    Kratos, check your state regs. Different states say different things when it comes to what "concealed" means. You have not updated your account to show where you are from, therefore, we cannot give you any positive feedback to your question.

    I will say however, that one should not find a firearm that works with their wardrobe, one should find a firearm that works and then properly attire themselves to it.

    I too have a G22. I sometimes use a Kholster IWB, which works great. I also have a Serpa Blackhawk (OWB) which works well, but you must have a loose enough outside wear to cover it well.

    Or if conceal becomes too much of an issue for you, and you live in a state where it is legal, you could open carry.

    do yourself a favor and do not depend on cops for legal opinions, all you got was his opinion, whicn may be right or it may be wrong, check with the state's attorney for clarifications

    I am in FL and heard someone say that printing is illegal, so it got me thinking since I carry a Glock 22 and it always prints but I have had no issues for the past several years in which I have had it.

    printing was not illegal in FLA, brief accidental exposure was a problem.
    the laws were changed a while back so a brief accidental exposure is no longer illegal.

    Concealing

    In Florida is ok to print and signage does not mean nothing.

  8. this is one of many reasons why I carry a small, lw 9mm in a Kydex front pants pocket rig. The concealment is perfect, it looks at most like I have my wallet in that pocket. Having a hand on the gun, when I think trouble might be possible, while still being concealed, is a priceless advantage.

  9. I have been watching this thread. I live in NY and hase an unrestricted CCW permit. I also have a FL non resident and UT non resident liscence: questions:
    1) my understanding is that printing in NY is a very bad thing. I have a Glock 23 and a Crossbreed Supertuck and, a Safariland OWB holster. Here in NY I always use the IWB and have had no problems selecting appropriate attire for cover. Especially when cold weather. EXCEPT one day a few months ago I was at the range using my OWB, I stopped on the way home to get a bottlle of Scotch. A man and a lady were at the were behind the counter. I did not reach for the bottle, it was on a middle shelf, but when I came over to pay he asked me if I was a police officer. At first my mind told me it was because I was wearing my Air Force flight jacket( no patches, rank or anything) I answered his question and said no, I am not a police officer. Due to my training of situational awareness, I noticed another customer finished shopping a was right behind me. 2) should I have the kept my mouth shut? I noticed the very tip of the holster (where the gun barrel is) was showing a little (no gun could be seen just 2" of black leather holster. If I had picked up my pants a little before entering the store I would have bee fine. I the said I just came back from XXX which is the name of a shooting range 30 miles away. I just said the name and did not use the whole name like XXX shooting range, due to the customer behind me hearing.
    Both manager and assistant said I have every right to exercise my rights. I said maybe I should pull my pants up higher. ( stupid thing for me to say).
    I think he was extremely observant or a police officer himself, but I was dam scared. This happened several months ago and the first week I was expecting a police car to visit me! Never happened. That is how much a person in NY feels, if indeed, I am a tropical New Yorker? I do not know the law about what I did. Is it printing? Ny'ers please chime in.
    2) second question. I saw the OP was in FL. I am going to visit a relative there in a couple of months. My understanding of FL law is that if a gun shows briefly and no threatening takes place all is OK. What about if my hosted tip is showing more than briefly?
    Sorry about the long post, but these laws are intimidating and confusing.
    In other words my IWB is uncomfortable and slower to draw than my comfortable OWB.
    I think I need the FL definition and penalties about the OP'S question of getting In trouble.

    not to sound rude but what part of BRIEFLY is confusing you? if it is showing more than briefly you are in violation of the law. let me offer an example of briefly exposure of a weapon, you are in a store and reach for something on a high shelf and your weapon becomes exposed for a moment and upon bringing your arm down you cover the weapon, that could be considered to be a brief exposure, walking around with your barrel or any other part of the weapon in plain view could be considered OC and in FLA is a NO-NO
    YMMV
