So the wife and I will be attending our first-ever pistol class this weekend. It’s LMS Defense’s Pistol Clinic, for newbies. We’ve not really shot defensive handguns for a couple of years, as evidenced by our dismal showing at last year’s Gunblogger Rendezvous steel shoot. We have a pair of new Glock 19s, including the wife’s Glock she won at the Rondy (thanks, Glock!) and they’re unfired by us, so this will be their baptism.
Course requirements include a holster and magazine holders. Well, since neither of us are OC folks (and in California, the only lawful OC is unloaded OC — to me, what’s the point?) and we don’t have CCW permits, neither of us had any of that equipment, much less a gun belt.
Off we went to the best gun shop in the Bay Area, where the ever-friendly and patient Scott helped us select some good stiff leather BladeTech gun belts (with plastic inserts for more stiffness, as recommended by Breda — thanks Breda!) and holsters. I’ve got a Blackhawk Serpa holster with the little index-finger latch and and the wife has a no-latch BladeTech holster.
Now I have to round up 500 rounds of 9mm for each of us. I think I have almost that much in the ammo locker….
