I googled that. Got some strange photos of mostly naked women. Perhaps you could provide a description or photo of what you're talking about. I am not familiar with it.

Without a cover garment?

Would that be considered open carry?

I have an IWB holster on order. Not a great one, but enough to try. I have my doubts. I've been carrying OWB for years.

So, is the question related to IWB or to not using a cover garment? Personally, I do not want my gun to show. I makes wusses nervous, lets bad guys know I'm armed, I lose the element of surprise if needed. $0.02

Hey Insta-Gator, I also tried googleing it but I couldn't find the photos of the mostly naked women. Perhaps you could provide a better description of where you found them.

My question would be why? If I'm going to open carry (it is legal in Ohio) I'm going to use an OWB holster.

Doesn't make much sense to me. But what do I know!

No, we don't want to repeat that experience. Not that I have a problem with mostly naked women, but I believe these ladies were candidates for plastic surgery and, well, were not pin-up material, if you catch my meaning.

How long did you look before you realized they weren't "pin up" material.

Not long at all. If I'd been 15, maybe I'd have stayed a round a little longer, but now .... not a chance.

Ha,ha ... I can see where you might think that. There were some pictures of IWB guns, cut I didn't see anything that made it a "Virginia Tuck" vs any other IWB. At first I though naked women came with the holster if you bought it in Virginia, but couldn't find the connection.

In Virginia if you drank you have to open carry so you tuck your shirt inside of the holster, But I thank if you are going to drink you should leave the gun somewhere else.

You sure about that? I can carry concealed into a bar here in Ohio, but can't drink. I wasn't aware of a state where you could drink while carrying. I don't think it's a good combination.

It's legal to drink while carrying here, but illegal to discharge weapon if you've been drinking.

Of course, if I discharge my weapon at all, there are larger issues to deal with.

For the record, I'll have a beer or maybe two at a restaurant at dinner, but I don't carry if my primary mission is to consume alcohol.

In the wonderful state of Illinois you can't carry in a bar or even a restaurant if more then 50% of their income is from alcohol.

We can carry in a bar where 100% of their revenue is from the on-site consumption of alcohol as long as we obtain permission from the owner/manager upon arrival.

Some might think there would be gun fights in bars every weekend, but there is not. Almost every shooting reported in the local news is a domestic situation or conflict between people who know each other, not strangers in a bar.

In the Show Me State {Missouri}it is a felony to have a loaded gun if you have been drinking and a misdemeanor to have an unloaded gun if you have been drinking...A friend of mine had too much to drink and decided to sleep it off in the back seat of his pickup with the motor running for warmth.He put his pistol in underneath the rear seat and a few hours later a LE officer pulled into the parking lot where he was sleeping it off and issued him a dwi and possession of a loaded firearm {class c felony}while intoxicated.Leaving the truck running even if you're in the back seat is still considered driving in Missouri.

That's pretty much the same as Ohio. A friend of mine got an OVI. He too was sleeping in his car. It wasn't running but his keys were in the ignition.

The sad part is he only blew a .043 and our state is .08 but since we are CDL holders the limit it .04 whether your on the clock or not.

Having the key in the ignition while intoxicated is DUI here, even if the engine is not running.
