Everyone thinks that I am carrying in my fanny pack when it mostly on my ankle.
But, that is about to change here soon since I'm getting back to the point where I can carry IWB once again
I got found out in a funny way. The wife and I were at the Golden Aspen Rally in Riodoso, N.M. last month. At the chuck wagon dinner we were seated at these long picnic tables waiting for them to start feeding. This guy who is associated with the rally sits down beside me and tries to scoot me over. You should have seen his expression when he hit my .45. Some times people find you out and there is nothing you can do but smile. Needless to say he moved. The Bar J puts on a good feed and show.
If not, then you are lucky it was he who pointed out the weapon and not someone that didn't know you. There may have been police involved and you may have had charges brought upon yourself. In this case you would be the dufus.
Stevetim - Oh yes - I maybe didn't make that very clear. It would have been way different otherwise !!!! Neither he nor anyone else could have seen my piece, without trying to look! I don't even print.Did the guy know you to carry before the pharmacy trip?
He is a gunny and I know him well - but this was an occasion when I was not too pleased with him He is one of not many, who know I carry. In fact he had barely started to push aside my shirt when I intercepted anyways - with a very firm right arm.That's correct spelling Wayne!! Well, in English anyways LOL!waiting in pharmacy queue

Had to train my wife to not reach around my waist and feel for the gun when she was wondering. She thought she was being discreet, but patting and grabbing my hip and the grip of my pistol isn't where I want my wife grabbing ;) Seriously though, to anyone with half an eye could tell what she was doing. She did this sorta nervously a few months ago when saw some questionable characters at the zoo. I don't know if it was obvious to anyone else, but it sure was to me. Now she just gives me the look or says "got it?"
I'll keep my freedom, my liberty, and my guns. You can keep the change.
Brings back a time this happened to me -- I'm talking to a friend of ours and my wife is talking to some other lady. I have a sportcoat on.
My wife had been talking about how I'd lost about 20 pounds (of course I hadn't heard any of their conversation).
Unfortunately, without thinking, my wife grabs the side of my sportcoat and flips it back to show this other lady how I no longer have my beer gut. There's my .45. The lady goes nuts.
I'm trying to back up and figure out what's happening. Thankfully, a couple of guys who were behind the now nutcase woman start talking about "nice gun, who did the grips" like it's a natural thing to have a gun.
Once the lady sees that nobody cares, she calmed down, with my wife's help as well.
My wife knew the instant she did it that it was a mistake - and she carries, too -- but sometimes this stuff happens.......
I think I could have been carrying a giant rattlesnake and the lady would have been less upset. Some people really can't deal with firearms.
