Printing Doesn't Matter - Until It Does

Recommended Posts

A lot of it depends on where I'm going. I've started carrying my Glock 17 to church, because if I ever have to draw my gun in that setting, chances are the shots are going to be longer range and higher capacity will be in order. I think the single stacks can suffice, if you are just mainly trying to protect yourself and/or family in close proximity, but not in a church setting, where the shooting could very well start on the other side of the auditorium. 

Wearing summer attire and OWB, I have to say the 17 prints a fair amount. Nobody has noticed, except the people that already know I carry. I've had conversations with people about it that didn't know I was carrying until I pulled my shirt up and reviled the gun. Most people just don't pay that close attention to other people. About the only reason I worry about it at all is I don't want to scare the little old ladies or freak visitors out. Most all of the regular members at least have a good idea of who is carrying, and the church leadership knows.

Now just out in general public, I usually swap to my single stack M&P 9mm, and work a lot harder at not printing. I still don't think people really pay attention though. I have a smartphone case on my other side that prints about as much as full size gun. I think one thing that helps me, even if I print a little, is that I'm left handed. It's like when people see something bulging out, they don't associate it with a gun, because to most people it's on the wrong side. Even with me being left handed, it looks weird to me when I see other people shoot left handed.
