I'll probably choose to open carry my pistol anyways since I hate IWB holsters.
What? IWB is not the only way to carry concealed. I've been doing it OWB since I got my license around 16 years ago.

Also, CHL is no more in Texas since open carry passed. It changed over to LTC and all of us with CHL licenses were changed over as we renewed when our CHL expired.
I've practiced carrying with one OWB holster and don't know if I like it yet. Tends to dig into my hip and pull my pants down a bit. lol But then again maybe that's because I only tried it with a full sized pistol. When I get my license I'm going to look into trying some shoulder holsters and wearing a jacket. I might even just opt to keep it in a tactical fanny pack. I have one of those and love it!
I did the fanny pack thing a little and it was okay for me. I actually had a nice leather one until my wife moved it and left it within reach of a new puppy we had. He chewed it up pretty good.

I'm starting to wonder what type of belt you use. There are many folk that carry full size 1911's or other handgun without any issues. I carried a Glock 22 off and on for several years alternating with a 27. A few years ago I switched to .45's (21SF and 30SF). I had an IWB holster for the 27 and mostly only used it for church. I've only carried the .45s OWB and for the last 1-2 years only the 21SF OWB since getting a Safariland 7TS holster that will accommodate an attached light. That and a double mag carrier has been what I've carried without issues is the reason I'm wondering about your belt. Is it a GUN belt?

There is bound to be a small group of people that do not like on body carry and you may be one of those types. Just figure out what works best for you and go with it.

With OC legal now, I think you are correct that you were not breaking any laws, but if that cashier knew what it was then you were not concealed. However, I've been wrong before, so I'll defer to those that know better as to whether or not you were breaking any laws.

I have not been called out before because I've always been concealed except for the few times I have intentionally OCed. There is no law against printing, but prior to OC if it was discernible to the average person then it was not concealed. Now, though, with OC, I don't know any more. However, I would think that if your intention was to be concealed, then too much printing might not be very desirable.
