    1.  P3AT, 6-round mag installed, 2nd mag, twelve Win 95-gr. FMJ cartridges, concealment concepts pocket holster with mag pocket:  14.7 oz

    2.  S&W M&P 340 (lightweight .357 mag) c/w Crimson Tech laser sight, speedloader, ten Speer 38+P 135 gr. GDSB-JHP cartridges, Mika pocket holster:  20.7 oz.

    FWIW--the 340 package will fit in most jean's front pockets but with the speedloader in another pocket; the P3AT package complete fits in a hip pocket.

    I carry the S&W daily--and will probably carry the P3AT package once it's broken in and is demonstrated to be reliable.  If I gain enough confidence, I'll carry it as a primary after I put an Armalaser on it.   The ten rounds of 38+P are more appealing to me than the twelve rounds of .380.  Both cartridges run about 900 fps, and the GDSB 135-gr. 38+P JHPs are a favorite with the j-frame carry crowd.

    I am interested in the high capacity mag for the P3AT.  I've been looking for one, where did you come across it.

    He didn't, his post basically says he uses two 6-rounders.
