The ultimate physical equalizer. Puts a 90 lb granny on the same footing as 200 lb criminal.
I can identify with this. You get so used to the pistol on the hip...
Actually did that BEFORE OC was legalized several years back....on a jobsite and needed some parts, ran into a hardware store in Uvalde. Cool morning that had warmed up, so I had taken my jacket off. Local deputy was in the store as well.....he looked at me, glanced down at my waist with a little grin and obviously turned to "look at something of interest". When he finally turned back around, the shirt was over the gun. He just nodded and said "beautiful day, isn't it?"
That's called common sense law enforcement. Kind of a rarity these days.
Actually pretty common in my experience, when BOTH sides are chill, things usually go well.
Next time someone asks, just say "I believe some chit is about to go down. I would leave if I was you."

I was told once, in Louisiana, that I'd be arrested by an "office deputy". I told him that it was not, and never had been illegal in LA, he stated that he'd arrest me, anyway. I figured that it was no use to discuss it further with an idiot.
On occasion, I've seen guys OC at Krogers and this is in Houston, north of downtown. I didnt see any concern from anyone. And in most of these instances, full OC with OWB hip carry. Minimally 4 different times and 4 different men.
Havent noticed anywhere else except where you expect, near ranges in parking lots.

I've slept with mine in an iwb holster before. But I've got a nice memory foam mattress and lots of numb spots from all the surgery.
I was a bit fluffier then too. Lol. I found that a bit of fat in the right spots is a great aid in concealing firearms. I have to be a bit more diligent at 220 lbs than I was at 350lbs. I cant ccw a bofors anymore.
Another point, some of the OC'ers I've seen in both states have done dangerous things, like sitting back towards entrance door in a busy restaurant, obvious GLOCK in non-retention Fobus OWB. While CC'ing in Houston stores, I have twice felt a hand on my main belt weapon. The rig was completely non-visible to others. Once, I turned quickly, suppressing a slap/swat, only to see a little old 80-ish Lady looking bewildered. I have no idea what she thought she was doing with her hand on my hip & belt. I was so glad I hadn't reflexively hit her; would have been very difficult to explain. But I did really have "second thoughts" later. My training was to turn and slap. leVieux
