The rash of I got my permit posts, inspired me to ask this, with the holiday coming up. This time of the year when we see friends and family that we have no seen it quite some time and without fail they all want to hug you. So where and it what manner does everyone carry and how to you avoid being made? At least for me most of the family does not know and I prefer it stays that way. I generally carry at 1 o'clock IWB. I attempt not to have it on me at large planned family gatherings, mostly because A) There are just way too many people that will try and hug you and its annoying enough as it is without trying to stop them from getting a pistol grip to the gut and B) Family gathering generally mean much more than 1 beer, so the gun gets left in the truck. However it seems every has that one bubbly friend who will just come bouncing up out of nowhere, or that one aunt who drops by unannounced and is waiting for you when you come in to the door. I have to do either a weird hip turn to keep that that revolver butt away or that weird bend at the waist hug. I've gotten a few looks from weird hugs. So how do the rest of y'all avoid being made?
