    Used to be the same way. Now, over a year later, I do not even think about it. In fact the other night took the wife and son to dinner at a local Italian eatery. When we pulled up it seems this was the place to eat for all the local PD to eat on this night. I did not even think twice about it. Just strolled up and went right through the middle of 10-12 PD's standing at the front door. Once inside my son asked me if I was worried they would notice I was carrying. I just said I did not even think about it...I would have probably freaked out a year ago...

    Congrates on the permit. I remember my first night out being armed. I remember being pretty comfortable but also looking around to see if anyone was looking at me.

    Now you need to get your wife to carry.

    One does get so nonchalant about carrying a weapon that it can slip one's mind at times.

    Example:

    Last Summer, I had spend to spend a number of long hours at the bike shop for maintenance on my Wing. I was wearing a T shirt under a flannel shirt that was not tucked in. It hides the equipment real good. At one point I got so warm, I, totally unthinking, took off the flannel shirt and hung it over one of the display bikes. People passed my by as they left the store with their purchases, or as they moved down the bike laden aisles, sitting on the various bikes. It was a few minutes later that one of the guys working there, who carries a Kel-Tec nine on him, motioned to me, pointing down to my sides. I had totally forgotten I was carrying. My Commander and the Defender on the other hip were in plain sight. I grabbed that flannel shirt in a hurry and put it back on.

    Nobody, except a boy who looked to be about 10 or so had noticed anything unusual. The boy kept his eye on me the whole time his parents were in that store. I have the feeling he thought I was a cop.

    Anyway, that's how used to carrying one can get. Totally forgetting oneself. And - no, we don't have silly a "printing" law in my state. Actually, there is no stated law about open carry. I wouldn't try the latter, though.

    Don't ever apologize for turning down nachos and McDonald's because you're going home for real barbecue!!

    I did the same thing my first day. I had that same voice (cept no wife)

    That voice isnt as loud anymore, instead replaced by greater situational awareness.

    That's the only part of the story that baffled me...

    Am I the only one here who hasn't been to a Wal-Mart since even obtaining a CCDW (in KY) permit? I just don't care for the atmosphere of the local Wal-Mart (which isn't intended as a slam on Wal-Mart patrons in general; I just don't care for the one store nearest me).

    I've carried in Kroger, Target, a movie theater, a video game shop, more than one mall, when walking down a major road, to various resturaunts (but no 'bars') and to the homes of various friends and relatives. I've gone out of the city and even out of the state (directly to a state with reciprocity with my permit, and within legal carry boundaries within that state), but I've not so much as set foot in a Wal-Mart store since carrying a concealed deadly weapon.

    Am I still considered a virgin or something?

    YES! :P

    No im just kidding. I was just told to do that by another CCW holder as an initiation. Im sure he picked it up somewhere too.
