now based on its size and reported reliability. There is a report where they have shot 20k rounds from the same pistol with no issues and only the recommended maintenance. It also has a cut out for a micro red dot sight (eyes are not as good as they used to be). So I have finally made the purchase and I am now waiting for my micro red dot (swamp fox sentinel) to arrive. Hopefully I will be at the range getting everything zeroed in by the middle of next week.

Agreed. Although any weapon can be CONCEALED with enough effort, larger weapon concealment brings other problems, like access.

My number 1 conceal criteria is a loaded weapon under 20 oz.

I have several, S&W J frames, SIG 938, and NAA 22mag

There are indivuals at the high end of security, such as the Secret Service, that don't worry about conceal, they are after lowering the print exposure.

CC for EDC:

Access & Reliability I prefer a Heckler & Koch P2000 sk in .40S&W...This pistol works for me. No printing with a Mitch Rosen leather IWB.

Just talking concealability here, but I'm not a big guy (5'6" x 150#). I've carried an HK USPc .45 (37.7 oz loaded 10+1 and 7" long by 6" tall with 10rd mag) for 9 years in a CrossBreed holster. I also carry my cell phone in a button pocket in my shirt which also provides weapon concealment. In the summer, it's a light khaki shirt and in winter it's flannel. It can't be seen because neither shirt is buttoned. If you live in a more tropical area, Hawaiian shirts are great.

Well it arrived and isn't much smaller than my 1911. So I am getting an M18 now. Since I like military weapons I'll just save the M17 for home defense along with the 1911's

slight hijack. Not CCW but range qualification.

I haven't done MTT for a few years now.
When M17 first came out, I was convinced the modular grip size and short pull/reset will send more soldiers to qualify and reach higher scores as I observed most (even SOF types) struggled with M9 grip and long double action pull.

Those of you who are doing ranges, have you noticed much improvement i.e. among small handed males and females, and the limp wrist types??


(in case anyone gets triggered, I got limp wrists, small hands myself and it took me $$$ of tax payers money, hours, efforts and technique modification to rule with the M9 at All Army Small Arms, and at the National Match earning the P100 and team trophy)

Impressive! At least I now know from whom to obtain shooting tips!

My thoughts. IMHO can't beet the trigger feel, sights and accuracy out of the box. Reliability with no misfeeds or ejection issues.

I have 2. P220 and P320 X Carry 9mm. Both I purchased online as Red Box guns, rebuilt. Great deals under $400 each.

Both differ slightly from M17 full size. With correct holster M17 can be great for CCW and EDC.

Don't think you can get for under $400 now!

Your most likely correct. There are deals to be had, friend.

I ordered mine from gunsmidwest!


You might try https://www.sigsauer.com/p320-m17.html and find a dealer.
