    Come on, dave. You know what I'm talking about. If someone doesn't have enough common sense to know when they should seek medical advice, there's not much I or anybody else can do for them.
    A man's got to know his gun's limitations!

    Yes, and it cleanses the soul and good for the skin. Some times you do what ya gotta do. I ran down to the ABC store and refilled my Prescription.

    My back pain quit when I stopped carrying a metal gun, now if I carry more than an LCP it's a G-23 IWB no problem.

    Glad you found a solution, the important thing is that you are still able to carry and protect yourself and your family.

    Well, my wife and I purchased new mattresses yesterday to replace our old badly worn out mattresses. I'm hoping that will at least help improve my sore lower back. That would be a step in the right direction.

    Could be a major help. If you have removed the source of the pain, and you think it is just a muscle spasm, then maybe go to the doctor and get some muscle spasm meds. If you are not sleeping at night, they may be a big help. As I mentioned, muscle tears take about six weeks to heal. I have had so many over the years. I knew when ever I got one how long it would hurt my training schedule. It would always be six weeks. I would plan to keep training in some other way to keep up. Like Swimming etc.
    Hopfully the mattresses will be a big help. Regardless, a good mattress is never a waste of money. Good luck.

    By the way, don't forget the silly putty effect. And this device is a Godsend. I use it all the time and have been for decades. Really loosens up the muscles and gets the blood flowing through the tissue. Most people just do not get the fact that tight muscles in the back get pulled so easily. Also, If you get this device, use on your hamstrings, they get very tight and pull very hard on the back.

    That is very cool. Something to seriously look for. I do have a very nice Tens unit that also helps.

    I also carry the LCP II. I carry a 4:00 in a Remora clip holster IBW. It's hardly noticeable. If you are looking for 9MM at that size (about) . I would suggest looking at the Sig P938.

    I just purchased a Walther PPS-M2. No where near the size you're talking about but I love the gun!
