I see a lot of posts about CC and OC and the correct way to conceal. I live in the Cincinnati Tri State area; Bellevue, KY to be exact. I very often carry in a Galco OWB with a T-shirt pulled over because on short trips to the convenient store or groceries I just don't feel like going deep cover. In Ohio as well as Kentucky OC is legal and printing is not an issue for those that don't care. I know that some here are of the opinion "concealed means concealed" that's fine! For you.
There are times when I want deep concealment and times I want to open carry.
Just because I'm printing does not mean I'm concealing poorly. It just doesn't matter to me all that much. AND..... I am within the law!

Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
Never be ashamed of a scar. It simply means, that you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you......
I would tend to agree with you on this.
Some people in states where printing seems to almost warrant a ticket for brandishing,(by the local jurisdictions)with a false interpretation of what the definition means, seem to get uptight about this matter, and I can see their point, but the issue is more the state and how they treat the matter.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

You won't get a lot of debate from me. If OC were legal here I would certainly do so. While a skin-tight Under Armor shirt outlining a firearm so well one can make out the serial number from five paces is a bit of a stretch for "concealment," legal is legal and no one should have to answer to anyone else for it.

Within the law or not all tactical advantage is lost when other can see you are carrying and you don't know who they are
Carry however you like. The most important part of concealment is being at ease with your carry rig. Whether you OC, CC or poorly-CC, if you are comfortable and nonchalant about your rig, most people with just pass over you without a second glance. As long as you are legal, who cares?

Poorly concealed means just that, no more, no less.

Nope, it depends on the definition of concealed. Hidden from casual looks is concealed, unnoticeable is concealed. Just because you MAY print does not mean you have poorly concealed. Concealed isnot invisible. I too am tired of the C. A. N. T. Nazis jumping on people like they are stupid for not having the gun invisible. I frankly think OC has a greater TACTICAL & STRATEGIC value. Surprise is only good for offense/attack. I prefer to not fire my gun at another person.
