    I was just sitting out front of Jimmy John's downtown eating my sammich and watching people.

    I noticed a guy with short hair... black boots... khaki cargo pants... untucked polo shirt...

    ... and, yep a bit of a bloated right hip. As he passed, I saw just what I expected, a holster peeking out from under his shirt.

    It was practically a gun carrier uniform he had on.

    Pro-tip: buy a bigger shirt and stick with pants that don't have pockets on the legs.

    Not sure why this is a big deal.

    I think it was just some constructive criticism to anyone who CC's.

    But he needs those pockets for bear mace, tacticool special forces knife, multitool, handcuffs, flashlight, carabiners, black pilot gloves, mall ninja handbook, etc. :ninja:

    Well, y'know, there is a group that doesn't care much for OC, and another group that doesn't care much for CC, so it's not surprising that some people don't like semi-CC. I can understand the notion that if you're going to conceal, you ought to conceal.

    I'm definitely a half-ass concealer a lot of the time. It was this guy's choice of garments that really gave it away long before I actually saw the gun.

    Wait! I only have the kakis and the multi-tool! Is this how one becomes a "mall ninja"?

    Yeah, when I CC, I"m doing it for a reason... a purpose... therefore, when I CC, I do it all the way... no half-a stuff.

    Or they could be like me that don't like carrying a wallet in their back pocket, ect.
    Heck I usually have a paperback with me, and cargo pockets are where I prefer to put them.

    The only time I CC is when I have my gun in my cargo pants (not tactical pants) or cargo shorts.

    The rest of the time I OC like this.

    Note: When OCing like in the image above, it's important to keep this guy's blank stare on your face at all times.

    :pointlol: Yes, one must always walk around with the piercing gaze that says "I've got ice water in my veins."

    Yup. The police and citizens don't bother you because they assume that you are a Terminator unit. The blank face is always a dead giveaway. There's no point in trying to arrest or shoot you, because you'll just kill them, blow up their vehicles, and destroy their town. They'd rather you just went ahead and nabbed that little snotty-nosed kid you're after.

    Sloppy concealed carry. Or is that semi-open carry? I get confused about the difference.
