    New Member from SE Michigan

    I've been lurking on here for the last couple months and decided it was finally time for my first post. I'm from Southeast Michigan and received my CPL earlier this year.

    Since spending probably a couple hours a day reading posts on this forum for the past couple months, I've learned a lot and would like to thank all the members for the great informative posts. I certainly feel I've come to better understand the practicalities of concealed carry.

    I also would like to share that I added to my stable of carry pistols today. I went into the LGS today and they had just put a Springfield XDS 9mm in the case about 2 hours before. I jumped on the opportunity and walked out with another excellent carry pistol. I'm excited to put it through the paces at the range later this week. I've heard lots of good things about the new XDS.

    The XDS joins my G19, M&P 9c, and Sig 1911 C3. I'm trying to keep in practice with each of them so that I'm comfortable carrying all of them. The G19 is probably my go-to EDC right now since it seems like practically an extension of my arm, but I'm hoping I get to that point with all of them.

    Welcome from Wisconsin, Brian! You have great taste in handguns. I'd take any of the ones you have in a heartbeat. Sometime you'll have to give us your opinions on the pros & cons of each.

    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!
