    One can guide the other's arm a bit if they are reaching around your waist. My wife asked a few months ago why I had my permit but hadn't started carrying. I told her I'd been carrying for several weeks. She was stunned that she didn't know. She likes to hug around the waist, and I would just nudge her arm up a tad as she would reach around. She never noticed what I was doing. Now of course, she always checks to see if I'm carrying and looks shocked if I happend to be wearing something that I can't without printing (I.e., all the looser shirts are in the wash...). I'll be curious to see how long it takes her to notice the pocket holster after I get it made...

    I guess I have never really cared.. if someone is hugging me that 'deeply' and they happen to brush across the butt of my pistol then so be it. I bet most wouldn't even ask, and if they do ask I would blow them off. Tell them it's 'nunya'.

    People I don't know very well usually do the awkward hug with a pat on the back anyway.

That's one option, instead of the don't-touch-me route.

    I'm not a hugging person, but there are times that someone sneaks one by.

    This is the same thing I do. It works and keeps their arm on the outside of yours. You can guide them away from any sensitive areas.

    Practice with your significant other to get the technique down.

    I carry all the time and get hugged all the time and when hugged people don't know if it's a cell phone, a blackberry, or whatever. Nobody asks, either. Most of the time their hand does not go on my belt at the 4:30 position but they do, occasionally but nobody thinks twice about it if they feel some gadget there.

    So carry, hug all the people you want - and it's all no big deal and nothing to worry about.

    Carry a small weapon in your pocket. It is the way I carry about 50% of the time anyway. Hugs are no problem.
