    Newbie from Louisiana

    Hi everyone! I'm here from the great southern state. I'm about halfway through my CCW. I submitted my form to Florida a month and 4 days ago and I think the average for Florida is 2 months.

    My current handgun is a Sigsauer P228 but I think I'm going to pick up either a 1911 or XD9SC to carry since the P228 prints pretty good on me (I'm a big guy.)

    Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself, I hope to be able to contribute what I can and take alot from the vast knowledge on the site.

    See ya!

    Hello



    228 is a great carry piece - and doubt a 1911 or XD will print any the less. Maybe work on the rig and position because IMO a 228 should be well manageable.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Before you give up on the 228 check some different holsters, and try dark colored clothing if you haven't already.
