    While reading the original post I was more distracted by the Jar Jar Binxs accent.

    I was wondering how snappy the LC380 would be.
    I have the LCP and that is a bit snappy. I also have the LC9 and don't think it's that snappy.

    So Luke removes all out paragraphs.

    So it saves file space.

    Well, I guess that is just the way the forum works.

    Oh well, I guess I won't try to enter any paragraphs.

    Thanks for the info, saved me a lot of time.

    Since open carry started in Oklahoma on November 1, 2012, I have seen a total of two folks open carrying and one of those was in WalMart. I am glad it is an option here now, but most folks still carry concealed.

    Pesky paragraphs.

    keeping it Brief aplologies for missspellings etc my lap top is old yet still functions for the most part, however some times it will miss a letter because I dont hit the key hard enough. But Enough of that. My whole intent of the post was that it was a positive experience. I was in plain clothes but it would not take a rocket scientist to know that I was leo. The car with the lights and Badge makes it hard to hide it. I had a very pleasant 15 minute conversation with him after he introduced him self. Again I was very friendly and nonjudgmental. I for one and just my opinion do not care how some one carries as long as it is done legally. There are advantages to both methods and they I wont get into that. Again I just wanted to comment on how sad it is that law abiding armed citizens are on the offence

    It never occurred to me that the OP would have been in uniform, primarily because I wouldnít have been. While Iím not a cop there have been times where Iíve had to attend training in Denver wearing the company uniform and I have always made it a point to hit the bathroom and change into street clothes before leaving.

    (See How hitting "Enter" works?)

    If the OP was in uniform that raises questions as well, in Colorado sworn peace officers have jurisdiction through out the state. A CSPD cop could arrest me for OC in Denver but that may not be the case in the OPís location. If I were in Lincoln Nebraska and an Omaha cop approached me Iíd wonder why.

    (worked here too.)

    Leaving all that aside If a cop in uniform approached me at all my first thought still wouldnít be that he intended polite conversation and Iíd still be a little on my guard .

    (Here as well)

    As for the paranoia aspect, I had a guy walk up to me asking for directions until he had closed the gap at which point he attacked me. Let that happen to you one time and you will never let a stranger get that close to you again.

    Glad I neither live nor work where your from! In all seriousness Harldy sounds like a pleasant place to be, But I guess each area is what the people make of it. In my neck of the woods we have a license to carry a hand Gun. The law is silent on the method of carry, again the important thing is to carry not to argue about the semantics of methods for carrying. While some ill informd will tell you its illegal unfortunately ignorance exist most everywhere and in the least acceptable places.

    Just wonderng after: this

    As for the paranoia aspect, I had a guy walk up to me asking for directions until he had closed the gap at which point he attacked me. Let that happen to you one time and you will never let a stranger get that close to you again.

    Were you tranformed from beng a liberal? You know how the saying goes all it takes is for a liberal to experience a crime and all of a sudden they are all for the 2nd ammendment and taking responsibility for protecting ones self and family!

    I think you’re missing the point entirely. I take no exception with the person who was OCing, I take exception with you for approaching him. The fact that you approached him as a uniformed, or at least clearly identifiable, police officer changes the equation only slightly and still not enough that folks are going to see you as a kindred spirit who just wants to shoot the breeze about gunz.

    This discussion has happened on this forum before numerous times the point I’m trying to get across here is that not everyone is like you. Not everyone wants random strangers attempting to interact with them at Wal-Mart and not every one is going to take your advances in the spirit you intend.

    See that's what's great about America you can take exception and it changes nothing. Your opinion; your exception real simple overall in the grand scheme of things it ceases to be important to any one other than you. By the way thank God not every one is like me! It would get real boring real fast. Again reverting back to my original statement (paraphrased just for you) where you live must suck! But where I live people often acknowledge others and some times they might even strike up a conversation with someone they don't. Know. Last time I checked a stranger is sometimes a friend you have not met yet. Low and behold if you talk to some around here who routinely open carry they will tell you flat out that that they do so for educational purposes and to interact with the public in courteous respectful way. Another thing attitude is every thing. Just in case not that it matters to anyone but myself I actually prefer seeing someone open carry. There is no grey area you know they are armed and there is no quessing. Just a side bar but when was the last time you saw a criminal open carrying in a proper holster? But again just my preference but again I don't care how someone legally carries just that they do if they are so inclined.

    It takes them back out. If you look at my original post the last sentence is on a new line. During edit I inserted a blank line to delineate a paragraph but when I clicked "post" it disappeared. I tried various html and markup paragraph delimiters awhile ago to no avail. So I gave up. It's Luke's forum, he must be saving money by compressing the text so I can't blame him.
