    Hello and thank you for your site.
    I have enjoyed reading many threads. I am a middle aged professional who enjoys the shooting sports. I do have concern about keeping myself and family safe and have been starting to think more seriously about concealed carry. I have my permit, and every now and then "carry", but it is by no means "natural" for me yet. I am a quite small guy 5'7", 130, avid runner, fit, etc. But not a lot of meat on my bones. I love my Kimber 5" 1911, but am working on better ways to carry it. I am learning a lot from the many threads that already cover this topic.
    Thanks
