    I don't even own a gun yet

    Katrina really open my eyes. I have never witness civil unrest like that. Since then I have done all that I can to help prepare my family for any crisis that would effect my area. Part of my preparedness goals is owning a gun. My wife however was never open to it. I began to do my own research on everything guns to see if her fears were correct. I have read many statistics and still none have wavered my belief that a gun is a great self defense tool. Why am I on a conceal and carry site? good question. My wife finally came around and authorize a purchase of one gun. So now I need one gun that will help me when all hell breaks loose, home protection, and personal protection. After years of research and months of renting guns, I have narrowed my selection to the springfield armory line. I am looking at the xdsubcompact, xd 9, and the 1911 emp. I am now on this forum to research the best way to conceal and carry. Thank you for your time.

    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.

    The XD9 is very concealable and with 16+1 capacity with a decent SD load should fit the bill

    Agreed. My main carry pistols are my XD-45, XD-40, and a Glock 19. The XD is a great pistol because it has great ergonomics, reliable, accurate, and the trigger pull is good also.
