thanks for your input but I have another question how many of you "carriers" have been talked to or had a secound look by a cop or other trained personnel while wearing a "hidden"?
isn't it nice to take a break from the political stuff :)
If properly "hidden" then nobody knows.
Are you saying the holsters have imbedded microchips to tell our law "enforcement" officers that you are armed?
Good possibility - and nearly probable
"Concealed" - you know; not open to view, people don't see it.
Most people think it's a cell phone when they see a bulge under a shirt.
Because TX has a concealed carry law, I don't approach, I merely observe, unless they are in a place where weapons are prohibited.
I will tell you the one that's a dead giveaway-someone in jeans with a wallet and checkbook in the back pockets wearing a fanny pack
When I lived in NH in the mid 70's, you had to have a permit issued by local law and it was very easy to obtain if you had a clear record. Odd thing was, you had to carry openly. It was against statues to carry concealed.
I've spoken with cops while carrying and they never looked at me twice. You may feel as if it looks obvious, but it doesn't. Here in liberal Connecticut, I use a Milt Sparks, you should try it.
Drive by shooting all the time with no defense for the innocent.
BOUNCE BOXER NOW!
Don't forget the Banana Republic photographers vest, or the oversize Hawaii shirt look.
All of the police and most of the bad boys here know I carry a gun (with a permit) all the time. Nobody says sh** to me about it either.
in MN our law is often incorrectly called "concealed carry", but there's no crime in carrying openly either. It's just not the cultural norm here and IMO, not wise to flaunt it any way.
It was done this way so if your shirt were to ride up or something, you can't be charged with a crime for it.
I've never been stopped by a cop for the way I carry because
they never see it.
Check out the G26...uses the G17 or G19 magazines...soon flush 12 rounders will be available...plus one up the pipe ...or plus two mag extensions...in @10 days from now...
A bellyband with a SS pistol is the best for summer carry I can wear shorts and a tee shirt and still conceal it...

Just like anything else, if you worry about it, it happens.
They don't come much more discreet than that.
Missed your first post about holsters, but there are a couple hoster makers I'd recommend:
These seem to be the "creme de la creme" amongst the CHL community. I carry a Tucker HF-1 with a full-size 1911.
WHY oh WHY do you feel compelled to post this Glock schlock on latest articles? Just because you are a newbie here doesn't mean that you aren't bound by the same etiquette the rest of us follow...And frankly one of the reason I come to FR is to talkj politics....not read blather that should be in the blog section
Occasionally I enjoy trying to spot people carrying "concealed". The pickings are slim here in NY, but under the proper circumstances I may say something to the guy like, dude your piece is printing. I get reactions ranging from "Thanks" to "F--- off", to "I'm a cop". Sometimes it's best to keep one's observations to oneself.
This is not even close to a true statement....You must live in LA where the chief of PD won't sign for anyone but a celeb's body guard to have a fire arm....Try some other part of the state and you (EXCEPT SF)will find a much different atmosphere
Forgot 2 more good ones...
Personally, I like single stack because of the slimness of the weapon.
I understand your nerve problem I've had it in the past and know guys that do now
Howdy there, Texas finest! I'm also a Texan amd a CHL holder.
I've had only one incident. I was in San Antonio, (for an interview), and of course I had to go see the Alamo. I had a North American Arms .32 in my back pocket and my .45 on my left hip, under my vest. (Cross-draw) Anyway the officer at the door said he could tell what is was by the outline in my back pocket and gave me a pretty bad time for a couple of hours.
Now my "backup" goes in my boot.
Here's one nobody likely thinks about until they carry; The restroom. I've been in a situation in a public restroom where there is no shelf or such and the stall door doesn't reach the floor. Remember, the C in CHL means "concealed", so you can't leave it in the holster as it will be seen. You can where this is going. Yes, I had to sit in a diner's bathroom, with my pants around my ankles, holding a gun. Use your imagination about the TP.
To the original author of this thread: Left hip, grip forward, inside the pants, ordinary vest. Left hip, I say, so you can reach it while driving.
I carry a wheel gun - is it really that apparent?
(I don't have the girth to carry tucked in my waistband).
Stay safe !.....
That's why I recommend a paddle holster. You can pull it out as a unit without the holster showing under the door
It is to me, Most people are sleepwalking and unaware of their surroundings
Stay safe !
One of my favorites is a pair of shorts, sleeveless tee, and a cut off sleeve old BDU shirt as a cover shirt. People stay far enough away that they don't see anything. If LE shows an interest, I ID myself discreetly and move on my way
As you're law enforcement, please let me ask you a question. The company I work for has the correct "30.06" sign on all the doors, except the back door.
Am I correct in thinking that I'm OK entering that door, which is what I do? The info I've found at packing.org, the TXDOT site, etc. seems to indicate I'm right. Am I?
I'm lazy and just leave my gun in my truck. In Nevada you can conceal within your vehicle.
Stay safe Sir !

Not likely. Since you work for this company, you apparently know that it prohibits carrying. If you are discovered, you may be legally OK, but you'll be hitting the unemployment line.
Sometimes legal isn't safe.
I couldn't find anything in company policy about weapons one way or the other and the building is leased. Some of the signage still has the previous occupant's name on it, so I don't know who's idea the 30.06 sign was. And, I'm certainly not going to ask. Do that and I might as well tape the CHL to my forehead.
If at some time I do get fired over this, no problem. I'd rather be looking for a job than be dead.
If you're aware of the signs on the other doors, splitting hairs by entering the door that they forgot is not going to do you any good. You have received effective notice of the owners desires and can be arrested.
I came into work one night dressed like that-they had a fine young citizen in cuffs in the squadroom while they proceesed some paperwork before taking him to the sheriffs bed and breakfast. The look on his face as I walked in, barked a few orders at some troops and started coffee was priceless. You could see he didn't understand why I wasn't in cuffs, and why the hell were these guys doing what I told them to?
I make it a personal policy to not be involved in things that may one day be case law. I make the same suggestion to anyone who believes in RKBA. Don't be the example they want to make of you, stay low key
where should I post it, and how do I get it there?
"stay low key"
You sure got that one right!
When I read your previous, you got me scrambling. Sometimes its confusing. In a govt building, no. Court, no. State govt building, OK. Oh, heck, any govt building, fine. Wait...
The "must be posted on every entrance" issue was brought up by none other than my instructor who told us that he simply goes in the service entrance rather than crossing the sign.
Little did I know that I would later face the same situation.
Thank you kindly sir, for your input.
The law is pretty straight forward once you read it. The people that put up the signs are exercising their rights as property owners. The CHL People can exercise their rights by not entereng and spending money in that establishment
"The CHL People can exercise their rights by not entereng and spending money in that establishment"
Which is exactly what I did at Cynthia Woods/M. Pavilion. (I also lost a date on that one.)
Sadly, in this case its my employer, which means I must enter the building if I want to get paid. Gads. Well, off to dice.com.
I agree, they are real nice, I like the 40 S&W offerings if your going single stack.
The polymer framed Kahrs have quite a kick, though.
Stay safe !
