Re: Do you remember your very first time carrying after receiving your plastic?

The day my plastic came in, I was planning to go visit family. I recall checking the mail before I left for the afternoon and saw the envelope from DPS. I put my newly minted card in my wallet and put my pistol in my pocket (in a holster). It felt so foreign to me at the time. I ended up going to a park with my dad, my brother and a few of his kids. I was pushing and spinning them on different swings.

I do recall being hyper aware of what was in my pocket.
Did anyone notice the outline? Who knows? Nobody said anything.

After the park, we decided to go grab a bite to eat on the way home. My brother said he knew of a place that had good burgers. So we all loaded up and headed out. When we got to the place, I looked around for 30.06/30.07 signs and could not find any. I thought "great, I'm good to go". When we got closer, I saw the RED TABC sign. Told my family I'd be right back and had to do the walk of shame to lockup the "wireless peacekeeping device". This did serve as a good conversation with my family about some of the things LTCs need to be observant about in order to comply with Texas law.

These days, I use the Texas 30.06 app/website to do most of my pre-checking, before I even go to a location to eat. I still have conversations with the family about signage. Thanks SigM4 for bringing this up. Fun looking back on things and seeing how perception has evolved.
