    Interesting chatter among officers regarding OC

    Lots of interesting comments coming from officers from various jurisdictions regarding OC on the officer.com forum: First encounter with Open Carry.. - Police Forums & Law Enforcement Forums @ Officer.com

    Some of the comments are quite disturbing, while others are reassuring.

    no kidding, that is interesting reading! I like the jerk who automatically slams Dep D for asking a question, what's the point of using a forum if you're going to attack people for asking questions!

    I really like this guy! Every time someone makes this case I fall over laughing..

    "In my opinion, the more this OC stuff happens in CA, the more it will make the news. And we all know what happens when news editors get ahold of something they are against....they spin it. Then the politicians pick up on it and make a law. Next thing you know, OC isn't legal at all anymore in the state.

    Again, this is just my opinion, stemming from 45 years of real-world experience." -- Posted by FJDave

    What's the point of having a legal right if your view is to not use it because it might get taken away?? if that's your thought process then you have already allowed the right to be taken away...........

    Interesting. Sounds like the officer from LA has a slight attitude problem.

    +1 Agreed! Unfortunately there are too many like him out there. The authority gets to their heads and they start thinking they can trample all over your constitutional rights... Control freaks and rookies usually suffer from these mental lapses.

  7. just shows their human too,what bothers me is what was brought up about unloaded-open carry,how these people would be good targets for free guns

    Yeah, I just don't see the point of unloaded open carry. But then it is California.

    I can't see the benefit of unloaded open carry of a semi-auto. It would take forever to load the magazine. A revolver w/ a speedloader would be more reasonable, but not great. It might work okay for in the car and be useful in some situations. I think that the Kalifornia law invites robberies if the criminals know that most people OC'ing have an unloaded gun. I'd rather have pepper spray and a collapsible baton than an unloaded gun since the collapsible baton makes a cheaper club with more reach. I'd go with a breaker bar or claw hammer over a gun that most criminals will know to be unloaded.

    Collapsible batons are illegal in PRCA. Not sure about the pepper spray, but I'm sure that's restricted as well. As for OC of a unloaded semi-auto, it's not too bad. You can have a full magazine on your person, just not inserted into the gun.

    I stay away from PRCA whenever possible.
