    Motown Wheel Guy

    Hello!

    In the past year, I've increased my awareness of personal security and self-defense. To this end, I began learning more about handguns, received my CPL, and purchased a carry gun. After putting hundreds of rounds through other guns, as well as my chosen daily carry piece (a .357 revolver, affectionately named 'Rosco', will eventually be the BUG), I loaded her with defensive JHPs, and turned my attention to the art of carrying concealed.

    It was surprisingly easy transitioning to having a handgun with me at all times. Sure, there have been a couple of panic moments when I've "lost" Rosco, absentmindedly having set it on my desk or end table and subsequently covering it with a folder or newspaper. But these have all been at home, and have only underscored the need to focus on my actions, and be conscious of my state of mind: Condition Yellow or Condition White.

    I've purchased a couple of reinforced belts, as well as clothing intended to facilitate concealed carry.

    Everything has gone smoothly, although I've had my 'newbie' moments. (One such occurred when, in public, I briefly lifted my outer shirt in order to scratch my belly, leaving Rosco plainly exposed.) So far, all such incidents have been minor and even humorous, thankfully.

    To date, I'd call my experience normal, with a typical learning curve.

    In order to accommodate my new defensive mind-set, there have been more adjustments to my lifestyle required than initially anticipated. Needless to say, the budget has taken an incredible hit, and I have a seemingly ever-expanding collection of accessories, including: cleaning equipment, snap-caps, speed-loaders, ammo boxes, and holsters. (Especially holsters - Holy Cow! I have a whole dresser drawer devoted to a collection of paddles, IWBs, belt rigs, and pocket sleeves). Mostly, I've come to realize how much I don't know... this site has been great for helpful, specific advice and information.

    A "bump-in-the-middle-of-the-night" bag is being assembled, as is the home defense shotgun, and a few other projects are in the works.

    Cheers, and stay safe...
