    I drop my lcp in a pocket holster to check the mail/trash. I've got tweaker neighbors.

    In sweatpants, same result as putting a heavy handgun in a pocket (see post No. 6 above). Also, anything that doesn't cover the trigger guard is asking for trouble.

    I recon. I dip and drink soda so I'm already asking for trouble. I also have a Clipdraw on my AR.

    I gimp around a lot of the time, cane or walker. I am also in a wheelchair quite often. When I think I need a gun outside I carry a shotgun with full stock and pistol grip.

    On the handgun, I have an old belt and cheap holster. I just loop the belt over my head and under my arm. It carries the holster in the same area of my should holsters, yet just takes a second to slip on and leave both hands free.

    As to legality, I dont know, but I have spoken with law enforcement before, at night, when using the shotgun in one hand, nothing was said, but the folks I deal with in a small area know who cause problems.

    I thought the law said any "legitimate purpose" showing your buddy across the street fits in that.

    Indeed. :D

    FWIW, I don't carry a round chambered in SA-only semi-autos.

    Lol, come to think of it... a couple Hi-point C9s are the only strictly SA semi-autos on the premises. :D
