Today was my first day wearing my IWB holster. I am still waiting for my CCL to show up in the mail but I wanted to be comfortable with the holster so I went unarmed. While at work a co-worker came up behind me and said BOO! while putting her hands around my hips instead of the shoulders and back like most people would do. Her hand pushed right on the top of my holster and hip - right where my gun will be.
The first thing through my mind was "Oh crap she would have felt my gun" a split second later "*lots of swearing* my gun could have gone off" then after thinking for a second I realized that the trigger guard was large enough for this situation. I was caught off guard by this, it never even crossed my mind that someone I work with would get their hands so close to me in this way without warning. My color code for the day = Blindingly White.
How have you dealt with situations like this? Nothing like this was covered in either of my 2 CC classes, and I know it doesn't seem like a big deal but it just occurred, so it is still a big deal to me. Any tips from similar experience? Can you think of other situations like this that I will most likely encounter while I am carrying? Thanks for the help.
