You sure you're ahead? :mrgreen:

Like the bomb squad guy's t-shirt: "If you see me running, try to keep up!" Or something like that....

Bob:

An official "Welcome Aboard"!

There's a sticky referenced in the "Forum Rules" masthead on the top of this page, but it's not mandatory. Might be a quiz, though :D....

Enjoy!

Jacky:

Welcome aboard!

Please see my note just above to Bob for the boilerplate welcome :D.

Don't be afraid to ask questions, or comment on any topic. Everybody was a beginner once, and it's fun to share knowledge, too. I'm no expert, but know more about the insides of a KelTec P3-AT than anybody should :D.... (It's feeling much better now....)

Regards,

Stu

Thank you for the warm welcome. I'm filled with confidence now after getting your encouragement to participate in the discussion. BuckeyeFirearms seems to have very active members who are having interesting and informative topics. Thanks for having me here.

I'm a Deputy Sheriff for over 20 years and collect a few guns. My son is a gunsmith, so he helps me out when I get in over my head.

Get your son to join, too :D.... We can always use another gunsmith. Anybody would be better than me.

I'm mostly retired, but was a rent-a-cop since the late 60's, among other things. Made for some craziness when the kid had to appear in Juvenile Court for being somewhat lead-footed. I talked to the Deputies watching the door, and swapped some war stories - I went to College with the then-Sheriff, and knew him when he was with the local PD. She didn't like me fraternizing with the enemy :D....

Regards,

Stu

Hello, folks. My name is John B and I'm an Ohio native and currently local to Columbus. I'm in my early 40's. I signed up on this forum about 2.5 years ago, but have only lurked from time to time.

I'm a recreational shooter and am NOT a high-speed black-ops tactical operator, just a regular joe in the neighborhood.

I've had my carry permit for about 1.5 years and so does my wife (a gun-hating socialist when I started dating her, now a gun-toting conservative). Neither of us carries regularly, probably because we just don't have the right holsters and don't want to be overly inconvenienced (I carry a full-sized weapon). But I do carry when I'm going to be on the other side of the tracks, so to speak.

I've only had one incident where I was going to have to pull my weapon, and that was when three massive pit bulls were sprinting at me, full speed with their ears back. I had my hand on my weapon as they reached me, which I think gave me a boost of irrational confidence, so I didn't pull it out. I stood my ground and I'm not sure if they were just posturing or if my lack of emotional response communicated something to them, but they just circled me, barking and snarling until their owner was finally able to get them under control.

I think if I hadn't been carrying, I would have panicked, and that fear would have fed the dogs' desire to attack, so I'm grateful that I was carrying that day.

At any rate, I'm looking for workable IWB holsters if anyone has one they'd like to recommend or sell.

Do a search of this site. There are lots of good IWB choices out there. I highly recommend using models which don't collapse when the gun is removed. Re-holstering should not be a struggle or else you'll find practice of drawing very tedious.

Personally I prefer rigs with snap over belt loops versus clips of any kind, they can fatigue and/or break too easily for me. I also like being able to don or shed the holster without undoing my belt.

"I have decided not to vote, speak in public, assemble in groups or petition my government either directly or by writing to the newspapers.

Some ignorant person may become alarmed, and we can't have that.''

I used to like and recommend the Crossbreed Supertuck, but recently switched to a Hidden Hybrid Holster. It is a leather/kydex hybrid, and has several features that the Crossbreed lacks. Ohio company (Canton area), and they locally source their materials too.

Just remember, one mans love for a holster is another mans horror of a holster.

I don't know your size and/or weight, but you may carrying too big of gun.

You need to carry something comfortable. That includes gun and holster.

Howdy, I am currently stuck at work for another few hours securely squirreled in the basement ofa lab away from the crowds currently converging on Buckeye Stadium just across the street. I may have made a fatal mistake as I wore my Alabama hat today not remember it was yet ANOTHER home game.

Have been looking to tap into the local shooting community and it seems like this forum was a good place to start. Interested in Cowboy Action, 3-Gun, and long(ish) range rifle. Who am I kidding, I'm interested in it all. Currently making my lair somewhere aroundish Dublin.

To any who read or reply, g'day!
