    A Great Big Texas Howdy

    I'm a retired soldier with a renewed interest in shooting and carrying for self defense. I own an old M1911 Colt US Army .45 manufactured in 1913, a Ruger Mark III .22, and new S&W M&P Shield .40, SIG Sauer 1911 .45, and SIG Sauer 1911-22.

    I'm trying to find the right carry weapon while I await the state's processing of my CHL application. I'm not liking the shot groups I get with the shield so I'm thinking about going with a 1911 .45 in a commander style. I look forward to learning from y'all.

    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.
