    At this time in our society, when there is a movement to display to society in general that normal, lawful people can and do carry firearms without incident......

    Why would one choose to either not use such an encounter as a teaching moment, or be downright rude, is beyond me.

    I personally do not fret if someone "outs" me. Its a firearm, you aren't kidnapping anyone.

    When it comes to concern over printing, over clips, over anything to do with legal CC, you say nothing--period/end of story. You were given the permission to CC, you do it legally, you do it responsibly--it is no one else's business.

    Never had anyone notice either. What type clips do you have? Mine are the J-hook that goes between the pants and the belt then hooks.

    I've only ever had one person ask about the belt clips. I was really, really just not trying at all to hide anything that day. He just looked at me kind of sly and asked something like "What are you carrying?" The look on his face told me he was cool so I just went with it. Told him what I had and he told me about the equipment in his camera bag that was strangely unrelated to photography...

    I respond by using leather belt loops on my IWB under an untucked shirt.

    No one has ever mentioned it to me, but when I started wearing a Supertuck my wife's comment was that I looked like I had on a back stimulator unit. A good answer if it comes up.

    I did switch out the CB metal clips for thinner plastic ones, I was concerned the logo on the metal clips would be more noticeable.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    Re: HOW do you RESPOND?

    I've never been asked either. I don't carry at work, per policy, but I do have my holster on all day.

    Are you referring to the holster that's in your avatar? What kind is that?

    The one in my avatar was made for me based on my own design, discussed here:The Perfect Kydex IWB Holster
    Mark is adding both a reflexive and non-reflexive sight version to his line-up. I believe his current turnaround time is about two weeks.

    This is the other one, which is harder to come by:

    When I carry concealed, I cover everything related: pistol, holster, spare magazines. Better than answering a question is to make sure the question is never asked.

    It has never happened to me I have one clip for a IWB holster and my shirt is always covering it.

    I usually don't wear shirts tucked in, so that's not an issue.

    When I do wear tucked in shirts, I use a different type of holster.

    If I wore tucked in shirts on a regular basis, especially at work, I would buy a holster with Velcro clips and a Velcro lined belt.

    Since tucked in shirts are a rare occurance, I use a different holster.
