Just wondering... Who would ever want to rob anyone of the stuff they had just bought from Walmart?

They probably would not take the stuff from Wally World, but they would take a nice gun which was 'visible' for their inspection!!! People have been killed for a lot less than that here in our 'civilized' USA!

A woman tried to hold up our local Walmart for drugs. She made it to the parking lot. A fellow from back east in Louisiana tried to hold up our local gun store. He was hit with 23 rounds. Never choose a Western state where everyone is armed to commit a crime.

Sure, this has happened. But, I would venture to say that it is much more likely that they be stolen from your home. Better pack them all up every time you leave the house! ;-)

Agreed. Lock em up or carry them.

You missed the point here. The safest place for a gun is on the person, CONCEALED! If it is visible to a 'criminal' it simply becomes another 'valuable item' he can take, by force if necessary!

JJ, if you choose to carry a full size .45, can conceal it and deal with lugging all that weight around all day, go for it. I found CC'ing my 1911 was a whole different ball game from the GI flap holster and pistol belt I carried with in the Army. The 1911's still my first love, but I rarely CC it any more.

No, I understood your point. Its quite simple actually. I think you missed mine. In either case, it certainly isn't anything to get all wound up about. I just don't think your scenario is very likely, or common. Certainly not as common as all your 'valuable items' being taken by a 'criminal' from your HOME. ;-)

'Common'??? If you are saying burglary is more prevalent than robbery you are correct. But what does this have to do with CC or OC????? It is more 'common' for a criminal to take valuable items they can see rather than valuable items they can't see!
