My wife and I went to both of my daughter's maternal grandmother's and maternal grandfather's funerals and burials,
as I knew both of them well before I met the Ex, and out of simple respect for my daughter.

Some of the Ex's family hugged me and thanked me profusely for coming,
while others were cold and gave me "if looks could kill" stares.

Yes, I carried...
Hugs from some, dirty looks for others as well.

And to answer the question in post #7……..

I’m guessing the cold staring killers were mostly in the “non hugging” bunch.

I’ve carried at a funeral as well as at my daughter’s wedding, where I got lots of hugs. A few people hugged my firearm. They all likely knew.

Over the years, I have learned to turn my "packing" side away when hugged... ;)

If anyone has ever noticed, they have never mentioned it... :unsure:

Yeah I used to do that too when I side carried, or I would go in first with my arms/hands low and open forcing the other person to hug with their arms up higher around my shoulders. These days I carry AIWB so it hasn't been an issue.
