How refreshing it is to discover an on-topic, non-berating, no ALL-CAPS forum that could serve as my source for the accompanyment of like-minded persons that harbor the desire, need, and responsibility to carry, present, and utilize a concealed firearm. I am impressed with the lack of insignificant arguing that is so common on other forums, be it the credit of the members or the administrators of combatcarry.com. I welcome the advice and expertise of the varied members, and hope to eventually contribute usefull information myself. BTW, though I have several firearms, I am considering the Springfield XD-40 (in two-tone) as my ccw of choice and would consider the input of any member. It is slightly larger than the G36 , but is much more comfortable in my hand. I plan to carry in a holster between the hip and the small-of-back, as is most feasable and concealable given my dress and location. Comments?
