that feeling passes eventually. Most people are in con white all day and would'nt notice if you had a bazooka on your back. Its tough not to keep touching your gun and making sure its covered and still there.
good luck and be safe

I always thought my carry piece was on display.
It goes away in time

Congratulations on the ccw. You will get use to it in time. It will be part of the wardrobe.

Ok Brat... Congrats on joining the ranks of those who live free and responsibly! Well Done!
Wear a rig that is snug and stays put so you don't have to keep tugging up your rig or fidget with it.
Now comes the new holster collection that is inevitable. Doing good research and asking questions will help you minimize buying lots of worthless nylon or leather. When it comes to holsters, and gunbelts, you get what you pay for so don't waste money on bargain bin rigs for your concealment rig.
Welcome to the forums, I hope you decide to hang with us for a while.
