    Great words Al, can't put it any plainer then that. Just wish SC would understand the message concerning OC, It's a Right!

    I could say the same for a number of states. Texas, Florida, Indiana, Hawaii, Illinois, New York, and more than a few others. The reason I mention Indiana, you need a permit to OC there. So it's a a privilege in Indiana, as well as some other states, like Minnesota, Tennessee, Mississippi, Utah, and Georgia.

    But I keep hoping others will follow the example of Arizona and Alaska. :)

    Is that like, "Four legs good, two legs bad."?

    I couldn't resist an Orwellian refferance.

    Actually, I think it's more like Ford vs. Chevy. :)

    You guys knock it off before I pull out my banning stick. I've been through enough already this week and won't be tolerating much more.

    See, I can't even type a complete sentence at this point! I'm really looking forward to this week being over!

    Anyway, lets get this thread back on subject. If you want to flame with each other go somewhere else.

    I've had my share of bad weeks, last one being 4 weeks ago, when I fell and broke my ankle.

    Anyway, I don't think we're going to get everyone to agree on Open Carry. It's probably the biggest single issue that could potentially rip the 2a community in half. I think the best thing, for everyone is to simply agree to disagree. It will take time before we are shown who's right, and who's wrong. Until that happens, it's just conjecture for now. Myself, I will OC and CC, depending on weather and the location. I'm sorry, but there are SOME places I don't feel it's appropriate to show my gun.

    That's my opinion, and I'm sticking to it.

    OK. On "target" and succinct.

    Against OC. Why?

    1) Why give the BGs a heads up on your capability to resist their efforts? (Or a first target to take out?)

    2) Why give any number of society's "busy bodies" a reason to pull out their cell phones and dial 911 in their usual reaction to seeing a gun? (EEEEWWWWW! A GUN!)

    3) I'd hate to give a pickpocket an easy mark. I don't run so well any more to try to catch a "grab and run" operator.

    4) I don't carry to make a "Political Statement". I carry for tactical considerations.

    Simple as that.
