    Has anyone ever been spotted carrying?

    Ok, I have been wondering...

    Has anyone ever been spotted or accosted by a business owner, waiter, waitress, store clerk or any business person for carrying a concealed gun, where you probably shouldn't have been according to that establishments policy and asked to leave?

    I have never been "made" by anyone or confronted about carrying a gun, whether it violated their "store policy" or otherwise.

    My feelings are, don't break the law by committing a crime, but don't sweat the trivial stuff either.

    Concealed means concealed to me. When I first started carrying, I used to be real cognizant about looking for the little signs posted, but as time wore on, now I really don't pay attention whether a business has a sign or not.

    Just wondering if anyone has ever been spotted and asked to leave an establishment?

    If anyone answers YES, please be specific about the circumstances. Please, I am only interested in those carrying concealed. Not for open carry incidents!

    Nope, but I have seen other people conceal badly enough where I could see it but not your average Joe.

    Next time you have to get your measurements taken for that stinkin' tux you'll need at that upcoming wedding, find a way to remove your gun before they measure you're waist. I ended up just telling the guy that I knew my waist measurement and that he didn't have to bother.

    I never have. I make a fairly substantial effort every day to keep it that way too! (except for his month, as I am waiting for my new license)

    I really can't say that I haven't been spotted, but I have never been confronted and asked to leave anywhere. I do not carry in establishments prohibited by Tennessee law, but I do carry into some places that do not have proper signage based on Tennessee law. No one has ever confronted me in such places. I also carry into other places where the corporate policy is to follow state law, but if a customer or employee is ever made uncomfortable, the establishment reserves the right to ask me to leave (per the corporate head of security), but I have never been confronted/asked to leave there either.

    As I posted in CC guns, I(to the best of my knowledge) have only been made once. I was carrying my duty weapon (G21) IWB when the wife and I went vehicle shopping. I was made because I picked a cover garment based on the thought that I wouldn't be sitting down. It was my mistake. That said, the person who made me was a former Fed. LEO. Other than that, I haven't been made as far as I know.

    Not that I know of, but one time I felt as though I was being watched.

    No, I want to keep it that way!! In Colorado we have very few gun free zones. I did carry on a regular place that had their own rule against it. Never a problem.

    I was in a clothing store and immediately changed into some clothes I bought. Little did I know I had my mag wrapped up in my clothes, while waiting in line I accidently dropped my mag several people looked. I was so embarrased but everyone played it cool.
