Ditto.

My XDm45 is my truck tag-along for the same reasons. Usually carry a 9mm of some sort on my person as well, but it's good to know that XDm isn't too far away.

It's too big for many other practical uses. Having 14rds of 45acp before a reload is necessary is comforting...especially with that sudden zombie outbreak constantly looming.

Go with a quality polymer gun (XD, Glock, S&W, FNP, etc) for the car. They generally stand up to punishment and function afterward. I'm sure many metal framed guns would do fine too...but I like mine a little too much to subject them to that kind of abuse/exposure/neglect. I have little senitimental attachment to my cookie-cutter polymer shooters, however. I'm perfectly willing to work 'em like a mule.

Kind of what I was thinking. My Ruger LC9 should meet the measure.

The lubes you use should have a "low temperature" recommendation. I've read info concerning this for folks that live in Alaska & spend a lot of time outdoors in sub-zero weather & they wear their firearms outside of their clothes, so there are lubes available for extreme conditions.

Yup, gotta love it. I'm still just car carrying, no permit. Usually the XD45 and a spare mag in a cheapo nylon holster. I usually bring it in at night, but have forgotten.

I have a print of every gun law for the state that I feel is relevant. The vehicle carry is a huge one IMO. School zone and educational property is a good one to keep on the car too.

I still haven't heard how it is to work out on college campuses with the new "enhanced permit" in MS; i suppose it will be clarified at some point.

another thing to also consider is the right of a business to restrict carry into their business and property.

I haven't heard anything about it either. I can't see them letting me pack while sitting in philosophy class though. May be allowed to leave it in the truck though. One small step back in the right direction. I hear it said quite often that no class 3 permit holder has ever been convicted of a crime involving a class 3 firearm, I'd like to know how many firearm crimes have been committed on campus by cc permit holders. Especially in relation to how many could have been prevented on campus by permit holders. Incidentally, I know 2 people off the top of my head who I know for a fact that they carry even in the classroom. I make sure I sit next to both of them.
