    The "Robot" walk would also give you away!

    Due to a few twinges I normally have an asymmetrical gait. I have to 'load' one side with a 45 to even it out!

    Can we get a chart on how to spot an OCer?

    I have been carrying for a long time now and I think my gait has become more asymmetrical when I am not carrying then it is when I am carrying. I carry a Sig P226 on My right at 3 o'clock. The only bad habit my wife or I have noticed is that I sometimes use it as an arm rest while stinding in line at the store.

    I feel for both of you. Janq, for remembering that car, and bubba for knowing the difference between the two.

    But, welcome PCSmith.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    This is such a ridiculous bunch of crap. How do you know that the person doesn't have one leg shorter than the other or has a bad knee? Or even just a cramp?

    I paid attention to my own gait while walking through the mall last night. Even with a gigantic .45 on my hip, there was no difference in the way I walked.

    I did however, notice that bit about covering the weapon while walking close to someone who I was keeping an eye on. (Yes, I profile. You look like a thug, I'm going to pay more attention to you than the little old lady on the other side)

    LOL, I do that.
    You may now carry on with your absurd non-directional bantering.

    I can see gait and arm movement being a means to spot you if you DON'T have a holster. That's alot of shifting in the waistband or swinging in a coat pocket that people subconciously try to control.

    No carry permit holder I have ever spoken with, seen, or heard of, carries without a holster, other than pocket carry. I don't fear walking in front of somebody watching my gait or arm movement.

    Some interesting comments to that info on the blog. I was surprised to read as many positive remarks about carrying concealed. Some of the negative comments were laughable. One guy stated that if the laws were changed so that carrying a gun had a mandatory jail sentence that most criminals wouldn't arm themselves.. He didn't understand our perspective of arming ourselves for self-protection - he referred to carrying as "escalating" the BG encounter situation. Sheeple

    Sorry if a got a little off topic..

    I have that habit too, carrying at 2 o'clock IWB makes it easy to do even with my smallish gun. However, when I use it as an arm rest, I'm usually resting my left elbow on my purse, with my hands clasped in front of me, so it doesn't really stand out.

    As for assymetrical gate, I have a bad hip and when it is bothering me, I have a hitch in my gate. My husband's bad back acting up will do the same thing to him (and he never carries).

    My mom had hip surgery and they made one leg 1/2" shorter than the other. She now walks around in circles.

    It's all a moot point in today's society/age. People carry cell phones, knives, tools, and other electronic devices on their waist. A bulge on ones side can be anything.
    May we never forget those in uniform who protect us night and day in lands far away. And those in all wars who paid the supreme sacrifice in defense of our country. May God Bless our Troops and First Responders.

    I don't believe your comments are off-topic. I read the same post and shook my head while thinking...
