    This is true. Only gun people will notice. Everyone else will think it is a cell phone, or end of the belt sticking out, etc.

    Open carry is legal and not uncommon her in AZ, but I prefer to carry concealed most of the time. But I'm not ultra-fastidious about wearing a loose shirt that doesn't prevent printing when I'm out on short, local errands. No one seems to notice, and I've got an AZ CCW... no worries here.

    I think we are spoiled. We commonly see OC in AZ, and I have never seen anyone appear to be alarmed. I too carry concealed but do not worry about printing.

    I conceal to give those who are offended the opportunity to make an excuse of not seeing it.
    Most people who have a problem with firearms don't want to see one so they blank it out if
    you give them that option. "Did that guy have a gun? Nah, I'm just imagining things"

    Duh!

    My reading comprehension is lacking this evening. I actually read the part about the full-length mirror & taking the shirt out of his rotation, but didn't get it until reading livewire & Big Dub's follow-ups before the head slap came...

    Not that I care too much, but I had to buy a new jacket last year. I really like OWB beltslides in the winter. But the front site was playing peek a boo with my old standby jacket. I carry both OC and CC. But I'm going to either go all out OC or cover it up and CC. Not looking to go half and half.
    I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!

    I always carry my SR9c in a Fobus OWB holster. I always have a untucked T-shirt over it and when it is a little colder day, a loose unbuttoned outer shirt over the T-shirt. In the warmer months, I just wear the T-shirt. It prints noticeably. If I look into a mirror, I can clearly see the grip impression.

    What gets me is that so very few people seem to notice or even care. I think most other people are so wrapped up in their own doings that they just don't see what other people are doing. I have been spotted as an armed guy a very few times. Almost always by other guys who appear to be carrying too and usually when sitting and the shirt rides up a bit. Usually I just get a friendly nod from them. So far, never had a problem in a store or restaurant at all.

    I do look for no-guns postings when entering some business. If there is a no-guns posting, I just leave. Apparently they don't need my business, and I have no interest in alarming anybody or trespassing.

    I'm always amazed how so few people have any idea of what is going on around them.

    Ever since Arizona went to ‘constitutional carry’ thereby dismissing the ‘I am special’ mentality, few seem to really care if they see a gun or not. Imagine if this were the case across the land whereby the only people wetting their pants would be from the west coast.

    I usually don't sweat a little printing. Of course, me being the skinny guy that I am, I can conceal a full size pistol in just about any position I choose with minimal printing.
