Thread: Why Open Carry is a bad Strategy

  1. #11
    Cops walk beats alone and drive in a cruiser alone most often in most towns and cities. Cops call for backup when something bad happens just like a citizen calls 911 (which usually goes to the same dispatch).

    Again, why do cops open carry?

    I conceal carry because my wife is uncomfortable when I open carry. However, when I'm alone and open carry I don't think I'm at a tactical disadvantage. If anything, I think that an openly carried gun will deter some gang banger from trying something because they know that you aren't easy prey.

    But, to each his own.

    Police open carry because they have BADGES pinned on their shirt... (Not CCW badges.)

    I like the availability to open carry, just in case my shirt gets hung up covering my weapon. I would rather CC, as noted, just for the surprise factor. Although, OC is probably a little quicker on the draw.

    I agree that open carry could deter some...but i have been in situations where there are some people so stupid or drugged up to reason as '' normal people would''....to each his own but i perfer concealed carry.

    This subject has been debated and debated and debated and debated and debated and debated and debated and debated. I support talking about it as long as the discussion remains civil. So here is my fence-riding opinion. I CC most of the time but now and then I OC. I think that it is an individuals choice. There are times I think that CC is better and other times I think OC is better. I support laws allowing BOTH. Now back to the debate and pass the popcorn.

    There's only one reason to open carry: to get liberal-minded morons used to seeing it! That's it! If you're dedicated enough, you will practice and train to be very nearly as quick to present your weapon from under a shirt, or from wherever. But all that having been said, desensitizing liberal sheep is no justification to forfeit the huge tactical advantages that concealed carry provides you. Think about it. And the question about cops? Uniforms arent concealed; no reason for the weapon to be. Plain clothed cops carry more discreetly. They go hand in hand. If you're not a uniformed officer, your weapon is best out of sight.
