“Privacy – like eating and breathing – is one of life’s basic requirements.” – Katherine Neville
Our advice to students is to live what’s called the ‘Stealth Existence.’ This is a multilayered activity that runs from practicing a low profile in public to keeping one’s ownership of guns to themselves. It’s no one’s business what or how many guns we have, or if we are or aren’t carrying.
The Stealth Existence is a lifestyle.
We suggest dressing in neutral colors, never wearing shirts, patches, or hats with political messages or the names of gun manufacturers on them; same with bumper stickers on vehicles.
Anywhere we have business, we are not the loud, obnoxious customer demanding to see the manager. We are grey, boring, and quickly forgotten.
While traveling, we transport the firearms not directly on our person in bags and cases that don’t alert others to the contents. Tennis racquet, La Cross, snowboard bags – guitar cases and tool bags – all pressed into service, offering no indication to strangers that firearms are present.
