I have a XD40 sc carried in an OWB holster at 4:00. Didn't feel to odd although I was pulling my shirt frequently. Then I went to checkout. Wallet in back right pocket, a bunch of people in line behind me. Really stressed about getting my wallet out without revealing. Guess I'm going to have to carry my wallet differently.


Congratulations on getting your license!

I wouldn't psych myself out too much. I've worn my pistol around the house for the past couple of months and my wife has yet to notice (if she did she would've said something). Translation: people probably aren't paying as much attention as you might think.

U don't need to wait long. Biden was quoted as saying it will be in place by the end of January.

When checking status this morning I received a web page that says "This Texas.gov service is temporarily down for maintenance. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please check back soon."
Is anyone else seeing this page?

Got home and the wife has plastic. :hurry: I'm still stuck in background check. My paperwork must have landed in the slow :banghead: lane.
