New CHL - weighty issues

2513 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  SELFDEFENSE
The state of Texas finally saw fit to get my CHL to me yesterday. Mailed the application 5/12, got the license 7/13. They said it would be 60 days, and they used it all. I figured I needed to carry somewhere, so I got out my Uncle Mike's slide, holstered my M40, and went for a walk. Anyway, the surprising thing to me about carrying was............the weight! After about 2 blocks, I felt like I was pulling a trailer on my hip. Now I'm wondering if I should carry my 380..........or if I'm just a wuss. Is this something you get used to, or does a better holster make a difference?

Found a heavy weight belt, it does make a difference. Grandfather Oak is building me a new IWB holster, we'll see how it does when it gets here.

Now if I can just get over the feeling everyone is staring at me.
