Greetings to all from Northern VA. Although I've owned firearms and enjoyed going to the range on occasion for decades, I've never felt a need or desire to carry until recently. I open carried on the way home from the range last week with one brief stop at a convenience store. It felt kind of awkward, but no issues with anyone or indication that they noticed.

Yesterday, I got my CHP so I decided to try it out. Went to half a dozen stores today and other than being a little OCD about making sure I wasn't inadvertently printing, it was a complete non event. The requisite "Wally Walk" was part of the trip, although what I ended up having to purchase would not have been my first choice. While checking the ammo case for any scraps (none to be had), I got a text from my daughter that she needed me to pick up feminine products while I was there. :rolleyes: Kind of a weird combo of empowering and emasculating at the same time. :lol:

Between OC and CC, I lean more towards CC at least for now. I've been reading a lot of in the OC forum and I can understand and support it, just not sure it's my style. But, who knows. I may change my mind someday.

Anyways, I've been lurking for a month or so and wanted to say thanks for all the great info!

Breaking news: a responsible citizen walked armed among the public, and...nothing noteworthy happened. Good job (and quit tugging at your shirt :tongue: )

Hey, real men care for all the needs of the women they love. Not just safety. :wink:

What is your carry set up?

Here's my current setup. Glock G26 in a White Hat MaxTuck IWB. I still have it adjusted as it came out of the box. The top of the kydex is just level with the top of my jeans and I'm wearing at the 4:00 position. Any suggestions to try?No spare may pouch yet. Any suggestions of IWB/OWB setups?
