I realize this isn't a new topic but this is a slightly different iteration.
I just watched a YouTube video in which the YouTuber tells us he's shopping at Walmart with his family when he notices two people (random couple not thugs) following him. Eventually he asks them if there's something he can help them with and they tell him they noticed the bulge and were trying to figure out it was a gun or not. He tells them it's a colostomy bag and that's the end of the video.
Assuming the story is true and not something he made up for channel content his efforts at concealment had to be pretty damned lackadaisical to have drawn that much attention to himself. In this guy's case I have to ask myself (and I did ask him) if he cared enough to lie why not care enough to properly conceal the gun? (I'm sure he's going to block me from his channel) ETA he didn't block me but he's a little butthurt with me.
That I'm absolutely positive of I've been "made" exactly once. I bent down to get something off the floor and someone behind me noticed (or really thought I had a cute butt) and gave me a thumbs up. That's the only time I'm aware of that anyone has ever "caught" me.
I don't think I make any unreasonable effort to conceal my gun. Quality belt, quality holster, dress around the gun, the basics and it's mostly worked.
So my question is barring a major wardrobe malfunction do people get "made" that frequently? Is it really a thing?
I mentioned this to my wife just now but we were at her sister's house one day and her (my wife's) daughter was there with her crackhead husband. At some point during the day he leaned over the coffee table and his shirt rode up his back far enough to expose a Glock 17 sticking out of his ass crack. I don't think anyone but me noticed it. So maybe people really are oblivious.
