First of all I love this site. Great source of information and stories from the members.
I recently retired after doing 22 years active duty Navy. I have always been around guns but usually they were issued to me. I worked in the SPECWAR community so had plenty of range time and familiar with the Colt 45 M1911 from back when I first joined the Navy, SIG SAUER's and M-4 but that is about it. I actually own a Sig 226 and Colt 45 M1911 because I knew from experience they were great guns.
I now have my conceal carry permit and that is all new to me. I registered with this site to learn more about what to look for in a good conceal carry pistol... besides the obvious size issue.
