CCP: What happens if...

Okay, so I'm not a LEO. Presuming that you 'think' you have concealed your pistol on your person, what happens if someone (another citizen) spots your carry 1911, especially if you're in a *very* public place.

I'd carry more often, however, I *am* afraid of having joe shmoe or jane shmoe cry out that "HEY - he has a gun!" phrase.

Now in some places this could induce panic or a riot - in which, correct me if I'm wrong, then this could bring a hefty $$$ fine on my part.

(Okay, so I've been to McDonald's where several feds hang out. They are in suits wearing their SIG's on a pancake holster - very proudly I might add. No one says a thing. So, is this possibly an over-reaction on my part?)

Just for the record, whenever I carry my 1911, I make sure it's damn secure and very well hidden.

Is this just a fear that we all have accept when we carry?

I have been carrying concealed for 5 years ( 1991A1 compact ) and have never been spotted yet. Only the people who really know me know that I carry. I was paranoid at first but when day I was driving and said to myself " Oh crap..I forgot my gun...but I didnt ..it was there on my side...it must be that Alessi Talon+ holster that makes me forget it's there sometimes ! A good belt goes a long way in hiding the fact that you are carrying . I found this out really quickly!

be safe..be alert..be armed !!
God Bless the USA & our armed forces !
