    Pistology---that and a great deal more is from anyone who has taken the time to think about what happens in the course of our daily travels and how to position yourself such that you do not have 'discoveries' or 'clunks' when you go through a tight door way or sit on a wooden bench ( like many restaurants have). these arn't secrets hidden in books or taught at training centers. they are free to all who take the time to observe and think ahead.

    All very good points & advice, some funny and some practical.

    Thanks for the advice and reference Pistology.

    As well as being armed with "knowledge", we should also have situational awareness in the sense; I am carrying a gun and I need to be aware of how doing so will have varying consequences per se. Not the consequences from using a gun, although there are consequences, but the impact in how we adapt accordingly. You might want to sit on a bench, for example, in such a way that your gun is going to clank when you sit down.

    Thanks for the great input guys.

    Still not cool of the sister to run her mouth though.
    Yeah, everyone in my family knows I'm a gun nut and I have my CWFL except for like distant cousins that I haven't ever met. Then again, I have accidentally let it slip to some people (not family) that I wish I hadn't. My liberal neighbor for one.

    Of course, on a forum involving safety in critical situations, common sense and wisdom bear repeating, though I don't consider what's in books to be "hidden". I want to share and learn proven tips and techniques. Attributions of top people in the field should carry some weight in due consideration on the internet.

    That said, you point about the role of observation and critical thinking and playing different scenarios before the fact is most excellent.

    Happy to share, DefConGun. Please See this (with photo), from Massad Ayoob's The Gun Digest Book of Concealed Carry

    And at, PAX's (aka Kathy Jackon) site, she says this about church carry, and relates this about a personal, first-hand hugging incident, and formalizes the point and technique, here.

    Hugging is one thing I've always had trouble with. At 6'4", it's awkward to guide most people to go high on EITHER side. lol

    Appendix carry works really well in "hugging" situations.

    My biggest concern isn't really the hug, it's printing if my shirt is too closely tucked when I lean in for hugs. So far, so good, but I'm careful.
