    I don't point it out to people, maybe to my wife, so she'll think to be more observant. I don't particularly want people telling me - what's my response supposed to be?

    "Oh."
    "So?"
    "Ok."
    "No biggie."

    It doesn't bother me so much.

    I am a Jeans and T-shirt guy. IWB 1911, just drape the t-shirt over it. Dosen't hide, but does not show too much, who cares. Seat belt fliped it up getting out at a gas pump once, motor cycle ride has blown it up a time or two. So what. I do not intentionally print with looser shirts, but not concerned in any way either unless in a "special" location.

    Ive never been told I was printing by a stranger. And I usually print so bad you could probably tell what model RMR I have on it.

    That's one of the things I put into the "not my business" pocket.

    We’re an open carry state. Printing isn’t an issue.

    I don’t talk to strangers about little crap like that and don’t really need some stranger to talk to me about something like that either. I wouldn’t tell a stranger that their baby is ugly either. Same thing lol.

    I won’t say what you did was rude but it was probably unnecessary.

    Absolutely. If you were to approach me about it, you'd get the stink eye and I'd tell ya to get out of my face pronto.

    I just figure if a person didn't care about being made, chances are, he/she is gonna open carry anyway.

    If a person has went out of his/her way to conveal their gat, they would wanna stay concealed. I mean, when you see me, you'll never know I'm packin' a rod.

    As usual, YMMV.

    What makes you think they are "going out of their way"? With OC its a relaxed law now and when I conceal, I certainly don't care if I print or otherwise show.

    You're right. I don't even know what you or anybody else is thinking when you "gun up" and head out into the world. If you wanna show off your iron and alert everybody you're armed, more power to ya.

    But for me, I prefer the element of surprise. There's no way in hell you're gonna know I'm armed until you're on the floor with lead in your chest.

    But...to each their own. :thumb:
