I read one time on ebay that some people use Tommy Bahama brand shirts for this purpose. The shirts are loud (distracting) and run large and baggy. That's all I know about it.

This display of ignorance is even more astounding considering the shooting that took place on Fort Hood just a couple days ago. I guess Denverian doesn't watch the news. Military bases are supposed to be secure, right? Yet we now have another major shooting at Fort Hood to go with the Navy Yard shooting last year and the Norfolk pier shooting just last month.

BTW: Military bases, despite often having a high concentration of government owned fire power, are more or less "gun free zones." All loaded weapons in and around a base are either duty weapons or in the middle of a training exercise. Get caught with your otherwise legal carry weapon on a base and you are looking at a court martial. Perhaps it is time the DoD rethink its own anti-carry policies.

Innocents who are genuinely lost in Newark or Camden get badly hurt or even killed by thugs due to lack of concealed carry and corrupt cops .

I'm assuming you never buckle your seat belt, lock your front door, or look to the sides and behind you when walking in a parking lot; because if you do, you must be a paranoid freak.

Jeans are one size bigger... allows the nice placement of an IWB holster. Same with shorts, dress pants, etc. But it's decidedly easier for a man to get away with it

In New Jersey, its very difficult to get a concealed carry permit. Those who have it are typically cops or people who retired from the armed forces. Fact is that its nearly impossible and not worth ones time to go through the process of obtaining a permit.

Basically, we have the lowest gun ownership within US. I don't want to say more, as it will lead to unwanted political bickering.

Don't confuse correctly with legally.

Concealed correctly means properly concealed, it doesn't matter where you are or what others think.

But no, I've never had to live in NY or NJ.

I understand if you live in some remote area where there is no police protection and wild animals. but that's about it.

Almost any large city meets that description. Police are NEVER there as the crime happens. If they aren't there as the crime is happening so they can intervene, then it doesn't matter if they are 5 minutes or 5 hours away. And the upright walking wild animals are abundant and very dangerous. better move.

Here is a story of a West Virginia woman getting arrested for firearms in NJ:

Cops Arrest West Virginia Woman with Gun, Knife, Ammo in Tow - Police & Fire - Mahwah, NJ Patch

I am not happy about this stuff (Arresting the innocent ). But these situations happen quite often to out of state drivers who concealed carry. If you are driving through NY or NJ, its better to leave your guns at home or find an alternate route around both states.

I carry a purse with a zippered middle compartment big enough for a small revolver. My husband uses a pocket holster (might be this exact one) for the .38 he carries. When he's standing it's not noticeable at all; when he sits you can see there's something in his pocket but the print is smooth.

Of course, half the people in this town open carry everywhere anyway, so total concealment isn't such an issue. :-)

I do. I can't imagine carrying a gun around with me.
I DO have rifles and shotguns up at the cottage. Bears, you know......
