    Today I got my cobra nylon tactical carry belt and my galco king tuck holster in the mail. Ive had my ohio carry license for over a year now, but havent had the equipment to do it. Wow what a experience. I carry a g30 and I dont think ill go back to carrying unarmed.

    Congrats on taking that jump to carry. Without a good belt and holster it can be a pain in the side lol

    Sounds like a nice set up. Pack it around for a while and you will probably find yourself leaving it at home or in the car because it is not comfortable or it can't be concealed in the days dress. Then do what I and everyone I know does that carries full time, get a small thin gun like Sig P-238 that can be carried in a pocket. I love my Glocks, but they are just to thick for comfortable full time carry.

    I carry a concealed G17 routinely and don't find it too thick at all. I admit that I do prefer OWB to IWB, but that's for any gun.

    Awesome man! I can't go anywhere without my gun, and I hate it when I go somewhere that doesn't allow it :mad:

    I finally got my ccw in pa, weird feeling finally having my g22 on my side, are the jitters normal? Any advice? And are the badges a good idea or no?

    If you wore a CCW badge in Texas you would be arrested for Impersonating a Peace Officer!

    Congrats kjohnson! The guys who say you may become complacent and start leaving your gun make a very valid point. There are times when carrying can be uncomfortable, especially a weapon as large as a Glock.
    (commencing sarcasm) Since it is quite possibly the largest handgun EDCed by thousands. My heavens, it dwarfs pistols such as the USP, M&P, 1911, Sig P226, M9, if only there was a weapon smaller than the Ruger 22mag that would be EVEN MORE CONCEALABLE. What you need to buy is a .50AE cal ultra sub compact pocket gun. Conceal it between your cheeks. (because we all know the bigger the bullet, the farther it makes the bad guy fly when you shoot at him, whether you get a hit or not).
    You don't want to be THAT guy do you. Carry everyday it's possible, adjust it (subtly or not) as you adjust "yourself" on a normal dat to day basis. Heck carrying these around isn't always comfortable, especially in warmer weather, but doggonit we will carry them because WE ARE MEN!

    Ya, badges are straight up dumb as hell in any state, even where legal.

    That aside, I've found a holster that allows me to wear my 19 or 30 in just tshirt and shorts without printing.
