    The wait is over! I am officially one of the crew!

    Just called my Sheriff's office and my new permit is finally ready to be picked up. $10 from now I'll have a permit and the legal right to be protected.

    Took exactly two weeks from drop off to pick up which is good I guess. It gave me time to take some classes, get comfortable carrying a gun (around the house) and trying different holster options, and I feel I am now ready to carry.

    I can't carry during the day due to my job, but I'll keep the pistol locked in my car safe anyway.

    Thanks to you guys for a lot of good discussions and help during my wait.

    Congrats! You may feel weird at first when you carry like everyone knows, but don't worry, noone will notice a thing. It won't take long until you feel naked without your gun.

    Congrats on the permit. The newness will soon wear off and it will feel totally natural to be armed and almost undressed to not be armed. Stay safe!

    Congrats, and many of us in Indiana do this next:
    1. Sign the card;
    2. Laminate the card (after signing!) to reduce moisture/wear.
    Fast is good but accurate is better.

    Congratulations! As has been said, it'll feel odd at 1st & you'll think you're "printing" all the time, then you'll get comfortable with it. Over time, you will feel naked if you're not carrying & it'll be part of your wardrobe just like your wallet. Have you decided on your set-up?

    Yea, cost was $7.50 and the xtra $2.50 was for lamination (they do it there).

    Yea, I have two I like best. For baggier clothing days I have the Don Hume Jit Slide (for now) and on normal days I really have grown to like my Galco King Tuck.

    I also have a S&W 442 J-Frame Airweight .38 Special, but I haven't gotten a holster for it. It fits in the JIT holster, but stretches it slightly so I won't be using it right now. Besides, my .40 has 14 +1 capacity and a lot better accuracy (at least for me) so I don't see carrying the .38 unless I am in need of really, really deep concealment.

    Funny, I actually just got back from Wal-Mart. Wife needed some stuff and I needed gun oil and various car maintenance items. Didn't feel all that odd. Had one second when an employee got behind me and I had that "oh no, my gun is showing" moment. But it was carefully tucked into it's proper place.

    Side note, the wearing of a weapon (loaded and in accessible reach) in my car has made me a less aggressive driver. I just don't want to get into any scuttlebutt because of road rage. Weird.
