    The florida law uses the word "concealed" to mean not ordinarily "VISIBLE". It even allows for accidental (Read: unintentional) exposure, as in; You are reaching up for something in a store and your shirt rides up, thus exibiting the weapon briefly.
    Printing is not against the law, unless its very much actually outlining teh gun as to give anyone the impression that there's a gun there. Example: Tight tee shirt over a 1911 OWB.

    Just remember this: concealed means concealed.......

    The wording in Florida law is ".....ordinary view..."

    FL 790.01:
    (2) “Concealed firearm” means any firearm, as defined in subsection (6), which is carried on or about a person in such a manner as to conceal the firearm from the ordinary sight of another person. [My emphasis]

    While an officer may have issue with an UnderArmor shirt tightly stretched over a blatantly obvious concealed firearm, it is still "concealed from ordinary view." Who knows, it could be a pistol shaped cellphone.

    Wasn't there something in the paper a little while back about some guy that got arrested for that?

    I don't recall all the details, but a guy in Ft. Pierce was concealed carrying and allowing his firearm to show and was charged with "open" carrying. The whole story was flaky and I don't know the outcome.

    Come to think of it, I think it was discussed here. If I recall, it sounded like he was an idiot wearing a skintight muscle shirt stretched over a large automatic. I'll have to do a site search and see if I can find it.

    But under currrent FL law, that in itself is not a violation of the prohibition on OC'ing. I think this was more of a case of the carrier and the LEOs both trying to make a point.

    I think the word "printing" should be illegal.

    Printing Money and Disney Tickets are Illegal. Gun printing is not.

    Printing in not really addressed in FL Gun Laws, but why would I want to 'poorly conceal' my firearm.
    I don't worry about printing because I make the effort to conceal effectively.

    i love it when people say this, thankfully here in NV this is what "Nevada Law is"
    "Full or partial concealment (such as a purse, jacket, etc.) is considered "concealed carry" and is discussed below"
