    Well, agree that CC is supposed to be CC. However, if someone "sees" your weapon, do they have the right to grab it? I think not. I see people carrying CC all the time in Louisville, but I don't grab their weapons. If you know what to look for, you can see CC everywhere.

    Indeed, I see them everywhere. Especially the new owners with the $800 handgun stuffed in the $9 "holster".

    Amazing I don't freak out at CC or OC
    If it is CC and printing, I would pay closer attention and if not a threat , continue with my own business.

    Me too, except I'll admit to judging the CC/OC style and choice in weaponry. The other day I was at the Jefferson Mall and saw a guy OC'ing. Of course I HAVE to identify what he's carrying. It was a Kel-Tec in a cheap nylon holster.

    Ha, I've been guilty (except I can't afford $800 pistols)

    I'm more concerned that he didn't see the guy coming, he got lazy & let himself get attacked.
    When I'm carrying I have my head on a swivel just for the particular scenerio since I live in liberal Washington where the hypocrisy is thick as thieves. I worry about printing all the time & I just hope that if something like this happens to me i can react appropriately and not get shot with my own gun.....

    OG, it is still against the law to take something that does not belong to them (anything). That said, the anti-gun jackwagon who "STOLE" the gun (#1 count) threatened two people with a gun (#2&3 counts) and shot a person with a stolen gun (#4 count).:eek: I do hope this POS anti-gun crusader gets the book thrown at him but he will probably plead insanity because he saw a GUN and the anti-gun justice department in KC will not press charges:mad::mad::mad::mad:
    Just like in Lake Oswego, Oregon where a preacher won an AR15 from a raffle, took it to his friend to keep, spewed his anti-gun story of wanting to get these demon guns off the street & was not indicted. He had two counts pending on a newly background check law but was let go Scott free!!!!...... SMH:rolleyes:

    My aunt was at my house, saw the guy next door carrying a gun, wearing camo shorts, she said "I wouldn't trust someone wearing camo clothes and a gun"....I said better than a long beard and a bomb vest, and besides I'm carrying a gun right now...she looked shocked

    In the pants holsters are my favorite. If you know what to look for you can still pick them out, however I have been a cc holder of 16 years and have yet to have anyone say anything to me. That said, when I first started cc, I had a colt mustang pocket lite 380. I kept it in a soft nylon holster and tucked into my hip pocket. I carried like this for several year before I discovered my crossbred inside the wasteband holsters. I often carried that 380 in my hip pockets so much that the outline literally was more faded than the rest of the pocket. no one ever said anything to me. I lived in el paso texas though, so maybe all the illegals were too afraid to say anything!
