    I get it, and think it's a fine idea. Nobody's supposed to know your concealing anyway so who cares if it's not real?! It's not like he's going to be jerking it out hoping to fool somebody. Such vivid imaginations!

    Hey if that's what you want to do then great go for it. I wouldn't do it personally because like a lot of people said I want something that is real when I go out in public. But if you want to do it then just do it, don't let other people discourage you.

    The blue gun (non firing facsimile of a real gun) is not a firearm and is not considered a weapon under Florida law.

    The OP is not practicing, he's pretending.

    It's like this. When my daughter asked for a pony, us living in the city, I told her 'hunny, you can have a picture of a pony'. She was happy (she was 5).

    Don't worry bro. I carry my full size Glock on my hip with shorts and a T-shirt everywhere I go in Tampa. I've probably been made a few times but I really don't care. It's concealed.

    How have you posted 433 times here and never carried before? Interesting.....

    Whatever. I'm done trying to justify myself to y'all.

    So it wouldn't be illegal to carry since it's not a weapon, right?

Hopefully you can replace the blue gun with a real one soon.

    I am and I do. I treat it just as if it were a real gun (meaning I'm not like "it's a fake gun so who cares who sees it" I do my best to hide it just as I would a gun.)

    Kind of like I do when I do dry fire exercises.

    Good for you. As my permit is coming any day now, I often wear my CBST to get used to it and to form the leather to my body. It is a big adjustment and you are on the right track.

    What I find odd is that the OP has a blue gun but not a real one. Aren't blue guns expensive? I don't know what they cost but aren't they over $100? Who has a blue gun other than some sort of school or agency?

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    My blue gun was only $50 bucks. I got it as a training tool + I'm going to spray paint it black and use it as a prop for a costume I plan on wearing to a local comic convention next year.

    Sometimes you can't win for losing around here. More power to the OP if it makes him feel more comfortable. As far as getting made, I OC a good bit and don't seem to get made very often. Don't sweat it.

    Not much different than some of the folks that carry empty for a while, or an empty chamber. Might as well be a blue gun.

    $50 is a good bit less than I thought. IIRC I looked at a blue Glock a few years ago to help train my wife and they were pretty pricey, well over $100.

    $42 here: Glock 21 Blue Training Gun by Ring's Blueguns

    plus some for shipping I guess. A weighted version costs more. One could always use it for retention and disarm drills, although for the latter I prefer a real pistol (unloaded of course). Simunition would be ideal but is expensive; especially for this purpose.
