    Got Made...Good experience

    So I dropped my car at Big O Tires and walked home. On my way back to Big O, I hopped the fence, my house is right behind the store, but didn't check to see if I was still covered.

    I went in and paid and noticed one of the employees outside talk to another employee and point in my general direction. I checked and found my shirt had ridden up and my sidearm was displayed, so I covered back up.

    When I went out to get my car, the employee who had initially pointed at me asked what kind of holster I had.

    So I told him I carry a SA XD SC 9MM in a Crossbreed SuperTuck, gave him a better view by lifting my shirt over the gun, then got in my car and drove off.

    Only way this could have gone better is if I hadn't ever lost my cover.

    I usually (95%) tuck my shirt in around my gun, but was going a bit more casual today.

    No big deal. I've been made a few times over the years. It happens. Don't worry about it, you are legal.
    I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    I have two holsters that I use.
    one is a De santis cozy partner, and the second is a no brand Italian leather single clip.
    I sometimes ,(although they are technically not tuckable) tuck my shirt in around the holster and pistol.
    Other times I just leave the shirt-tail untucked, but only a couple times have I caught myself exposed, before being busted.

    Michigan is open carry but I typically like to fly under the radar , and don't like confrontation or shrieks from panicky people.

    +1 on the DeSantis Holster...I love the way it conceals the weapon and once broken in I barely know it's even there

    I find my self with my CBST not covering my gun, now and again. Just my opinion but I think a partially concealed gun has less shock factor that one worn western style. I don't open carry to shock or frighten people I just want them to see a person with a gun in a normal enviornment and not as a criminal.
    In a gun fight, you can not miss fast enough, to catch up.

    Carrying in a good holster definitely helps, IMO. Most people don't even know there are things like in waistband holsters. They probably assume everyone who conceal carries carries "Mexican" style, in the front of their pants or at the small of back.

    Magnum PI style. Since we are giving them names.

    Don't sweat it. The guy probably carries too.

    I made a guy at work once and told him his shirt was completely up over his gun, he looked a little freaked out until I started talking to him about holsters etc and he realized I was just making conversation and not about to dial 911.

    Not a real bad way to be made. At least no one was freaking out.

    Just saying "Crossbreed SuperTuck" may have sufficed, since he asked about the holster.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    I think you lucked out. I've been to stores and restaurants where folks, especially the younger adults, would be more squeemish and perhaps contact the store's manager ... an ordeal I'd rather not deal with though easy enough with a CCW card.

    Having worked for years at the front counter of several automotive service repair shops, and even worked as a technician for a couple of those years...You probable weren't the only one carrying there.

    Glad no "MAN WITH A GUN" calls were made or anything.
