    There is also that FBI report about spotting hidden handguns too.

    With today's proliferation of mobile phones, Palm Pilots, etc., it is far more likely the things being "protected" in pockets like the diagram above will be those, not a gun. 8)

    I don't walk any differently, or "protect" my gun, or any of that. *shrug*

    And, I'm more likely to get out of the rain because I don't wanna be wet, not due to a gun. :roll:

    I like the "Hand Rests on Gun" graphic.

    Open carry avoids those "tells," but so does a quality holster & belt combo.

    Interesting graphics.

    I think I usually don't have any of those give aways except for maybe a bulge.

    I have to agree with Asbrand:

    While at work I carry my big leatherman, flashlight, and company cell phone, when my shirt is untucked it bulges way more than even my full size pistols. :)

    Whoo. I was worried for a minute. It looks like that graphic only applies to snub-nosed revolvers.

    I think the best thing to do is to wear a pistol on each hip to equal things out.

    The only down side is that people might think you have child bearing hips. :?
