Like oc, manual safeties have their place, it is more of a personal choice, as is the choice of revolver or semi-auto. The option should be available, if you want to cc with the safety on, and not one in the pipe, than thats a personal choice, just be aware of the drawbacks.

Basically there shouldnt be any criticism on any of it, just the facts and the choice and leave it at that.
Great answer. But..wouldn't your stance that the clothing slows you down kinda require a stance that a manual safety does the same?

I have not. If your wearing it correctly, no one will know that your carrying anyway.

And history, correctly examined proves out that an openly armed society is far more polite to eachother, sure there will always be crime and criminals. In the old west the main violence was bandits and drunken gamblers, many towns had ordinances against wearing arms in town, but that didnt stop anyone, thats why the derringer was so popular.
Are you saying my signature line does not appear when you read my post????
To say open carry makes people more polite would would infer they are afraid of those who are carrying a gun, this is why I do not agree with this statement and ask that people refrain for using it!
Secondly, the only place where open carry was restricted in the 'old west' was in the 'red light' part of town where the drinking, gambling, and prostitution took place. Just some fact you will learn if you study the history of the anti-gun movement. The exception to this is if there was corrupt political 'machine/boss' in control of the town, city, county, state, or country they would restrict the RTKABA's to control the opposition. This the root of all the anti-gun legislation in this country and most others!!!

Lets assume you are correct, which your not, when you say you have a faster draw from open carry. You lose ALL of that and more by not have the element of surprise on your side. I have been there, saw that, done that, and have scares to prove it!!!

I thought in America they carried firearms for self defence of themselves or families. Not for posing looking for phrase attention or making political statements.

That is my stance, for me, i was beating around the bush on that. I dont feel like arguing, as we are all allowed our oppinions.

I'm good with not arguing. When a person has conflicting opinions on issues I find it interesting to know the reasoning.
