I'll start.

Today, bank teller. Obviously carried CC because she picked it up under a LONG pull over sweater. Being new to CC, I am VERY concerned with printing. She looked at me (I had just made my deposit) and said "Don't worry, I won't tell" and pointed at her right hip. Smiled, winked, and told me to have a nice day. I was going to ask her how she knew, but I didn't want to sit there and broadcast to everyone else in the bank something was up.

That's a good way to recheck your entire carry system.

Pet store. I was getting water for my aquarium and knelt down to pick up my container. The owner asked what I was carrying to which I replied, "A jug of water." She then asked what was I carrying on my hip. I told her I had a Kahr K9 and she told me she had a. 32 on her hip.

I stopped at a PA Turnpike rest stop to relieve my bowels, and literally every other stall was taken by a PA State Trooper. I went in to do my business, and here is the exchange (we were each seated on our respective toilets):

Trooper: You got a permit for that?
Me: Umm....what?
Trooper: Do you have a license to carry?
Me: Umm....yeah
Trooper: Ok. Carry on.

I told my mom, who is an optometrist, and now she tells that story to each of her PSP patients and they all think it is the funniest thing ever.

I have not been busted in all the years i have CC'd. I assume other CC'ers have noticed a bulge or something, but none said anything.

I was at a club picnic grilling hamburgers and a friend of mine who happens to be a prison guard, no we didn't meet there, said, "I see you have your friend along." At first I didn't know what he was talking about then it dawned on me. We were out of earshot of the others so I said, Yep, two of em, Mr. Smith and Mr. Wesson". He smiled and patted his side.

Before I had my set-up refined, my wife would ride behind me while bicycling and tell me whether I was printing or not. In the several years I have been carrying, she is the only one who has ever mentioned it to me, and I carry full-time.

I've found sweaters to be lousy cover garments. They tend to cling.

The worst and most flagrant I've ever done was back when I used carry in an OWB under a shirt with the tails out. I unknowingly brandished for who knows how long on a motorcycle ride.

Definitely one of my more idiotic moves. :image045:

Car dealer used to offer mini-massages (a massage chair) while customers were waiting on auto repairs (Tues & Thurs). Since it was only a neck and shoulder massage, I didn't bother disarming (didn't really want to leave pistol in car while the mechanics were crawling over it). Well, the masseuse noticed tightness in my upper back, so she started working further down my back, and my sides. When she encountered the butt of my PX4, she paused, and said, "Oh, don't worry about it, I've got one, too."

In twenty plus years of concealed carry, no one has ever said anything.

..of all places a women shoe store with my wife. She saw some boots and I reached to get them "strong side" just as the sales person approached to get them for us. Needless to say he suddenly disappeared to the back of the store. Upon checkout he was funny acting as well as the cashier who was jumpy. I guess he radio to her that I was carrying. Oddly enough we were in a part of town where most people would carry, not because they are afraid but as a way of life..lots of "country land" about 15 mins away from the Shopping plaza.

Honestly I never have. I have carried for 17 years and I guess I have been successful. CCW does stand for "Concealed" does it not?

I have a home gym. A young lady and I were working out and afterwards, she sees my pants hanging on a hook with the empty holster. (The gun was safely stored.) She asked me right there if I carry a gun.

So many questions, so few points remaining...

Correct, it does indeed. Some people just don't get that lucky or aren't the good. Watch the video of yankeemarshal when he accidently open carried an no one said anything to see what I mean about being lucky.

I've never been "made" but my Colt almost fell into a urinal once. There's something to be said for having a holster with the right FIT!!! :frown:
