    Two words on urban ammo. Business casual. A few years ago it was just one word (suit) but styles change.

    My take (some of the usual stuff)

    1) Wear things that are age appropriate and that you could imagine others in the same environment of the same age wearing.

    2) Nothing bright, nothing with a "tacticool" logo.

    3) No Elmer Fudd "camera guy" concealment vests. The bad guys know what that looks like and you get picked out from a mile off.

    And just remember that the idea is to look like you belong and that you are just one of many similarly unremarkable people going about their unremarkable business.

    Always been an avid user of "HEAT" even before it was professionally taught to me, I'll just add make sure whatever bag you use to transport kit or guns isn't "tactical", nothing more obvious than your super sweet Eberlestock, I've noticed that's the biggest thing overlooked when trying to be the "gray man"

    Greg..... it took me several looks to realize that there were any men in that second picture...... So i suppose their camouflage is perfect.

    If being well dressed is feminine.... Well, then I'm feminine. I don't walk around every day looking like I fell out of a 5.11 catalog. Maybe Gabe and I will do a pic at dinner tonight and you'll see what I mean.

    That was my read too. The dude in the suit could have been holding a Mac 10 and I would still be looking at her.

    You'd have to be lying on the sidewalk to get that particular angle...

    For me to look "normal" out here I'd have to either skip shaving for a week and wear a black hoodie or stuff a pillow under my T-shirt and wear shorts and a baseball hat all year.
