I just received my permit this past week, 40 days in sussex county. Yesterday was our anniversary so we went out to dinner, went to a couple of jewelry stores and then caught some live music. I had been told that the first time you carry you might feel like a criminal. Nope, didn't happen. At one point in the restaurant, I thought I saw the manager looking my way, no problems though. My wife had a couple of glasses of wine. She had asked if I was gonna have a beer,  I said no. It took her a few minutes to realize why! Had a great night. Glad I felt "normal", not the way some had described it.

Welcome to the "club".   I carry OWB (outside the waistband)   Covering with untucked shirt, sport jacket or  Carhartt vest depending on season or venue.  Never been "outted" going on 3 1/2 years.

Welcome @redden. Glad that you are comfortable carrying. Stay “Yellow”  or higher as necessary but never get nonchalant. Smart move on the beer.

When my wife and I are out, sometimes she'll ask me if I'm getting a drink. I'll say no. Then she will ask me if I have my "tool". When I say yes, she understands.

You will probably note that you will now go out of your way even more to avoid trouble.  I know I drive a lot more polite and avoid situations.  This is because you must never be the aggressor or even be perceived as such.  Back down, go the other way.  Let the guy cut you off.  Your power is absolutely the last resort.

Congrats..

I notice that even when I drive I pay more attention to my speed, use turn signals and no more slow rolling stops at stop signs. I think I stop at them but my wife says that Im still rolling a little bit. I dont know who's wrong but Im not telling her she is...lol.. Grin
