    For many years I carried either a Bobtail Commander or full size 1911 in .45 in a Milt Sparks VMII with an Instructor belt. I just decided to switch to 9 for higher capacity so my current carry is either a CZ75 compact or full sized. I'm currently using a Kirkpatrick IWB while I wait for a set of VMIIs for them. Still using the Instructor belt.

    For both setups, I carry 2 reloads in a pocket holster in my left rear pocket.

    As I always preach, a good belt and a good holster you can carry pretty much anything. I typically wear a dark t-shirt or un-tucked shirt. No fancy oversized hawaiian shirts or anything.

    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I'm pretty much 50/50 between sub-compact 9mm IWB and a pocket 380 carried in a pocket holster. If I'm out hiking in the woods I might carry my .357 on a belt holster.

    I admit I downsized a bit recently due to my car and the way I live. I was carrying my Kimber Pro Carry 2 in a Galco King tuck but the grip kept digging into my leather seats and printing a lot so I switched to a Glock 27 (same holster). I feel just as well armed with it as I did with the Kimber. Only difference is I could hit a dime 10 times at 7 yards with the Kimber, not quite that accurate with the Glock.

    This was the scene outside the Hostess CEO's house when they announced the end of Twinkies.

    I carry a Glock 19 most of the time. However on occasion it is a 17 or 26. I prefer 9mm in my pistols and I love my Glocks.
