I'm new to carrying concealed...experimenting with different types. I like the smartcarry but not sure it would be comfortable all day... I'm afraid to carry in my purse for fear I'll leave it behind (I dont normally carry a purse)... The fanny pack is an okay option. What do you other gals use? Also, what do you do if you have your weapon with you and decide to stop by a restaruant and meet some friends for a cup of coffee and the restaraunt serves alcohol? (concealed carry not allowed in such a place here in Va....but open carry is okay.....I guess I could walk in and set my glock on the table and tell the waitperson I would like an ice tea.....) Lock it in the trunk? What if somebody sees me taking my fanny pack and sticking it in there? Looks like a great reason to break into my car. Thanks for your input.
