    I've been "called out" for carrying.... when I wasn't.... so , some people aren't too good at it and were rather embarrassed.

    Sneak up behind them and fire a round into the air; if in the next second you have a gun stuffed in your face, they are carrying!

    My NRA hat should be no problem then!


    Come to think of it -- I need a Team Glock hat!

    Talking Chart is on how to spot a newbie to CCW

    Carrying a Kydex clip on holster with a small "light" pistol (think Kahr PM9) just offset of the zipper; or a S&W 442 with Barami hip grip in the "traditional" strong side location defeats some of the training, so would "Thunderwear".

    Neat to see the pics. and info.

    Many cops I know have said they look for a "pat" from someone who is concealing a weapon..knife or gun, etc.

    By "pat" it's a casual hand either covering briefly, or actually touching or confirming the location of your concealed weapon. if a knife clipped in the pocket, a simple touch will confirm it's still there and not hanging out. A gun in the wasteband, same thing.

    Pats are usually done when the carrier is being approached by a cop on foot or in a car. It's definitely true to..I pat my knife and gun all the time and don't even realize it until I notice that cops look for it and that I did it. A beat cop friend of mine in a heavy crime city says it's almost always reason for an elevated reaction or unsnapping when approaching "garden variety" type people on the streets and the pat gives them a good second qualifier condition to assume they're doing something illegal. "Pat" profiling FTW!!

    I'm not at all concerned about bulges on individuals with CCW permits, but would rather be able to sense the 'brain bulges' (brain farts) that make some of these recent 'wackos' go off the edge...

    The more gun bulges, the better...

    I prefer to think that everyone I meet is armed. That doesnt mean I plan to draw down on everyone before they do but the fact is, if you dismiss someone as not being armed and ignore them, that's going to backfire on you one day and catch you off guard.

    If you treat everyone as possibly armed and a possible threat, it keeps your situational awareness keen and your mind working on action plans.

    While that chart may be somewhat good, what do you do if you enter a room and everyone is seated? Or they are standing around and are very experienced at concealing a handgun and do not ďpatĒ the pistol to check on it.

    When I worked for the Fedís I was taught that when I entered a room, to take note of anyone who was situational aware. (Today referred to as code yellow) If the meeting went south, those people where the ones to consider armed, and posed the biggest threat.

    As a leaning experience:
    The next time you go out to lunch; Look around the room, before you sit down; then when you sit down, in your mindís eye, id the citizens who paid attention to the new person entering the room. What they were warring and would it cover a concealed handgun.

    yep, I always take note of who takes note of me when entering room, walking through store, etc; this leads to me getting "that feeling" about some folks sometimes, at a minimum it makes me watch them closer than others

    My boss always wears a jacket/flannel shirt (even indoors) when he's carrying. We were talking about CC the other day and I gave him a quick shot at 9:00 (lefty) and sure 'nuf - it was a good laugh as we were the only ones in the room.
