It's becoming apparent now who this group is and what they really want.
We're an open carry state.I've had my carry permit for a while, (got it so I could take a pistol into the woods during muzzle loader season) but never felt the need to actually do it around town. I'm reconsidering that policy now.
As far as getting it for use in the woods, its' a quirk in the law, but centerfire ammo is NOT allowed in the woods during muzzy season unless you have a carry permit. If you do, even a 44 mag is fine. (as long as you don't shoot deer with it) I considered just getting a black powder revolver as they look like they would be fun, but haven't done it.We're an open carry state.
On Saturday, our son is leaving the house for a trip to Chik-Fil-A & he has a revolver strapped to his belt.
I understand and agree with this.Carrying your pistol out in the open in public places only draws attention to yourself, not necessarily in a good way. It also makes you a target. When I carry, I always do so with my pistol concealed.
Back when I worked on Memorial Drive near Cabbagetown, we used to open carry into the package store there. Every time at least two young guys would leave the parking lot.On the other hand,,, Bad guy bops into a liquor store to rob it and sees 25 people all with open weapons on their belt,,, he might just turn around and leave. Ah for the days of the old west when nearly everyone carried a sidearm to shoot snakes,,, or bad guys!
