I think that most people in the non-gun knowing public give you a second thought when you are wearing a vest. The big thing, in my opinion, is that if you are wearing a vest (or fannypack) is to use the vest. What I mean is that if you are using a vest make sure that stuff is really in the pockets that you will be using. [/quote]
I suppose you mean that one should not wear a fishing vest or photojournalist vest as a fashion statement? Right! For me, it is a substitute for a day pack or a tote bag.
And, there is no way that I would use a bum bag ("Fanny" pack is an offensive term in Europe.) as it is a signal to others, "Hey, this is where I carry my important stuff!" I would just as soon not experience theft on my trip.
