I had DirecTV here today installing an additional line and DVR in my son's room. He struck me as a bit odd for a cable installer since he was clean and presented himself as very put together While he was here he saw my case to my Springer XD-40SC sitting by the coffee table downstairs (I had cleaned and lubed the gun this morning). He said "Which Springer is that?" When I told him he raised his shirt and said "I carry the XD-9SC." You never know who is going to be carrying these days. It brings up the question as to whether or not you care if contractors or repair men carry into your home. I personally do not. I figure if it is concealed it is concealed and I assume they will not be waving it around or doing anything unsafe with it.
