    I'd take a page out of the childhood playbook. Sister tells everyone I've packing, I tell everyone she has cooties. ( or some adult version of that )

    +1 to Riana. I don't offer to hug but if I have to I use a "sideways hug". Turn my weak side towards them, reach around their back with my weak arm, and clamp my strong arm against my side/weapon so they can't get their arms around my waist. I'm big (6'4", 225 lbs) so most folks, particular women, hug me just a little above my waist but can't reach around to my strong side so this works for me.

    All this could have been avoided with a high five instead of a hug!!!


    Seriously though,
    You do have to get creative when you interact with other people who don't shrae your vision, or would be suprised that you are carrying at that particular time.

    As Thumper says, Don't ask, don't tell.

    Cool

    Go shopping with your girlfriend for a quality IWB holster and gunbelt so she has a decent fitting carry rig.

    AIWB carry which is what I prefer allows a "church hug" that means no lower frontal body contact and thus no handgun contact.

    A hug with your weak side arm only will allow your strong side to be slightly turned away from the one being hugged and keep them from contacting your carry rig.

    If you are on very friendly terms with the one doing the hugging then they probably know you carry already and it makes no difference.

    Well, you have little control over what other people are going to do with the information once the genie's out of the bottle.

    However, your g/f should have warned her sister of consequences at the same time she informed her it was her gun. Then, if she blabbed to everyone, I'd have no compunction in taking SIXTO's advice in Post #17.

    You live, you learn... I'm keeping Sixto's idea in the back of my mind for future reference, if I'm ever in a similar situation. So far, I've never been found out I was packing.

    It is tough when carrying and having to deal with huggers. And you can expect many at a funeral. I agree with the other couple of posters that you need to have a technique so that you protect said weapon with your arm, causing them to go high with their arms.

    As for myself, if I see a woman is about to hug me then I quickly reach out with both hands and grab their boobs. This usually averts them from hugging. Although shocked they never know that I'm carrying. I usually then say that my wife told me that they had implants and I was just curious if implants made their boobs feel different.

    Sister - "Oh, what's that?"
    GF - "A medical device."
    Sister - "What kind of medical device?"
    GF - "It's personal, and I wish not to discuss it. Thank you for understanding."
    Sister - "What do you mean personal? What is it?"
    GF - "OK, if you insist. It's an automatic timed release intravenous antibiotic pump to treat my highly contagious inflamatory herpes simplex 47. I hope you didn't get it from hugging me."

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    Performed something akin to this earlier this morning with the soon to be mother in law. (this was about 3 1/2 hours before I read this post.)

    I've mentioned b4...practice your carry such that you pre-empt things like a hug--you keep your elbows close in to your waist on your gun side and this forces the other person to hug higher on your body...if your gonna carry in public there is a lot of thinking ahead before you wear it outside your home. i am not refering to jsst the shooting part either.
    Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.

    It's that dang colostomy bag, but don't worry, it's only half full of it. Did you get some on you?

    I hug with my strong arm low, weak arm high, and guide their arms to miss roscoe.

    Great recommendations guys. I never thought about hugging techniques but it is something to be aware of the next time I go out.

    How do you explain the black eye and swollen testicles to your wife?
