    It does help when a black-on-black combo is used. IMO it's far less obvious, to casual glances.

    I'm sure that you're correct. My point, and I do have one, is that often we pay more attention to ourselves than others do. We have a gun. We are aware of it. We try so hard to make sure that others aren't aware of it, we draw attention to ourselves. We spot our comrades in arms. "Yep, he's packing. That's not a cell phone at 5 o'clock.

    Unless you reside in a highly restrictive state, and thank God I don't, just lighten up and go with the flow. I no longer try that hard to conceal. If people notice, they don't get hysterical about it.

    I've always found it interesting to "study" the observation skills of others. My wife see's nothing (her father is like that too), I see everything (my father was like that). However one thing she does see, she can tell when I had a nap on the couch, something about the pillows being moved a bit? Good grief !

    OC out in public, I think there are two things in play that can affect people seeing someone OCing. One is the fact that you have a gun on only one side of your body. You can walk by some people and they can't see your gun even if they were looking right at you. The other thing is, where you happen to be OCing, are you in a area that is conducive to "people-watching" like a sidewalk along a beach edge? Opposite of the beach example, might be in a supermarket, where most people are focused on their shopping list, pushing their cart, and finding the items on the shelf.

    How do you know you see "everything"? I mean, if you didn't see it you wouldn't realize you hadn't seen it...

    If you're referring to my post, you might be taking it a bit too literal. I think it goes without saying, no one can see everything, it's only a "figure of speech" to get a point across and nothing more.

    I think we notice CC or OC more than most due to our Higher level of SA.
