This is a discussion on I "made" another CCW'er yesterday. within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by RSViper This guy was in his mid 50's, had a glock hat, one of those "badges" that are discussed a the top ...
I wear a 5.11 vest most of the time as a cover garment for my OWB with my P220 in it. CCW's see a vest and immediatley think "oh, he's carrying." So do LEO's. What I did was go to my local camera store and bought a sew on Nikon patch. Everyone knows that Nikon is a great camera. I sewed it on my vest above left pocket, and now most people who see it think it is a photographers vest. I like the vest, except that it used to scream shoot me first or I'm carrying. Now not so much. BTW, if someone should ask me about photography, I've done enough of it to discuss it intelligently. Concealed carry not only means cover, but camouflage too.

This guy was screaming "I am carrying!" It goes to show how stupid people are... unfortunately for him, bad guys will spot him from a mile away as a target to eliminate!
I see no tactical, personal or good advantage to this type of obviousness. Shame on him! Poor cover garment if you could see his holster.

I was at the dealership waiting for my car service and I saw this guy with a vest and I immediately looked more closely and sure enough, there was his PPK peeking out ever so slightly. Personally, I have no use for the vest anymore since LEO’s hone in on them too. I simply don’t want that kind of attention, regardless of how squeaky-clean I may be.
