    Get a J frame and Smart Carry. As long as your pants aren't too tight, you can pack that little snubby and a speed strip and keep your shirt tucked in, to boot.

    I was pushin' it with the pants...apparently they shrunk a bit at the dry cleaner

    Ball was off base. Had a good time. Ross Perot was our guest speaker. Buckeye, you need to get your ass to the ball next year! Definitely something you gotta do at least once in your enlistment.

    Damn right. I always had the same problem, no matter which cleaners did it!

    Get to the ball. No greater way to appreciate the Marines that preceeded you than to continue the traditions and be part of the traditions. Do it once and you will do it again. If money is tight, see the SgtMajor/Company Gunny, they will always have a pot of money to help you attend.

    Semper fi, Marines.

    Shrinking pants have been a problem for me as well. Don't know how they do that, just hanging in the closet. But, that's another plus for dark slacks, they don't show the bulge of the Smart Carry and the 642.

    And, if the right lady notices, it could be an unexpected plus ... (nudge, nudge, wink, wink).

    Amazing how they always do that, glad you had a good time. Its not that I don't wanna go to a ball. But in 07 I was in SOI, in 08 I was in Iraq (at least I got some beer), and in 09 my unit didn't have one because it was during pre-deployment leave. Next year I should be able to make it to one, unless my upcoming pump gets extended by several months.

    Edited since I saw this from Chorizo

    It's not money or anything, its been because of my units deployment schedule. And with all due respect sir, I think that spending the Birthday in a hostile land surrounded by a bunch of my best friends is a way to continue and honor the traditions of those before us. But I really do want to get to a ball as well.

    Pocket holsters are really slick....can't beat a Nemesis. I also like ankle rigs....use one on occasion.
