    Long time reader, first time poster.

    Hello All, I've been lurking these forums for months and would like to thank all the members for contributing their advice and experiences. Your posts have helped me become a better ccp holder. So now I would like to help the next new ccp holder.

    I've had my ccp since march, and I remember being scared to death of printing. My first carry gun was a G26 in a Smart carry. Then traded up to G36 in an IWB, now i'm jumping up to the G21sf in OWB set up.

    what i'm trying to say here is that Don't worry about printing to much.
    You're not printing as bad as you think you are.
    Go Hokies!!!

    Welcome to our forum. Feel free to ask any questions on any aspect of concealed carry (CC). The same applies to open carry (OC) as well. I can guarantee that you will get more than a few responses on these topics.

    Welcome. You are among friends. We all have had the sensation of being outed when concealing a handgun. My wife just got her permit and now a Ruger LCP and she is starting to learn to carry it without being nervous, etc.

    Keep on doing it and learning, eventually it will be so natural, you will wonder how you went so long without.

    I thought I'd be really paranoid about printing too.

    I was so surprised to find out that mostly, I don't care.

    Well said!

    Besides that, the only people who might even notice are CCW'ers and maybe a police officer but probably not the later!
