That is what I love about Indiana. While I prefer for personal reasons to remain concealed, there is no legal obligation to do so.

Now I could say the same about Oklahoma (at least after November 1st) when licensed open carry becomes legal. But really, for 13 years I have carried concealed and while someone sometime may have noticed, I really don't think so. But it seems to me people REALLY don't notice (the vast majority). Once I even open carried (accident) into Walmart for maybe 10 seconds, and NO ONE noticed at all. Then I realized it and covered it up, and still no one noticed (at least no scared sheep anyway).

I could see where engaging in this activity of taking someones picture from "behind" could get out of had really fast if you are spotted doing so. I find this activity of yours a bit odd.

I was sitting a few rows behind a guy at a Cardinals game last year that had his gun covered, but printed horribly. I never could see the gun except for the shape. He was carrying a full size 1911 OWB at 4:30 in a pair of shorts and covered up with a paper thin t-shirt. He probably made a dozen trips up and down the stairs throughout the game and would stretch and bend over most times when he got out of his seat. I didn't have my CCW at that time, but made me realize that concealed means concealed. I do everything possible to make sure that nobody knows I'm carrying. I even make sure if I have to pick something up, I do it in a way that will not print.

Unless it is a tactical looking and pigmented bag, I do not assume concealing. I have seen a few lately, accompanied by tactical looking camouflage clothing.

Saw two guys walking down the sidewalk, both of them had what looked like a brick on their hips (kydex holsters?) tucked under very oversized t-shirts. Both with their right arms lifted to avoid hitting their weapons. It was kind of funny actually.

I wear Galco gun leather, it hugs to the hip better.

I don't really look for it. Perhaps I should here in VT/NH.

I wish I had a camera, I spotted a REALLY bad one today (actually yesterday, but I just got off work ). Not only because of the total crap belt he was carrying on, but the fact his shirt was about 2in short and the bottom of what was clearly a firearm holster was sticking out the bottom of his shirt.

I was running into the grocery store, and there is a Subway next door and he was walking to his car as I parked. At first I chuckled... then I wanted to write down thebeltman's URL on a slip of paper and give it to him.

Non-CCW holders don't give two craps about spotting printing and sticking.
So it's a non issue for me.

While this is true, when it's blatantly obvious, people will notice.

This. Who cares. I rode my motorcycle around town with just a tshirt over it. Wind blew Tshirt up over the handle, and no f' was given the whole ride.

It's not a big deal in most states, but there's a few states where it *could* be a big deal.

IMO other people attempting to conceal in public is other people's business rather than mine. To me their behavior is more immediately important than their hardware.

Totally illegal to carry at a professional sporting event.

I can sure see mine. I carry mostly OWB and it prints big time. Been doing the OWB for some time now and I don't think anyone has noticed. LE will always see it and some observant CC'ers will but the rest have no idea.

.......in Florida and by a licensed CC. The post quoted may be in another state. The person spotted may not be your regular licensed carrier.

When we started carrying we had an ongoing game to see how many other concealed firearms we could spot. It was a cool game that helped increase our awareness. We still play it ever so often, but not as often as we used to.

My most memorable one (I can only assume, as I never actually saw the firearm) was a gentleman at the mall. He was impeccably dressed and color coordinated. All, except the two black straps on his brown belt that went perfectly with his brown shoes and brown pants.

Most recent was a guy checking out in Lowes Home Improvement who had on a white t-shirt. I could see his pistol through the shirt. I was also printing slightly. I just walked away wondering if he thought he was invisible or just didn't care.
