Today, just for kicks I strapped on my OSS .45 on my hip when I got dressed, just to see if my wife would notice. After about 3 hours I was feeling pretty confident b/c she hadn't noticed or said anything. Then it happened...she asked me to run to the store for her. I got paranoid. I figured everybody in WallyWorld could tell I was carring and I'd get called on it. I just got what I needed and got the heck out of there without anybody noticing. At this point I have to admit I haven't got my CCW yet (waiting on the next class next month) but I wasn't planning on going anywhere so what the hell. I could feel the weight of my .45 and it felt all of a sudden that I was leaning to my right with that weight. I wasn't feeling as confident as I did running around the house. I felt like everone knew my secret. Talk about a weird feeling. I am usually a pretty confident person, as a general rule, but not today. After I got back home from the store I took the gun off my belt and put it back by my bedside where it stays most of the time. Safe and sound. No harm, no foul. I plan on carrying the same gun after I get my CCW but I don't think I'll try my little "experiment" again until I actually have my permit in my hands...maybe I'll feel less paranoid then. I hope so anyway.
