I have something similar to this (not the same model) but I have it "bolted" to the right of my steering column. I keep my gun there when driving and when I get out it goes in my concealed holster. There is a lot of products out there to carry your gun in your car. I have even seen one that is a holster that attaches to your steering column. Google it, you will be surprised!. http://www.nrastore.com/nrastore/Pro...=SA+24385&ct=e

I use a level 3 Serpa at work and use the one Shots pictured for CC. Full size Glock 17. The serpa action is very stong and has excellent retention, but is easy for the shooter to defeat when drawing the weapon. It is also comfortable when wearing for extended periods of time, both sitting or standing. And for the average cost (about $40ish) you can't go wrong.

Ive used both the crossbreed and mtac, I found the crossbreed concealed a little better the mtac was more comfy. Carried 4.25" 1911, 5" 1911, springfield xd40sc in them

I only carry the 13 rnd mag, never tried the 19 rnd. Didn't like the extra weight, didn't think it would carry well.

BUT, I received a crossbreed belt for Christmas, can't wait to try it!

While we have everyone in here, what are your thoughts on caliber. If allowed/able to carry whatever you wanted (I know some officers carry the same caliber as thier duty weapon) what would that caliber be?

I might start to carry if MD gets around to allowing it legally, and so decided, as I usually to to do some research ahead of time. I seem to be leaning towards a .45, I know you get fewer rounds but I think that might be an acceptable tradeoff.

From my experience, the choice of weapon matters more than the caliber. You want a pistol that is completely reliable, comfortable to shoot, reasonably accurate out to 30 yards or so and you can get a good, comfortable holster for.

It's better to be able to hit a paper plate at 20 yards 100% of the time with a .22, than to have 40% hits at 10 yards with a .45.

That said, I recommend a .380 auto or .38 special at a minimum. I do NOT like the .25 auto, it does not have a good track record of performance.

Modern hollow point ammo in all calibers is pretty darn good these days!

Caliber size is overrated, at least that is what my wife says with a giggle.
A hit with a 22 is better than a miss with a 45. But along those same lines as already stated .380 should be minimum. Try to stay away from .40 unless you have shot a lot, the kick induces a snatch when the trigger is pulled.

Mine isn't the compact, wish it was!
