    Yep, that's what got me doing it in the first place. I'm a big guy and I can't find anything that actually conceals it well. To be perfectly honest, a gun under a shirt that's not concealed very well makes me a little suspicious.

    Unless that person happens to be a cop and they unlawfully detain you for doing nothing but abiding by the law.

    Yah, if I was in Commiefornia I could see that happening. Here in NV our cops generally support armed law abiding citizens. I've got pulled over for speeding twice and each time I declared the weapon right off. They never even asked to see it.

    What, are you in High School? Doucher's, really? If you take the time to read my post instead of whining about it, I didn't tell him to "DO" anything.

    I think the OP further explained his purpose in his subsequent post's and I understand a bit better why he did it. I still would not do it, but that's just me, and at least a few others.

    Doucher's! Unbelievable!

    same reaction I got when stopped by LEO, declared firearm, and no other comment was made by LEO

    I CC OWB with a shirt or jacket over the piece. No criticism of OC, I'm just more comfortable with it covered. Since in WA State either is legal, I'm not concerned if someone "makes" me. Preventing casual notice is all I care about. If I "show" when reaching for something on the top shelf, or expose the extra mags while putting my wallet away it's no big deal. I just prefer CC as a matter of personal preference.

    Update:

    It's been nearly a month of OC now and I'm very happy to report that there hasn't been a single instance where I got a negative reaction. In fact, I can categorize the comments I've received into just two categories; those that wanted to know more about my gun, and those that wanted to know more about what's involved with carrying.

    I never thought I would find myself in a position of being a spokesperson for CC or OC, or even self defense, but I happily go out of my way to answer all questions posed to me. As seriously as I take my responsibility in carrying a loaded weapon in public, I'm also taking the responsibility of being an advocate for self defense via a firearm just as serious. I'm one of those types that thinks society is safer when law abiding citizens are armed, but I also think society is not better off when irresponsible, immature or outright stupid people are walking around with one.

    Good for you. Another positive spokesperson for gun rights and especially being armed is always a good thing.

    I am curious as to whether the questions come from gun people or non- gun people?

    That was the thing that surprised me the most. A lot of the people I talked to seemed to be in the non-gun category, but their questions and comments were always positive. I've probably been to a hundred or so places with my gun clearly visible, including my bank, and the only vibes I was picking up were good one's. Most people had no idea that it's legal to OC in NV but were fine when I explained that it was.

    The most interesting conversation I had was with a waitress at the Gold Dust West casino in Carson city. She brought up the incident at the IHOP that happened a few weeks ago and told me she sure wished someone like me was in there when that nut started shooting. She asked me if I would actually shoot the guy if I found myself in that kind of situation. I told her that I would have responded instantly. I think it was at that moment that she actually understood the benefit of an armed society. The IHOP tragedy is still painful around here.

    Interesting response from the same person that posted:

    The general public is not ready for Dodge City, yet!

    Either way is good with me, I don't care. But the fact remains, in TODAY's society, 'in your face' OC is not the way to achieve privacy.
    What happened to "taunting", "in your face", Dodge City", and "shocking folks into submission?"
