Take some time, play with location and maybe a couple of holsters. Make sure it's comfortable or you won't likely being carrying long.
+1 on this above and I also found it helpful to spend some time checking myself in the mirror before I would leave the house to make sure that I am not printing, and I also recruited a few of my friends when we would go out some where to tell me when ever they "thought" they could tell that I was CC-ing (printing) and if so to tell me where "they thought" my weapon was located, sometimes they couldn't tell at all and sometimes they even got the location wrong .
Hope this helps.

Thanks for all the great advice!

I found a guy locally who makes holsters and picked up a handmade, leather OWB for my gun. It's really comfortable and it rides high. I did spend about 15 minutes in front of the mirror Saturday. You'd think I had a hot date or something.. LOL

I'm probably going to pick up a super tuck or similar just haven't pulled the trigger yet.

Again, thanks for the advice.

Kodiak.

I carried a blade or two up until my 21 birthday so the feeling didnt change much, I dont consider myself a paranoid person as much as a man who is well aware of his surroundings. I learned to make this a habit when i started carrying a knife as a teenager.

I've carried for years and have my second CHL in Texas. I put at least 50,000 miles on my little heaters and I feel naked without one of them. Wallet, pocket knife, piece......just like that every time I leave the house.

As stated above, please resist the temptation to confide in anyone. View the piece just like a pimple on your personal parts. It's personal, private and not a topic of conversation.

That is most prudent advice I wish I had taken it, but too late for that now.
