That's how I felt at least today at the mall. I stopped in to grab a couple things and realized my glock 23 was printing really bad every time I took a step forward.. Now I could care less about a little printing when you cant make out if its a cell phone holder or a multi-tool pouch or something like that if you know what I mean. This was the entire glock handle and rear of slide outlined through my plenty loose enough shirt. Desantis intruder hybrid just does not have enough *cant to work for me at the 3:30-4:00 position. It was deceiving to me because when I stand up in the mirror it seems to hide it very well. I didn't consider that wouldn't be the case when walking at a brisk pace..
Ok..... so fix it.

Take it easy. We've all blown it. We're not here to tell you what a moron you are.
As Glockman said, you found a problem. Address it and be done.
Heck, I thought I was gonna see a grenaded gun from an overdose of Red Dot.
Switch to a 1911 never had a problem with printing.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

I have a Desantis intruder hybrid & made new clip holes to give me more cant! I also have better holsters now!

You may have been printing, but I'll bet no one noticed but you. Did you get outed by anyone? Not to say do nothing, find a combo that works better for you.
I shoot with a pistol and a Canon. We must all hang together amigos, or we will all hang separately. NRA life member.
no one is looking at you.
Sad, even with a gun printing, no one looks at the OP...
Actually, you found a problem and now will correct that.
When I read the title, I thought for sure you were going to have a photo of one of those rhino guns...

While you may have known you were carrying, I doubt others did. 99% were to wrapped up in their own little world to pay attention to someone around them.

Now you can fix it before anyone notices.
Easy fix - using the arms, tie a sweater around your waist like women do.
Just have to be careful.I've carried for quite a few yrs., and it's happened to me a couple of times.No one is perfect.Like they said,fix it,and that's that.
Like others have said, not the end of the world.
Figure out how to fix the problem and carry on. Adjust the cant, wear a bit larger shirt, stand up straighter so there is more loose shirt on the back of your waist, or slow down a bit.
Oh, and like others have said, I am sure no one noticed.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

My nephew who works at sunglass hut ( the reason I was there) waited for a few people to clear out of the store then asked " what kind of gun Is that " etc while half smirking so yes I did basically get called out. Cops aren't friendly to CCW holders here and neither are the 1000 soccer moms walking around the mall.
