Don't get me wrong if you open carry i just ask you do it responsibly and pay attention to who is around you. I also believe that concealing is better for me i would rather the bad guy not know i have a firearm so I'm not a potential target and i don't have to worry about being taken and used against me and my family. Just my opinion. Thanks for your opinion, and he was useing a skeleton holster with his shirt tucked in it just bothered me. Plus it make some people nervous.

OK - The new CCW has arrived. Glock 22 40 caliber G3. I've been playing with it all day today. Reading the book, taking it apart and putting it back together again, cleaning it (even though it's it new.) working the action and felt it kind of smooth out a bit. Cleaned it and worked the action a while again to get any burrs or bad spots that may be on the slide or impeding the action. Also working the Magazines as they are very tight. Getting it ready for tomorrow or Monday when I can get to the range and shoot a couple boxes of shells through it. Couldn't get my night sights. The smith said that the tool wont fit as the front side is set a mm to far forward. He's checking with Glock to see if there's another tool or if Glock will replace the upper with a properly seated front sight.

Here's a couple of pics.

I believe that open carry may in fact make you less of a target. Who wants to mess with someone you know is armed? Wouldn't you choose another target? As for making people nervous so what? Some people are scared when the wind blows. I learned a long time ago you can't be overly concerned about what others think.

I agree with the people being nervous i don't care if they are or not. But lets say your standing in a gas station and Mr bad guy comes to rob it. He look at you and seen your armed. Your the first target the biggest threat he sees. On the other hand if you conceal you can turn the tables with the element of ssuprise

I go by the theory that Mr bad guy sees me armed and picks another target

That might be true, if he sees you seeing him. If he sees you not paying much attention, minding your own business, first he tags you, now he has two guns. Maybe he has a Jennings held together with shipping tape, and he sees your Colt, Kimber, Beretta, Glock as a step up.

Open carry always makes you a marked target.

My point exactly. I would rather no one know than everyone know. Just ask soldier who gets attacked first he's gona say the guy with the biggest gun and when you are the only on thay see with a gun you got the biggest.

I'll disagree with you till my last breath. If your argument is my guns are better than his so That makes me a target then I'll open carry confidently for the rest of my life. Fortunately my state believes in the constitutional right of its citizens to open carry or carry concealed. I've not seen any data that suggests persons that open carry are assaulted to a greater degree than those not displaying any weapon. If you choose not to open carry than so be it!

Some agree with me, some disagree. On an average day, everyone disagrees with me, so this is a pleasant refreshment.

In this day and age, is it Bonnie & Cliede we have to fear, or J Edgar Hoover?

If we hide it from one side, we hide it from both, and it has gotten to the point, I am more afraid of my gov than I am my enemy's.

I rarely drive anymore. I rarely go out. Seems staying in ones own shelter, any carry, but stay home is the best recipe for success.
