    Hello from Oklahoma

    I've been lurking here for a few days and thought I'd introduce myself.

    I'm brand new to concealed carry. And to handguns, for that matter.

    I've been thinking about it for awhile. I have a couple of good friends who are avid concealed carry advocates. But a couple of weeks ago, my mom told me that she wanted to take a concealed carry class and asked me if I wanted to take it with her.

    I've done a lot of reading and research in the past couple of weeks, and a lot of talking to my gun and carry knowledgeable friends. My dad took me on Saturday to buy my first gun. I got an XDm-9... probably a little big for carrying, but it feels great in my hand. And being new to guns, I want to be very comfortable with it before I carry.

    I've ordered an IWB holster for it, but have been wearing it around the house with the OWB hip holster that came with it just to get used to having it on my body.

    I'm looking forward to getting to know you guys, and to learning lots more from you. And this forum has some truly awesome smilies!!

    Welcome to the forum. Glad to see you are making a family thing out of shooting.
