The trick is to conceal the bulge. I carry a Glock 27, usually in a lightweight shoulder rig. But I've used an inside-the-pants holster to carry while wearing shorts and a T-shirt. I was a little paranoid about it being noticeable, but my teenage kids had no idea, so I guess it worked.
Absolutly. I agree with that logic. You figure that most of the true gunfighters in the old west that lived was because they were able to hold steady and aim under duress and fire to ensure that they hit their target everytime. No second chances in those days.
Many police officers appreciate responsible citizens who care enough to get the proper training in order to qualify for a Concealed Carry Permit.
A Licensed Permit enables trained citizens more flexibility and in essence, they provide a service to society - almost like unto under-cover police officials.
While it's mandatory to disclose to an inquiring officer that you have a Concealed Carry Permit (whether you're carrying or not), I've never seen one who was not appreciative for a responsible citizen's service in somewhat backing them up.
Risk to police officers and society is greatly reduced concerning honorable citizens propers trained on the use of firearms.
Those with Concealed Carry Permits are involved in far less shootings or controversial issues than PD's and are viewed as honest, law abiding citizens - just the opposite of those who (literally and figuratively) have hidden agendas / something to hide.
In the spring of 2007 I was the unfortunate recipient of an injury cause by a damaged carbon arrow that shattered on release of the arrow. I was in the yard going to take a few practice shots before dinner and the second arrow is the one that did the damage. That day will forever be burned in my mind. After I release what happened I made mistake #2 I pulled the tail shaft of the arrow out of my hand causing more damage.
Thank goodness that my wife was home and was able to...
