    Not so concealed carry at Home Depot

    Since I normally wear a white shirt and tie at work, I don't usually carry after work unless I have a second shirt to change into.

    Yesterday I decided to just pull the shirt out and strap the gun on underneath it.

    Nobody seemed to notice, even the salespeople I talked to.

    When I got home and looked in the mirror, you could see the gun and holster quite clearly through the shirt.

    Unless there has been a change, Home Depot is not anti gun.

    I don't think MOST states concealed carry laws address the issue of printing. The weapon just must be covered by some sort of garment.

    I don't think its the legal aspect, but the PITA potential.

    TN is CC or OC, but what does that have to do with anything, the OP is from Utah.

    What difference does it matter if I print? It is very hard to tell what someone is carrying under there jacket or shirt. I have a CC permit and I don't believe there is a law saying I have to be one or the other as long as I have a permit to carry. I really could care less if people know I am carrying. I only carry where permitted, so whats the big deal??

    The OP appears to be in UT. OC or CC is fine here....not surprised that nobody cared.

    I agree with you.

    "Utah allows unlicensed open carry of a firearm that is at least 2 actions from firing. For example, a semi-auto may have a full mag but the chamber must be empty. Permit holder may open carry as well, but their firearms may be fully loaded. "

    Open carry is legal in Tennessee only IF you have a HCP or a permit from a reciprocal state.

    It's probably a good thing you were dressed for work rather than sportin' your colors.

    Ummm...DRAW...AIM...ready to fire. Forced to carry an empty chamber is BS.

    As far as good taste goes, I'd much rather see a holstered pistol under a "see-through" garmet than a colostomy bag
