    How to tell if someone is carrying..

    Dale00 posted this in another thread. I thought it might deserve more attention.

    Does anyone else have any links to other documents that LEOs or others use to train folks on how to spot someone CC? Might help us do a better job of NOT being detected.

    Thanks again, Dale00!

    All of those "carry conditions" could also be signs of having an injured leg or foot, having car keys in your pocket that may fly out when running, or being a generally unstylish person that shouldn't be dressing themselves.

    If as many people had guns as the number of people that fit the descriptions in those pictures...the world would be a safer place.

    I'll have to be more mindful of my swagger as I walk into WalMart next time.
    Interesting information though.

    That's really old and has been discussed in a thread from some time ago like a year or maybe even two ago.

    That image is one of a series of same that was featured in a story in the New York Times about one of their retired artists.

    All in all, they will never know for sure. That is, unless they do something stupid for one of us to have to use it. That is the beauty of concealed, they may think someone is CCing but will never know...

    I always ask... "Is that a gun, or are you just happy to see me"
    Note: This post may contain misspellings, grammatical errors, disorganized sentence structure, or may entirely lack a coherent theme. These elements are natural to the process of writing, and will only add to the overall beauty of the post.

    That's not something I think much about; I am more concerned by the general attitude that could be a threat, for instance a knife is almost undetectable ...
    The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

    This is just a guess on my part, I get the feeling this was produced sometime ago. In today's world, how many people are carrying pagers, cellphones, and MP3 players? I am figuring these items will cause the same effect.
