    I always CC, either I carry IWB in the summer or a shoulder rig in the winter. I recently bought a OWB holster to further my options for comfort during the winter when I wear a coat and it needs to be broken in. So the wife and I packed up and went to Target this morning, and about 5 minutes into the shopping, I find myself getting really hot. I started unzipping my coat, and was just going to leave it at that, but I then decided to just take it off and let it all hang out.

    We were in there for a good 45 minutes or so, and not a single confrontation. I heard one lady ask her friend in a soft voice, "you think that's a real gun???" I kind of chuckled in my head. Well I had such a good time coming out of the closet (so to speak) that we decided to go eat at a local mongolian grill, and again, I OC'd. Only got a few oddball glances, but no one said anything.

    So thanks for all the info you guys have posted. Because of it, I felt comfortable enough to deal with a confrontation and subsequently comfortable enough to OC. Though this wont be my primary mode of carry, atleast I got the first one out of the way, and am up for doing it again if I need to.

    Out of the closet? Lol! I'd say something about a broken cherry, but that might change the rating of this thread.

    Your first time is your most awkward. Sad that we should be made to feel like we're doing something wrong. I commend you for taking the step. It is a leap of faith. Ya gotta always know that you are right and those who would make you feel like you were doing something wrong are indeed doing something wrong themselves.

    Congrats!

    Keep spreading the wordwith positive action!

    Ok,I'll throw one:celebrateto ya.

    Respectfully,

    Commodore

    Open carry is just a way of life.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
