If you can afford to get your CCDW, please do it. In addition to no longer having to worry about things like "Is my jacket too long?", "am I fully exposed?", "can I go to the barber shop?", you'll get some additional privileges such as being able to penetrate that magical 1,000 boundary near a school. Finally, you'll be sending a message to our elected officials by adding one more name to the list of folks who really do care about their gun rights. Finally, and best of all, you can still continue to carry openly, but can choose to conceal when that might be better option (like going to a Regal cinema, for example).
Aside from the cost I can't see a downside to having a CCDW.
Practice makes permanent. Perfect practice makes perfect.
