    Don't get so concerned about printing. I see cell phones and I-Pods that make a larger print, and most people will assume that's what it is.

    When you bend over like that any concealed weapon worn in that location is probably going to print.

    Now if you were trying to hide a Thompson sub-machine gun, that could be a problem!

    Hmmm... I didn't see an outline of a firearm. I saw what could have been a Maxpedition M-1, M-2, H-1 waistpack. Heck it could be anything.

    I'd call it a big honking bulge instead of printing. I know, for some it's splitting hairs, but to me, in order to be printing you have to have an obvious outline of a gun.

    The key here is "plausible deniability!" If you can say to someone "oh, it's my Blackberry PDA I use at work" and they go, "Oh, Okay" then you weren't printing.

    Do you guys think this counts as printing?
    As a matter of fact, I think I can see the outline of a Skoal can in your left, rear pocket!

    I only see an assault stone being openly carried and a large capacity stone feeding device that looks a little like a bridge.

    Despite all the attempts at levity the correct answer to your original question is YES! That surely does count as printing and you ought to do whatever it takes to achieve a more concealed carry situation!

    I say the answer is no to the printing question.

    Why are you doing that?

    Even if you aren't carrying that is the wrong way to attempt lifting anything of notable mass/weight.

    Instead you do this...

    Bending and lifting
    To prevent or ease back pain, follow proper form when bending and lifting

    Source - MayoClinic.com Health Library - Working during pregnancy: Stay healthy and productive
    had you used proper and most often advised form for picking something up you then would not be having wonder if your print is considered to be a 'print', which of course it is (!).

    This and many other real world life happening items as related to body movement and positioning should be practiced at home among your clothing prior to applying same as in a public space.
    This is not to be critical but more so to be of information for your own real world carry benefit.
