    How did you feel/what was going through your head.

    Well the time draws near for my first CC ever. It will be some time in November and i am not really sure how i will feel or what will be racing in my mind. I think it will be a state of paranoia and that every one is looking at me and can see the gun. I think my heart will be pounding with all the things that could happen(what is they see the gun and the cops come)( what is the gun comes out of the holster and falls to the ground)(what is when it hits the ground it goes off) and so on. I would like to know how the rest of you felt or what was going on in your head or what happened. This is some what on the lines of the 7 stages post but not really as i am asking how you felt/what you where thinking. Not what stage you where in the first day. Any feed back could be great.

    Mostly relief that I was finally "legal" in the eyes of the law even though I was legal all along according to the 2ND Amendment.

    It has been quite some time, but I know that it is normal for most people to assume that every is looking at you and everyone just knows you are carrying.

    An example I could give would be today when I stopped in to get some lunch. There were two Sheriff's cars parked out front. I walked in the door, right past their table within feet, and didn't give it a thought. If it had been when I was first carrying I would have been sweating walking in the door expecting them to throw me to the ground and throwing on the cuffs.

    You will go through the same feelings that every first time CC'er does. Over time it will become second nature, and you will not give it any thought, except when necessary.

    I see that you are from New Hampshire. Have you open carried at all?

    it felt good to be able to carry a pistol legally concealed. to know that I have it in case a bad situation happens. of course there are those times when you have to ask someone you trust to look at you and you ask, "can you see it?, how about now?" but the truth of the matter is, if you act normal and don't act like you are carrying a gun, then no one else will have a clue. if you act nervous, then people will be able to tell that something is up. you will get more comfortable with it the more you carry it to the point where it is just a part of you and it just feels wrong without it. so just try to stay calm and don't act like you are carrying a gun and no one will know the difference.

    Yes open carry is legal in NH. Yes i think i will be looking at every one like they can see it and i think i will have my hand on. My wallet ready to show my permit to LEO if and when some one see the gun and calls them them. I think my heart will be thumping lol but most of the LEO are cool and do not bust your balls. I just hope the holster i had custom made for the M&P has as good retention as they said it will. As it has no thumb brake on it to hold the gun in. ON A SIDE NOTE.. as i was typing this my holster came the mail man just dropped it off i will post photos later.

    By the way, I noticed in the original post that you were expecting to receive your CCW permit in November. I am not even a resident, and it took less than a month for me to receive mine. Are you just providing a conservative estimate, or has the wait time increased since I applied for mine back in '05?

    LOL, No you miss read that one LOL, I said i would be Paying for my FIRST CC HAND GUN in NOV. I already have my permit i have had it for a month or two. I got that back in about a week. I don't have all the cash for my M&P yet plus i don't need it yet. So thats why i am picking it up in NOV.
