    That is only a danger if you do not safely handle the firearm.

    Yes I agree. I don’t plan on ever having a Plaxico Burress moment.

    Nor do I ever want to be around a guy like this

    Once parked at the gas station, Peck opened the truck‘s rear passenger door and pulled one of the rifles by its sling, Puhala testified. The rifle apparently got caught on something and when Peck pulled harder, the gun fired.
    Peck told Puhala that Lang was standing outside the closed rear driver‘s side door and Peck heard him shout he had been shot in the groin.
    Puhala said the victim already had been transported to UPMC Presbyterian in Pittsburgh when he arrived.
    Fawn Officer Erik Bergstrom testified Lang was leaning against the outside of the gas station‘s convenience store and Peck was helping to apply pressure to the wound when Bergstrom and paramedics arrived shortly after the 911 call.
    Bergstrom said Peck was distraught and covered in blood. Bergstrom indicated Lang‘s wound was believed to be serious and possibly life-threatening.
    “He was shot in the groin,”

    It is not Mr Pecks fault. Clearly if guns where outlawed this gun never would have shot Mr Puhala.

    Exactly, and what was he doing standing there anyway?

    I now am legally able to carry in some 29 states. Thank you PA for being friendly to gun owners! And yes, Texas is one of those states 🙂

    Congrats Phil, I’m happy for you. You carry a Glock don’t you? Have you found a choice of holster? I really like the sport holsters made by glock and they’re really cheap about $15 or so, the only thing is you might had to take a knife and cut a small plastic tab for it to fit a normal size belt but doing so really don’t effect the integrity of it.

    I have several glock holsters. the one I use 90% of the time is the MIC holster from Glocktech.

    I found a holster, I’m trying it out. I’ll take pictures. Glock 17 sure is large to carry. I might carry my wifes Glock 26 till she gets her license. The holster I found is IWB and OWB and holds an additional magazine. So 17+1 and another 17. Hope I never need to use it. I will be carrying everyday and I pray I never need to use it. PA has open carry and there was already one day when I was OWB that I was about half a second from drawing at a charging dog. I’m happy the dog stopped because I didn’t want to put down a dog in the new neighborhood.

    Looking forward to seeing pictures of both your holster choice and your gun. I have a G22 and a G27. Same size as the G17 and G26 but in 40 S&W. I can comfortably carry the G22 IWB with the MIC holster and the G27 I almost forget about with the MIC. It has no provision for addition magazines so I carry those on the other hip in a leather Santis single mag holster.

    I hope you find a carry option you are satisfied with.

    G17 in holster. I’m still debating if I like the holster. Now that I have a license I’ll carry more than just in my yard. I’m still trying to figure out the retaining strap near the handle. The directions where weak.

    I had a similar holster with one of my 1911s in the early 2000s. It was good for opencarry when I would not have a need to have quick access to the gun.

    concealed carry is discrete carry. The bad guy shouldn’t know you have a gun until there’s two inches of flame coming out the barrel.
