1. What You Carry: Stoeger 8040 Cougar 40 S&W
2. What You Carry It In: Alien Gear IWB Holster
3. Why You Carry That Particular Gun In That Particular Holster? I liked the feel in my hand and the looks of the finish and the price was right. Shoots like a dream.
The Alien Gear holster needed a slight modification and now fits perfect both the gun and me.
