Those are the ones you always see arguing with the police about their constitutional rights, who aren't helping any of us make the populace more accepting of the right to carry.

totally agree

also the FBI has done studies on drawing and shooting someone who charges at you with a knife. and they determined that if someone is 21 feet or closer and they charge at you with a knife. by the time you draw your gun and squeeze the trigger they'll be right on top of you.

So practice drawing and shooting from the hip. might save your life one day.

It's called the 21 feet rule I believe.

I could care less about comfort. The last thing I want is for everyone around me knowing I'm carrying

Well thanks, gents.

I'm curious about that FBI study. At 21 feet is the opponent already moving or does he start stationary, and is the knife already out or not?
I'd be interested to read it, if you've got a link...

don't have a link for it, but if just google 21 foot rule or something along those lines you'll get tons of articles covering the topic.

Where are all the Arizona peeps at?

I know it's popular there and would see it often when I would visit.

Personally I would never feel comfortable enough to do it myself. I did have a buddy who would have an Open Carry barbeque once a year. It was really cool to put on your "Sunday Best" holster and go have some ribs.

Pa is a oc state and we are fairly liberal about guns but i havent really seen anyone oc'ing. Its crazy easy to get a ccl so that might be the case. $20 bucks some paperwork and about 3 weeks is all it takes. I personally dont and wouldnt oc in public.
