First off, I do agree, a shoulder rigis the most obvious way of carrying a sidearm, it's right there and there's really no way of hiding it, per se.
With that being said, I had talked with a friend that's a Kentucky State Trooper, he advised me when I asked, that while it would seem to be open, it is best to not use one until you have a CCDW, just in case. He had advised that the best way to OC until the carrier had there CCDW was in a hip holster.
AS I said, I agree though that the shoulder rig would be the most obvious though. So, approach at your own risk or better yet, contact you state police or highway patrol.
(3) (a) "Concealed dangerous weapon" means a dangerous weapon that is covered, hidden, or secreted in a manner that the public would not be aware of its presence and is readily accessible for immediate use.
So in UT I would call it OC, a gun in a shoulder holster would be pretty noticeable. But as mentioned above the blue suit and shiny badge may think other wise.
i think you would be all set. i OC 1/2 IWB all the time, my tactical glock holster likes to ride up and the tip of my gun plus 1/2 the holster finds its way into my waistband. as long as the weapon is visible i as a OCer would not see any issue but as before mentioned. some guys in blue with shiney badges might wanna give you an issue because their opinion differs . happy hunting :-)
my ?All i haveis shoulder holster. i wear it on theoutside of my shirt my arm covers part of the holster. would that be considered concealed.
Here's what I've always been told by LEOs: If it can be seen from at least 2 positions it is not concealed, but that may differ from State to State and is always dependent upon how your State's statute is written. Personally, if there's no garment to cover the firearm it's clearly not concealed as it's readily identifiable as a firearm in a holster. (duh right?)
