Oh yeah... Bad day in LA for sure. But nice comparison Scrvoy.

The goal of a CCW is that no one knows your are armed. :-)I spend the next two hours walking this mall without buying anything. Want to know a secret? NO ONE NOTICED! No one, not the LEO’s, not the Security, and certainly not the shoppers paid me the least bit of attention!
After yesterdays ventures into the land of concealed carry I made some adjustments and went out looking for it. You know, I looked all over town and could not find it… I searched the mall once more and it was not there, I stopped at Target feeling sure that it would be there, but once more I could not find it.
I then went to Wal-Mart looking for it, I did all of the things required by a newbie carry without spending the money that I don’t have right now, I checked out all the new styles of cover clothing, I perused the video section looking for Heat or another good “MACHO” movie, I wandered over to sporting goods but they were out of Winchester 147gr JHP ammo and a have a sufficient supply of WWB to last until payday. Then it was over to the grocery department to “shop” for all of the stuff to make my own nachos’ (our Wal-Mart does not have the snack-bar that sells the prefab grease and imitation cheese concoction called nachos’) In the end I left without buying anything, but after all of that I could not find it.
Because of the digging into my fat that my C-TAC is doing when I drive I stopped at Lowes on the way home looking for a piece of leather that I could fabricate into a skin guard. For the small price of $5.00 I bought a leather nail pouch with the plan of cutting it don and attaching it to the C-TAC, if it works I will post pictures. I looked all over Lowes and I still could not find it.
After that it was back home, kind of a disappointing day… but I will most likely find it tomorrow when I carry at work for the first time.
What is it? I am glad you asked! It is the flashing neon sign that floats over the newbie’s head announcing GUN! To all who pass by. I never felt that anyone was even paying me any attention, but I have read several accounts of first week carry where that sign was present. Shucks; I wanted to see it!
