If you remember from a past post I decided to add my level 3A vest to my daily carry rutine so I've been experimenting for about a month and have gone undetected so far, until now. I was at my cousins graduation so I had to give quite a few hugs. Here's what happened when people asked what I was wearing underneath, the interaction went something like this.
Relative: Come here, give me a hug!
Me: Oh, OK
Relative: Oh, what's that your wearing under your shirt?
ME: Oh thats just my body warmer.
Relative: Oh, I guess it is pretty cold today, maybe I should get one of those.
Thank god nobody asked me where to buy one because I didn't think that far ahead yet. The cool thing is that I didn't have to lie to family because the vest really is 99.9% or maybe even 100% of the time if I'm lucky, just a "body warmer" and it really does make me feel "warm and fuzzy" knowing I have a little extra advantage over a BG.
BTW, I know of one other relative at the get together that was armed and carries everywhere just as I, he carries a SIG P220. I carry a P226. I don't think he wears a vest though.
Also, I just thought it was kind of funny how my underarmour shirt really is for underneath my armor. I bet people are wondering why I wear that thing underneath my shirts everyday. I should probably get it in a few different colors to spice thing up a bit. I know they have red, white, black, and blue ones.
