    welcome for michigan's great southwest....
    I think you would find that most of us do something similar when at home. I often have my IWB holster on with firearm exposed while in the house, or lounging. especially in michigan when a jacket is needed for most months...
    MANY people 'practiced' in that period before their permit arrived. and it is good practice...get used to the rig and the weight, figure out how to wear it (location), and how to position accessories..ie mag pouch, knife, flashlight, etc. figure out the type of clothes needed.
    I say keep doing what you are doing, it is after all...YOUR HOUSE

    No, you're not weird. You're just practicing a real-world skill.

    Nope, keep practicing. I carry all the time when I am at home. Yesterday, when I got home I washed my truck. Later that day my wife asked if I was carrying because she couldn't tell. I replied yes dear I had my S&W model-38 in my pants pocket. Stay armed, stay safe!

    I did it while I was waiting for my CHL to show up...killed time and let me know what was working and not was not. At my request the wife and kids would tell me "Dad your Gun is showing!" Or "dad your Printing"
    Practice makes perfect. Most of the time it was un loaded and I was just getting used to the addidtional gear.
    Now its second nature, Funny thing is, now my wife and kids are experts at spotting other CCW'ers...We'll be out and they'll whisper, Hey Dad, that guys got a gun....

    Now setting up a schedule for the family to pull fire watch is weird. Installing a turret in your house is cool, but weird.

    Same here. Actually, I do every evening while wearing loose shorts. If I am doing yard work, I use my MTAC. I'll do the same as soon as my CCW arrives.

    YES - You are weird !!

    In their eyes anyone who is proactive and prepared to protect themselves and the ones they love is weird! They are still sheeple, and that is ok. You have chosen to be a sheep-dog...

    so, being weird is not necessarily a "bad thing" I carry all of the time (except in the shower) To your GF and Mom I would be very weird...

    as they get used to your carrying you will become "less weird" and (hopefully) you will eventually become normal (to them) again

    Practice and demonstrate safety with everything you do. Know all the rules and never , ever get lax. If asked, explain the rules you follow and why you do so. It's been my experience that, more often than not, anti-gun people are not necessarily firm in their beliefs (Most have no knowledge of firearms or statistics at all). They only spout what they've been spoon fed. Words from us are good but words and teaching is much better. After any of the above fails, be firm in your beliefs and let the chips fall . You've decided to take responsibility..now it's their turn .
    From me, I got 8 more good guys/gals to obtain their permit. Half of them thought they were anti gun until I took them to the range, spent a ton of time just talking, calmly, teaching safety first and foremost.
    We need not hammer people to understand us but, we can teach them if they are the slightest bit open to being taught.

    It makes perfect sense to practice what works for you and what won't. Waiting till the day you get your permit and THEN finding out your holster,carry position etc. is uncomfortable is a bad idea imo. Strolling around Wally World fiddling with your rig trying to get comfortable is not conducive to "concealed".
    Besides, You practice with your pistol at range to get used to it don't ya'? Well,why wouldn't you practice carrying it too?

    Sheep have a hard time understanding. Anytime you practice something, it should be the way you are actually going to do it.
