  1. Question about definition of concealed

    I am using my Walther P1, in the P1 holster, as a carry weapons simply because I do not own anything else at the moment. Obviously not the ideal concealable weapon which bring up this question: If the bottom of the holster shows from under my shirt am I in violation of law. The weapon isnt showing, just the bottom of the holster, which could be a buck knife sheath or a cell phone pouch for all anyone else knows.

    What do y'all think. Aside from buying a different gun

    No, I don't think it is.
    But you might want to start looking for a better more concealable holster anyway.

    That's one of those gray areas.

    (6) “Concealable weapon” means a firearm having a length of less than twelve inches measured along its greatest dimension that must be carried in a manner that is hidden from public view in normal wear of clothing except when needed for self defense, defense of others, and the protection of real or personal property.

    There is no law against printing so I never worry about the bulge or possible outline. The lower part of a holster is not a part of the firearm so the firearm is hidden from public view. If it was me I'd just try to find a IWB holster and carry away.

    Of course, any half way 'good' reason it buy another gun is a really good enough reason for me.
