In my home state, NYS, the laws are very vague and being caught with a gun even with an unrestricted permit could cause you trouble, most cops know jack $hit about the law and feel that when in doubt, book 'em.

Anywho. With that risk in mind, I took my gun out (G27) in my desantis sof-tuk, not great, but for $25 bucks you can't ask for more. I carried with an empty chamber as I am still getting used to this but will one day rack the slide before heading out. Maybe when I get my crossbreed supertuk in the mail next week.

Mostly I felt pretty normal. I checked the gun while walking to my car when I left the hippy whole foods-like store in tone of the rougher parts of town, it felt like it was loose and i wanted to make sure it was there. a mistake i will try to avoid in the future. i came home knowing I exercised my constitutional right to keep and bear arms, this was a good day.

I live outside of the city, but I will be hiring a lawyer to get my carry business in the city. Though to put up nearly 3k for a 50/50 chance I'll get the permit though.

The state outside of the 5 boroughs is a little easier, more a pain in the ass than anything else.

As time goes on, you will "feel" if something is loose or whatever.

Be careful, be safe, and good luck.

I used my smart carry holster today, I loved it, so comfortable and the thing vanishes.

I remember my first day carrying I was nervous as I could be . I was carrying a glock 20 10mm and was sure everyone could see it . And funny enough they could lol the 20 is huge and prints like mad . But now I carry appendix at 12:30-1 o' clock and that will hide ANYTHING .

But regardless that first day I was going to the local gas station " oh **** COPS!!!! " I kept going lol By the third day I didnt even really notice I had it on me anymore. and now almost a year later its like putting my wallet in my back pocket only its a smith 627 pro .357 in my appendix holster. No worries.

Congrats sir. May you never need it.
