    I do take a little pride in my ghetto craftsmanship, and ya know, the rig seems to actually works fairly well. Seem to have found the right spot on my belt, wore all day without it shifting. The screws are just long enough to grab belt without coming near my gun. I've got a smart carry coming, and thought about picking up an off the shelf IWB to get me by, but I think this will do well enough until the crossbreed comes.

    Us old-timers would never laugh at a newbie, check out this site:

    http://smartcarry.com/

    I havent tried one yet in all of my years (2 days)carrying, but enough people here think enough of it that I was willing to order one.

    I gotta give ya credit for admiting you put wood screws in your holster. Also gotta say, it looks like it works.
    I've used an Uncle Mikes IWB for my 642 for 5 months now( among others). I dont like it , but its not too bad if I have a t-shirt between the holster and my skin. The clip holds fairly well, I havent had to insert screws yet. I have a Tucker Leather IWB on the way. Can't wait. I'm ready to send Uncle MIke down the road...
    Smart carry gets a big thumbs up for a small gun.

    Smartcarry is a little weird but works great

    I carry my XD .40 subcompact in my smart carry in shorts and a tshirt, in jeans, dress pants, my suit to church... No one has EVER noticed - not even my wife. And yes, she is rather affectionate...

    When a thug shoves a gun in your face in the mall parking lot, which would you rather have in your hand - a gun, or a cellphone?

    Congrats on getting your permit. There's nothing like that first day carrying. Before long, you'll be like the rest of us, feeling naked if we go out without a weapon. In any event, you will appreciate your Crossbreed holster when it arrives. There's just nothing like a custom holster. There are many serviceable holsters available, but when you put on a custom, there's a world difference. I've heard good things about the Crossbreed. I considered it before I bought my Max Con V from Gary Brommeland. It's a fantastic piece of equipment, comfortable, and very well made. I couldn't be happier.

    LB congrates on both the permit and your new company as well. What are you charging for a franchise fee?

    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    you did a nice job with the screws. all those custom leather holster makers might want to watch it, or they'll be out of business.

    Am surprised nobody hit on this yet... just curious - your union steward dictates what you do off the job?
