I carry my M&P Shield 40 or my 3.8' compact XDM. Both have TruGlo sights. The TrueGlo's make a huge difference. I carry where ever I can. I live in Illinois and I am a correctional officer. I didn't have to test for my CCL and got the license in 90 days. It sucks that my license isn't reciprocated in the surrounding states but we don't honor states around us either. Stupid Illinois.
