embarassed and disgusted with myself
This is a discussion on embarassed and disgusted with myself within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I really screwed up today.
I had to attend a funeral today so naturally this threw me out of my normal clothing routine.
I usually ...

I would have apologized to the salesman. Did you?

Oh yes. You have no idea.

I wouldn't have... he didn't do anything wrong or illegal. If the salesman didn't like it, too bad. If someone is offended by seeing my weapon, they can deal with it. I make an effort to keep it covered, but hey, s**t happens.

Stuff happens, we learn from it and we try to not let it happen again. Sounds like an honest mistake that I bet you won't repeat! Nothing and no one hurt, that's the best part.

I too see no reason to apologize, knowing me I would probably make a joke about it and go on. No need to beat yourself up, you learned a lesson now go on.

I agree that accidental exposure of a pistol in the USA is probably now illegal only in WI and IL (ask Chicago Bear Tank Johnson). I say "probably" because there could be some state law unknown to me that includes a criminal penalty.
So just consider it an embarrassment to try to forget; the embarrassment is the worst part of this incident. I have no doubt you will never do this again!

Not a big problem, as long as you learned something from it!

Oops. Gun without a holster. Yeah, the funny thing about wisdom is that it exists on the far side of experience. Consider yourself wiser.
Suggestion for a good pocket holster for the 642: Mitch Rosen Pocket Softy. A mite expensive, but it's very capable, lasts forever, is comfortable, and works every time.
While I haven't always been able to do it, I try very hard to pre-fit every clothing combination that will be called upon to do carry duty. That gets around the risks of the clothing not fitting, not supporting the 1.5" belt, "printing" while worn, etc. That includes ensuring compatibility and function with the desired mode of carry with that garment (ie, IWB, OWB, pocket). Of course, there have been a few times I didn't double-check a garment prior to purchase or wearing, but it hasn't yet bitten me given that an alternative was hanging right there on the rack in the closet. Short of doing is this way, I can't imagine how to ensure that a given combo won't work properly.

IMO At least its a valuble lesson learned harmlessly, At least you did not find yourself in a scuffle and reach for your firearm only to find it was half a block away where it fell out .
Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .
Criminals are looking for victims, not opponents.

As others have said, it's a learning experience.
Besides, if we give you a hard time, Murphy's law will bite is in the rear, and we will surely have it happen to us in the near future.
