    If I make it, tomorrow

    Winter changover

    I carry the same "gear" year round. I do tend to use an OWB holster more in winter as I typically have on a heavy shirt/sweatshirt/jacket or coat to conceal.

    TLR light

    I just purchased the TLR -1 HL for my XD .45 compact. The 1000 lumens and momentary on switches were the deciding factors for me. To be fair...this is my home gun and not my EDC. If I were to carry it everyday, I likely would have opted for something a bit smaller.

    Looking For an Ankle Holster
