    I got my CCW today!



    I didn't do the WWW as I've done that at least 20-30 times open carrying. I did hit the grocery store though and it was as boring as can be! For the first time I carried and didn't even get one sideways glance!

    I figured that. A boring day of carrying is a good day though!

    I forgot to add it only took 31 days. Talk about quick!

    The only one that seems to notice that you have a gun is you. Once you get past that, its like a game and realizing that so many people really don't pay attention to too many things in their everyday life. Congrats on the permit.
    Never argue with idiots - they'll drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    And chances are good that you'll NEVER get a glance. And if you ever do get "made" and someone starts asking questions, tell them its a colostomy or something of that sort... that should end the conversation real quick.

    congrats!

    The only time I was made was at the vet when my dog was sedated and getting his tartar removed....I kind of bent down to him up to take him home and a couple behind me saw part of my Glock....I could hear the room go silent, but no one said anything.

    Congrats on the new permit. I'm learning how oblivious most people are to their surroundings. They'll never notice you.
