"Being made" and noticing others who concealed carry
I frequently hear folks on this, and other forums, comment that most people are too oblivious to notice that people are carrying concealed. In general, I would agree. However, there is another element to this. I'm moving to Oregon soon and was talking to my father-in-law about concealed carry there. He said he sees it all the time, no big deal. He said he notices most often at restaurants. Granted, he is a pretty observant guy. Nevertheless, I think we need to make allowance for the fact that our concealed weapons are noticed more often than we realize. I think there is a not-insignificant percentage of people out there who notice and don't care (not threatened by it, supportive of it, etc.). Just because people don't comment or react to a concealed weapon doesn't necessarily mean they don't notice.
