    holster for an ostimate

    Good luck with your search. Another option is to use your suspenders to support a belt that is a bit more loosely fastened. The stiffer the belt the better if you try this. Something else might be a paddle holster worn without a belt. Not ideal but with your suspenders it might work.

    Ruger LCP

    I've just picked one up. Nice little gun, disappears in a pocket. Not fun to put 100rnds through at one sitting, but it was 100% reliable. I can keep a full mag (6rnds) on a paper plate at 7yds without any difficulty. The only change I made was some yellow paint on the front sight. I'd recommend it.
  3. They want to avoid this going to SCOTUS. This will be as far as this one goes.

    SEPTEMBER 22 Fight At Night!

    I took this class 2 years ago and would HIGHLY recommend it. Its not just about using a gun in low light. There is a wealth of information about self defense in general.

    Disturbing Info about our Vaunted Leader

    I see (not so) random bannings in our future... possibly when that desert is being assembled after the wine tasting.

    I use a large bag of color changing silica gel in my safe, but I do use a Hygrometer for my cigars. You can test it very easily using a salt test. https://m.wikihow.com/Test-a-Hygrometer I'll start the test in the evening and check it in the morning. To be honest I've found little difference in accuracy of hygrometer. Price gets you features, but not more accuracy for anything less than $100. I just note the offset on it with a paint pen and do the math. Almost all are off by 4-5%. YMMV

    Disturbing Info about our Vaunted Leader

    I've slowly been converting my wife as well. She used to think Pink or red meant you would get sick, now she's a solid medium person and associates the color with good flavor and texture. I'm a Medium Rare guy at restaurants I'm not familiar with, in known good places or at home it's rare all the way, no sauce, etc. Salt & Pepper are all that's needed.

    I'm not far from Dayton, and we had severe storms, some gravel washed out on the driveway, but that's about it for us. I haven't been to town though.

    An Educated choice in a first Handgun

    First guns are always a bit emotional it seems. That said there's lots of good advise here. The Jerico is a fine weapon but be aware that you will learn lessons about weight, complexity etc from owning it. You will want another different gun in the near future. There's nothing wrong with that...

    Actually not bad, if you can get a black belt the clip will be less noticeable. The suspenders may make it more noticeable as well by holding the bloused shirt in tight to your back. All of that said I would notice the heavy belt, clip, and you carrying but I know what to look for. Given his past does your coworker know what to look for as well? It's tougher to hide a gun from someone who knows what to look for compared to the average joe who isn't observant.

    Watch white shirts as they can be remarkably transparent. If you're wearing a white undershirt the butt will silhouette badly. Think of a woman wearing a black bra under a white shirt... Patterned shirts will help too if that's acceptable for your work.
  14. This thing leaves the action open to dirt I can't see how in a military application that it won't cause malfunctions. I do see how it helps train a lot of people to use the same motion to load on a variety of guns. It's not for me though...
  15. Sometimes the simplest designs look the best. I'd say these look elegant or distinguished much like a pre 64 Winchester model 70. Very NICE!
