    Only reason to open carry is for intimdation reasons, or to play out some kind of cop/military fantasy. That's probably better left in the bedroom then out in public.

    Just a reminder - please keep the politics of this in the cave and not out here.


    Asteroids are nature's way of asking "How's that space program going?"

    Holy cow, do you know how dangerous that is?!?!?!?!? Those f'ing ball pits are infested with every germ known to man and probably some that aren't. No sir, no ball pits for my kids.

    Same reason as wearing a seatbelt in a car, wearing a helmet on a motor cycle, or having a floatation device on an airplane. Yes, the odds are likely that you'll never have to use it, but better safe than sorry.

    It's not about being a hero and trying to stop crime, it's about protection of life, and that is it. Too many weirdos out there shooting up malls and movie theatres not to at least be able to carry.

    Re: Permit to Carry Firearm

    Best part is that it basically also serves as a permit to purchase and to transport.

    This is also true. If you have a purchase permit, that has to be renewed every year. The carry permit allows you to buy for 5 years before renewal is needed.

    I keep a loaded fire extinguisher in my kitchen. And I have no intention of ever needing to use it. But I'll be really glad to have it if I need it.

    Re: Permit to Carry Firearm

    I'm a bit lost (and concerned)

    why the need for a CWP for transport during hunting season?

    12 gauge has been loaded and uncased riding in my front seat of my truck for a week or so. Never know when I might see a turkey just off the road on one of the farms, still got my tag. (And no I do not drive this truck in town - strictly a beater/farm truck )

    Edit: For a carry gun I would look at a Springfield XDM or XDS , very good following with these guns. I always said I would rather get a .40 rather than a 9mm because a .40 or .45 you can choose to take deer hunting during gun season.

    With a permit to carry you do not have to unload and case your gun while in a vehicle. Is very nice if you are doing a lot of short pushes spread out on different farms.

    Shouldn't basic firearm safety dictate that you unload and case your gun while driving in a vehicle?

    It's this **** that is ******* scary. You should have your carry permit pulled just for stating that you drive around with a loaded uncased firearm.

    ok - thanks. Never really saw casing a gun as much of a hinderence. But to each his own.

    I certainly would hope that they unchamber the round at the very least

    Law is the law - but otherwise I agree. I hunt, turkey hunt - never really had much need for having it ready at all times I guess. Generally you're not picking turkey off the road. Particularly when it's illegal to discharge from a roadway - permit or not. But again, to each his own.
