Welcome and congrats.

I strongly suggest you get use to carrying by doing so anytime you are at home. The reason is so it will become second nature to you. Then when your permit comes and you go out you will not be as self-conscious and tugging at you gun and belt and shirt. It's a dead giveaway. I wear mine 24/7 and if i have to go someplace without it, I feel funny not having it.
Good luck.

Welcome to DELCO. Check out the gathering thread downstate edition. There are a few of us that openly carry downstate and we like to get together once a month, hope you can make it.
