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've seen two, and both times it was hastily flashed in a careless moment. One guy had it in a belly holster, and he yawned and stretched (I knew that he was a cop beforehand, so I decided to not yell "He's got a gun!") and one IWB carrier that stepped out of his car on a windy day.

I've learned from both of these incidents, and they've made me more careful about how I carry. I know what to look for now, too.
