Exposed holster?

This might be better place in the legal forum, but I'm not sure and since it pertains to concealed carry I'm putting it here.

Does an exposed holster count as an exposed weapon? The question popped into my head today, "Does an exposed holster count as an exposed firearm?" If I'm carrying my gun concealed in a OWB holster and the bottom of the holster were to be exposed below my shirt would that be an exposed firearm?

790.001 Definitions.--As used in this chapter, except where the context otherwise requires:

(2) "Concealed firearm" means any firearm, as defined in subsection (6), which is carried on or about a person in such a manner as to conceal the firearm from the ordinary sight of another person.
If the gun is in a holster is it concealed from the ordinary sight of another person? They can't actually see the gun, they will know what it is, but they can't see it.

This thought occurred to me today. I don't carry OWB but was wondering what other's thought about this.

We explained that the critical question turns on whether an individual, standing near a person with a firearm or beside a vehicle in which a person with a firearm is seated, may by ordinary observation know the questioned object to be a firearm.
So would that mean when I see a person who is "printing" with something that is obviously a firearm, they are breaking the law?
