    If you got made...... you should re-think your carry options.

    I had someone graze with an elbow the beavertail of my TRS over New Year's with no idea what it was.

    Thank you

    I was gonna post something like this. Iam with ya, ccw holders are not desperado's. This is a defensive carry forum, not iam a hot shot carry forum. I wish i had the time to write a three paragraph post about how got caught carrying. Thanks for the post it was much needed.

    Is it me? or does it seem like folks brag about "being made"?

    I would be ashamed enough to re-think my carry method.

    Yes good post. Carried everyday since 1992 and never been made. People need to get a better holster and/or learn how to instinctively pull cover garments down on a regular basis(especially after bending down or sitting).

    Accidents and slip ups can happen even to the most conscientious of us. We can all learn from others mistakes, I appreciate those that share their embarrassing errors. That said, 21years and counting with no issues.

    Im gonna play devil's advocate here. While you bring up a good point, I wonder, have you thought of the flip side? I look at those threads and see if there is anything I can learn from others getting made to avoid the same or a similar situation. I posted last week with a "got made" thread and speaking for myself, I was neither proud nor ashamed. I think maybe you should give lessons on concealed carry due to the fact that youve never "got made". I wonder, are you an alien? like ET? I ask because I am human and do make mistakes. Hopefully, by posting, someone may learn from my mistake as I did. Just my two cents, FWIW.

    I never have, but mistakes can be made. I once dropped my pistol out of the holster and onto blacktop. Not exactly my shining moment.

    Nerver been made CC'ing, that I'm aware of. It happens, it is very possible you have been made just aren't aware of it. I have been "made" while OC'ing though. Person noticed and made a second trip to make sure they had seen right, but never said anything to me about it.
