    Smile Took only 10 days! Wally World today!

    I got my permit today. Only 10 days total including the weekend

    Unfortunately, the only holster I have is the one that came with my XD-45 Service. I did strap it on, put on my leather jacket and went to Wally World.

    Ours doesn't sell nachos, so I got Subway. I wasn't going to buy anything, so i didn't get a cart but ended up grabbing a few things anyways.

    I was with my wife and didn't tell her I was carrying. I thought I could get away with it, but as usual, she hugged me, so I told her before she got to close. She was a little upset. Need to work on that.

    Last night, we had to drive into the worse trailer park in town.. my wife said I was brave. I opened my console and showed her why I wasn't sweating it

    Now to find a real holster....

    My wife was the same way at first. Then we got lost in a bad part of town while vacationing in Ohio and she was glad I was carrying. It changes with time . stick to your guns.

    Congratulations on getting your CHL! You DEFINITELY need a better rig than the cheap crap that is XDGEAR. Both of my XDs reside in High Noon IWB holsters, they work great for me.

    Congrats on receiving the permit.

    If you know huggy type people always go low with your arms, forcing them to go high and miss the gun. The wife is usually excepted from this, though.

    Congrats. Is 10 days a record or something?

    My wife was a little wary of me carrying at first, but I kept pointing out things like the importance of the family being safe the importance of being prepared for anything.

    This last shooter in the mall thing kinda brought everything together for her.

    It is also important to be consistent when carrying. If I have on pants then I am armed. My wife knows that. There is no reason for her to ask "why are you taking your gun?". I always have it.

    Through talking with my wife about my CHL and how she felt about it. I learned that she originally thought me carrying was some macho guy thing. "You feel cool packing a gun". Once we had a serious talk and I made here aware of my feelings and concerns regarding my personal safety and the safety of our family, she got the whole picture.

    Now if I could just get her to get a CHL too.

    Congratulations and welcome to the pack!

    In Other News: I find disturbing that less and less WallyWorlds are offering nachos. I think it is time we re-think re-tool the rules.

    Congrats on the permit. Heck, I'd rather have a subway than nachos anytime!
