    New Member Miami, Fl.

    Hello everyone, I have been lurking around for the last 2 weeks reading all I can and I have learned so much from all the post. Just applied for the CWL on February 18 and soon will be buying a Glock 19 for everyday carry, still torn on holster selection. I'm seeing more and more news like this Security guard shoots sword-wielding man at Miami supermarket - Little Havana / Flagami - MiamiHerald.com which finally convinced me that I need to carry everyday to protect my family and myself.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! Thanks for posting that. I did that type of work before retirement, the whole time praying I wouldn't have to use my weapon but being retired Army I was ready to do so.

    Good for you! We all need more good guys w/guns! I personally love Crossbreed and Remora holster! And of course, custom leather 👍

    Carry safe!

    Don't neglect good training! Read a cpl books while your waiting. These two are inexpensive if you have a kindle:

    As a former Floridan I welcome you now from AZ


    The key to a good carry esp in a no Open carry state is a good holster a good belt and loser clothing ... That all is the key


    What you need to ask now is do you want leather or kydex or a mix or bother for the hoslter ? And do you want a leather or nylon belt and of course what postion would you fell most comffy carying a gun in ... Needles to say you will more then likly end up with a box full of holster heck even carry guns ..


    But please dont skimp and go cheep on the holster .. Uncle mikes is for the 22 plinker at the range not your carry guns.. You learn that fast ....
