although i don't oc yet, i'm still getting used to the idea of cc'ing. figured i'd join here and read up and whatnot.... some day i'll trade the 5.11 parka, or sholder holster for a hip, but not quite yet.
currently pack a small 38 special in the jacket (man, those are cool), and sometimes a 45 in the shoulder holster (still too big for me and all the time).
although if you do have/get one of those jackets, do not forget to take the nylon holster out of the jacket when crossing the border... comming back really late with the fiancee from a meatloaf concert (don't laugh) in vancouver, we we're 'randomly chosen' to have our car searched, i left the jacket in the car. and all hell broke loose with them finding the holster (took them 10 minutes to get it out of the jacket... i wonder why i left it in it). came in telling me to put my hands on the counter.
so i i start walking to the counter and ask "what's going on?"
"hands on the counter! hands on the counter!" louder and louder then he 'helped' me,not quite pushing, but being forcefull...
right here is where i heard the 'click' of his partners holster... never want to hear that directed at me again.patted me down (got kinda personal, he knows which one is bigger).
then i explain i have no gun, i'm crossing the border after all... i have a CWP it's in my wallet... apparantly I "should've told them i had a HOLSTER" attatched to my jacket...
so, crossing the border declare all firearms and firearms related stuff... next time shoulder holster no gun. (just kidding!).
