    5 or 5:30 the paddle doesn't fit right. My Galco Royal Guard should be here tomorrow.

    Nice!

    I've got a Galco Concealable. That seems to be the one spot on my body that it wants to fit just right. It pulls in tight and I hardly notice the gun is there when I'm wearing it. It took a lot of experimenting with a lot of holsters before I found the one that fit me the best and still allowed me to access the gun easily.

    I was running around a corner to grab the dog at my grandparents house, and the rear sights took a chunk out of the drywall on the corner of the wall. Felt really bad, had to check the sights afterwards too.

    Eric good thing you were carrying a Glock if it had been a 1911 you would have caused major damage to the car.

    You're probably right. I do have a colt 1991 A1.

    I haven't,but I don't move very fast due to an injury and so I'm careful when I'm moving around obstacles,one good impact can knock me off balance on my butt

    But yeah, I think I'd leave the gun part out and just say I was clumsy and walked into your mirror. :)

    I carry IWB, most times. have never had a problem hitting anything, might wanna look at your holster n belt, i know mine stays tucked right where it is supposed to be , even in the owb holster i sometimes use...which conceals with a tee shirt, i do not openly carry unless out on the farm.

    Wait until some little brat is running all over the place, not paying attention to where they're going, and the little bratty turd manages to do a face plant into your gun and holster. Then have the parents ask if there is any damage to the smart phone on your hip. "Why no, my "smart phone" is just fine, how's juniors face?"

    I did this a few times when I first started carrying. Like someone else said, once you carry long enough, it kind of becomes an extension of your own body. I can't remember the last time I wacked something with my gun.

    I carry my gun IWB but my mag carrier OWB and fairly commonly bang it in to stuff. Most often it's my car door frame as I am getting in.

    My extra mag carrier hits my door jam every time.

    I got tagged by a shopping cart yesterday. They looked very surprised!

    Since this seems to be an issue with some maybe I could develop some hip feelers "like curb feelers for cars". Just hook em on your belt!! Dont laugh, if someone can sell a "pet rock" I could sell these!!
    The 1911 is an antiquated weapons system but then again, so am I.
