    Life in the 40's

    Well, the 40's aint so bad. I'm in my 40's (age), I like my 40's (G22 and G27), it's 45° here today (jacket cover weather). What's it all got to do with concealed carry you ask? 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.

    You definitely look like someone I wouldn't want to meet in a dark alley, Ram Rod. So I guess that's a *good thing.* Looks like you're ready for just about anything.

    Do you carry anything non-lethal that you can use, if you think you don't need to shoot, but you want to get someone out of your face? I've seen remarks by others here that this is a pretty good idea....

    At 42 I find it easier carrying a lighter gun and dating a younger woman. My knees have never felt better.

    What, no knife? Tsk, tsk, tsk. Can you effectively reach the 27? I will say that your outfit looks good ;). I never wear a pistol on my belt weak side (pocket only), but I have often thought about it.

    Yup.....it is good to carry something a little lighter as you get older......I am down to a snubbie now at age 56!!!

    I seldom venture down "dark alleys", so nothing to worry about. Non-lethal? Me and my 31" arm extension, two legs...either of which are willing and able to leave the ground at a moment's notice.

    Only Fords I ever drove were company vehicles.

    Funny you mention that. I can actually (and very effectively) draw that weak side/cross draw G27 with my weak hand if needed. I actually practice that, and I can sweep the cover garment and draw in one swift stroke!

    I retired 4 months before my 40th Birthday, so I can say I never worked in my 40's. Unless I get a job in the next 5 weeks.

    Belt

    Hard to tell Ram Rod, but it looks like a more supportive belt might go better with those two pistols. Say a Wilderness 1.5 frequent flyer's Instructor belt.
