Thread: carrying your gun

  1. I like 6shootercarry's response. It covers just about all situations I can think of for physical condition of the gun.
    The only other options are concealed or open carry, but the physical situation of the gun is important regardless.

    Personally I carry guns that are drop-safe and offer single and double action and manual safety options.
    I change the physical condition for the situation I am in and set safety off, double action trigger when I am on high alert and have to walk into a confrontation.

    That being said, I have never encountered a situation where I had to draw down on someone. I was prepared, and I'm sure nobody ever knew I was armed. That is what I think is the ideal situation. Do not escalate the problem. Do not hesitate to protect yourself.

    Capitalization and punctuation for readability's sake.

    ... ...

    On a positive note, it is now obvious that you aren't sexist--you seem willing to correct just about anyone.....
    i am trying to help the person post in such a way to make their posts more readable as you can see typing without reguards to capitalization makes the posting alot harder to follow so does not using punctuation or typing in all caps i could care less if someone uses capital when they should use capitol or incorrectly uses the verbs lie and lay or sit and set what i was trying to help the op with was readability

    Some of the other posters decided to railroad this topic, so let me get back to helping the OP.
    1- You are new to the forum and perhaps to the internet, computers and typing. Do not use the "CAPS LOCK" function on your keyboard. Typing in ALL CAPS makes reading the post harder to read. To produce capital letters, instead hold down one of the SHIFT keys on your keyboard (There are two of them, no need to use both of them at the same time though. Either will do.) type the letters you wish to capitalize and then release the SHIFT key to resume typing lowercase letters.
    2- You are from Las Vegas. Please note that while the state of Nevada does have a "preemptions law" in effect, the City of Las Vegas appears to have some type of exception and can pass local laws different than the rest of the state. It's not a situation that is ideal, as it makes the legal landscape much more cumbersome, but apparently it is what you have to deal with in your home state.
    3- Nevada is a "Shall-issue" state. If you meet the requirements for a concealed carry permit, the state shall issue it to you upon completion of the legal application process. When you have the permit you can carry a loaded concealed handgun within the terms of the permit.
    4- I am curious about the sidearm you intend on carrying.

    A fine example of the Tennessee public education system at work. Oh wait..... that was intenshinull. Nevermind.

    In Nevada you can open carry your handgun locked and loaded with no permit required. Clark County requires RESIDENTS to register their guns.

    OK exactly what was that supposed to mean

    Well... I had assumed that this:

    I'm not completly familur with nevadas weapon laws, but did you have to take a class to get your permit ? if so you could ask your instuctor, or inquier at your local sherriffs office
    Was posted mocking the OP's lack of capitalization and spelling skills. So this:

    A fine example of the Tennessee public education system at work. Oh wait..... that was intenshinull. Nevermind
    was a post poking fun at your poking fun of the OP's post.

    Now, if this:

    I'm not completly familur with nevadas weapon laws, but did you have to take a class to get your permit ? if so you could ask your instuctor, or inquier at your local sherriffs office
    is truly how you do write in everyday life, then I am sorry to have offended you.

    WTF??? Is this an online grammar class?
    Get over yourselves...

    To the OP: Reading and understanding the laws in your state can be a daunting task, but being aware of what is allowed and legal and what is not permissible is important.

    As far as how to carry, That depends on your level of comfort with the firearm and your ability to use it. It's a tool not a magic talisman or shield against the evil that man and women do. Learn how and when to use it.

    Seek answers... Leave the spelling to the experts...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    You just do't get it. You are not the administrator of this web forum, this IS NOT AN ENGLISH CLASS of which you would have already failed. Despite attempts from several other people you continue to incorrectly spell the word ""a lot".
    If you don't like how someone writes, types, grammar or what ever you have the CHOICE to not read the post. However, you do not hav the right to continiously cut down other people just because their English abilities, capilization or puncutiation does not suite you. You need to check your own English skills as they are NOT what you THINK THE ARE.
    I am sad for you G550AE. You must be a very lonely person who has nothing better to do than make a POOR attempt to be an English teacher, cut others down and TOOT YOUR OWN HORN.
    I personally challenge this forum to boycott contact with G50AE since their objective is to correct one's English rather than be a part of this forum as it was intended to be.
