Sunday carry. The pattern and fabric of this top makes concealing a Glock 19 very easy. .
It's important to make sure your gun is as concealed as possible. Some will say, "the only people who notice are other people who conceal carry." That's probably true. But as a reminder, criminals have been "concealed carrying" for a long time. They will recognize that square protrusion from your waistline. There are also other (legal) professionals who can easily spot a concealed weapon. These people might not know who you are or your intentions. .
I carry every day. So I've had the opportunity to run into a couple awkward situations over the years. One day I took my older daughter to lunch. It was a special outing without the diaper gang (younger siblings). We sat down for lunch and I positioned myself to have a good view of the entrance and dinning room. After a bit two men can and sat in the booth beside us. They both were turned out from the table and also kept an eye on the dinning room. They're build didn't look like police or military but they also didn't look like kind of person you'd mess with. We finished our meal and got up to leave. As I passed I could hear one ask the other, "does she have a gun?!" I was wearing legging and thought an athletic top would be comfy. I could tell I was printing a little, but thought nobody would notice. Well, somebody did. I don't know who they were. Good guys, bad guys? Just a couple dudes wanting hamburgers? It was noticed and I don't want that.
Another time I was talking with some men all who were current or former military. I was wearing jeans, a good belt, holster with a wing, and a sweatshirt. Concealing was easy peesy. We were standing around the kitchen and my son who was about 1 1/2 at the time began pulling at my sweatshirt wanting to be picked up. I put him on hip and saw one man's eyes darting at my waistline and then at me. I casually adjusted my baby and gave my sweetest smile back at the man. Like, oh you're just looking at my adorable child right? I didn't know him personally, and he didn't know me. He didn't know that I always carry. I didn't just strap it on for that special occasion. So from that day on...
