I don't use mine all of the time, maybe 50% of the time. It is probably the most convenient carry method I have.

To the OP, at least that someone who "outed" you is familiar with CCW through someone in her family.
I got outed last week at my son's karate school. The place was packed because it was test day, and my 3 yr old daughter sits on my lap, puts her arms back and hits the butt of my Kimber. Then during a rare lull in noise from the floor, she says in her piercing but cute girlie voice "Daddy is that your gun??" I shushed her as quick as I could, and tried to look normal. I'm not sure if anyone actually paid attention or not, but no one mentioned anything, but a discussion on not to talk about Daddy's gun ensued after we got home.

For all of ya'al that still think you can throw a fanny pack (why in the heck to we call it a fanny pack as it never goes on the fanny) with your roscoe inside of it and not be made, ya just aint listening. Gang and prison intel has constantly made one thing clear, the bad guys who live in states with concealed carry DO look for folks carrying fanny packs as a potential source of a weapon. Be smart, but dont be delusional. It is not a great method of hiding a weapon from the wolves. You might get by the sheep, but you will not avoid being targeted by the true hard core wolves. Is it really worth the loss of your life? That of a family member who happens to be with you for the convience of throwing it around your waist because your to lazy to use a proper concealment system?
If your in bicycle shorts and on a 15 speed bike, then ya it might work. If your running around in running shorts and a t-shirt with sweat dripping off your face, ya it might work. Other than that, you might as well wear a t-shirt that says "Concealed Weapon Here".
Come on if it was hard to hide a pistol, than I'd accept it, but its not. I've done it for 22 years with everything from snubbies to MP5 machine guns and it can be done.
Ok back to my cage.

I guess the "don't ask, don't tell " rule applies here.

There was a "FED" carrying in a fanny pack went to get his oil changed,I believe he was in the dallas Tx. area,anyhow he gets out with his fanny pack and the oil guy asks him what kinda gun he's carrying.It seems the establishment hires People on parole from prison and while inside they learn how to spot people who might be carrying a concealed handgun,and a fanny pack on a guy or a photog vest usually means gun.Even criminals go to school,so if they think your packing they will either pick another victim or get the jump on you and disarm you before you can react,that's why SA is important

I saw a lady at a Walmart up north from me with a fanny pack on. She was dressed casual, but I could see from her demeanor that she had pretty good SA. When I walked up in line next to her, she took a step away and eyeballed me. I didn't say anything, but she looked at my cart... can of break free and box of Winchester 9mm for my friend at his range. She smiled and relaxed. As we exited, I broke the ice with, "know any good ranges around here?" She said she built one for her and her family behind their house. Ends up we were parked right next to each other, so we spent a few minutes talking. She had a Kimber Ultra II, and asked what I carry. "What makes you think I carry?" She said... "Oh, you don't?" I replied with..."Thats what everyone else is supposed to think...Glock 23"
She laughed, we said our goodbyes and as she rolled off, she had a "Keep honking, I'm reloading sticker on her bumper.
And of course, "fanny pack" just won't cut it in the UK at all. "Fanny" is slang for that part of the female anatomy named after a cuddly feline...
Are there any Virginians reading this who use a fannypack? What do you do when entering a restaurant that serves alcohol, where concealed carry is illegal? Can you switch to open carry with a fannypack by unzipping it and leaving it flopped open?
