Boyyyy Bump...you're so right about the "he's packin heat" ... I know the touring bikers around here wear vests, and they don't get a second glance around here in NH....maybe that's a good thing :biggrin: Either way.. 20 bucks for a vest that starts at around 180.00 is a steal in my eyes :biggrin:

A couple years ago, I bought the Coronado Safari Vest for my brother for Christmas. He loves it. It's made very well, the pockets are durable, and even with larger, heavier guns, you can't see an imprint. For $20, you got a steal, because I paid much MUCH more for my brother's! :eek:

In TN, sometimes it's hard to figure out who's packing or not, since it's country music heavy and lots of guys wear vests, hats and boots. :biggrin:

I feel the same way about fannypacks.

Dont get me wrong. I mean its your style, and noy mine that matters for YOU. If a vest is your thing, thats cool. A steal makes it even better.

That seems a steal alright!

To heck with this ''shouts carry'' deal - I couldn't care a ****!! My vest is mostly used when biking but hey - if (as mine is) you have total concealment - WTH!!!! Let folks guess - I really have no prob with all this. Same with fanny pack on rare occasion I use one.

I go to bank sometimes, not wearing fanny pack but carrying it cos that is where my check book lives - it always has (permanent home!) within, my Bersa 380 tho I hardly carry it - no probs tho - no one sees inside.

I am not phased by anyone guessing - knowing that unless I am searched no one but no one will know I am carrying :biggrin:

Personally I'd perfer it to shout carry. People are less likely to screw with you if they know your armed...remember BG's are usually cowards and don't want to be challenged. Makes me wish I lived in an open carry state.

If you want to "camoflauge" your carry vest, I know bikers that take them and have motorcylce logos sewn onto them, others that put professional sports team or band logo's on, etc.
On fanny packs, some put patches with camera company logos on them, or sports teams.

Basically, gives folks something to think about other than "concealed weapon"

You know P95 and 500, I have thought about this (woooooo someone's gonna know your carring !!!) for quite some time now and have come to the simi-same conclusion--------WHO GIVES A _HIT !!! I will never open carry--but beyond that SO WHAT. OBTW sometimes I wear a light weight summer vest (and I'm not ashamed of it either)----------

Haha - more ''converts'' :biggrin:

I have thought tho following one or two mentions - I'll perhaps get some logo's added to vests. My wife is about to start working for a company doing silk-screen printing and they embroider stuff too - might be a useful distractive idea - anything that takes attention away.

Beyond which as I said - who gives a scoop of horse pucky LOL!

Just a thought------ Get her to put on it>>>> (with arrow pointing to the lower side of the vest) I have a gun under this vest and if ya mess with me I'll pull it out and shoot ya at least twice. Nobody would believe that and you'd be safe from scorn.(If you care) sheeesh,some of us are just so cold hearted.-----
