First time carrying in public

Well recently I carried a pistol in public for the first time. I have been interested in concealed carry for personal defense for some time but have been stationed in Europe for the last three years so I never got a good chance to do so.

I was on my way to the range and needed to stop at the local Wal-Mart to pick some odds and ends for the wife. I was carrying my full size 1911 in a Ghost holster from Raven Concealment Holsters. With it being so cold here in interior Alaska is that just about everyone is wearing large coats so I did the same. My normal winter jacket was more than enough to conceal a full size 1911 worn outside the waistband.

As you might imagine I was a little apprehensive at first thinking that everyone was staring at the gun shaped bulge in my jacket but soon was reminded how unobservant many people are. Looking back I’m sure no one noticed but it was definitely a great learning experience.

I plan on carrying my Glock 19 daily but I’m still waiting for my holster for it to come in.

Why don’t you leave me a comment talking about your first time carrying? Or maybe maybe some advice for people new to carrying a gun for personal defense.

Keep up the good fight
