About SD Carry

As a young boy in Texas, I grew up with guns. They were basic tools, much like my grandfather's mitre box or pipe wrench, there to perform specific tasks when called upon. I was taught gun safety by virtually every male adult in my family. I spent eight years in the US Navy operating and maintaing various guns from .30 caliber to 5" rifles.

After a few years as a moderator on a popular gun forum, I learned that there is much disinformation, prejudice and plain ignorance about guns posted constantly on the internet.

This blog is dedicated to sharing worthwhile information about the increasing acceptance and practice of legal concealed carry in our country. There is much mis-information and wild opinion about this topic among its practitioners and the public in general. The moral, social and legal responsibilities of concealed carry are immense and must be understood and practiced by all who legally carry a gun.

There is also a vast amount of practical and useful information about carrying and the weapons themselves and I hope to be able to share some of that here. Your comments are welcome, but will be moderated by me before appearing on this blog.

Stay safe.

Old Faithful Holster - LCP Update

I noticed that the LCP and LC9 holsters share the same leather backing, the only difference in the holsters being the size of the kydex part. I am testing this holster in the cross draw position for use while sitting - in the car, for example - and for general use. I think the cross draw carry position has suffered from rumor and bad press.

So, today, I trimmed 1" off the bottom portion of the leather backing and smoothed the edges with sandpaper. Since it does not now protrude so far down, sitting is much more comfortable with this modified backing. I was tempted to move the rear clip in toward the kydex as well, but will leave it where it is while I break in this new modification.

The clips on these holsters are so strong that I have taken to wearing them clipped to the pants, and under the belt. The holster is still very secure and the black belt hides the clips. I suggest this arrangement if you intend to wear a shirt tucked over this holster. It would virtually disappear like that.
