Congrats. Welcome into the fold.
Well, if you're going to carry with your shirt untucked then you might want to try a good high quality OWB on a good gun belt rather than choosing an IWB next.
Try not to over conceal unless it's absolutely necessary for you to carry deeper.
Just my personal opinion on that.

It is good to know, I suppose, that most people are wrapped up in themselves. I have noticed as I practice my carry at home (pre CHL) that I tend to print a little when I use certain shirts. I will carry mostly with IWB an my S&W Sigma. It is also good to know because it may make it easier to spot if someone is about to go very stupid and pull something.

CARRYING A CONCEALED WEAPON IS LIKE CARRYING "THAT CERTAIN PART OF YOUR ANATOMY"...JUST DON'T LET EITHER STICK OUT

But I noticed, moreso tonight than ever before, that people are so wrapped up in themselves that it's beyond funny, it's actually kinda sad. Everyone was either walking around like drones up and down the aisles or staring into space at the checkout line, or playing with their cell phone, or talking... about themselves... on their cell phone.3
That pretty well sums it up. The only person noticing your CCW IS YOU! Stop tugging on your shirt tail, no one has noticed!
Congratulations on your permit. Welcome to the club. You already have your membership card!
It easy!!!! But it's also OK to feel like somethings printing or showing too much cause that gives us another reason to buy a different gun or new holster, all is good in the World.

Sounds like fun, I hope to do the same thing in the fall. And yes, people are dumb
Congrats on your new permit. And CCWing is a cakewalk.
