    Thanks and Howdy from Idaho!

    I was looking for an informative site for concealed carry and it looks like I found it! I spent last night looking at the posts here and had a great time doing so. Thanks!

    I have been a gun "enthusiast" for the last 20 years but made the decision to finally get my CWP after a stabbing and a shooting a block from my home and a general rise in violent crime in my area. I have a wife and two small children and have come to the sad conclusion that we are not as safe as we once were. I applied last month and received my CWP on the tenth of this month.

    Unfortunately I seem to like large handguns, so I have been carrying my smallest, a Glock 22, for the last 17 days. I am 6 foot 1 so I can conceal it okay in a Smartcarry, but other modes of carry make me feel nervous so far. I have a nice new leather OWB slide holster that I will try next.

    Well, just wanted to say hi, I will get back to reading!

    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.

    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
