I carry off duty all the time. When I walk or jog I go with a .357 revolver in a fannypack. It is comfortable. But for everyday concealed carry, I preffer the Glock 21 .45. It gets heavy after a while but I am used to it. In the Army you get quite used to carrying a gun and you are drilled constantly on safety. It is a great responsability. I have never had to pull my gun on no one. I tend to stay out of trouble; if something feels wrong, I walk the other way.
