Smartcarry. They think it's me.

Sure, people have got a feel of it, never had anyone say anything.


Yup. Who cares. Here, about every third person may have a pistola on them.

Before I joined the "X" club, my wife and youngest daughter gave me hugs.

Was almost 8 years before my wife made contact with the pistol.

I was putting gas in her car and she stepped past me to toss something in the trash can as I was puttin the nozzle back and she "caught me" by surprise, and I did not get my "deflection" in time.

She asked; "Is that a gun?! I said "Yes". She asked "When do you start carrying that?!" I told her "Everyday for almost eight years." She said: "I never knew." Daughter found out from her mother.

Concealed means concealed.




"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Oh yea, returning to work after a vacation. A female co-worker came at me blathering something about how glad she was that I was back. (she despised my fill in)
I glance up and see Her, full speed ahead, arms outreached going high, I went low... but not low enough, she was shorter and I was at a bit of an angle to her. My left hand made it over her right arm and around her back, but My right hand landed fully on her rather ample left side boob. Oh well, too late to adjust now. Hug and squeezes continued and she didn't even flinch... but she never hugged me ever again!



Deplorable before deplorable was cool!

I usually turn my gun side away and hug with the other side, even if they try to hug the other way, I lead the issue, kind of like leading while dancing.
I also usually put my gun side hand down over my piece so they could not make contact with it.

Putting my hand down over my gun is something I have been doing lately. It seems to work.

Most people I am hugging know me well enough to know I could be carrying. So I don't worry. If it bothers you, go low, get under their outstretched arms.

Lean into it if you see it coming. More shoulder, less waist.


Or if busted, just say you're "happy to see them".

I had an old girlfriend hug me and hit me with the Mae West line "Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?" I told when I carry the gun is behind my left hip. She thought that was an hysterical answer.

Politely explain that you are a “carrier” and the CDC thinks it might be contagious. Chances are you will not get a hug.
