    It makes sense. When you first start carrying you feel like you have a neon sign "I'M CARRYING A GUN" over your head.

    Wal-Mart always has people in it no matter what time it is so it's a good place to see how many people notice. It also has stuff up high and down low so you can reach for stuff and see how to get at both up and down without announcing what you're carrying.

    Then, after you figure out that you could carry a full shotgun on your hip and about 2% of the people would even notice, you can get on with life and just live.

    Mr. Glock speaks wisdom.

    I OC frequently. Even with a full sized .45 on your hip, most people simply don't notice.

    Congrats on the carry license!
