Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
In the 3 times I have been asked, I just smile and say it is my gun. Not one has made any further remarks. One asked me about my CHL and how she could get one.

Seems we all have similar ideas.
Unless they see it, then it's "emergency equipment".
If it makes you feel better, I went to the Dr. to have him just read some test results for some life insurance and while I'm sitting on the table, he starts squeezing my joints for tenderness (as a symptom) and reaches down and grabs my ankle "What's that?" Ummm, that's a Smith 642 in a Renegade. He didn't make a big deal out of it, but they do have a no CCW sign now. Not an issue since that sign isn't worth the paper it's printed on.

I live in a small town. I am liable to bump into someone such as an old friend,teacher or family at anytime which may lead to a hug. Rarely do we go out to eat at a resturant that I dont see someone I havent seen in awhile. I also have a 6yr old that likes to hug and wife is pregnant so will be carrying child on hip. I have found in those situations Smartcarry or other appendix carry work great. Of course I dont really let it bother me much I carry a leatherman and a blackberry so whats one more buldge. I would like to add a +1 to Biker's quote.
Since I front pocket carry 90% of the time...if anyone is putting their hands that close to my firearm, they better be a cute leggy blonde.
I just tell them its a firearm for my personal protection. The people that "make" me by touching me are friends or family and know me anyway. Sometimes, they just know exactly what it is and say sorry for touching it.
On another note, if anyone does touch it and I am not hugging them, I will smack their hand away VERY quickly and be ready to defend myself.
I keep my cell phone close to where I carry; it's helped diverge attention more than once.
