Make that by 2
also he is correct no need to conceal but, not always the greatest idea to open carry. There are lots of Permit to carry classes, I actually just renewed mine today I go through GAH it's a great class I enjoy it I cannot post the link so if you are interested let me know. I'm waiting for my own XDS 45 ACP and XD Sub Compact 9mm, getting the 45 Thursday not sure on the other. From what I've read here and other reviews I am going to love both of them.
