LOL! One thing about deciding to wear a kilt from time to time is developing a thick skin...but I've gotten far more positive comments than negative from folks in person.

All in fun, guys!

...and it shouldn't be any problem with the kilt since I use the same belt. Concealed will be even easier since I can use the cargo pocket on the right side.

Gotcha, retention is VERY important when you're OC'ing, not uncommon for some jagoff to come up behind you and try to prove an idiotic point by grabbing at your piece, or even worse some jagoff who wants to use it If you're in eastern NC I'll keep an eye out for ya, you shouldn't be too hard to miss!

Good for you... I have been stopped and ask for my CCW before while carrying concealed. I don't think I would ever open carry it draws too much attention.

Not always in the kilt, but watch for me anyway. You near Goldsboro? I'm a member out at ENC Firing Range. Let me know if your in the area and we'll go put holes in paper.

I was at the mall and a deputy stopped me an ask if I had a permit for the weapon was carrying. I replied yes and produced it, he said thank you, that was all. It was in the summer and I was carrying my Glock 23 in a in the waist band holster with only my shirt covering it. I guess he saw the outline of it and was curious.
