    Hellos from western PA.

    Hello all,
    I'm Dan from around Pittsburgh PA. I've been carrying for almost exactly a year now. I started out with a S&W M&P9c and never really felt like I did a good job concealing it well especially in the summer months no matter how I carried it(OWB, or IWB). So I tried a sig p232 which was better but it still felt obvious. Then I did the best thing ever, I finally bought what I always really wanted, a revolver. I bought a S&W model 60 with the 2.125" barrell chambered in .357 magnum. When I bought it I also bought a blackhawk leather IWB. Let me tell you that thing just diss appears. I have had it to the range a couple of times and it shoots dead on. The only thing I'm going to do to it is put a hogue grip on it(it's currently on order and will be here by the end of the week). The stock grips aren't bad but they don't do much to take out the sting of shooting .357's out of it(not that it is really that bad). I am also planning on using my tax return this year to get a reloading bench with all the equipment set up. I can not say enough how much I love my new snubbie(or revolvers in general). I would also recommend if you are having problems finding something you are comfturbal carrying try a snubbie revolver. I found that now I have a carry piece I feel I can hide well I don't leave it out in the car or at the house like I used to. Your carry permit and carry gun dose no good to you if you leave it at the house or in the car.

    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.
