    Congratulations! Hopefully you'll get over the shirt-tugging, "can anybody tell if I'm carrying" syndrome faster than I did.

    Betty,

    His situation is far different than yours.

    Your gun weighed more than you did.

    Congratulations. Expect to be quite paranoid for the firsts few weeks, always thinking that you're showing. You might also feel, like I did, a strong urge to be uncommonly courteous and polite to those around you when you start carrying in public, due to a subconscious belief that everyone knows you're carrying and a desire to be non-threatening.

    Thanks everyone. The shirt tugging was a lil problem last night, first time I carried. I don't know why I got nervous when the local LEOs showed up to eat too.
    I am not sure why it took so long to get here. A buddy of mine took the class the same time I did, he got his about a week and a half before I did. Must be the busy season.
    I will carry constantly, and train as often as possible.
    Thanks again,
