I just sent in my paperwork to the state and will hopefully have it back by the 1st of Aug. Currently I have a 12g shotgun and a SW .357 for home protection, but nothing I would want to carry daily.
So far I am enjoying just reading some of the issues that concern people who are packing. I will hopefully make some informed decisions when it comes time to make a choice at the gun store.

Welcome from Michigan!
Not sure how fast the paperwork runs down there, but Summer's coming. I'd go with something small and easily concealable probably... maybe a Kahr PM-9.
To be honest, if I were down there, I'd love a good auto knife as a backup, just because you can. A Micro Tech Halo III for example, not even legal for me to own up here, let alone carry.....

A Big Texas Howdy from Dallas, welcome to the forum. Althought I dont have one, if I were only burying one handgun to carry ... I would seriously consider one of the XD's.
