in a year and some change ill be getting my permit to carry. permit to carry is different than a conceal and carry license because you dont have to have it concealed in minnesota.
so that leaves me a variety of options of handguns to choose from. not just those lil pea shooters that are smaller than your hand.
thats a springfield XD .45 caliber pistol, with a 4 inch barrel. its total length is only 7.3 inches!
and my holster(or something like it):http://www.xdpistols.com/item/66059_Spring...500PH1_Pad.aspx
i know its big and kind of overkill for personal defense, but im a big guy with big hands. i cant hold those small guns well, and this gun fits my hand like a glove(gander mountain has one ive played with)
so yea, thats my 21st birthday gift to myself.
and yes, i do believe carrying rights will reduce crime. ive had people attempt to mug me twice. people will think before they try and hold me up when i got a cocked and locked 45 strapped to my side.
and yes, this thread is rediculous. im just so excited for this gun!
