not since i did a stint as a uniformed sec guard.
Hey i had bills to pay.
Zendetta, it depends on the county you live in. In SF county, you're fucked, no CCW, no way. Up north in a county like Shasta, it's damn near "shall issue" meaning that if you qualify, you will get your CCW permit.
I didn't see any mention of belly bands so i'll comment on those. I'm tall with a long body so a simple raise of my arms and everyone sees it. It's pretty hard to find cheap shirts long enough. I also work a blue collar job so it needs to be pretty secure. I found a pretty good belly band at a gun show it has breathable material and stays in place solid. I wear it pretty high and it's helped me to carry alot more often too.
Nice. Never heard of them.
