I just saw a man at McDonald's with the butt of a Glock sticking out of his pants pocket. At times, the tail of his untucked shirt covered it from view, but usually not.

Have any of you run into problems with carry that skirts the line between open and concealed? Or perhaps when going from concealed to open while in public (e.g. entering a restaurant)?

With concealed, no one knows. With open, folks are clear that you're not trying to hide/conceal anything. Do you think the gray area (semi-concealed) is likely to draw more attention from the public or the police?

Assuming anybody notices, probably. The good news we are legal either way.:D

I carry 'indifferently concealed' sometimes.

I have received calls about people discovered packing whenthe clothing moves. Fast food places are best where the lighting is good and many people in line looking around.

By the time I get there.... the subject is normally gone.

This guy's Glock was much more open than concealed.

And with a Glock t-shirt on, he wasn't going for subtlety. :)

Sounds like Citizen.... Always likes to be obvious. I am sure the shirt had a cite about concealed carry too. :lol:
