I am not a CCW virgin anymore (TX); EDC
Good morning everyone,
As I have been doing a lot of lurking and trolling (not in a creepy way though :danceban:).
After taking my CHL course, I eagerly awaiting and checked the mail everyday and my license finally came in yesterday afternoon. Strangley enough, I told myself I will go to the mall when I get it so I could "dress for the gun"; I hate the mall and always will hate it.
But nonetheless, I needed clothes so I went. I use a Comp-Tac Infidel kydex holster and a Glock G26 (9mm w/ Federal Hydrashocks); right side. One of the things I was most concerned of was being made or even the clip sticking out (since I did the +2 on one clip). My paranoia made sure I kept pulling my shirt down or being shifty. Eventually, I told myself to stop picking at it (the gun, not myself :tumbleweed:).
So once I made myself stop worrying over nothing, all was good. I noticed my SA was higher than normal - even though I have been practicing since the CCW course. Towards the end of my trip to the mall, it felt rather comfortable actually.
I personally never understood how some people on the forums said: "it's so comfortable, you even forget it's on", but now I do. When I got home, I completely forgot about it until I was ready for the shower as I was undressing. It's not that I forgot I was armed, I just didn't think about disarming myself at home.
-EDC: Infidel Comp-Tac IWB, G26 9mm w/ Hydrashocks, SOG Flash II (left side) -- cell phone, wallet, keys.
- As I was shopping, I noticed plaid/line shirts hide prints very well.
I wish I had more to add, but I don't. :frown:
If anyone has any tips/advice for the future, it would be great!
