There's a line between being patient and tolerant, and watching the same debate run on for pages and pages, which falls from opinions, to I have more experience than your opinion, to personal insults.

This topic is very polarizing, with good points made on both sides. I've actually switched sides based on many of the points made here and a state specific forum.

Anecdotal evidence is tough to argue, many of the OC v CC arguments are at best anecdotal, and usually just opinion.

I agree, but that doesn't mean we have to get nasty or insulting about it. If the thread is overloading your tolerance, just skip it. It's easier to just turn a blind eye to it than it is to dig up more pictures of people beating dead horses. It's also more likely to get the thread to rotate out into oblivion if you just don't post when the thread bothers you.

I've read some stuff that has changed my opinion on some things, but it will never change my method of carry. I have my reasons for wanting to stay concealed, and some of those reasons are very personal. I have become more understanding of the OC side of things, but unless my state says OC or don't carry, I will always carry concealed.

But it's pretty easy to find those pics.

I had to explain what happened in the charges of hundreds of murderers and thousands of violent criminals to their immediate family members. I can only remember a total of 6 that were calculated enough in their mo to have staked out the place and been prepared to kill someone else who was armed before accomplishing their main goal. And one of those was a bank robbery.

Only once did i ever see a criminal who attacked and disarmed an open carrier who was not a cop or armed security.

But since it did happen, i recommend the level iii holsters and weapons retention training to all ocers. Nothing makes you feel like more of a b**** than being robbed and pistol whipped with your own gun.

both have a time and place. both have pros/cons, this is one of those personal choices much like what the best firearm is for you. me i oc & cc, just depends on the circumstances.

Thought I had nothing for this thread but was wrong. In some states like AR where I live if you carry while hunting and it's open, it's hunting gear and treated accordingly. If ya wanna carry that 38 snub just in case, it has to be hid and not brought out for any hunting purpose. Have no clue how the new Constitutional Carry law here will change that.

In VA you can only carry a pistol while hunting if you have a CC permit( on you.) Open or concealed.
