    Do you look for carry?

    We often talk about printing, etc. what the tell tale signs are of a carrier, beyond scratching his balls and grunting. But do you look? I've made it a habit to look and see, everywhere I go to know who's carrying or not ("try to")Yesterday, I noticed a cop in plain clothes, with a 1/4" of leather sticking out by his suit coat. I asked him if he preferred shoulder carry. He was startled almost! He said "yes, it's better for my back". We had a short interaction and a good one, ironically peeing together in the bathroom LATER ON. lol. Do you observe your surrounding people? Do you know who is armed and who is not?

    edit!!! I just reread my post after comments. LATER ON. The interaction happened OUTSIDE the restroom. Ha

    Wait, you started a conversation with someone in the bathroom, while you both were doing your business?

    I do check sometimes...never in a restroom...but I people-watch and that's one of the things I'll look for. A weekend or two ago, we were at the Outback in Bloomington and a family sat down at the table next to us. The dad was CC but the chair backs are just low enough to interfere with the grip of a holstered gun--he was having the same problem I was--it caused severe printing of his gun.

    I try to make it a habit, but it's difficult with most people, unless they are OCing or partially OCing, whether on purpose or accidentally.

    Being situationally aware is part of what we do. OCers I notice (most people are looking at their I-Phone/Android device and do not pay attention to ANYTHING!) but that's easy. Printing and holsters below the shirt/jacket are noticeable. I look more for the "untucked shirt 2 sizes too big guys". He, that's me!

    I don't specifically look for guns, but when I walk into a room, I do look at everyone in there to take an inventory of sorts.
