    ...on my little girl. I didn't do as she told me to do tonight; so, she told me to turn around and put my hands behind my back. :shock: :shock: :lol:

    I think I am rubbing off on mine too. Today at Target someone was was pulled in diagonally to one of those parallel handicap parking spot. They were not handicap but were instead using it as a drop off spot - man letting his spouse out. I am not sure whey he didn't just drop her off at the sidewalk but that is neither here nor there.

    I saw the whole process take place - pulling in, dropping off, pulling out - and said to my wife, "You have to be kidding me?" My 3 year old looked up at me and said, "He must be a moron."

    After we stopped laughing we figured it out. Every time she has heard me use that "term" has been in relation to someone's bad driving.

    The trip also served another purpose for me. I successfully CC'd under just a t-shirt today for the first time. Usually I layer up and am very paranoid someone will notice. I am confident the only person who noticed was a man and his daughter walking through the parking lot as we got out of the car. He only noticed because I adjusted my rig when I exited the car. I wasn't sure he noticed until I saw him in the store later and noted that our eye contact was a little longer than normal for a stranger.

    What's got you worried? I'm coming to find that most people really don't notice or give a hoot, at least not enough to say anything about it.

    ya I think the average self-centered preoccupied yuppie or soccor mom would not notice the bulge in the small of your back or on your hip and put 2 and 2 together. They're too busy on their cell phone or bribing their kids not to throw a fit in a public place. I've never been asked if i was cc'ing but I have never had anyone bump into me yet or have my shirt creep up and expose my pistol to anybody.

    I often CC with just a t-shirt covering it. Then again, I'm a big guy and my gun doesn't make much of a budge.

    The other day, went to Home Depot for some wood for a project we're working on. As I was reaching for the wood, my shirt rode up and exposed my Makarov completely.

    Not a single person noticed...except my wife. 8)

    What has me worried? I guess I just don't want to have to deal with anyone's stupid questions if they were to notice. Someone's signature on here says, "no I'm not a cop, yes it's loaded, etc." My wife and I raised 2 assistance dogs for folks with physical and mental handicaps. The dog in training went everywhere with us - restuarants, stores, work, etc. EVERYWHERE. Georgia is one of the states with great laws concerning dogs in training. They are afforded the same access as working assistance dogs. Of course, not everyone knows that. Everytime we went somewhere for the first time we had to explain the program, explain the law, etc. My line was something like this, "No, I'm not blind. Yes, he CAN come in here. No, he doesn't bite. No, you can't pet him. Yes, it is hard to give them up after being with them 24/7 for so long. Yes, that is a great story about YOUR dog but can I shop now?"

    I am short (5' 6") with a medium build. I have had trouble finding just the right pistol/holster combo which will conceal easily. Yesterday, the rig I wore dug into my side and was quite painful at times. I recently ordered a Comp-Tac CTAC for my Glock 30. I also just ordered a DeSantis Nemesis pocket holster for my Glock 26. We will see how they work out. I look forward to winter wardrobes for concealment. I will likely just use a paddle then.

    I agree with the previous reply which states that most people are too busy on their phones, etc. to notice the bulge AND put together that it might be a gun. I was thinking yesterday that my bulge could just have easily been a cell phone holster.

    I'm about the same size and have found that my PM9 in an ankle holster is about the best thing since swinging doors. I also just stuff it into an IWB behind my hip with my shirt tucked in and have not had a single public comment.

    I recently bought a Fobus ankle for my G26 and it works well with jeans but in this heat I am usually in shorts. I think the pocket holster in cargo shorts will work well. I pocket carried a Galco IWB in cargo shorts the other night and it was OK but of course the belt clip added quite a bit of width. Once the pocket holster arrives I think I will like that.

    I am not sure why you are worried either, if you are legally ccing. I am a relatively small guy.... 5'4" 147 good size muscles and I conceal carry all the time under a t-shirt, infact did so this morning to go eat breakfast. A couple times I think my weapon was visible but I do my best to make sure it is not. I cced all day yesterday under a t... went to walmart, bass pro, America Classic, Ace hardware, publix. By the way I carry Kimber Ultra Carry II Covert. My holster is mid size and I carry in the small of my back.

    I am legal so am not worried for that reason. I just don't want to have to deal with someone else's ignorance. I would rather just be anonymous and avoid the trouble.
