    I was standing in the hallway at church one day talking to a friend of mine and some random kid (7 or 8 YO) that I've never seen before and never saw after that ran up to me in the hall and slapped my gun and ran away.

    If I hadn't looked at my friend and asked him did that just happen I would question it to this day
    Random nobody.

Needless to say we were done with the alpacas and found somewhere else to be.

    The struggle is real..

    I routinely wear black undershirts, black holster, black gun, so maybe it can act like camouflage if my shirt was pulled up.

    Children are always an unpredictable factor and those of the AIWB height seem to be more so than other ages. Golf shirts are pretty much a casual wear uniform in this part of the world and so ubiquitous, especially in warm weather (basically three season) as to allow one to blend in seamlessly. Non-gun ball caps are also very common, come in bright colors and much more likely to been seen on grown men that hoodies in Georgia. Although I can see how they would be useful I confess I own a total of zero hoodies. I just don't see how they fit into my lifestyle as a non-teenager (I need a grumpy old man emoji for this).
    Forget about a Call to Saul, you need some Mobettadefense.

    LL, are you carrying strong side all the time? Or strong side at home, and a different method when not at home? I have an 18 mo. old, and AIWB at home is less than ideal for a few reasons already mentioned. I've considered strong side at home, but am concerned about an inconsistent draw.

    The latter. I never really train with strong side so I'm not too worried about the draw.

    My son was in a head-butting phase for a little bit. Know what stopped that? Nailing his forehead on a Glock 19 carried AIWB.

    In my experience, carrying strong-side was worse for printing when chasing my son around. Bending or squatting usually made the grip rather prominent.

    Georgia weather excludes hoodies as an option for 10/12 months. Even these days Iím miserable in a t-shirt (wearing a tank top underneath so my gun wonít agitate my skin). Iíll still throw a loose button-up on for the weekends though.

    Lucky.. I was not AIWB when my son (not quite 5) was head butting. BAM! Head butt to the stones two days after my vasectomy. Blew out all my stitches. Another reason for appendix carry...

    I'm not buying that the "apex predator" is going to be "fooled" by your bright t-shirt triangle. The 99% that we apparently don't care about might, but actual predators do target selection and are pretty good at it. The strung out addict and/or soccer mom we don't care about aren't going to check your waistline, watch your body language, notice how aware you are of your surroundings, etc. The truly dangerous criminal will and will select targets based on risk / reward. Remember that most of these folks grew up with violence. Their house was violent. Their neighborhood was violent. Their school was violent. Learning what preceded violence and violent people looked like was an early developed survival skill for them, which is why they are almost always better at it than younger cops. The cops that get hired today have often never been in a physical fight in their lives and while the academy will start them along the path of what to look for only experience will ingrain it.

    While I agree with the concept of "concealed is concealed", and I also agree that more fabric makes hiding a gun easier, I disagree that "drawing the eye" is going to matter to someone who knows to scan you.
