    Glad to be here!

    I stumbled onto this site while searching for holsters. Took delivery of my new High Noon IWB rig for my new XDm 40 today. Talk about timing! The holster is beautiful and I'll post some pics as soon as I figure out the technique. I was an NRA-certified instructor for about 20 years but let it lapse as I just wasn't teaching as many students as I would have liked. Been into guns since I was of age to buy my own. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool 1911 guy but with things getting more and more crazier here near the border, I decided to go the high-cap route and got an XDm 40. I've been a handloader for more than 30 years and done my share of amateur gunsmithing. Lots of good info here and I only hope to be able to contribute to it. I ride a Victory Vegas and my nickname has been "Hawk" since 1973 (explanation of my handle). I can already see I'm going to burn a lot of time on this site!

    Welcome to the forum from NM. Glad to have you with us. Which High Noon did you go with? I have a couple of them, the only thing that I didn't like about them was their thickness. Excellent quality though!

    Welcome from South Carolina...
    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.
