Hi guys. Somehow found you guys from glocktalk.com Seems like a great webpage and hopefully I'll be able to contribute and most importantly learn!
I'm 26 years old and live in Omaha, Nebraska (which just became a CCW state this year) with my wife and 2 month old son. I'm a state licensed plain clothes investigator (private investigator) and work for an agency that does a lot of insurance fraud, child custody, and cheating spouses investigations. From time to time, especially in insurance fraud cases, we end up in some not-so-nice parts of town. My boss and I have been kind of lazy about getting our CCW license because until this past week we've never had a run in - isn't that always the case? You never need it...until the day you do.
Anyway, I had a couple of morons try to car jack me while on my way to do some surveillance. Thankfully I was able to get away, but it certainly lit a fire under my butt to get my CCW permit process started. I ordered (and got yesterday) a new comp-tac MTAC IWB holster for my Glock G26, which is what I plan on carrying. I also own a Springfield XD .40 that I love to shoot, but just doesn't conceal very well on my skinny frame.
Hope to get to know you guys well and look forward to the learning experience!

Welcome from Montana.
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.

Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.
Welcome from NE Florida. Sounds like you have a potentially very dangerous job, so be careful out there.
