...Went to my hometown to visit the folks and got a haircut and a shave. when I was getting out of my chair the barber i've known for about a decade now noticed the my buldge (between getting up and standing standing I print a little). When I went to shake his hand and pay him he pulled me and and whispered
Him: "Hey, you doing security now too or something"
Him: "Oh I noticed that thing on your hip"
Me: "Oh yeah, I got my license in January"
Him: "So what are you carrying?"
I suppose, living in the city that he does, it is no surprise he'd be good at spotting bulges... I was wearing a thinner/smaller polo shirt than usual. maybe I should stop wearing that one when I carry (or wait till I have my PM9)
Sounds like you have a cool barber. The chicks at 'Super Cuts' would have flipped out on me...

In reality, I think more people are curious than concerned. I'm sure he knew that if you'd meant harm, you'd have done it by then.

No biggie. Sounds like a good guy to have cut your hair.
In the small town old style barber shop that I go to, it is often the topic of discussion as all the barbers carry while cutting hair.
He is! I always go back home and get a haircut, he's the only one who knows what I likeSounds like you have a cool barber. The chicks at 'Super Cuts' would have flipped out on me...
About 2 years ago I was at my barber's shop when a man came in and became loud, obnoxious, and threatening. When my barber told him to leave he refused. I told him that I was a retired cop and would probably make a good witness at his criminal trespass trial if he chose to wait around until the nice officers got there to arrest him. He left immediately.
Since then I have taught my barber and her husband to shoot and they both now have concealed weapons permits. Yeah, they voted for Obama but I think I just about have them turned around for the 2010 mid-term election.

This thread reminded me of a Saturday Night Live segment I saw once. It was about "Pat" (unknown gender) getting a haircut, when the barber was finished and brushing Pat's shirt and pants off with his little broom, the barber sort of explored and lingered in certain places with the broom trying to establish Pat's gender. So next time you get a haircut and the barber lingers around your waist may be an indication he's suspcious whether one is CCW or not.
Helpful hints on pushing back and strengthening the 2A:
As far as the shirt goes, you kind of have to give up those under armor/ sport like polo and t shirts... I still wear the under armors as an under shirt between my glock and my body, but no more as an outer garment... at least not when carrying on the waist.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
