Default Where did you first carry?

When you first received your CCW (and I'm sure you were just as thrilled as me). Where did you first go with your new weight?

Guns don't kill people, bullets do.

The first place I took mine was to Walmart while doing some midnight Black Friday shopping. Tried to not stay longer than needed because some people are crazy that time of year.

I went to Kroger. I didn't really need anything. I just wanted to walk around freely with my extra weight just because. It took 8 weeks to get my ccw so when it came I took the first opportunity to use it.

THAT is commonly know as the Wally-walk. Everyone need to find out that you can carry a gun without it being noticed.

Pretty much. Mine prints like the new york times, but people are so oblivious that no one notices. My first civilian place was walmart.

I too went to Kroger; I think I was buying baby formula. Seems I have been doing that a lot this past year.

Mine is so "in your face" I might as well open carry. But like I said, people are oblivious.
