Quick Notes

First let me say thank you to all of you who have been reading this blog.  It was never my intention to try to be a blog that lots of people read, but I am really enjoying getting the feedback and seeing the numbers grow.

Secondly, let me say how gosh darn excited I am by the emails I have received on my Seven Day Carry idea.  I love that you all want to see it and that you don't want me to wait until Monday to start.  The reason I picked Monday to start is that my 4th of July weekend is nuts.  I will probably take pics and record my activities, but I don't think I will have the time or energy to post.  I normally write my posts at night after my kiddos are asleep and then I post later, usually in the morning before I head off for my day, but this weekend does not allow much down time.

Thirdly, I want to let you know that, That Texas Lady is having a holster give away on her blog and another give away on her FaceBook Page. So, go like her page and check out her blog.

Lastly, I want to encourage all of you who might be new to the gun world to find places in your area that you can network and grow with people who know what the heck they are doing.  The NRA is a good place to start, but I also look locally.  I belong to a regional shooting club for woman(I have not been to any actual events, but I have benefited from the conversation and socializing online with the woman). I also joined a state organization that advocates, strongly, for the gun rights of the fine folks of this state and keeps it's members abreast of all the issues that impact gun owners. Find one in your state and get involved.   Also, if you are brand spakin' new like me, get some training and then more training.  I am hoping to go to an advanced course in July. 

Again, thanks for stopping by.  You have given me a great joy!

I'm very excited to see your cover outfits :)
do you ever feel self-conscious when you're out carrying? I was pretty okay today but ran out to the drug store after supper and for some reason every time I moved, bent etc I felt like I was printing all over the place. I think it was 90% in my head but I couldn't shake it, and when I went to pay I moved my t-shirt when I reached into my pocket for my money and oops, there's the tip of my holster! *sigh* Fortunately the cashier didn't say anything and probably didn't notice but still. I felt like everyone in the entire store saw the giant neon sign above my head that said SHE HAS A GUN!!! lol *sigh*

When I first started carrying I felt exactly that same way. In the beginning I didn't want to go anywhere because I was afraid to go without my gun and also afraid to wear my gun...lol I just forced myself to put my gun on go out. I read on many blogs and sites not to fidget with it and just act like it wasn't there, but I always was checking to be sure it was holstered correctly and covered up. The more I carry, the more comfortable I become. I think what you are feeling is very normal and in time it will just become a part of you.
