    My friend,
    You have endured a MAJOR life changing event, it is perfectly natural to look at ways to feel as much the same as before the event. Your thoughts on defending your person and that of your wife is one that would weigh heavily on the minds of many of us that cannot fathom your experiences this past few months. Your carrying OC, as that is the reality of what your body will allow right now is in my mind a very simple one, put on what you feel satisfies the requirement and simply carry on evolving in your daily life. Good to have you back Al, you were i the thoughts and prayers of a great many folks.

    Thank you buddy. That means a lot coming from you. I appreciate it. Thought I might be making some people upset and not my intention. Just thought it might be interesting to see how folks react and to try out different OWB holsters and guns. My next two will be my Kimber 45 1911 when I can find the leather holster I like.
    Thanks again

    See, that really explains it to me because I came in late to the party here and don't know everyone and their background. Thanks steelfingers for explaining it to me. I apologize for any inconsiderations.

    No need to apologize for anything. You would have kicked my butt at the range but that male ego thing I've got........well I'm a guy and not that bright.
    Please comment as much as you want and say what you want.
    Like the channel name Snattlerake. What does it mean?

    I do remember the 60's and 70's because I didn't do that indulgence stuff. I went the other way.

    That one comment dictates how I think of you and I know from meeting you that you live by that mantra. Give up is not in your wheelhouse.
    Your in for the fight and you will win with that mindset.
    I admire the strength in your journey.
