To answer your question, I CC'd everywhere upon receiving my permit. I don't think I took my gun off except for sleep. And that's still how I roll.

But I believe the first place I went was to my friends house, he and I took the course together and I went there to rub it in his face that mine came in first just to be a disturber.

His took an additional week to come in.

I think the first place I went to when I got my HCP was Walmart to do my "Wally Walk".

Immediately after checking the mail and finding my permit, my wife asked me to go the grocery store. I've never been so happy to go

I went to my buddy's shop where a bunch of friends were hanging out, just to see if anyone noticed. They didn't, so I was good to go.

It was October 1997. It was getting cold so wore a suit jacket all day at work. Boy was I paranoid that someone would notice. Noone did, and to this day It's been in my pocket all day every day. Except when I must go to to the Peoples Republic of Maryland, or to DC for a game or concert.

Many years ago, not completely sure of very first. My brother and I took the course on the same day and actually received it on the same day. Left the next day with or families to a reunion in Dallas area. I don't think either of us took it off the entire time. Our inner nerd walk and talk were definitely out.

Boy, that was a long time ago! I got my first CCW in Washington (state) in 1988; the first place I carried was at a restaurant (can't remember which one, at this point), but I carried as much as I could (and still do).

I had errands to run in town so I carried to Lowes, Walmart, The pharmacy and the bank. Felt a little uneasy about the bank but there were no signs saying that guns weren't allowed, so in I went. No problems.
