Plaxico Burress thought it was cool to carry a gun. It got him lots of rewards. He's lucky he still has all his bits.

I use a 45 LC for deer hunting. Single action Ruger. 300grain bullet at a little over 1300fps. Great cartridge! Just make sure you have a good grip on the gun.

Is that a handgun in you pocket or are you just happy to see me?


For all of the Heavy .45 Colt +P fans check out Buffalo Bore Ammunition.

WARNING This ammo is NOT SAFE in a Taurus .45 Colt Judge or Tracker!!!

This is safe in a Winchester or Marlin 1894. In a 16" 1894 Winchester 300 gr. Speer= 1,650 fps.

I don't carry a handgun, I feel with 4 little kids running around me all the time the chance of an accident greatly outweighs the chance I might get to kill somebody on the street. I live in a rural area and rarely go into cities or bars or areas where I feel unsafe. I'm also an unlikely target for a criminal, nobody wants to mug a 300 pound Charles Manson. If I lived in a city I would carry 100% of the time.

While I can agree with all the reasons for carrying, I can't see how "Open Carrying" enhances any of them???


Don't know if it enhances or not. It's a personal choice.


If I'm going into an area that causes me some concern, I will still occasionally carry a gun....always knowing that chances are good that I won't have it with me on that ONE occasion when I really need it... (shopping in a mall, at the supermarket, etc) UNLESS I commit to always carry.


Good reason to always commit to carrying it :)

I used to but it's just too much work vs practically no threat any more. (funny....I'll occasionaly bump into someone I arrested years ago & invariably they remember me & not vice versa.....& even stranger it turns into a happy experience!...Almost like I represent a long-lost part of their life that they have moved on from!....No animosity! :)

(very similar I guess to a WWII documentary where some old GI's get to meet Germans or Japanese they fought against....who tried to kill each other!!........always becomes a very friendly encounter.....Two sides who fought one another but had no personal anger against the other individual. Really a very strange, but intense human encounter!

I personally prefer the passenger seat carry method or I tell thewife unless she wants ride in back then put the gun in the glove box. She looks at me funny sometimes when were running late and I have to run back in the house to grab one of the guns, I just ask here if she thinks I should bring a carbine too! Im paranoid and still think the laser weilding robots are a threat too. Crazy as I am New York still saw fit to give me a concealed carry permit. I shoot a couple types of competitions and shoot guns all the time for fun, But i never really carry concealed. I will make this reccomendation to the original poster if your gonna carry outside your waste buy a Blackhawk Serpa holster I use one in competition now and if I were gonna carry thats the animal to try. It is adjustable for every position and has a positive trigger guard lock that wont let it fall out or most important wont let a bad guy(or pissed wife) just grab it and use it on you. jim

Remember this.... Guns are supposed to be comforting, not comfortable. I carry a Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special 1911 in a Milt Sparks Summer Special IWB holster. It is the finest fighting handgun there is. It will help me get back to the rifle (M1 Garand) I should have never left behind in the first place.

A good friend was a United AL pilot after a career with the Marines. As the pilot he was always
informed of how many passengers were carrying. This could include sky marshals, ag inspectors,
FBI, you get the picture. All disclosures were confidential, so nobody new who was who. On
one flight out of Dullas he had 38 passengers that were packing. If somebody got cranky that
flight the plane would have looked like Swiss cheese.

You always have to inform the flight crew if you are carrying & the pilot has the right to ask for your firearm & return it after the flight. Justice Dept policy was to always decline that offer & just take another flight.....An airline captain has complete authority over his aircraft. I never once had a problem or knew any other federal agent that had such a problem though. (often times they are happy to have you aboard & will ask you to sit near the back of the plane to act as a Sky Marshal.)

Open carry makes people nervous, I know it's legal in PA and in VT and Florida last time I checked, when you see Bubba with 2 revolvers cowboy style hanging off his size 54 belt and he looks like he just consumed a cooler full of Pabst it's a little hairy if your not used to it.

I'm all for open carry of firearms, but if you're drinking or drunk and carrying (open or concealed) I've got a big problem with it.

I see it as little different than DUI.

The choice to use deadly force should not be made by those who are impaired.
