Hello from Fort Knox, KY
I'm originally from York, PA but have now found home in the Fort Knox, KY area. Having been in the military for over 15 years, weapons are nothing new to me. My wife and I purchased our first pistol and weapon, S&W 99 OL (40), when we bought our first house out in town a little over 4 years ago. Since then, we have purchased many other weapons (rifles and pistols). However, I have finally convinced my wife in having me CCW since our last camping trip and having some coyotes come near our site, lol. All I had to protect us was me and the couple knives I carry when camping.
So, I have now finally received my CCW License and am deciding on a holster for 2 of my pistols, S&W 99 OL (40) & Ruger LC9 w/Lasermax Sight. I have narrowed my choices to High Noon Holster's Closing Argument or Tailgate. I have talked with a couple people about these and Iím still having trouble deciding. If anyone has an opinion on these 2 or any others, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance and I look forward to chatting on here.

A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

High Noon is a great holster company. I have the Closing Argument for a Glock-26 and it is a quality holster.
Either the Closing Argument or the Tailgate would work quite well...both are tuckable, ride high (which is a good thing), and have a nice cant.
