Put me in the paddle category.


My Son tells me I have huge hands. I don't think they are that big but whatever. Smile
One of the reasons I sold my P365 was because I couldn't hit the mag. release without shifting my grip. Sometime after that, my son buys a Wilson Combat grip module for his and it was a night and day difference. Kinda wish I had it back but I already replaced it with a Hellcat that fills the roll for those few times I'm not carrying a Glock of some sort and need something really small.

Another magazine related issue I see is when people add magwells to their pistol and don't add the correct length baseplates to their magazines. The magazine may not be fully seated and falls out on the first shot. Many that do add the longer base plates use the ones that add extra rounds. There is nothing wrong with that if you thoroughly test the reliability. What sometimes gets overlooked is how well they stay together when they hit concrete. I'm sure more than a few members here have seen rounds spilled all over the ground. I personally stick with the +0 base plates and double check they are secured properly.
