make sure you bend at the knees to pick stuff up and when you go to sit down in a booth at a restaurant, make sure you sit slowly, otherwise that gun will make a thump that any gun wise cop or robber will key in on.

I actually believe it or not have been conceal carrying my XD .45ACP with a 5" barrel for the past two years. Cool or cold weather I use a shoulder rig, and cold weather I use a paddle holster on the small of my back with a long t-shirt to cover it.So far I have not had any comments on it or been escorted out of any stores.

I've tried that. I've never been able to figure out how to access it quickly without it snagging unless I use both hands, but then you're open for attack with no hands to defend with. I do like it if I have an open concealing garment like a 3/4 coat or similar.

They claim the 3.8 is more concealable, but how does a shorter barrel with the same big ass grip gonna conceal better? I know they're big thing with the XDM is Capacity, but they should have given some up for a carry piece. A grip about the Glock 19 or the XD Sub-Compact would have been a better choice.

Hey Greg,

When you originally save these pics use the "save as" and save as jpegs. Yes you can convert after you have saved. Try that and let me know.
Even though I am signed on, I am not always here. I read e-mails and as you do I love to peruse old picture sites. I bounce in & out.
Hope all is well up North. Sun shining, cloudless skies down here...

is specifically and they are small 400X30 pixels. Even if converted I don't think they would show much. People sometimes do this to keep us from copying them.
