Great info.
Thanks.
Looks like I've got some orders to place. Mags, Holsters, & some decent SD ammo. Very limited selection for all of it here locally.

Get the horsehide.
Well, you were correct. It showed up today, it's nicely made and very comfortable. Thanks.

Well, that would have to be on year 45!

Or maybe year 38 would be Super...

Nothing says I love you, and trust you, like a new gun on your anniversary. That gift says a lot about you, too. For a wife to arm her statistically most likely attacker, you must be one heck of a husband. Happy belated anniversary to both of you.

I have become a big Tommy Theis holster fan.

You will enjoy this holster and in short-order, it will become an intricate part of your EDC.

New CCW permit holders are often observed fussing with their carry rig to a fault. What I have found myself doing with the Theis holster is to catch myself checking if I put it on that day. It's that good!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

She's armed too.

Thanks.

I'd previously asked her for suggestions as to what sort of anniversary gift she might like (She has recently taken a liking to my Ruger MK3.) She tells me, "oh don't worry about it, we just went to Hawaii." So I sent flowers.
So what does she get me?
A Dan Wesson CCO. Holy Crap! She sandbagged me!
I'm happier than a pig in poo. I hope to get it to the range this afternoon after work. I'll try to come up with some sort of range report ASAP.
Anyone got any suggestions for a good IWB holster? (RH, 1530-1600 position)
Looks like you got two(2) keepers there.
Lucky guy.
