Hello, everyone. I joined this forum to participate in Texas-specific discussion about concealed carry issues. I found it by way of the Texas3006 app and website used for tracking posted signage. My info:

Age: Mid-40's
Gender: Male
Profession/school status: IT contractor, degrees in IT and CS
Marital status: Married, two sons in middle school
Years CHL: Got my Texas LTC this year, previously had a carry permit in another state for 10+ years
Texas State Representative House District: State House Rep District 66
Carry guns/equipment: IWB carry a CZ P-07 9mm as my primary, also pocket carry a S&W Airweight .38 as my backup

Those are the two pistols I carry and keep ready at the house. I have a couple of different holsters for each, depending on the scenario. I used to carry Glocks, but recently sold my old gen 2 and gen 3 .45 ACP Glocks and went to this SA/DA polymer 9mm pistol from CZ. I kept my old .38 because it's still reliable and easy to carry as a back-up. I also picked up a gen 4 G17 this year, which I like to shoot, but it is mainly a range gun at this point. I plan to mount a light on it and keep it handy as a nightstand gun sometime in the near future. I have a Ruger Mini-14 and a 1022 that I have owned since my late teens, and have been using them (along with my pistols) to train my elder son how to shoot.
