Pops, who was career Air Force, and carried either a M-1911A1 or M-15 for all of his career in addition to a CAR-15, recently traded in his Colt Series 70 Commander for a Ruger LCR in .380 ACP. Well not recently, been a couple of years, but after carrying a full sized duty gun, or nearly so, for round about forty years, the change was remarkable.
And he simply didn't want to dress around the gun anymore, he has a pocket holster for it and can just slip it into the pocket of his Wranglers or old man shorts and be off.
