I went to a local "big box" type store the other evening to get some groceries and such. I was wearing Jeans with an undershirt and a white T-shirt over my OWB rig. I had noticed a little printing before leaving (if one was looking) but felt it wasn't too noticeable so I didn't change.
I wandered through the store with my shopping cart collecting the items I needed and no one gave me a second glance. I paid and left.
I start out of the store and there is a SD unit about 40 ft back from my vehicle stopped in the center of the parking aisle and my vehicle is the last in this area. It is obvious that the deputy is either on the radio or looking at the computer.
I walk around to the rear gate, open and load my stuff and then walk across and in front of the SD to return my cart to the cart rack. At this point I am feeling that the deputy can clearly see the printing as she is positioned on my right side. I pay her no (obvious) notice and proceed back to my vehicle. I get in, back up and drive off towards the deputy and the exit to the lot while giving a casual nod and wave.
That was it. No issues. But I did have the feeling that she was running my plate and personal info. I do have an SD sticker on the rear window as I do work with the department from time to time and am friends with quite a few.
I just felt a little self-conscious and I normally do not. Perhaps a dark, looser shirt from now on as well as one with a colorful/complex print.
Especially in a state such as yours, also being non OC
