IMO the bad guys weapon should aways be the first drawn. ( I feel that is what kind of makes it self defense lol)

Oh not meant to start an argument lol just wondering where you are coming from

I've opened carried for years, no issues.. Even when we had to have LEOs around during home foreclosures and automobile repossession. As far as everyday Joes, I've had the evil eye a few times but far more ppl ask curious question, honestly most either don't notice or act as though they don't.

So lets say you are dining at Luby's restaurant and a pick-up truck comes driving through the window, and the driver gets out of his truck and starts blazing away at anyone and everyone in the place. Intent on killing everyone who looks at him. He sees you with a group of people at a table and sees your gun on your hip.

A- Does he overlook you and go on to the person sitting next to you....

or

B- Does he try and take you out before moving on to the 'un-armed'.......


There is always more than one kind of self-defense scenario.

I know of no one who open carries who has gotten shot because they open carry.

You guys are going to make me work, aren't you? I'll be watching this thread closely.

Never heard of it myself. It'd be nice to see people actually use some form of sense instead of basing an opinion on what ifs.

If you drive a nice car, it may get stolen.

If you have a nice house, it may get robbed.

If you have a pretty girlfriend, she may cheat (goes both ways I reckon).

None of these are proven likelihoods, but you could what if them all to death.

I think the risk of being sought out or accosted by some gangster thug punk bitch because you open carry, is about as negligible as your car exploding in an accident because your keep a full tank of gas.

Control your risk factors, and do what feels most comfortable.

It's the middle of the night. The sound of breaking glass awakens you from a dead sleep. As you're grabbing your nightstand gun you see two people at the end of the hall. One has a rifle and the other one is carrying a sack. Which one do you shoot first?

I would throw my lawn dart expertly at the one with the rifle. That is very different than open carrying. That is a confrontational, life threatening home invasion. Apples and oranges.

Thank you so much. I hope it cools off a little so I can have a dog shipped to me from LV.
