    Made it a whole day CCing

    This is the first time I spent the entire day CCing. Getting used to the heft on my belt. Unfortunately I have to go to Chicago tomorrow and will have to leave my pistol at home. Damn IL gun laws!!

    Good for you. It'll become second nature in no time.

    Congrats! Like boricua said, it'll become second nature in no time at all. You'll soon get to the point where you won't feel "natural" without it!

    Yeah it won't be long and you won't even think about it. Congrats on your day and hopefully they all will be as uneventful as the first one. Welcome to the forum too.

    Chicago - the one place you will probably need it. ;)

    You'll get used to it. Assuming you've got effective clothing, holster, belt choices, it'll get easier. Pretty soon, you won't really be thinking much about it.

    Congratulations on your new responsibilities.

    And, as for Illinois, hopefully it won't be too much longer before something is put in place to lawfully recognize CC. It would be nice to see another 8M cease being criminalized for no good reason.

    After a short while you'll go through an automatic routine each morning - pants on, fly zipped, shirt on, shoes tied, firearm firmly in its place on your belt. That extra heft you feel will be very reassuring.

    Welcome to the club. I was nervous the first time I carryed. But I feel a little naked without it. A good holster and belt makes all the wolds difference. Stay safe.

    The day will come that you no longer even think about it being there. In fact you'll be trying to figure out what is missing when you realize it isn't there.

    I fully agree, it is comfortable for me, but I never forget it is there.

    Good for you. Everyone is right, it will soon become second nature. I’m embarrassed to say this but I have actually forgotten a few times I had my weapon on. I feel underdressed when I don’t have mine on. My wife laughs and tells me to wear my empty IWB holster at those times I cannot carry my weapon with me. It will help with my “withdraw insecurities”.

    Not only will you get 'used to carrying' you will find that your comfort level decreases when not carrying.

    Congratulations on your first day of cc. It will become second nature as you get used to the feel of the gun and realize that people really aren't staring at you. I live in Wisconsin and I refuse to go to Illinois for anything and I only live 2 miles from the border!
