Thread: 1st time carrying concealed today...

  1. New CHL holder as of this week down on the border in Texas. Carried yesterday in HEB, Springfield Micro Compact 1911 in Galco IWB. Wasn't too bad, even stopped and flip through all the gun mags. Did occasionally check that my shirt is draped Ok without hanging up on the butt...the holster did ride really high!

    Bravo to you, brother! Welcome to the ranks. It does my heart good to have another sheepdog out there. If there's one thing I would advise it is that you actively seek to keep your awareness level high. Condition yellow, 24-7. A little on yourself, but mostly on your environment. Because getting yourself and your loved ones out of a bad spot before it gets worse is the best outcome possible. Be safe, brother.

    Wow, great discussion guys. I am about to start carrying concealed as soon as my permit comes in the mail. I hope to God I never need to use my weapon, but I want to be prepared. I have a few holsters I have purchased over the course of the last few weeks. LOL, oh well, I guess I need to check out at least one more. Thanks for having me.

    I just received my ccw on Friday and started carrying that day. I took my Mom to my Aunts house yesterday wearing my M&P 40 and she had no idea that I had it. I have to get used to carrying it, I feel like it is making my pants sag so I keep pulling them back up. I have a cross breed super tuck, it came in the same weekend that I got my ccw.

    Three parts to a good carry set up:

    1) Good carry gun
    2) Quality Holster
    3) QUALITY BELT

    Welcome to concealed carry..lesson one: get a better belt. Unless you're wearing a shoulder rig, or an ankle holster, you need a good belt to hold up you britches..lol. You can't go on a journey through self defense land with sagging pants if your packing. Lesson two..try not to touch it through your clothes...people can pick up on it, and all you need is some crazy A hole saying "I saw a gun". Lesson Three...When at home, UNLOAD CHECK CHECK AGAIN and practice, practice, practice your draws. Know how your clothing reacts when your tryin to grab in a hurry. SAFETY FIRST!!! Carry, defend, Live...its that simple. Be safe out there. Carry on.

    hey, so how do u like the Glock 23? I have a Glock 19 Gen 4. I just got it a few months ago. I've got about 350 or so rounds through it so far and I really like it. I almost went with the G23, but I've been carrying 9mm all along so far, and I've really grown to like 9's. So far the only .40's I've shot were a S&W and the Sig P226. I don't really care for either. The S&W kicked like a mule, and the Sig didn't have much "felt" recoil, but still a lot of muzzle rise compared to a 9mm. That's why I stayed with the G19 when I picked up my first Glock. I did shoot my brother's Glock 30, and I really enjoyed that. I couldn't believe how steady those sights stayed on the target. Rapid shots were easy, even compared to my G19. I get tempted every now and then to switch up to the .45 just because of that, but I'm not sure if I'd like carrying the extra bulk. Thoughts??

    i got my permit in the mail yesterday...but i'm not going to wally world any time soon.....so my first store will probably be the liquor store to buy some smokes and home depot to get a small lightbulb and do my usual garden department walk.....i can never go into a home depot and not browse their garden department. am planning to do those errands at some point today......unless it rains or i procrastinate and go tomorrow .......and i'll let you know to what degree i get self conscious about hiding my secret in public........it would be easier if my guns butt wasn't so big....double stack mag. i've tried on different clothes at home and while bending certain ways there is a noticeable bulge regardless of what i'm wearing..... so i will keep that in mind whilst taking time to smell the flowers
    gun control is being able to hit your target

  11. I felt like my zipper was down the first time I carried. I was stressing about being arrested, dropping the pistol, and tripping. I have carried for a year now and sometimes find myself printing but no longer care. I went to my sons baseball practice and played first base, my Glock was hanging out all over the place because my tshirt kept flying up and none of the parents or coaches said anything. What are you carrying and where on your body? I am in Colorado so printing isn't that big of deal being OC is legal.
