printing
 
Can u get in trouble for printing . There are other items people carry on there. hip that print cell phone knives lights . Would I t be considered the same as brandishing. I live in an open carry state not that I would or want to but what could happen to you legally or would it be based on the person that saw it or the cop that was called as a result if it even got that far.?

"Printing" can make a BIG difference, depending on the gun laws in your particular state.

Some states are very strict, some aren't. Some states gun laws use the words "...as long as an effort is being made to conceal..." have been used, as well as addressing "flashing" (accidental, brief exposure) in their laws.

Some states have big differences in open and concealed carry, too. You must either carry open or concealed, not a little bit of both, and usually in most cases, one must have a permit to carry concealed, even if open carry doesn't require one. A "print" that can be recognized as a gun can be considered illegal under some state concealed carry laws, even if open carry is legal.

"Brandishing" usually means when one exposes their weapon intentionally, usually to detour, and laws can be vague that means that anyone could be charged with "brandishing" if anyone else is just frightened, menaced, or feels threatened. I would advise you to become very familiar with your own state's gun laws, especially if you are carrying a firearm, whether it be concealed or openly.

Carry concealed means just that. If I'm carrying concealed, I do NOT want a print. When carrying concealed, your best weapon is a surprise. When carrying open, your weapon is deterrent.

depends on the cop that sees it and the laws where you live. some cops may go "cool that guy is a CCW person" and come over and say "hey buddy your piece is showing cover it better" others may have that batman complexe or are liberal pro-crime a-holes may give you some harrassment.

cops are people like everyone else some good some bad some indifferent.

just depends on the laws and what sort of cop you run across...

General rule of thumb, if open carry is legal, then printing won't get you in deep do-do. You may have to show your license/permit to LE people, but that's usually about it.

A "wife-beater" does not constitute a cover garment. The sole benefit to being armed and no one knowing it is that you are armed, and nobody knows it. Having an ax-handle poking out the side of you Polo shirt could, at best, result in an unwanted interview with Mall Security. At worst, you're the first guy get shot in 7-11.
Concealed means "concealed". Choose your firearm, your holster, and your clothing accordingly. Learn to love hats with logos on them. If you don't like hats with logos on them, buy expensive shoes. Buy a Rolex. Wear something that draws the eye to it, and away from where you are toting. I draw the line at facial tattoos and "gauges" in my earlobes, but you see where I'm going with this.

Check your states laws. There's a website, Concealed Carry.com IIRC, that has a ton of useful information on it about CC.

That's funny. But, I can see that getting you shot in the wrong situation. Cool though.
