After 9 months of cc every day except for 2 which I knew I would be drinking, alot has changed from what i believed at the beginning. The small LCP which I had to have because you could see my Glock 26 way too much, has since been sold and my G26 (with grip extensions) now is my EDC. All of the button ups that I bought are nicely hung in the closet and the t-shirsts have been brought back from the grave. I have not been made once in the nine months and all of the time and effort trying to hide the smallest gun possible should of been spent at the range. Ive even purchased a Glock 19 and plan to add it to the options for carry. Did I mention that the 3 $80.00 holsters are now in the closet and the 30.00 highnoon holster is my daily rig. Thats alot of ammo I should have bought. Needless to say, I had to discover these things for myself and Im glad that I did. Now if I could just find a ccdw badge that I like I would be set. (just kidding about the badge)

Kind of like pregnancy followed by childbirth. Some things just naturally follow. Congratulations.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
And regardless of what the Brady Bunch anti's may insist, in those 9 months of your CC, no children have been traumatized and no kittens have been harmed.
Good post! Its a personal learning post, but also can shed info for the "youngsters". Thanks

Forty two years of concealed carry. My how things have changed!
How many boxes of holsters and other gear do you have, that for some reason just didn't work out as you had hoped? I have 3 banker's boxes.

It really does amaze me how much people really could care less what I am doing. Most of the public wont even look people in the eye much less their waist to see the "buldge". I was so worried at first I probably looked guilty of a crime. I still think about it sometimes but I am not worried.
You mean in 9 months your gun didn't just "go off by itself"? I've been carrying for about 44 years and mine never went bang until I wanted it to.

Well, the best I can say is, "at least I don't have as many holsters as my wife has pairs of shoes or purses"...
