Concealed means "concealed from casual observation". If no overt act of search by the police officer is required to see your firearm, it is my understanding that you are not carrying concealed. Once again, I am not an attorney, but I can read as well as one, and I look this stuff up for myself. Not a jab at you, just to let you know that I am not talking out of my a**. On a personal note, I once got stopped for a tail light being out, informed the officer that my S&W model 66 was on the passenger seat, he looked in the window, and said OK. That was where that part of the conversation ended. This was in the '80s, before I had a CHP.
