    New site member from Virginia.

    Hello from the shores of the Potomac River. I live way downriver from the DC Beltway and all the hoohaw that happens up there...thank God.

    I own a very sweet Springfield Armory XD-40, Service size. I'm in the process of getting my Virginia CHP. Yeah, I know my XD won't "conceal" well...heheh. I'll be looking for something smaller for more comfortable concealed carry -- someday soon -- but I thought I'd proceed with the permit now.

    I practice shooting with my daughter and son-in-law (who's in law enforcement) at a rural range. Good times. Highly recommend the Springfield...good, solid quality and it shoots a good round. However, I'll search the forums here for recommendations on a concealed carry weapon.

    My user name is the Italian for "little poor man." Ain't it the truth.

    I bid you peace.

    Welcome to the forum. You will receive so many suggestions for really good smaller carry guns that your head will spin. Personally hubby and I really like our "baby Glocks". We each have our own caliber preferences.
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! Anything can be concealed so don't give up on the XDM. I can successfully conceal a full size M&P40 in the summer with just a T shirt. A good holster & a good belt makes it easier & so does carrying my M&P40 Compact but with a little work it can be done. It also helps that WI is an open carry state where printing is no big deal but I have yet to knowingly print. My next step is an IWB holster.

    Welcome from the Richmond area.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
