Carried for the first time today
I've had my permit for about a month but I was at college (I'm 21) so I never got to use it until today.
CC'd with my G27 that I got for my birthday in my Mtac. First stop was to IHOP for brunch. With my parents. Then wore it to Sports Authority and later to Blockbuster. It's a bit unnerving walking through the "detectors" even though they are just for merchandise.
I have yet to do the WWW, but I'll get around to it eventually. All in all a great day.
Just sad I can't carry on campus, so I have to leave it at home for now.

It's a nice feeling, eh? The feeling...is being able to defend yourself.

Yeah, well. The elected autocrats don't yet understand how fully committed to crime criminals are. Criminals are everywhere. Until folks are able to defend themselves everywhere, we will continue to have victims of heinous crimes who are utterly unable to defend themselves due to having been forcibly disarmed at the point of a gun by the elected putzes (the ones against upstanding citizens' ability to defend against crime). It's obscene, what some folks are reduced to, in some states.

Nicely, Oregon is one of the few places in the USA where it's possible to carry on campus and not be imprisoned for doing so.
Good luck in school. Congrats on the ability to carry. Kudos!

On your carry debut! Awesome! Doing it with a Glock...............PRICELESS!

Congratulations! I just started carrying a few months ago. I wish more law abiding citizens would do the same.

Awesome. You'll get used to carrying. Great choice in CCWs, BTW. The 27 is what I carry off-duty most of the time.

It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

I recently got mine too and have the same problem. I can legally carry on campus, but if anyone catches me, I get expelled by school policy.

It was (and still can be) rather exciting to carry around town and so on.

Don’t mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.
