    Next time you're at the grocery store just look around at the people and see who are themselves looking around and those who are focused on shopping.

    Thats because they all know whats in there, and its an everyday partof their own lives so it no big deal. In addition, you are eating lunch with them... so you must be a friendly sort.

    Due to Florida tropical heat I use all kinds of holsters, including a camera (says Nikon on it) fanny pack, that holds a small point and shoot Nikon camera and my G26, and a belt clip bag made by DeSaints that holds my P3AT 380.

    Sure it screams tourist, but for the most part, no one has ever asked me if I had a gun in there.

    I did try to stop an purse thief armed with a knife once, and when I was giving my statement to the local PD, the officer presumed my belt clip bag was a gun, and asked why I did not use it.

    So I guess the belt clip bag is a given gun.

    The only time I use a fanny pack is to carry my 1911 while riding a bike. I was given a camera vest by an actual photographer and it still hangs in the closet. I guess I could wear it and carry my Canon digital............

    The only time I use a fanny pack is when hiking, biking, or exercise walking. No one on the trails I use has ever seemed to notice although the thing screams gun. I'd expect to be "made" in public places if I were to use the fanny pack in that way.

    Anytime, anyone sees a grown man with a fanny pack, they know they are packing. Might as well OC when using a fanny pack!
    I carry a gun because cops are too heavy!

    That is too funny! Pretty nervy of the young lady to ask IMO. I would have acted like what are you talking about?

    Yea, you might have asked her what type of gun she was referring to and that you didn't appreciate her taking that much interest in your privates.

    Of course depending on her age, that might have gotten you into a bit of trouble and possibly on the watch list for sexual crimes.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    We ended up talking a little a bit. She asked if I had other holsters and if so how many. I told her I have about six and that what I use depends on what I am carrying and how I am dressed. The way the conversation was going I think she might be getting her dad a holster for his birthday.

    Seems harmless enough but I personally wouldn't answer questions from strangers regarding whether I carry or not or concealed carry in general.

I told her " Sometimes, but I carry a lot of stuff in it." She said the reason she asked is that her dad has one that looks just like it and that is how he carries his gun!
    That's what will happen with fanny packs sometimes.

    Living in South Florida, I sometimes use a fanny pack, and I am too old to worry about what people think.

    I know some people here will say that makes me a target; I don't really believe it, have never seen it documented ... and I'll steal a quote from another member sig: "Criminals look for victims, not opponents".
    The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

    Fanny pack equeals weapon. Kids know it, adults know it and crooks know it. I wrote at length about that a few months back. ONLY time I use a fanny pack is when I'm carrying all my gear to the gym on the way to work, and even then its rare.

    Jon speaks the truth. Here in Orange County NY, alot of fanny packs....some even have, dare I say it...guns inside. Also, keep in mind...most people are clueless.....WE are more alert....we wonder if someone s carrying because we know what to look for. Most people are just lost in their thoughts of $6 lattes and worrying if people like them ( as people, not lattes).....
