    Hello all

    Hello from south central Texas. My name is Art and I just found this site. I've had my CHL for about a year now. Haven't carried because I couldn't find a gun that I liked. Had a Taurus PT140 that had a miserable trigger pull and lousy accuracy past 7 yds from bench. I've just purchased a S&W 908 that seems to suit me better and will probably start carrying if I can find a suitable holster. I've also started to enter the local IPSC and Steel matches with my Para P16.40 Ltd.
    Since I'm close to retirement I will be doing more traveling and will be carrying my new 908. I'm hoping that I will get some good tips and info from those with more experience in carrying.
    Thanks,
    Art

    Hello Art - I am sure we can provide you with some food for thought - also have a good browse around on older threads. Lots of good stuff.
