New member here - I am happy to join the forum and look forward to contributing to the overall discussion.
I am currently carrying a Springfield XD Sub Compact .40. I carry in several different ways. Appendix carry, Cheap cloth and plastic shoulder rig, Blackhawk Level 2 OWB.
I am itching for a 4" 1911 and doing a ton of research on this - that is how I found the forum.
Thinking about starting with an import 1911 and getting a feel for the gun and the carry experience before really getting into the higher end models.
Also going to go with an IWB holster for this (thinking Crossbreed) and finally getting a good quality leather shoulder rig.
I do the occasional IDPA course and am starting the process of exposing my kids to the range.
Any thoughts, greeting and other ideas are welcome.
Thanks again for the great community.

Only two defining forces have ever died for you.....

One died for your soul, the other for your freedom!

Welcome aboard. Good luck in the search.
I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
I love Tiberius/Maggie.

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.

Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
