    Hey TCT: I was preempted by Chief with his brief reply, as shown above. My first thought was what do you do for a living and is this your business, which you sort of imply. If not I would suggest you get back to work and not worry about other people and their CC problems. Also found it interesting that you somehow feel the BMW is important---makes me wonder a bit about why this whole thread has been initiated.

    Never liked bumper stickers myself. Always considered them tacky. Pretty much feel the same way about anything printed on a shirt. Ball cap logos not an issue for me for some strange reason. However some folks like to advertise every trip they have ever made to a National Park, convention or rally. Others choose to lets everyone know what bourbon they drink, what guns they prefer and what their political views are.
    Power to them I say. It doesn't hurt me.

    I have more problems with the recent phenomenon over the last generation of the desire to criticize those who like to do these things.

    What is wrong with Don't Tread and NRA bumper stickers on cars?
    What would you have done if he handed you his coat?

    I would only be concerned if he was dressed in gang colors or looked like he could not afford to be driving a series 5 BMW.

    Nothing wrong with bumper stickers on cars, but a BMW is far more than a mere "car".

    I always liked the guys that tug their shirts down every couple seconds. Non stop.

    I think I shocked the gun store clerk when I asked to see an assortment of 9mm that were heaviest. I came out the new owner of a Walther P99 AS which when fully loaded weighs an even 2 pounds. Back in the day, I used to carry a Colt Trooper .357 wheel gun in a duty holster and it also weighed in about 2 pounds. I found my accuracy was best with this weight.

    Of course I carry in a Tucker gun leather holster and with a Beltman extra stiff gun belt.

    And yes, when I was new to carrying I fussed with looking good before exiting my vehicle.

    He should consider wearing heavy duty suspenders. Perry suspenders that attach to the belt might help.

    The first time I carried concealed I went to Walmart. I got out of the truck, checked my gun, checked my jacket, looked to see if everything looked normal. Then went inside. About every 20 steps I was feeling the gun, pulling down my jacket, and wondering if it would fall out on the floor or someone would see it. Pull down the jacket again. I've learned to calm down since then. But I must have looked pretty funny to any LEO or experienced carrier at the time. I've been shooting all my life, but carrying concealed is a new skill to learn for me.

    OP - The guy you saw is probably on this very forum telling everyone how he has never been made, despite carrying a SAW on his hip.

    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    You drive a 5-series BMW and work in a professional environment. Yup - Perry suspenders are the answer. Sheesh.

    That would make James Bond look like Larry the Cable Guy.

    Exactly. I always check to make sure the mag is seated on a regular basis, the shirt is covering it...old habits. 25 years as a LEO...I can care less who knows I am carrying or not!

    If it was socially acceptable I'd wear a yellow velvet sign saying I've got a gun leave me the f*** alone...o.k. just joking.

    As James exited the BMW at the Hôtel de Paris, he gave the Perry suspenders a tug to make sure that the Walther was secure. Satisfied that it was, he walked across the street to 16 rue de la Platière and went inside.

    Yeah, it could happen.
