    Greetings from San Antonio.

    Hello All,
    I'm finding this forum a bit late, I've already spent most of my budget, and made some mistakes. Several weeks ago, I got the itch to upgrade my carry gun, so I went out an traded my Kel-Tech P3-AT and a P-11 for a used Para-Carry C6.45 LDA. Big mistake, it wouldn't function reliably. I messed with it for about three weeks trying to find a solution, trying different loads, different mags, cleaned, lubed, and polished everything looking for burrs and sharp edges, and hoping it would "Break itself In" if I shot it enough. Eventually I concluded the gun would need modification by a gunsmith if it was ever going to function correctly, Para's service department was no help, and I didn't want to throw good money after bad, so rather than go that rout, I put it on consignment at a gunshop, sold a couple high-end folding knives that had become drawer queens, went out and bought a new Kimber Tactical Ultra II, and it's working much better for me. It has about 500rnds through it now, without a hiccup. Next, I needed a good IWB holster. Shopped around a little online, and ended up ordering a Sparks SSII for my 5" Goldcup, and a Rosen Slimline Workman for my Kimber Tac-Ultra. Now begins the long wait for the custom leather.

    Greetings 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.

    Rudyard Kipling
