Printing is when the outline of your gun shows through your clothing. It may look like an obvious gun, or it may be more subtle, like a corner poking out where your shirt should be smooth, or a lopsided shape that disrupts your silhouette. Even if it’s not obviously gun shaped, printing can make people stop and take a second look at you to try to figure out why you don’t look quite right.
The correct term is “printing,” not “imprinting.”
When your gun is completely hidden inside the envelope of space between your clothing and your body, it’s concealed. Note that concealment is dynamic, and it can change when you move, reach, or bend. To test your concealment, take a video of yourself moving around and see if you can spot the gun.
