    It seems only you have the time and money to waste going to jail if you ccw "everywhere." Maybe you don't care about the infringement set forth to ccw, but I do. So I normally open carry. I want the element of deterrence on MY side. So while you can play catch up cowboy quick draw with your surprise after you have been chosen a victim, I'll safely be left alone while "some armed punk" chooses a ccw person.

    Firefighterchen, you obviously don't realize who has blessed us with his presence. It's obvious that thru is the self-proclaimed internet champion of the "element of surprise" quick draw! He's so fast, he doesn't even need to keep his gun loaded! Imagine the bad guys' surprise when he draws his unloaded gun!

    I am surprised thru didn't call himself "The Waco Kid" after his hero and mentor. As thru sees himself:

    As others see thru [Hey! That's a pun! "Sees thru!" :-)] in reality:

    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.

    i don't waste anytime by going to a un-American place where my 2nd A is not honored. i will not give my money to such a place. i don't know what you mean about going to jail. but in most states a business can post their property against guns. if you go in there armed, then you are breaking the law.

    Now please carry and carry often, so don't get me wrong. if you are uncomfortable carrying as an honest person and are worried about the sheeple, then go ahead and CC, but just realize why you do it

    as far as "wanting the element of surprise", i have heard that junk before. that just means you want to shoot someone sort of like a booby trap. you are making yourself a soft target so you can be robbed. believe me they would have to take their eyes of you for more then half a second to uncover and get your firearm out

    but again please carry always, no mater how you do it

  5. hey NAVYLCDR, i just wanted you to know i literally live in Mayberry. i could tell you stories

    I carry a M&P 40, and I have had some mothers at the mall commenting how kids are at the mall and I should know better....whatever.

    It's for the children,Doc!

  8. Our malls post no firearms. Our state has concealed and open carry. I do not go to any posted mall if it can be avoided. I shop online first. If the brick and mortar stores want my business......then be firearm friendly. I would open carry everywhere if it was allowed.

    That's when you respond, "Exactly ma'am, if any bad guys come around while I'm here, there won't be any left to harm your children."

    sorry to be OT. but, this is one argue, i just don't get. how can me carrying a firearm, harm any Children. i mean really, will the gun jump out and kill children when it sees them? will they (children) fall over dead by seeing someone responsibly carrying

    Of course, this is under the assumption that your state allows OC legally without, or in some cases, with a license.

    Here is a map, courtesy of Open Carry.Org:

    I voted, "No," for 2 reasons. First, the local malls have the stupid gun buster signs up, so I don't go there. Second, I don't open carry anywhere except at home or in the woods.
