My first firearm and CC/EDC was an M&P 1.0 9mm compact. I also have the 1.0 full size and Shield in 9mm. All three have been flawless in my limited experience. All three have the Apex DCAEK triggers and night sights. I haven’t handled any of the 2.0 series, but I don’t think you can go wrong.September 27, 2018 at 7:22 pm #63150August 19, 2018 at 11:15 am #61567

Cool, and easy attach then? Is that a cat, or a tactical witch?
Easy. It’s just a cat AFAIK, but then again IDKWIDK.March 19, 2018 at 8:21 pm #57044

After perusing the Kindle version I got the hard copy today. It’s thicker than I thought it would be. I appreciate the glossary at the back to recall all the abbreviations. Definitely an inspiration to get my shit together and sign up for a class.
I know you are being helpful, and it is most likely true, but my intent when writing the manual was not just something for civilians to use, but something that was equally applicable to military or any type of special ops or paramilitary team. If it is easier to understand for civilians, then I hope it is easier to understand for military – but my point being, this is not dumbed-down in any way for the civilian market, these are deadly serious real world drills described.
I just submitted a review before seeing this post. I mentioned the manual being geared toward civilians. Once my review went live I did a quick edit to add that it is also applicable for military personnel. Hope this helps, and thank you for your hard work.March 15, 2018 at 7:55 pm #56881
I was able to purchase the book for 29.95 at 1000 Central time. My invoice says Sold by: Amazon.com Services, Inc. I hope my money goes to the right place. I got a followup email from Amazon saying the estimated delivery date is March 21st, fwiw. Got the Kindle version too.September 13, 2017 at 7:46 pm #50761
Yikes! Thank goodness the baby is ok, hopefully the wife’s CT scan will come back AOK.June 21, 2017 at 6:36 pm #45769
Thanks for confessing. I’ve been looking to upgrade my 5 year old belly band and this is very timely. I already have three Crossbreed modular holsters for my M&Ps I use for the bedside, or in a couple packs that have dedicated CCW pockets. I had no idea they had a belly band that incorporated that holster. Why didn’t I think of that?
If you must Mexican carry, at least use a Raven Concealment VanGuard 1 or 2.May 9, 2017 at 9:43 pm #44447
Damn, and after all the hype? I was looking forward to the MVT light battle belt.January 1, 2017 at 12:13 pm #39142
I live in Texas and have conceal carried everyday without fail for the past 5-6 years. Texas is one of the states that allows you to store your handgun in your vehicle in your employers parking lot. I’ve worked as a CNC machinist since the late 90s. My current and previous employer have a general no weapons policy in their employee handbooks, including statements involving the parking lot. At my previous job the parking lot was right of the Interstate and was easily accessed by the public. At that place I secured my CCW in a lockbox tethered under the passenger seat during my shift. My current job is in an industrial area a few blocks from main thoroughfares, and has a security gate. The gate can be opened with your employee badge, or it can be buzzed open from the shipping or reception desk. It’s a relatively small machine shop with about 8 office staff, 6 support staff, 12 machinists, and a small rubber/mold shop. At this place I stow my CCW in my center console instead of locking it up.
My typical EDC handgun is an MP Shield 9mm with two spare mags on my belt. Starting a few months before the recent election, I started toting and EDC bag with a FS MP 9mm and 4 spare mags, along with an IWB and OWB holster for it, in case I got into a situation where I had to leave my vehicle in a sketchy situation. I left this bag in the trunk of my car at work for the first couple weeks but started bringing it inside with me and stowing it in the desk drawer at my work station. I’m not really concerned about being busted, if anything I have a little peace of mind that if some crazy shit went down I wouldn’t have to access my car to arm myself. Of course if some crazy shit went down when I was taking a dump I might be SOL, but I’ve gone through that scenario mentally and have a makeshi(f)t plan.
Speaking of being mentally prepared, with or without access to a firearm, always be aware of concealment vs cover and means of escape in your work environment. Not that I have to tell any of y’all that.January 1, 2017 at 10:33 am #39136
Thanks! I’ve been eyeing the SOR but I couldn’t pass up this deal.

I can’t find the option to add a profile pic on my account page. Maybe because I’ve never posted? I’ve lurked for some time before the forum went paid, but haven’t been to any classes yet. Am I missing something or is a profile photo only for alumni?
