    So, you wear more cover garments than I do but I'm the one making great pains to absolutely hide the weapon? I guess I just don't get the reasoning behind your first post in this thread. If you don't care about printing or who notices because of the lack of legal ramifications and because open carry is legal, why the short sleeve button down over top the tshirt?

    My first morning on the beach to reserve our cabana for the day the cabana girl forewarned me of the Beach Bandits in St. Pete Beach. They hit bags and purses on the beach for money or anything they can sell or pawn. She told me not to leave anything of value in a bag at the cabana. She said a lot of women will take their rings off and put in a bag with ipods, cameras, etc. Easy haul for somebody that does it every day just watching to see who goes for a quick swim. Fortunately, I just happened to have some double zip lock freezer bags...what a coincidence. Not to keen on leaving it in a beach bag for a kid to find either. I'm just more comfortable with it being in my direct control.

    When you go to family events that involve hugging and don't worry about a thing.

    When I was seeing a guy that I knew had high SA AND was checking out my booty so I knew he was looking closer than most, and it took him all night to find it.

    Wife and I went out for ice cream last night. When we entered the shop, she asked me if I had "brought my gun" (she left hers at home). When I answered yes, she said "good, now I know where to sit".

    1. I was well concealed
    2. She was using situational awareness...(that part I liked).

    We often discuss SA and what if scenarios when we go out to eat.
