"And in a Serpa holster."
I am guilty of this. Or the idea of this.
I admit it.
I am NEW Jovian Thunderbolt, or was, and when casting about with the idea eventually getting CCW when I started this blog almost 10 years ago, and just then getting into more than cursory plinking.
It was a totally rational and sober selection process. And it arrived at that.
I tried the other plastic pistols, and I didn't like the feel of the M&P trigger and shot the Glock poorly in comparison to XDs.
I was convinced about the big bullet thanks to research online and Jeff Cooper, but I wanted to slim it down some. The caliber still started with a 4.
And the medium size gun instead of full size because CCW. When not carrying concealed I wanted a retention holster and BLACKHAWK! was new and offered that nice retention button.
Well, that was many years before now, and my thinking has changed and my decision then has become a joke. My consolation is I never did buy that XD for myself, and carry it. I still recommended it to others, then.
What do I prefer now? J Frame snubbie in a pocket holster is what I DO. It's been 10 years and it still isn't practical to CCW in Maryland. But say I lived and worked as a Linotype Machinist in Mentor Ohio instead? The 1911s I customized in IWB holsters. Or a Safariland lvl III at 9 o'clock. But I don't have all the answers! 10 years in and I am still learning, still improving, and nowhere near as close to where I want to be, skillwise. I don't NEED new and different equipment. I need new and different me. Working on that, still.
