definitely go with jhp for self defense, i don't go with any brand in particular, just whatever is available. some may have brand preference and be able to shed some light in that area. check out kholster.com for a good cc holster. use code 10-1995 for 10% off. you can also find them on ebay. welcome to the forum, there is alot of good info and knowledgeable people here. congrats on the pt140!
