    Hello from SE PA!

    I had spent quite a period of time researching and reading on this forum, and I finally joined last week.

    After some intensive research I bought my first pistol on Friday, Springfield XDm 3.8" .40s&w.

    I carried all day yesterday on a rather long road trip, and it was even more comfortable than I expected it to be!

    However, I have had a real hard time trying to adjust my holster so it is actually concealed. I have tried numerous combinations of shorts and polos/tshirts. With just one combination I felt comfortable with, without any printing. I logged back in this morning to do some more research for holster recommendations.

    This forum has treated me well so far, and I thank the community for all of the information provided on here!

    When I made my purchase, the recommendation was a Blackhawk IWB holster, which I am not entirely satisfied with.

    I have been contemplating the CBST, which seems to have fabulous reviews.

    Welcome! Remember open carry is legal in PA, so do your best to not print but don't be overly concerned. My t shirt was flapping in the breeze this AM on the motorcycle, never concerns me (although I try not to flap, plus wear a leather jacket....but with this heat wave?)
    Exercise your 2nd amendment rights....not doing so jeopardizes that right for everyone.
