I wouldn't have changed the gun I would have carried it still just guard that spot when in a crowd

Where I was, it would not have been good to have someone bump their elbow into the larger pistol. In a building full of higher ed types, and in a place where the legality of carrying might have been an issue, I chose safe, rather than have my daughter see her dad carted off in cuffs on grad night.

That would have spoiled the mood.

Congrats to you and especially your daughter, you must be very proud.

I carry my XD40 most times IWB and then often transfer it to the holster in the enclosed photo. Most times it really doesn't bother me at all keeping it concealed on my person unless I'm driving for a few hours.
This is right above my knee and easily accessible if needed.

Carrying a gun is supposed to be comforting, not comfortable.

Clint Smith

Seriously, the more important question is "can I get to my weapon while seatbelted in my car?"

For most anyone carrying strong side that answer is NO.

This why my second gun comes out from the small of my back and into a seat holster that easily hidden under a baseball cap.

Tack

Tack u r right but I'm not talking about it being carried on me I'm talking in comfort of holding on my hand and knowing that I can use it when needed as far as carrying I will always give up comfort for comforting to know I can defend myself I'm just trying to find out if I should go 1911 or 92 and I was wondering about chains 1911 and his insight on it
