America's 1st Freedom Managing Editor Mel Dixon joined up with the NRA's Shooting Illustrated to feature in a segment of their "I Carry" series. 

In it, she tells us about the Kimber Micro 9 Rapide (Black Ice) in a DeSantis Slim-Tuk holster, along with a Benchmade Mini-Griptilian pocketknife.

"Concealed carry is trickier for me than many other people because I’m only 5 feet tall and 110 pounds. So, the first thing I consider with any gun is its size. This Kimber Micro 9 Rapide in Black Ice, however, is small enough at 4 inches tall and 6 inches long for me to conceal it with the help of the DeSantis Slim-Tuk holster," says Dixon.

I Carry is a series that showcases firearms, holsters and accessories that work for daily-carry. Shooting Illustrated has shown us dozens of viable options and now, Dixon lends her experience to a fellow NRA publication.

You can find the full I Carry feature from Shooting Illustrated here.

As for the Micro 9 Rapide, it is one sharp-looking 9 mm concealed-carry pistol that is absolutely worth showing off. You can read America's 1st Freedom's full review of this show-worthy firearm here.
