My Oops While Carrying

My dad, my wife, my kids and me went out to eat tonight and before we left I grabbed my LC9 and strapped on my outside the waistband holster. Then to conceal it, I put on my zip up sweatshirt that covers it nicely. Since the temperature outside wasn’t too cold and we weren’t going far, I did not put on a coat. After we got to our table at the restaurant and before I sat down not thinking I unzipped my sweatshirt and hung it on the back of the chair. I immediately felt something was wrong.

After about six seconds or so I realized what I had done my gun was exposed for the world to see. I quickly untucked my shirt to cover it and casually glanced around. No one saw me. It is legal to open carry in Wisconsin so I wasn’t breaking the law. However, if the wrong person saw my gun, it could have been an interesting evening. I think If my pants fell down to my knees I would have had the same feeling. Has something like this happened to anybody else? Did anybody confront you about it? Please tell me your experiences. Please tell me I’m not the only one so I don’t feel so stupid.

I signed her up for the new deal for Self-Defense SHIELD. She is a better shot than I am! That is why I always say “yes, ma’am”

I had to go to the chiropractor today and was in a quandary as to what to do with my weapon. I always wear sweatpants so I can be easily moved into the pretzel position to be cracked and manipulated. There is no way to carry in the waist or in a pocket, and I did not want to wear my carry vest and have to take it off for my treatment so I left it in my vehicle. Just wondering what others do.
