    Keeping my mouth concealed

    I'm at one of our other branches today, in Arizona. A bunch of the guys here were explaining to me how Arizona was a right to carry state and how they all had their permits. I just responded, "That works for me."

    I didn't want to say, "Me too!!" and have word get back around to my branch. Nor did I want to expose how much I knew about their law, like the fact that they'll finally be let into restaurants that server alcohol on September 30, because no one from out of state would know that unless they had a reason to stay up to date.

    Not a bad idea. Not something I like general acquaintances knowing about. People talk.

    +1 on that - Concealed Carry is more than a visual thing.

    Exactly concealed carry means for me don't let people know you have a gun. It's the same reason I don't OC.

    No one knows I carry a handgun except my father. He is like me, he keeps his mouth closed. I have two very close friends, we have been friends since kindergarten. One of those friends has a brother on crack, when I go over to their house he(crackhead) tells me stories all the time of how some of the pplz he knows go about robbing and hitting pplz in the head.

    That's the best thing to do IMO. CC is a very personal thing and as such should be protected at all cost by the individual. If unsure how it'll be looked at or thought of by your peers. Best thing to do is play quasi neutral opinion and keep the sights off of you.

    I am sure he refers to a branch location of his employer. Some would call that a store but in many industries individual locations are called branches.
