Thread: Concealed Carry Definition

  1. Concealed Carry Definition

    Hi all I'm new to the forum and recently acquired by Concealed Carry Permit here in NY state, I'm wondering if someone can clarify what "concealed" means. Does it simply mean that you can't see any part of the gun, or that you can't see any form of the gun, or that you can't see anything at all such as a thicker spot under your shirt. I'm working on finding method of carry that works well for me, I typically wear well fitting clothes, with my shirt tucked in and a belt, any suggestions?

    you were able to get a NY concealed carry permit without knowing the answer to this??

  4. Seriously. How were you able to get a permit in New York of all places without knowing something as simple as this?

    Um... yes.

    At any rate, search for tuckable holsters, there's quite a few out there. Or something like this: SneakyPete

    What kind of training did you go through? That should have been clarified early on. Concealed is just that; concealed! You ever play hide and seek as a kid? If you were seen, you were usually nailed. Depends on your LEOs out there, but I would say KEEP IT HID!

    If you were not required to do so to get your permit, then you need to do so now - read your state law! You need to know a lot more than this-the simplest of concepts-if you are going to carry a concealed firearm.

    In Texas printing would not mean BRANDISHING. IF IT from out of you pants our belt yup...not sure what NYS would want. To Coumo, he'd probably only accept concealed if you had it hidden up your WooWoo

    Concealed as in not visible. Visible as in you cannot see it--that means the firearm and that includes all parts of the gun. It does not mean that if you look closely enough in a mirror and know you have a firearm that you can then see it. If does not mean wearing a form fitting tight shirt that makes it 100% obvious that a firearm is under the shirt. Use common sense and you will be fine--just do not read more into this very simple idea of CC than is meant to be there--and as others said--read the law in your state.

    To Coumo, concealed means unloaded in a locked box in the possession of the police or in another state.....

  11. Thanks Kelcarry for answering the question. Getting your cc permit in Western NY is still "relatively" simple, pay the fee, get 3 character references, get fingerprinted, have a background check and mental health check run and then wait for the court to process everything. I've been reading bits and pieces of the law as I can find them so if any of you have a link to all of it that would be great. I understand that the gun itself cannot be visible, my question is more towards the printing aspect. Say a bulge vs a shape vs clips from the holster. I'm sure some of it depends on the officer you may deal with but I'm sure the law has some description of this and that there is also a "working" definition and that is what I was hoping all of you could help with.
