As a slight aside to this. In my FJ, I mounted a rubberized magnet on the side of the center console, right next to my leg. When I'm driving, I take my pistol out of the holster, and put it right there. More comfortable, and far faster to get to, if things go south.

I have had a case where I pulled on an assailant (unarmed), and while I surprised myself with how quick I managed it, I don't want to be in that position again. FYI, I did not need to pull the trigger.

I have been CC for years and have used my gun twice to prevent death or harm to myself. The best part is I never had to shoot anyone.
I highly recommend that if you do CC or open carry have insurance with USCCA.
I carry the max insurance and have used many of the member benefits they provide.

If anyone should actually ask what agency that stands for, you just tell them "Historical Scene Investigator"! Solved! LOL!
Wearing LEO looking clothing is more likely to get you shot in Detroit- than keep the bad guys away. Killing cops is a badge of honor among certain criminal elements- and we are talking about Detroit.

Like you Mud, I also used to reload and I shot a ton of bullets in the past. I wasn't a cop that just carried my weapon, I used them.

Got my fingerprints taken today and submitted all my paperwork. Now I just wait to get my CLP in the mail.
How long ago did you retire- you might be covered under LEOSA.

I left the force in 1991. I didn't retire. I left shortly after my parents were killed by a guy on drugs. Not a story I want to divulge actually.

Well I got my CPL in the mail today. Two weeks and 3 days after I applied. Hopefully I will never have to use it.

Congrats! That looks like a nice comfortable carry gun. Are you going to go with in the wasteband, pocket, shoulder?

Waistband. I already have a spring clip for my belt and a pancake holster.

Yeah, its quickly becoming one of my very favorite tools, there is something about the ones you use and carry all the time. Like an old pocket knife, they just tend to become part of you.
