    I am thinking most who may have done this, just cover it and keep going ....happened to me couple times and I don't make a big deal out of it...

    To me if its a natural move to cover it and keep going. most people won't get excited.... easier for me to say that out west, than it would be back east.

    But then again, may have to be extra careful with all the new gun laws here in Colorado and the anti-gun hype on hi alert.

    Never.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    Yep, but OC is legal here. Just went about my business like it was no big deal, because it isn't.

    Carry one long enough and you will expose your carry gun if you realize it or not. To me exposing that you are carrying concealed also means that your wardrobe is printing your gun, adjust your holster, etc. So with this included a lot of people have exposed the CCW at one point or another.

    Open carry is legal in VA, so it doesn't matter here . In States with no open carry, it's called reckless display of a firearm. Accident or not, the law doesn't have an exemption for "I didn't mean it". You could be up s%it creek witout a paddle if someone sees it and wants to make an issue out of it.

    Mn has a carry permit. Does not distinguish between open or concealed.

    In this forum, that's like asking if anyone ever accidentally let a fart slip.

    If (when) it happens, just don't react to your slip. Nonchalance works well. Most people don't notice, 3/4 of those that do will probably assume you're a cop, and about one half of one percent might actually say something to you.

    this.

    even if your state doesn't allow open carry. accidentally exposing your CC isn't OC and also isn't necessarily illegal.

    I have no idea, no one has ever said anything to me, and I don't look in a mirror after I leave the house.

    Yes. I was had a coat on, but it was real cold so I went back to the car to put on a sweatshirt under my coat. Took the coat right off in the middle of the parking lot to put on the sweatshirt. Not until I was all done, that I realized I completely exposed by firearm when I took of my coat. Luckily no one (I think) noticed.
