Good points, all. My every day carry pistol is an American made, high capacity, long sight radius, auto-loader in 9mm; S&W, M&P Mod 2.0, 5 inch barrel. I carry from 2 to 4 16 round magazines with a round in the chamber. I carry my pistol openly in Texas in a Safariland ALS on a Kore Essentials gun belt. About $60 for the holster, same for the belt.
I conceal where I must and in the sanctuary of my church or incidentally as the weather or situation dictates.
