    Now that is what I am talking about! Works for me!!

  4. I carry a glock 19 in a fobus holster. I'll say, its mostly concealed all the time. But it sometimes sticks out from under my jacket or sweat shirt.
    Nobody has noticed it yet.

    If someone is looking and has half a brain, they will know I carry.
    I don't worry about it.

    I'd say that it really depends on your state's laws on whether or not you should be concerned if your CCW needs to be completely hidden or not. As others have mentioned, just do your best to keep it from normal view - i.e. "hidden" - and you should be fine.

    Unless you live in a state that has fairly strict printing laws, then it's best to sit down and seriously consider how easy or hard it is to keep whatever type of pistol you carry as concealed as it needs to be. You'll need to adjust your carry gun or clothing to better fit your body, etc...

    Err on the side of caution.

    In earlier postings to this thread, "oldbanjo" stated,
    "In SC the Gun has to be concealed. If someone knows that you have a Gun it is not concealed. ............ "
    "hp-hobo" took exception, cited the SC statute and gave his interpretation of it.

    "hp-hobo's" interpretation seems logical but I have heard presumably competent CWP instructors say exactly what "oldbanjo" said. It would be safe to bet that a sampling of LEO's, maybe even judges, would produce a diversity of positions on the point. If you have a problem because someone sees your weapon and makes an issue of it, it is likely to be a hassle and maybe expensive before it is over.

    Unless your state has open carry, I would err on the side of caution.

    If you are sitting in a Park and someone calls the Law and reports that you have a gun, your in trouble if the person that called in can tell them where the Gun is........Hp-Hobo thinks that the Law will use common sense, NO ONE should be able to identify the location of a hidden Gun. The Gun can only be shown when need for self defense.

    I am with you two about it being concealed. I would hate to go to court trying to defend myself with hp-hobo's interpretation although I could possibly have to. I would imagine that most LEO would use some common sense about it but I would not push it as concealed means concealed and if someone sees it and calls 911 you are going to get hassled. I understand that there is an AG Opinion about this which includes the interpretation of a ladies purse but I have never seen it. If anyone has a copy of that opinion I would like to see it.

    You are right about Hobos post, but this guy was from Michigan, not SC,? and you gave Old Banjo a much more real world answer

    I believe that a discussion based on facts, especially when it concerns the law, is better than simply posting ignorant and uninformed rants. Note that I include citations whenever possible. You obviously disagree and prefer to be... Well, you know. Good for you.

    Dude.
    HP - it seems that you proved Rocket's point by posting this post...
    He accused you of posting to correct others, and you turn around a post attempting to correct Rocket..

    I haven't followed your posts, and nobody is telling you to not correct someone, but sometimes it the WAY someone is corrected, especially in public view, such as in a forum...
    I am guilty of this also, so don't feel you are in the boat alone..

    Maybe I misunderstand, but "hp-hobo's" response specifically addressed "oldbanjo's" comment regarding SC. I am not sure what you mean about giving "oldbanjo" a more real world answer. My only point is that it makes sense to err on the side of caution. My goal, at least, is that no one be able to discern in any way that I am armed. I certainly do not always meet that standard but, to me, that would be ideal.
