    So I can pick up my gun next Wednesday. But I won't be able to carry concealed for at least 4 months. Maybe October if NC pushes through the no permit required for concealed carry.

    So my question is, given that the proper retention precautions are taken, anyone have opinions on open carry? It's not rare to see it here. I've seen it a bunch in Walmart and lowes lol.

    I fully support open carry (double emphasis on proper retention , and good on you for putting that in there)

    Yeah I wouldn't get anything less than level 2. The holster I'm eyeing has a button for your trigger finger, so when you have a full combat grip you can unholster. Also an adjustable tension screw to control how much force is needed to draw once the lever is disengaged.

    All depends on the person carrying imo.

    No reason not allow someone to carry as long as they r responsible. It's not the guns that r dangerous it's the person w the trigger finger.

    I agree. I'm more focused on open carry here than just the idea of carrying. Some people thing it's dangerous because it's allowing an opportunity for someone to grab your gun, it can be "intimidating" etc.

    In my opinion I see someone with a gun on their hip and I don't feel any different. If anything I think "someone would be an idiot if they tried to rob this store right now with 2 people carrying"

    I fully support it, in this day and age you can pass laws prohibiting open carry, however does this stop someone who is hell bent on using their side arm regardless of any laws that prohibit it? No, if said person was hell bent on committing a crime he has a pretty good idea that the other person is unlikely carrying, pass laws that allow open carry then I bet these individuals will think twice.

    Yeah I mean who's gonna rob a bank if they walk in and see 3 people carrying?

    And sure they can prohibit open carry. Or concealed. But is a robber gonna go "aw shit I guess I've gotta leave my gun at home for this home invasion because it's illegal"

    Liberal logic baffles me.

    I don't understand that mentality. Yes a bad ass robber / thief what ever could pull ur gun.
    They could and can do the same to a cop! So maybe let go one more extreme step. Let's make it that no one including cops, CIA, FBI, any enforcement is not allowed to carry a weapon.

    Personally I pity the ass that tries to take a gun from me or any one allowed to carry. Their more likely to get their ass shot!

    And ur right their would be less crime at the end of the day. A thief would have seconds thoughts of doing it when the saw multiple firearms around.

    Same state and same problem as well.
    A thug can carry concealed and take out whoever whenever ( illegally of course ) so why can't we defend ourselves and others when it happens !! Here's what I think of our Governor's thoughts !!60b1c5c463b5414306e5257c962f558a.jpg

    Our forefathers wrote right to bare arms for a reason. Now politicians want to rewrite our constitution to suit their greedy desires and ambitions.

    I will haul my family to the mountains and live in a cabin in the forest b4 I give up my right to defend my self.
    Come up to my cabin and take it and get a bulletin in ur ass!

    Just conceal carry no one knows if you do it right. Open carry makes you the first person I shoot if I'm a bad guy. I would rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6. Besides it's our right they just think they have to regulate everything. That's just my opinion

    A guy looking to rob a store or bank at gunpoint won't immediately shoot someone that's carrying a gun.

    I mean if you find me a single news story where some POS thug walked into a store to rob it, shot a guy that was open carrying, then robbed the store... I'd change my opinion.

    Lol your right most thugs are scared pussies but I would still rather be safe than sorry. If I were a bad guy and I was going to rob a place and I saw someone was carrying your damn right I would put one or two in them. Thank goodness most people are not like me lol
