    Hi to Everybody from Noblesville, Indiana

    Hello to all! I an old goat retiree, been shootin' and carryin' for a long time. Like many others I am still on the hunt for the "perfect" weapon and the "perfect" carry method. And like many others, I have a box full of holsters that I've tried and which have not worked out. Pretty much, you name it and I've tried it. I'm kinda pear-shaped and I keep my trousers up with suspenders. I have proper gun belts but my wife says it looks funny to wear suspenders AND a belt. (Yeah, I know. I should just ignore that, but...) Right now the best one seems to be the belly band. It's great for concealment but not so good when you try to actually get your weapon out. The ones that ride way down in front (like ThunderWear) just don't work out for me. And of course with no belt, IWB holsters with belt clips don't work, plus they tend to pull my trousers down. Right now my most frequently-carried (and I'm kinda embarrassed to admit it) is an NAA .22 mag with a top-mounted little bitty laser sight in a pocket holster. Better than nothing, but not much.

    So that's my intro for now. I look forward to participating, and learning from all you seasoned gunhands!

    Welcome from SC. Plenty of old-goat retirees (I'm just a wanna-be for now) around here.
