    first time carrying...G27 + girflriend

    well i returned from Lake of the Ozarks and my girlfriend and I had a great trip!!! I just wanted to share my story and say thanks to all of the people of the this forum and i hope you all know how much help you are and how much I (and I'm sure others) appreciate all the input from everyone.

    So to the trip...as you can see I'm from Illanoy and can't carry obviously, I just got my out of state PA permit. So nonetheless i was excited to hit that MO border to get my baby out and put it in my pocket. I live in southern Illinois so it was about a 4-5 hr drive to Osage Beach. So we took I-70W to STL and as soon as we crossed that border we stopped at a gas station and I was like a proud parent getting my gun out of my case and putting a mag in and racking one back. I just looked at my girlfriend and she had a big smile on her face. So i had a small fobus holster with me and was wearing cargo's so i just threw it in there for now.

    We went to Tan-Tar-A resort and it was really nice and very reasonably priced (I think they were running specials that the lady found somewhere). So the first night we decided to eat at the hotel, heard they had a good restaurant, so i wore jeans and took out my MTAC holster and put it on. Of course i had to do the typical thing and ask my g/f a few times if she could see it and she said it looked fine. So we went and ate and then drove into town to go to a few retail shops. No one said a word and it all went great. (Don't worry I'm heading to Terre Haute, IN to see my brother next week so I plan on doing the wally world walk there, i have my map printed already )

    We shopped and all that, I didn't buy too much just a few Harley shirts. BUT I did get a new holster for the G27. While walking and having the G27 in my cargo shorts the fobus holster was just too big and bulged alot. So i picked up an IWB leather Don Hume holster that was only $28 at Pistols Plus, I couldn't believe the price. It fit great and nicely in my cargo shorts and also now i have another IWB holster if need be.

    All in all we had a great trip had no problems with LEO and nothing out of the ordinary come up. It was uneventful for the gun, but it was a blast carrying it. Overall great experience and can't wait to do it again!

    So you carried you Glock 27 AND your girlfriend? Sounds like you don't need a gun!

    The G27 is a great gun. On the hip or in the pocket.

    Been there from where you started. Didja feed the fish? The last time we went was ten or fifteen years ago so that may not be a thing these days. As for the move thing don't worry about it. As I've said before if you ain't got the grit to stay and try to do something about it don't crow about turning tail and running.

    Chrise2004, Thanks for the report and glad you had a great trip in the "Zarks!"

    +1 on Pistols Plus! I got my XD9sc there with an excellent LEO discount. One of the young guys who works there is a State Trooper as well.

    They have a decent indoor range so next trip stop by and get some shooting in. They rent guns too!

    Spent a lot of my summers at Osage Beach since my cousins have a home there. Send me a PM if you ever go back, I'll hook you up with some good restaurants and places to stay.

    Been to Tan-Tar-A many times. We have an annual medical conference there and another one at Lodge of the 4 Seasons.

    Again, glad you guys had a good time on your trip!

    Sounds like you enjoyed yourself. Just think how much you would enjoy yourself if you moved out of IL.
