    I'm fairly new here, but have enjoyed the amount of info and debate that goes on in this forum. I imagine that this question might be better posed to one of the CC forums, but you all seem remarkably well-informed.

    I just picked up my CPL (after a 30 day wait) in Seattle, and have a question about where the line is between CC and OC, especially with summer coming.

    I'm able to conceal my Glock 19 pretty well underneath a pullover windbreaker with an OWB holster, but realized while I was bending over to pick up my dog's daily deposit that my pullover was riding up, and I had to pull it down. The holster was about half-uncovered. Nobody was around to see it, but it got me to thinking about the subject.

    A simple t-shirt will provide me with full concealment in the summertime, but it too will ride up, and in a light breeze might move enough to break conceal.

    I understand that this is probably another reason to OC, but I'm not there yet with being able to articulate my rights (although I'm learning quickly). From a practical perspective, can anyone give me any insights?

    The beauty of having a cpl in Washington is that you can CC or OC or anything in the middle, it doesn't matter. Just because you have a cpl doesn't mean you have to conceal it. So don't worry and carry on.

    +1. Unless you're acting in a manner, under circumstances and at a time and place... that would warrant alarm for the safety of others, then there's nothing against any form of carry in the way you describe.

    Now there's an answer to a question I've had. Thanks!

    It seemed a bit daft to be required to only CC or OC. The in-between was unclear to me.
