    Are you ever worried about revealing?

    Ive got a m&p9c and am using the IWB Intruder holster.

    Below are default pictures on the website. Im just concerned about the hooks. Does law enforcement consider that revealing? I do wear my shirt UN-tucked.

    It depends on the state you are carrying in. i don't worry about printing or revealing; sometimes I even open carry. If you are in IL, I would worry about carrying period, since it is illegal outside of your residence or business (it may not even be legal there).

    In California, it is illegal to OC so the firearm cannot be exposed. Exposing the holster clips is not against the law here but when I carry, I don't expose any of it.

    Nope. Carrying a full size gun, I probably print all the time. I carry daily, but no one has ever noticed. I have co-workers who have been oblivious for years. ...Also, it's legal to OC in GA, so no worries there.
    In IL... yeah, you might want to worry about printing, let alone revealing, lol.

    I don't care here in WI. I am legal. I wear the shirts out so the belt clips don't show. Those belt clips are kinda wide. Most of mine are smaller. (I unfortunatelty have a cabinet full of holsters )

    I don't worry about it. OC is legal in CO (most places, at least) so I'm not concerned if I print or reveal any part of my gun accidentally. I'm certainly not worried about people seeing my holster or holster clasps/hooks.

    Look. A loaded 30-06 rifle on a rack in the back window of a pickup truck when it's not deer season is prima facie evidence for the game warden. Visible clips on the outside of your belt or pants is subject to conjecture.
    At certain times, and under certain circumstances.......law enforcement considers everything (walking, talking, breathing, etc.......) "revealing" in ways. They are of course highly trained to make assumptions according to criteria.
    You wear your shirt however you see fit.
    I've been thinking Illinois was a less than lethal state. I must have been misled. Carry on by all means!

    Nothing wrong with a cabinet full of holsters. I am almost on a first name basis with the UPS/Fedex man.

    I don't worry much because I primarily pocket carry.

    If my EDC comes out of my pocket there is probably something else to worry about at the moment.

    When i first started I did, however now I use an OWB holster most of the time and if I don't tuck my shirt in I will show every once in a while.

    It would also help if the guy was wearing a black belt that would hide the clips too, also they have different clips like J hooks that are even better for concealment purposes

    Well yes, I guess its not obvious that I know I can't/don't carry in Illinios, I do visit Kentucky and Missouri alot though so those would be the two states I am concerned in.

    I use a trimmed down CBST with velco clips that are concealed behind the belt. Combine that with AIWB, I have 100% concealment. (No exposed clips, no grip printing and NO deformed looking bulge.)

    I wouldn't worry to much OP. 95% of people are clueless anyway. Even if they do notice anything, you can always say the clips are used to hold a "Life saving device" in case you are faced with a life threatening emergency.

    I wear the crossbreed supertuck with the XD service model (full size grip with a 4" barrel) as my daily carry. I always tuck in my shirt regardless if it is a T-shirt or dress shirt. My clips do show on my belt (especially a brown belt). I carried for over 6 weeks day in and day out before my wife noticed the clips. She had no idea I was carrying. I have yet been questioned by anyone about the clips or if I was priniting. Only people the conceal carry will notice the clips and put 2 and 2 together. In my opinion, everyone else is pretty oblivious.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't Kentucky and Missouri OK with open carry?

    TN has a Handgun Carry Permit law, not a CCW...they fought to keep the word Concealed out of it, just for purpose of open carry if so desired. Everyone in the know...will know what the clips are anyway...just like the fanny pack on a guy screams GUN. LOL. Throw on a loose button-up shirt and leave it un-tucked.
