First off I am unsure if this is the right place for the thread. Maybe the Mods can help out. So, a little background. I took my CHP class well over a year ago, received my permit in the mail three or four months later(I was slow on turning my app in.). Currently and at the time the smallest pistol I had in my inventory was a Gen 3 G19. I thought that it would be to large to conceal easily and I wasn't interested in buying a new wardrobe to make it work. About three months ago I was watching a video on youtube and this smallish girl showed how she could carry a G19 concealed and I figured if she could with her small frame than I could do. The only holsters I had we a Blackhawk Serpa and a Uncle Mikes OWB holsters. I regret not keeping better track of when I started carrying but for the first over a month maybe two I carried IWB with no holster(yes I know not the best choice) and depending on the shirt I was wearing, I carried at either the three to four o clock position or appendix carry. I had no issues with carrying this way I just cinched the belt down other than is was a little tight. A little over a month ago(I think) I bought a barely used Crossbread Supertuc holster off craigslist for $50, I have been carrying almost daily at about the three to four o clock position. Depending on where the belt loops are and how tight the pants are I will move it forward or back for comfort. All that being said I have not noticed to much of a difference from before in my daily life. The main differences are the I am very aware of my shirt and whether I might be printing or not. I try hard not to but I am constantly adjusting to checking my shirt to make sure I am okay. I will also check my reflection often to make sure the G19 isn't noticeable through my shirt. I think my situational awareness is slightly raised from before, but I feel that I had a really high situational awareness before I carried also. I have carried almost everywhere city parks, post office, multiple grocery stores, wally world, bimart, my son's school play ground, community college that I attend, a couple malls, Toys R Us, my sons baseball games and practice cub scout meetings and just about anywhere else a normal person goes on a regular basis. Even with my constant awareness and messing with my shirt I think I am mostly positive no one around me has seen it. I know my wife has a couple times at home(shes not happy about my decision, as we live in a perfectly safe place and in her mind bad stuff happens so in frequently unless you put your self in a bad situations all the time that, I am being paranoid and shouldn't carry because we live in a safe area.). From both our perspective I mostly agree with what she says about where we live and spend our time. However, we do attend church, we have kids in school and we are in the public often at any number of common targets for the crazies out there that want to do harm. To Be Continued.
