    New Member from the Dallas TX Area

    I've had a CHL for almost 3 years now. I had been pocket carrying or IWB carrying a tiny little Seecamp LSW32 .32auto. I recently gifted myself with a new Gen 4 Glock 19 for Christmas. Due to ammo shortages I've only been able to take it to the range once to get familiar with it. I love it so far. The glock 19 was a gun I've wanted for years. Seemed to me like the perfect balance between capacity, concealability, grip size, and simplicity.

    Here is what I used to carry compared to what I now carry:

    Its taken a lot of adjustment to be carrying something SO much larger. But I feel much safer with something other than a "get off me" gun.

    I moved here from CA almost 5 years ago because of that political climate... also on a trip to visit friends in TX they introduced me to this fine young lady who is now my wife which may or may not have had everything to do with me making immediate plans to move to Texas!

    Welcome friend. You will love the G19. Check out GoodtogoAmmo for some good quality reasonably priced ammo and get some range time with it! The Grabagun storefront in Coppel had some recently as well.
