Until I figure something btter I've been carrying my 4" Speed-Six OWB with a liht cover garment. Was working in the garage a few days ao and saw a guy parked across the street taking pics of my house and a few others nearby.
Walked over to discuss it with him, and he fell all over himself explaining that he works for an appraiser service. He went to get a card out of his organizer, and I sort of put my hand on my belt where I could sweep the jacket back easily just in case. He went white, handed me the card, stammered a few more things and drove off.
After he left I realized that looking "up" from his car seat he could see the bottom 1" of my holster as I was standing beside his car. I feel bad for scaring the guy, but I don't think I'm paranoid for checking him out, being armed while I did it, or condidering the possibility he was going for a weapon when he reached for his business card.
I will have to either carry IWB or wear a slightly longer jacket.

When I lived in Indiana a good buddy was a sheriff's deputy, I rode patrol with him, second shift, for 6 years, sometimes 5-6 nights a week, nearly had to kill a guy one night. I have seen the dregs of society and what they do, and I know it CAN happen to anyone, any time, any place.

I Must be Lucky
I guess I am very Lucky. When we start out some place my wife's only question is "You carrying or Me". 25 Years and counting! Wonder Why?

Vigilence, that's it. As in the vigil of life, up to but not including vigilantism.
Shouldn't it be load 'n lock?
