Rant on!!!!! Does anyone think before they purchase CCW firearms? First, don't buy the firearm without considering how you are going to carry it and extra rounds. Second, don't buy cheap holsters or magazine carriers. The makers of such just want your money and know that when the crap wears out, you'll be back again. Third, don't have just 1 firearm for CCW. That full sized firearm is kinda hard to conceal when you wear shorts and a t-shirt. Fourth, practice with your setup. And I don't mean stand at the firing line 7 yards from the target and shoot bulls-eye style. Exercise all possibilities. Draw while on laying on your back, draw weak handed, shoot around corners, etc.... Fifth, attend a training course or two. I keep hearing the same stuff. "What do you think of...." If you cannot figure things out for yourself, then get an expert to help you. Not a bunch of nick-named people on the internet or in a forum. Well, my opinion is just that, my opinion, and it may not save your a$$ when you need it. Rant off.
