  1. Have a great holiday season at the secret hidden bunker. Many thanks for another informative year of the podcast. I have actually been rethinking my carry gun and system.
    I actually lost40 lbs or so since April, and now IWB at 3 o’clock is doable. I was carrying OWB in the same position.
    And I also am carrying my S & W 3913. I just like the way I can shoot it better than my other gun. And while I still get the itch for the 1911 9mm Stingray, I am on a fixed income and don’t want to sell any of my guns to be able to afford that one.
    Again Happy Holidays and safe travels.

  2. Hey Michael,

    Thanks for a great podcast! Since discovering you I haven’t missed a one. Here’s to a successful and prosperous new year for you and yours.

    I too have replaced my folding knives with small fixed blades: 3-1/2” or less, since that’s the CO limit for concealed knives.

    The good news: I too have lost around 40 lbs. The bad news: it happened in conjunction with a stroke in my right basal ganglia.

    My question regarding surreptitious draw: I really like front crossdraw (10-to-11-o’clock). My arm is going across my body to draw, so my elbow isn’t ‘telegraphing’ out.

    Any thoughts?
