    New Hand From Central CA

    Hi All! I had a CCW 30 years ago but when I moved into another county that opportunity was lost. I'm now back in a county that follows the shall issue rule. In the last 30 years a lot of things have changed! Including my physical ability's. I have carpel tunnel issues in both wrists, Arthritis, and have had several surgery's to my right shoulder. These things keep me from shooting major power hand guns, or even minor calibers in the smallest guns. So I'm looking at 32, and 380 autos in mid sized guns. I live in a very rural area where gangs and crime are not that common but I work in a large city where they are. The other thing that's changed is my weight. When I was young and trim it seemed like I could carry easily any where on my person without major problems. now I'm having trouble finding a comfortable holster. That's how I found this forum. Thanks all. DR

    Welcome aboard. I will let more qualified people help you with the .32 and .380 stuff. As far as holsters, are you looking for OWB or IWB? Or something like an ankle holster for a small gun?

    Welcome from Wisconsin! I'm sorry to hear that you have problems that limit your ability to shoot a handgun. I have absolutely no ideas that can help you find the proper holster or carrying option. I'm sure you'll get some ideas right here on this site.

    IWB was what I was used to, But I'm open to any comfortable carry modes. A friend is loaning me an OWB for a Walther PP. When it gets here Ill give it a try in the 4 O clock position. I have a shoulder rig but its not easy to get into. DR
