No comments, but I'm pretty sure the only time I screwed up, was on a stop at a Chick-fil-a. I got out of my truck, and apparently my shirt had run up over my IWB Glock. My wife jumped in line while I headed to the men's room, when I realized my gun was exposed. Oops, no eyeballs on me that I noticed, but I'm sure a few people in the busy restaurant spotted my carry. I'm just glad I wasn't home in the Commiewealth of Mass, but was in Jacksonville, FL (Southside to be specific) :smile: . I just wish I lived there instead, lol.

Came home from a 900 mile trip to Lancaster PA. Had my Glock 43X unloaded, in a suitcase in the hatchback, empty magazines.
First rest stop in a non-Commie State, Virginia? Loaded Glock, one extra magazine. Holstered up. On the 81 south, a couple of miles in ML. Can not imagine living anywhere except Florida. I think you are much more likely to get killed driving than any other way.

People can not drive well, any state. But home safe, one day doing nothing to rest up, nice to be home in Gods State.

Putting some goods in my Jeep, outside a big box store, felt a tug on my shirt? Looked up, saw Deputy walking away, I called "Thank you"
She lifted her hand in a silent wave. My vehicle is a marked Security Vehicle. The only time I have ever been made. That I know of.

Pardon me for asking this but how did anybody get that close to you without you being aware of it?

That's how people get their gun snatched

In the 35+ years I have been CCW I have only been "made" once by another uniformed cop who worked for another agency while I was working undercover during Bike Week.

That I am aware of I have never been made. That being said I cant say (if this story is true) I would have been kind enough to give the couple following trying to find out whats going on under my shirt a nice response without showing my rear!

I would have just pointed at my crotch and said “ no, this is my gun” and walked away.
Along the same lines, I tell them they “got me” I’m really a man and obviously very happy to see them!

When people are so self absorbed in their cell phones that they literally walk into the side of your car while it's parked in front of a store, do you honestly think that they will notice that you are carrying anything short of a bazooka?

I have only been asked one time by a stranger. She recognized my fanny pack because she had been shopping for one that day for her dad's birthday.

Moving treated wood from a cart into my Jeep. Affixing a Red cloth to the ends sticking out. She was walking by, I was hot, sweaty, and tired! It happens.

Even another incident, leaving First Watch in Dr. Phillips. A very large Lady was coming in, a big one via the door I was trying to leave out of.

A middle-aged Guy was sitting on the bench seat, awaiting his table? On my left, in stepping towards him, he raised a hand a protective hand. Placed it right on my Glock 19 spare magazine, under my shirt. A natural enough motion. I looked at him, he glanced at me, we both smiled.

I said the Gun is on the other side! He said, "I Know". I left, he stayed. Made? I reckon so. He was Black, I am not.
A cultural moment?

I'm not claiming to be super ninja but probably the second time I got attacked I got really good at noticing people that I didn't know entering my space

Just remember a time working at a coffee shop. A police officer told me my speed loaders were showing. I smiled and pulled my shirt down .

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.

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.
WGaS. It is no one's business who carries a gun. The inquisitive need to be told that the world would be a better place if they minded their own business rather than sticking their noses in other's lives.

And 99% of the people in this world are too concerned w/ the phones or some-such other worthless trivia to even notice what is going on around them. They live at Condition White.

And then they call the cops and report a crazy man with a gun.

Honestly folks, and I can't emphasize this enough.....Nobody makes a big deal about it until you decide to make a big deal about it. "Well, I think in order to prove a point and exercise my 2nd amendment rights, I'll just strap on an AR and as many magazines as I can and stroll into Starbucks and order a latte and pretend I go everywhere dressed like this. Church? The doctor's office? Yep, me and my AR. We go everywhere together."

Seriously? You actually do that and wonder why normal people think you're weird?

I don't believe anybody has noticed when I carry. If they did nobody said anything. I was in church one Sunday and noticed a gentleman when he bowed to pray his shirt would ride up and concealed went to open carry. He step out of the service for a minute I followed and mentioned it to him. He thanked me.
