Went with the family on Xmas eve to an upscale restaurant. Actually, a world famous upscale restaurant, where you wear coat/tie. Now we are in 2 situations that are unfamiliar to me- an upscale restaurant AND a suit. As in almost all situations, I am CCW my S&W shield 9. Several months ago I switched from SOB cary to a thumb break pancake style, in order to improve access and presentation time. My son informed me that because of the slots (or whatever they are called) in the bottom of a suit jacket, that it is very easy to CCW in this fashion, sit down, eat dinner, get up, and find that you are now open carrying. The obvious solution moving forward (to me) is to continue to wear my unbuttoned carhart work shirt or flannel shirt, and in the future "dine" at waffle house. What I am looking for is the strategy ( or tactic) to explain this to my wife.
