I've not necessarily been made, that I know of....,but....,I'm a Realtor, and there's been many times I'll be showing a house to buyers and either walk by a counter top sticking out, or stair railing too closely and ...., clunk!!! I've hit my firearm on it. I just go about my business and pray they didn't notice that distinct clunk and ask what the heck was that!

I have 'clunked' once or twice unexpectedly around people getting absolutely no reaction. I think most people don't have a clue as to what the just might have heard and therefore tune it out.

***** A few years ago, Virginia OEMS tried to put a regulation into play that banned any firearms from any EMS licensed vehicle except for on-duty LEOs; even provided an exemption for engines carrying "rope guns". Talk about ANAL! Virginia Citizen's Defense League (Second Amendment activist organization) sent a strongly worded letter which supposedly fixed the problem. Subsequently, the published regs still included the prohibition. Another inquiry to the state produced a letter stating that the regulation was dead and had been published accidentally. Right..........

(The old adage about asking forgiveness instead of permission comes to mind) So yeah, I have to ask myself, do I like my job and family benefits? Yes I do. In most situations, can I visit death and/or serious injury to my opponent without using a firearm? Yes to that too. I've had a fair amount of hand to hand training and experience in my prior experience in law enforcement, security and corrections, plus I have the most important thing: a willingness to get down and dirty to rescue my own can.
Another option: Join a police or sheriff's auxiliary.
I have heard that EMS in the UK gets assaulted a lot. Damn glad that hasn't become the norn here. Yet.

I've made a few folks. Mostly printing that only one who carries can see, but some serious printing and a few exposed grips as well. Most of the time making eye contact with the fellow CCer, and then a glance towards their beltline results in an "OH ***!" expression on their face since they know exactly whats going on. I'm normally thanked with a nod.
I know of once I was made, at wal-mart of all places. And of all people, it was a cop. I cant exactly remember what he said to me (something about my shirt), but it was pretty discrete, despite being the only two people in that isle around 03:00 that morning. I looked around, adjusted, said thanks and he was on his way. He never asked for my permit, didn't make a fuss about the gun, didnt even ask for ID. He did look familiar, so I may have met him before, either in a traffic stop or at the range. When I was leaving the store, he told me to have a nice night.
