When the camel's toe gets under you'll really be in business.My NJ g/f isn't fond of guns. The other night, when she was in town, we took a long walk in Towson at night. I said that I would have felt better if I were "accessorized." She said it was ok for me to carry around her so long as she didn't know about it. The camel's nose is under the tent. I mentioned to her that I reported a defect in my holster, and she was surprised I used one. I suppose she would have thought that I'd just shove it in a pocket. I told her about needed to cover up the trigger guard to avoid Glock Leg.
On a fashion note, she said she liked the look of my untucked plaid shirt. She didn't put 2+2 together on that one or the black t-shirts I wear now.
Same thing happened to me in NC. Sheriff's Deputy (very nice looking female) asked me if I had protection as me and my son had a flat tire in the middle of the night. I sheepishly said "no", she said, "well lock yourself up in the car and I will be right back, there are a lot of transients coming through here".Been called out for not carrying by a cop in Wake Forest one time.
He said, well I' ll hang around here till you boys get done and move on out of here.
Your Yankees are not Damned Yankees until you decide to move in round here somewhere.
1) Spend thousands on the latest micro macrame 9 and concealment underwear garter that doesn't print.
2) Walk around in 5.11 clothing with gun decals all over your water bottle, laptop, jeep, baby stroller, etc
Jeeze. Once, back in my twenties. I pulled up my shirt because...well...I don't remember. I'm sure there was a reason. Maybe comparing six packs or something stupid. Maybe not stupid. I miss my abs. You know, twenty something BS. Briefly forgot, until I had set the hand in motion, at which point it was too late to send an abort signal. Happily, it wasn't a big deal.
Since acquiring my W&C a couple months ago, I've been carrying pretty much daily. Not at work. But definitely at home as well as out and about. Wifey knew I was getting the permit, but I never told her I was actively carrying. If she's noticed, she hasn't told me. She's even rubbed against my sidearm a couple times. If she is just being quiet and respectfully letting me do my thing, that would be a first. I'll bring it up in a month or two if she doesn't.
At Martin"s MS-13 owns the cheese isle. Safer to just get cheez whiz in the cracker isle or score some kosher cheddar when you get the gefilte fish.Taurus Gx C series exists. I carry a G2c I bought second hand for $200. Shoots not half bad. I carry in a muddy river tactical IWB soft leather rig that was $41 to my door. I need to buy a second 17rd mag for this gun, that will cost $36 + whatever shipping.
I didn't say anything to my wife, I just started carrying. I work in Moco so I don't care while at work, and I don't care at my son's daycare, and my older son's school, for obvious legal reason.
Everywhere else I am strapped. I go to leave my house and the freedom noise making machine slips on me. If I know I am going to be in and out I will simply have it on me in the house too.
I have an IWB rig for my work pants that I use in my car. At the house I will put my shirt behind the weapon and OC for some extra comfort of not having the holster directly on me. That is an all plastic rig.
I went out Thanksgiving Day to buy our food and strapped up to go to a swanky Martin's and my wife was busting my balls about encountering gang member there, to which I replied, 'better to have it and not need it, then need it and not have it"
...the clerk's reaction didn't really register until I sat down in my car. I laughed for a couple of minutes and then went back in to apologize to the poor clerk in case he had called Frederick PD on me.
