    Well I see this forum is going to cost me money

    So I just found "Defensive Carry" yesterday at 5pm. After reading for 5 hours last night and a couple today I've already spent $140. I've found so much good info about holsters that will help me with my problems of CCing.
    I bought just now:
    1- N82 Tactical Pro holster for my Glock 19
    2- Remora with full sweat shield for my Glock 19
    3- Remora for my Sig P290

    Not sure if I should have got the reinforced top on the Remora for the Glock. What do you think?

    Oh - nobody tell my wife. She says she doesn't care but I know what really means.

    Do you mean she doesn't care whether you get the Remora reinforced top or that you've spent $140?

    That I spent the 140.

    I'm still wondering if I should get the reinforced top?

    The reinforced top is really more of an aid to holstering. If you are not in any hurry to holster your gun (and you really shouldn't be), you can do nicely with the non-RFT model. It actually makes it stick out a little more because it pushes the opening out. I've had both. I prefer the non-RFT for most applications. (In fact, got a non-RFT Remora coming to me for my SR1911 and should be here this week.)

    Yup. I've also found that coming here to request that someone talk me out of a buying a gun that I really don't need doesn't work very well either.

    You have gotten off cheap so far. I have spent over 50 times that since I have joined. Good thing I am not married.

    You're worried about a measly $140 bucks? Just wait there buckaroo 'till you get the itch to fill out the gun cabinet with some nice older metal. Then you really don't want anybody telling the wifey. She just might use one of those new acquisitions on you. Just kiddin.

    Yeah - wait'll he gets his first 1911, and then realizes that there is no cure from that point.

    Welcome from Wisconsin> it may save you money ( many of us have a drawer full of holsters) I have made contacts with members and purchased and sold items and it could save your life. Lots of good information on the site.( as with any thing else on the internet there is a small % of BS but very small here)

    She doesn't ... at least, not until she finds out how much you're spending.

    You're going to document each and every one of your purchases here, right??

    I thought the same way until I started browsing at AR15.com. Now that got expensive!

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Or when he buys a CZ and wonders how it multiplied and now there are 6 in the safe.
