    New PA carrier

    I recently received my CCP for the state of Pennsylvania after a long few years. I have been stationed at Camp Lejeune, NC for a long time and FINALLY got time to go get my permit.

    I carry a full frame Springfield XDm chambered in .40S&W in a BLACKHAWK leather inside the belt holster. Everything seems to be going smoothly so far, but I REALLY need to start practicing with the holster. I was using the holster provided with the pistol from Springfield, but in these hot summer months I cant come close to proper concealment with that. Anyone have any good pointers for me on where to shoot or some good drills to run? I can think of a lot of drills, but want to know if someone has something for concealed carry in particular.

    Welcome from Big Sky Country.


    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.
