    I tend to favor premptive movement followed by heading straight for the can.
    I read somewhere about twenty years ago that NYC detectives were quite adept at surreptitiously moving their snubs from coat pockets to other concealment locations when necessary.
    Donít remember any other details or who wrote the article.

Iím paranoid about this and trying to figure out how to handle it.
    Switch before going inside. Can be before leaving the vehicle, or if the walk is in the dark, during the walk.

    Open car door and exit, then stand with the door blocking the view and do the transfer.
    I just kinda felt like shootin' somebody, Matt, and he was making hisself awful handy.

    I was usually wearing a top coat when I was pocket carrying, but I would just sit at a booth and put the coat on the bench seat between me and the wall and then place my hat on top of the coat.

    Luckily, where I live now winter carry isn't really a thing.

    NC goes with "as many as you can comfortably carry" as a limit, at least in the summary of gun laws.

    Which is weird phrasing. But permissive, at least.

    I've carried two guns on more than a few occasions, but it is usually for a very specific set of reasons. The most common is driving. Rather than move my primary gun around, I will instead opt for wearing a shoulder holster with a smaller gun in it. I strongly prefer rigs which you can draw straight down from, with some practice you can access the pistol worn in a shoulder holster with either hand.

    Alternatively, a pocket carried pistol in my vest/coat/hip pocket - the LCP shines in these situations - is flatter and easier to draw than a J-Frame from a pocket.

    That said, if I someone told me I could only carry revolvers for the rest of my life, two revolvers tucked on either side of my belt buckle would work just fine. I'd probably have to have a lower profile clinch pick belt wrap sheath made, but otherwise it would work fine.
    Seriously guys, are we not doing 'phrasing' anymore?
