Hi all!! Yep, just proud to be here!! I have been learning from all of you here for a little while, so I decided to go ahead and join, and continue to listen and learn.
It did take me a while to get my CCL, as I had my prints rejected twice, once by the State of Texas. and then by the FBI. But, after about 4 1/2 months, I did finally get that sucker!
Carrying will be a completely new thing for me, and I am looking forward to reaching that point soon, not to be a "big boy", but to know I have Constitutionally allowed protection instantly available, if, and only if, I need it.
I do already have the pistol I plan to carry, and that is a Sig P229R .40cal/.357sig. - note the Avatar I believe that fits the description of what someone here says - - "it is a big gun when you carry it, and it is a big gun when you take it out"!
I don't have a holster yet. I do plan to carry IWB, and after a lot of looking here, and after listening to a lot of holster reviews and comments, I have decided on the Comp-Tac MTAC holster. I like the looks of it, I like the adjustable features for cant and retention, and I like the fact the Kydex extends to cover the barrel completely. I ordered the MTAC yesterday, with an eight day projected completion!!
I am glad to be a part of this group, and I am looking forward to meeting each of you as these great discussions continue on the forum!
Welcome fellow Texan!
Welcome to it!
And as far as the holsters go....you will soon have a drawer full of them.
