    Talking Serious "printing"

    I carry my 1911 around 4 or 5 o'Clock in a CompTac IWB (kydex formed to my gun). The other day I'm with the wife and kids at a local bookstore. I need to do a long (1.5 hours) work call. So I sit down in this large leather chair while the fam does it's thing. After the call I get up, retrieve the fam, and head to the door. We pass by the chair and there is the imprint of my gun pressed into the back of the chair.

    You had to look for it and it probably disappeared the next time someone sat down, but it did get me thinking about ways my gun will print that I haven't considered before.
    We're all in favor of reducing violent crime. It's just that pro-gunners have a method that is proven effective. Anti-gunners don't.

    Talking OH NOO0000, Not the Chair!

    HAahaa... That's Cool.... I'd like the see peps reactions to (IF they would even noticedNOT) the chair!....? Hey Coder, as long as You are still "Concealed" IMHO... All is good!

    Definitely something to remember & think about, eh..... Maybe even,> to start moving forward in your chair,.. +\-5min. before getting up, so as to help "unprint" said chair.... Maybe even alittle.... Streaching<sp> alittle twisting action, acouple elbows to the back of the chair.

    Thanks for the Heads up too Coder, What else We need to start looking out for!

    Be Safe,

    Peace Maverick

    Sounds like my muffin top. It's getting an imprint of a Glock 19 magazine. I'm afraid that my doc appt next week is gonna include "what's that mark on your skin?". It's like a tatoo.

    That's a good one. It would be kind amusing to get a "look" after you got up and someone else saw it. But I doubt they would.

    Haha, I've had it happen before. It's definitely something to think about, but could be anything from a wallet to a cell phone.

    Another thought, say you are in a dusty environment like an attic or warehouse and you brush up against something that leaves a dust print of the weapon. This could potentially happen with body powder and makeup as well. And you'd never know it if you didn't look.

    Another good reason to wear darker colored shirts for sure.

    Shoot, I made a quick stop at the local mega-grocery store that has a couple of off-duty cops working there to get a "loaf of bread". When I went out I wasn't wearing a holster so I stuck my min-Glock 33 in my dress pants pocket and ran out. I didn't think anything of it at the time but when I was walking out the store from the checkout line I looked down and there was a perfect outline/print of my Glock on the outside of my pants. I freaked and put my hand in my pocket thinking that would hide it but it just looked like I was a guy holding a gun in his pocket!

    Heh, nobody including the Cops noticed even though I thought it was a really obvious "print".

    Oh well it was kinda hard to carry it was a King Size (What else would The Duke get!) and trying to keep the Glock from pulling my pants down (I'm kind of skinny and all)

    Little safety tip (Or embarassment tip!) don't post while talking to the wife, in bed.... Glad to give everyone a chuckle!

    Just a little happy tip from your Old Uncle Duke.
