For the past year, I've read stories of the WWW (Wally
World Walk) when getting a new CCW. Well, working for Wally World, I've been watching. :)
Twice in the past year, I've seen people that were just a little too careful how they moved. Might just have been grabbing their jacket before they bent over for something, or just holding their arms straight down by their sides as they went down the aisle.
But, If I hadn't been looking for it, I would have never seen it. ;)

haha...thanks for the tip!!
Tip for others new to carry: This may seem like a no-brainer, but have a friend or loved one keep an eye on you when you go out for the first few times. Try and force yourself to move normally and ask them to tell you if they spot anything weird about your movements. I had my SO and/or father do that and it really helped me to "act normal."
I think I would walk by and without looking at them say" They have some great nachos in the snack bar" and see if they laugh or say "What ?"
My WWW will hopefully be within 77 days...I will try to remember what you said! Got me thinking I might order my CC holster now, practice wearing around the house to get comfortable. Also...to practice my laser-guided draw! Hopefully my S&W arrives tomorrow...

Try appendix carry, there is no way you can be seen if you have a sub compact.

The FBI has a great training aid on "How to Spot a Concealed Weapon". I wish I could find it, but I've lost it. Most of the giveaways are subconscious mannerisms combined with mode of dress tip-offs. Learning to "forget" you have a CCW is a great advantage.
Of course, if people start following the recent trend and use their camera phones while on the WWW, it should be pretty easy to spot.

What strikes me here is again the idea that people see what they are looking for. MoMike took what he saw on the WWW threads and it made his awareness go up. Because he was aware at work he saw some people who may well have been making their WWW.
Good on you for raising your awareness my friend!
For everyone else, the key here is that he never saw anyone actually carrying, just some signs that made his spidey-senses tingle. If someone looking for it never saw a print or could confirm, how about the general public? This should increase confidence in everyone who CCs.
It's all about awareness. If you are aware of your surroundings instead of lost in your own la-la land it provides you probably the greatest deterrent to becoming a statistic that exists. MoMike was watching for CCs; that same logic can be used to prevent SD situations too.
Thanks for the post MoMike!

I have a few other places I am allowed to carry (business relationships) and it has helped in acting "normal" if thats possible for me. LOL
I also carry all the time at home.
Good call on your part. Carry safe and carry always. (within the law)

That is what I do. I carry concealed around the house though sometimes I carry openly. I'm getting used to having it on my side while waiting for my permit to come in.
