Hi, Just thought I'd relay my experience in changing my carry firearm. I have been carrying my .38 special in a fanny pack (I'm old and no one would guess I'm packing) for about 3 months now. I just got my Velcro holster for my XDcompact and began carrying that. It was really strange to switch from the double action revolver to a cocked and chambered semi automatic. I know safety features of the XD, but the immediacy of the XD ratcheted up my awareness of safety requirements of carrying. I cannot explain the impact of this switch. Two weeks ago I shot both guns and realized that shooting the .38 as a single action had that same immediacy, so I think it's the trigger pull that has such an impact. The rule of "never put your finger on the trigger until you are ready to shoot" has a completely new meaning to me. Also acquiring more training in moving and shooting in different scenarios is a must. Maybe I'm being oversensitive. What do you think?
