Phantom gun feeling on my hip.
Jury duty + No CC = :(
Today I had to report for my civic obligation of jury duty at the district court house. Of course I had to strip my body of all specialized tools of self defense before hand. Last time I felt so naked was years ago for my daughters graduation, at least then I had a knife. Sitting there in the jury pool playing the wait game. I keep having this weird feeling that my pistol is still on my right hip. Half dozen times or so I reach to three O'clock to make sure it wasn't with me, even after passing through security. Very freaky, phantom concealed carry syndrome. Any one else experience this before?

Yes. I have to check myself several times before entering my workplace to make sure I disarmed. You would think it would be a little more comfortable without the 1911, but I just feel naked.

I get that phantom feeling as well. I get it from my BlackBerry as it goes off so much for work that sometimes I will swear I can feel it vibrate even though it is not on my belt. I wondered if I would get that when I started carrying and sure enough, it's there, didn't take long at all.

Yes, it is very unnerving to reach down and it's not there!

Not quite as bad as being in a rush upon leaving the house, put on the IWB holster, depart, get to destination and realize you forgot to install EDC into holster.

Phanton gun, feeling naked - oh yeah, for the last three of the last 4 weeks. Staying with my daughter and her husband in NY to help care for him. Administering IV antibiotics and taking him to Dr. and therapy appointments. (He had Lemierr's syndrome - almost died from it 4 weeks ago today - recovering nicely now.) But I digress, live in PA, PA CHL, can't carry in NY. So here I am in the second highest crime county in NYS running around with out my G26. Daughter has her permit but she's at work. I have her shotgun available when we are at home, which helps a little, but when out and about I really miss my Glock.
Talk about being on alert? I feel like a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.
Am I in favor of national reciprocity? Heck yes!
