    Howdy from the North Olympic Peninsula

    New to carrying. But, at the ripe old age of 69, figured it's about time to get on board. I'll be carrying an XDs in a Theis holster. My other gun is a Baretta FS-92 and only a limited time shooting.

    While it's been a long time since I used weapons, it's not as if I'm entirely a novice to handling weapons and the Baretta resembled the 1911 I carried in VN...in addition to the M-60, M-14 and M-16 I used as a door gunner.

    Have been doing a lot of homework on concealed carry, but open to any particular advise that may help me safely come up to speed more rapidly. Thanks all.

    Pick up a copy of the book In The Gravest Extreme, written by Massad Ayoob. A worthy introduction into many of the pros/cons of the use of force and carrying a concealed firearm.
