IS THAT A GUN IN YOUR POCKET, OR…. ?
Certain behavioral tics can tip you off that there’s a gun violator in your midst. That is, if you know what to look for!
In this blog, team concealedonline.com lays bare the most common giveaways.
1. Constantly Checking To Be Sure It’s There
Gun violators have a bad habit of continually touching…
… or somehow adjusting their (supposedly) hidden weapon.
They do it over and over, as if the gun could miraculously move on it’s own! This neurotic checking and rechecking can manifest as bumping the weapon with a hand, wrist or elbow – depending on what type of holster is being worn.
The most obvious offenders will nervously palm the weapon, thinking no one could possibly have noticed! Of course, if you’re observant enough, YOU WILL DEFINITELY NOTICE!
2. Weird Walk
Gun violators often adopt an unnatural gait or posture that reveals they’re carrying a hidden weapon.
For instance, if they happen to be packing a long gun in their pants, they tend NOT to bend at the knees. They may also walk funny, hands on hips, due to a weapon secreted away!
A distinctive Quasimodo-like, hunched-over manner of walking is also a good way to identify a stashed weapon.
An alert observer can spot the bulge of a weapon – called “printing” – the outline of a handgun underneath clothing.
When a gun violator walks, be on the lookout for a bulge or gun butt visible as the weapon moves back and forth… or you might notice a bulge under the armpit (in the case of a shoulder holster).
