I have read many post about a particular method of carry or manner of dress that (screams gun) My question is SO WHAT? As long as you weapon is concelled and you are not brandishing it, what does it matter? My opinion is that these methods only scream gun to fellow CCW citizens and they probably feel safer knowing you are there if a crisis arises. Just my opinion.
I feel that the power of a handgun is greatly increased when you add the element of surprise. Open carry is allowed where I live. But I have a permit to conceal for that very reason.
It is kind of interesting though...I noticed a guy who was dressed similar to myself. I watched his walk for a few seconds and caught a glimps of the end of his holster. If I was not a gun guy...I would not have noticed. I think we notice each other because we try so hard to hide it ourselves.
I wear a t shirt tucked in with a button up shirt over it untucked. I often leave the over shirt unbuttoned. I think a lot of us do this in warm weather.
