    Secret Service Printing

    You all have probably seen Michelle bouncing around on her $375,000 vacation. However, take note of her two agents.

    There is just no way to hide the body armor + the mini subs when walking around wearing a polo shirt..

    They stick out like a sore thumb.
    Just as well to have worn their suits.

    I can't stand that woman. However, I guess that's neither here nor there....

    Regardless, they might as well open carry; at least then they wouldn't look like idiots...

    Sorry, the point is lost on me. Being able to spot their bulges is a big deal because?

    A dark Hawaiian shirt would do a much better job hiding them.

    LOL.. Well, it's certainly not any secret that the secret service carry. As mentioned they already stand out but sometimes it's easier to forget the guys are packing so much when they at least TRY to cover it all. Heck, if I were on vacation as the president's wife I'd probably want a break from the suits and guns too. At least they tried to look casual.

    The United States being a free society has always had their Presidential protection details carry concealed weapons with a low keyed visual presentation to the public so as not to resemble other nations with less freedoms who tend to have their armed protection details carry their sub-guns openly providing more intimidation.

    It's more about public image. Yet, anyone who looks can usually spot at least some of the protective detail. And yet, there are probably a couple you'd miss when looking.

    The SS could switch to KelTecs P-3-AT's, those hide very easily in a pocket?

    How could you not notice the 6'3" very fit, shaved head white guy with sunglasses? Spain isn't exactly loaded with 'em.

    My first impression looking at the picture was "who is that woman, and why is she surrounded by bodyguards? Is she a pop singer?"

    I'm thinking that if security was more subdued it would be more effective. Many people probaby wouldn't even notice HER. But when she's surrounded by obvious professional gunmen, then clearly she's famous for something.

    Agents working a detail have very little leeway in how they dress. On any given day, they cannot choose to wear a suit; a polo shirt; jeans; a Magnum PI shirt; etc, based on their own tastes or choices. So, when your options are limited, you do the best you can.
