Well walked around with my xd 9mm sc, It was my 1st carry in public today. Very weird feeling but an ultra high. I seemed like everyone was looking at me , holster falling off,ect.Can't wait till tomarrow. If I want to practice carrying is that wrong?
This isn't legal advice, but just some friendly pointers.
Stay safe, and make sure you train very often.
Thank you ,That why I joined this group, knowledge, wisdom leadership,guidence not to be little by someone that maybe disturbed,or on some pedestal. trying to be educated in evey way
I started small and worked up. I did the "walmart walk" (carrying in a big place with lots of people) a coupe of times before I moved on to smaller places. You do what you're comfortable with. I still get nervous occasionally (I carried on a college campus recently, which is legal here in PA, but most people do not know that, and I was afraid my gun might print, and I might get the police called on me).
I carry a springfield XD .40 SC. What kind of holster do you use?
started with an iwb leather stow n go style, pants aint right. bought a paddle style owb very comfortable. Still playing with the holsters so many smany option and money.
I use a cheap desantis tuck this II. It was $20, and it is a tuckable IWB (I have to dress up sometimes, so the option of tucking my shirt in over my holster is nice).
How is the OP coming off like he is God? You do feel many different emotions the first time you carry, which is how I took it. I agree he might have learned he needs a better holster, but why pick him apart like a chicken?

congrads... highs can be lows just as fast. Learn to be an adult meaning be torrent of others. The last thing you need is trouble that involves cops. Someone cuts you off; deal with it. Someone curses you; deal with it by being the adult and show discipline and control. Carrying a is a life change in more ways than clothing
Carry often around the house even if you don't plan on leaving, but do so as if you were. It takes some getting used to having some extra hardware hanging around your waist. After a while you'll develope the confidence you need to carry in public without worry. It's new and it's a process a day at a time.
Just wanted to thank you all for the postive info. I never ounce said that I new it all, I joined this group to learn and understand cc. thank you again.
It takes some getting used to. Eventually that feeling of everyone watching you will fade. focus more on being aware of whats around you rather than what people might see,say,or think.

I do think we all must take carrying seriously the initial giddiness will wear off.
