    The "First Walk"

    So I received my LTCF from the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department this afternoon and as a lot of "newbies" do, went for the Wally Walk. I did feel a little nervous that someone might catch a glimpse, but it was surprisingly comfortable and well concealed. Decided since I was there I'd pick myself up a box or 2 of ammo.

    I figured this would be a good patience test... with it being the day after Christmas and all

    Congradulations! Resist the urge to constantly check and adjust.

    Oh, and welcome to the Forum. Ask questions! People here offer good advice (it is the internet - you be the final judge......). There are many more smarter people here than I, and it is a very well moderated site. Don't be against asking..... Again, Do You Like the feeling of freedom? Can't beat it............................

    Congrats! I found that the Wally World Walk is a good test of patience.

    You must be buying something like .267 or something. I went to 2 different WM's in my area and the ammo shelves were just about bare.

    I've only been carrying a few months, and I already (almost) forget I'm carrying sometimes. Thought about that today as I was walking out of the store. Congrats on taking the big step!

    Well that just proves it ... the Wally Walk ... is not restricted to one location.

    Ah yes I remember it well, looking at everyone to see who was looking at me.

    Yes the freedom is a good feeling.

    I bought the last 2 .40 boxes so I got lucky

    I've read numerous threads here and they are all very informative. Glad to be apart of this great community!

    I'm going to have to work on not adjusting as much. I'm sure once I carry for a few months that it will be relatively natural for me.

    Geez, if you ever happen by the one *I* went to (Lake Geneva, WI), I spent more time *in line at the McDonalds* in the foyer than I did in the store.

    "Fast food" had no meaning there. It was a pretty unruly crowd after a while. Lots of short fuses (nowhere near the holidays, which was probably a good thing).

    Congrats! Welcome to the forum. It does get easier and then you almost forget it is there. Don't forget to get to a range and practice drawing and shooting from your concealed carry position.

    Congratulations... Give it a little time and it will feel completely second nature.

    Welcome to DC and congrats on getting your permit. The "Wally Walk" and others like it are a right of passage for the CC'er.

    Welcome to the forum, I’ve been carrying for some years but one of my favorite things is to go to Wally-World and pick up a new rifle. It’s comical that they have to carry the rifle to the door before they can turn it over to you; unbeknownst to them you have a cocked and locked 1911 under your shirt.
