    She wouldn't see it. As I said, I don't print. I'm thinking the shoulder hug. I just don't want to have the discussion with her. I mean, she goes to places to find synthetic replacements for meat for food.

    Absolutely no reason for a discussion you don't want to have.

    I have a great tofu recipe you can share with her:

    1) Throw the tofu in the garbage
    2) Cook up some meat

    If your only carrying when you go out of the house, it should be ok. Just go into your bedroom or where you keep your carry gun and put it on, nobody should be the wiser. No need to bring the subject up at all.

    I love this recipe. F it. I will carry, shoulder hug, and avoid waist hug proximity.

If that doesn't work...move on and say that is the way it is. Good luck and always carry.
    In my case, if that didn't work, oh well. My family is too important to me to worry about what she thinks in that regard.

    No kids. Not married, but might as well be.

    Hang in there. Either way I'm sure eventually she might realize your desire to protect yourself (her son). Good luck to you sir.

    No, we'll butt heads, IF she notices. I'm betting she doesn't. Dark colored shirt = concealed success.

    Respectfully, some decisions you just gotta make on your own as a grownup. You decided you wanted to carry so some decisions on your part come with the territory.

I do NOT want to go out tomorrow without my carry weapon, but I also do NOT want to get into a discussion about guns with her. Obviously she's my mother and I love her dearly, but IMO there are some things where concessions shouldn't be made, regardless of circumstance. what would you do? My current stance is to carry anyway. I don't print.
    If guns kill people, then pencils misspell words, cars make people drive drunk, and spoons make people fat.

    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience.

    Unfortunately if you tell MOM it's a medical device , she'll fret over it and make you show it too her. That line works well with casual friends !!

    Pocket carry or careful hug. Of course, there is always the possibility that some relative will come up behind you and put their arm around your waist. Your good if you pocket carry, but may be outed otherwise.

    You definitely want to avoid any discussions at any cost, unless you are absolutely backed into a corner. If you're verbally attacked on the subject, you have the right to defend yourself, but there will be a price. Better to avoid the subject entirely.
