    Hello, South Texas here,

    Good luck on my behalf to have found this site, wish I had found it about 3 years ago before I got my CHL, (ccw in other states) basically just trolling for info and trends as I have unfortunately learned most of the things I should know from "hard luck" or experience, none the less, Im here with an open mind to see others views and experiences, and maybe later to share my own experiences, currently carry a variety of handguns, including p3at, bersa uc45, P-11 (very rarely now) xd 45. My wife has upgraded from her p3at to an xd9 compact,, I will tell anyone who asks why I changed to the bersa .45, and why I still sometimes carry the p-11, and why I would also not recommend it to a new shooter. I would still rather have a p-11 than nothing, and thats exactly why I sometimes still carry it.

    Thanks for having me in your community.

    A bit difficult to conceal a 1911 from my area, I carry a bersa ultra compact 45, also own a springfield xd 45, 4" non compact, but dont "carry it" its a backup.
