    now I don't necessarily agree with everything all the videos above,
    and below may present as good ideas
    but having you look at all the videos may help you decide on how and what too carry.
    think how stupid and foolish you'll feel if you had your concealed carry handgun snatched out of your holster,
    or got into a situation where you had to use your pistol and could not get it in play reasonably quickly,
    a great deal of both depends on remaining fully aware of whats going on around you,
    at all times and using common sense,

    rules you need to adhere too,
    (1) if you don,t carry all the time chances are you won,t have it if you need it!
    (2) you better have practiced and be competent, in any weapons use, you carry.
    (3) be aware of your surroundings and trust no one you don,t know REALLY WELL.
    (4) try to stay out of higher risk situations and areas
    (5) try hard to NOT get into any confrontation, if confronted,
    apologize even if its totally not your problem or fault.
    (6) once you pull a gun your almost always going to need expensive lawyers,
    even if your totally justified.
    (7)
    a great deal of your health and financial welfare,
    depends on remaining fully aware of whats going on around you,
    at all times and using common sense,

    I read several of these threads almost monthly,
    you may have made an great choice!
    each of us obviously will have vastly different life experiences and priority's,
    and this has nothing to do with your particular choice being good or bad,
    I just hope most guys think through their options and practice regularly.
    my B-I-L had carried his pistol for three years and only because of my verbal prodding did he fire it the first time!
    Like my B-I-L, I see a lot of guys who are much more concerned with the size and weight and easy of concealment,
    than in a carry pistols accuracy and potential assailant stopping potential,
    or put a bit differently if you had access to any pistol you could afford to own,
    and you were forced to defend yourself and family, would the pistol you would select, be the same one you carry concealed?
    Id just suggest anyone who carries concealed think over the choice they make carefully,
    chances are very good you'll never have to bet your life on the pistol you carry's effectively stopping some mugger or psychopath ,
    but if your ever in that confrontation, would you by choice want to have that pistol as your only defensive tool over some other option.
    obviously theres always a compromise, you will need to think through,
    in cartridge power, magazine capacity,dependability,durability,
    accuracy and ease of use. and the last thing you ever want to see is,
    a situation where you fired and hit the threat,
    or fired the weapon until its empty
    without stopping the assailant(s)
    example my B-I-L selected a pocket 380 double action only pistol, due to its small size and light weight,
    at the local indoor range
    where hes not under stress, he has difficulty consistently hitting a full size silhouette,s vitals, rapid fire at 5 yards
    yet he still thinks its the ideal carry pistol.I just shake my head, and can,t grasp the reasoning.
