    For close in non-lethal work, the application of a beard rub is RamRod's preferred method.

    I agree...but whatver works for him, right.

    You look like a bad dude RamRod. I guess you don't need spare mags when you're packin 2 guns? I'm not a Glock fan...but I bet you've got about 30 rounds total in those two pistols.

    Just a thought...I wonder how it would be reported(not that it really matters) if a civilian with multiple guns got in a shootout. Are there any instances of that anyone can remember in the news?

    Hey Ram Rod,

    A tougher belt might cut the sagging, but there is a LOT of weight on that strip of leather ().

    Your pic reminds me of the guys in the parking lot that I KEEP my eyes on...

    I'd say that you certainly have enough fire power with you.

    Take care...

    Nice to put a face to a name RamRod! Actually, you look pretty much like I thought you would; Well, I pictured you with a crew cut and clean shaven and wearing a three piece suit, but otherwise...

    I carry a Kimber UC II.45 with out any problems with the weight in either a IWB holster or a sholder holster, but sometimes (depending on how I dress) I will carry a Sig .380 in my inside vest pocket. I like the Idea of one of those Beltsters but I have not seen one other than in photes. AND I am very over 40... Rember growing old is NOT for sissies

    I'll take that into consideration. I was thinking that after I looked at the pics myself. It takes an objective opinion once in a while, because I can't actually feel them sagging. Plus, I think I need to punch another pair of holes in this belt...especially for OWB carry! Thanks.

    Reminds me of the guy that told his wife when she turned 40 he would trade her for two 20s. She told him, "Honey, you ain't wired for 220."

    In my 20's I dated a woman in her early 40's and in my 40's I dated a woman in her late 20's.

    Both were of short duration, about 6 months and I learned alot from both.

    So the 40's are good.

Well, the little woman and I went on one of our weekly shopping trips today. Yes...Wal Mart was involved in the itinerary. But I got this silly notion today that I'd sort of celebrate some of this fine fall weather and my need to wear a jacket. It's also raining here, but that doesn't bother me other than a range trip will be out of the question for a few more days. If you get any ideas from this post, then it's a good thing. My G22 rides in an Ahern three slot pancake, and my G27 is nestled very comfortably cross draw in my Mitch Rosen upper limit express holster. I put the keys in one jacket pocket, and the cell phone in the other....this helps to weight the pockets down enough where a gusty wind won't blow open my conceal jacket. I hardly ever zip up the front of any jacket I wear anyway. Enjoy.



    I like the old FBI method for keeping my jacket weighed down.

    All of my jackets are now weighed down with 00 buck ,lead pellets. Just take a sharp knife and cut a small slit on the inside of the hem at the bottom sides of your jacket/shirt.raincoat, etc.. Slip in 8-10 buckshot and put a drop of superglue on the slit. (Much quicker than thread.)

    Works like a charm.

    Having married a younger woman 13 years ago, maintaining her interest and loyalty is truly a pleasure for both, eliminating any of the risk you mention....

    Cool

    Well, at sixty-nine and with a little bit of a belly (not that much) the belly tries to bush down my waistband. Add my 1911 or my XD9 and the further down my waistband goes. I just bought the Kahr CW9 (15+ounces & less than an inch thick) and two inside waistband holsters. One without a thumb break and one with since at times I ride a motorcycle and don't want to take the chance of the gun slipping out of the holster and I would never know.

    Sure visual sign of someone carrying? Constantly touching the area of your clothes with the gun and constantly hiking up you pants.
