    Signing in from Maine

    I was Googling around for information about holsters for my S&W 3913, and several threads from here popped up among the results. Looks like a pretty good place to find all kinds of info.

    I've lived in the Midcoast region of Maine for over eighteen years now, and have had a concealed carry permit for almost that entire time. (Working on another renewal now, but my town no longer issues them, so going through DPS is almost like starting over.)

    Got my first LTC in MA back in 1972, and acquired a 1967 Colt Python shortly after. I still have the Python, but haven't fired it in ages because it has a "timing problem."
    Spent eight years in the Air Force Security Police back at the tail-end of the Vietnam Era, and shot Expert on every qualification with the S&W Model 15 that was issued in those days. Then at the end of 1977, I spent three weeks at the S&W Academy and really improved my shooting skills.

    My usual EDC these days is a SIG P226 DAK, which rides around in a Blackhawk SERPA paddle holster. I'll probably start up a new thread to ask about suggested holsters for the 3913, mainly something concealable so it can be a BUG for the P226 or whatever an employer might issue if I go back into law enforcement or armed security work.
