If you have a CWP or are planning on getting one I recommend you study the statutes. As usual, the best FL advice is to buy the Gutmacher book.
Welcome from Tucson!
My first day in Tucson nine years ago I saw an old rancher wandering around Fry's with a .44 magnum strapped to his hip open carry. My second day had a load of stuff stolen from our car. Welcome to the wild West, eh? :)

Whoa, guys. Hold up. While yes, AZ is an OC state and worrying about getting charged with brandishing is low, rethink some of what we deal with here.
Phoenix covers Indian territory in some of its spans and in some areas it is illegal to OC and can be arrested for it. For example, OC'ing at Scottsdale Pavillions is expressly prohibited. Whether or not they would slap you with a brandishing or some kind of charge like that - I have no idea. And, if I recall, Peoria has some rules against carrying but I'm not sure. Maybe that's Glendale. The point is - CHECK YOUR LAWS. You know where you live and travel to. Goto handgunlaw.us and look at the carry restrictions based on Indian land. Call the local PD and ask them, too. It won't take but five minutes and it could save you a lot down the road.
Back before concealed carry for everyone was passed in Alaska, a known "nervous nelly" called in that someone was carrying a handgun. A city cop responded and slammed the person carrying against the wall and gave him all sort of trouble, even after finding out the person carrying had a CCW.
We get a lot of rookies here, and a lot of them act like they are from San Francisco.
This sort of thing is probably going to be an ongoing problem in random areas, even in areas with sensible gun laws, so no one should be surprised.
Instead, I was just VERY embarrassed.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
wear a little bigger shirt, or different type.
Concealed means concealed. Do whatever is necessary to conceal the weapon. That is the whole idea, no one should know that you are carrying.
