Most shootings happen in close quarters, 7'-11'. With an unloaded gun on your hip, you be better off learning MMA and beat the guy to death. Open carry has more draw backs than benefits, but unloaded is kind of pointless.

I understand the need to exercise our rights. However, unloaded open carry seems like more hassle than it's worth for the trouble involved. Should it be legal? Yes. Is it a sensible thing to do? Not so much.

It's probably better to carry a framing hammer because you don't have to take the time to load it.

I love a good framing hammer, but I prefer a rigging axe.



You can see it on the wall here:

You all make perfect sense. And yeah i wouldnt be open carrying for no reason, maybe if I went camping or something that's pretty much it. I strongly believe we have all the rights to protect ourselves, and let us get a Ccp. I'm am active EMT and an FTO for downtown Los angeles. Sometimes these people here go nuts on us jus because we are wearing uniforms and look like LEO... it gets bad sometimes.

I remember, when hurrican Andrew ravaged Dade County, Florida, that initially the National Guard troops, patrolling the streets were armed with unloaded ARs.

The crooks took some of the guns from the troops.

An open carry, empty gun, is a gun store for a crook. With a little luck, when a gang takes it from you they won't pistol whip you with it.

To open carry in public anywhere is beggin for attention -
Do it & you'll get it
You will not like it

I was given this as a gift, i think it could inflict sum damage....but back to the topic, there will always b those types of people tht want the attention because they feel "cool". I carry to protect myself and my family not to look like a badass
