  • Open Carrier Robbed of Gun

    Situational awareness, beware of strangers bumming anything.

    For the record I have no issues with OC, to each their own. But even if it were completely legal here in Florida I would still CC.

    A man openly carrying his new handgun was robbed on a Gresham street by a man with a gun of his own.

    They said a man approached them and asked for a cigarette. Talk eventually turned to the victim's new purchase, before the robber pulled his own gun from his waistband and said, "I like your gun, give it to me," according to police
    .

      Open carry a 22? Sounds like he was a little more concerned with showing off his new toy then he was with self defense.

          See if you don't have that gun Velcrowed to your butt that is what happens.

          Open carry makes sense in the woods but in the city you lose the element of surprise. Foolish in my opinion.

            I'm not against open carry. But, I do think it screams "Look at me, I have a gun". I prefer discretion, myself. Better not to make a scene. JMO

              Sig says it for me. I prefer the element of surprise. I have to use that as I am to old and sick to run or fight.

                I would have handed him my open carry gun...and then shot him with my backup CC gun when he tried to walk away
                Why do I carry? Somebody else will pick the day I need my gun, not me.

                  The guy is hanging out at 2:10 AM. No one sees that as a red flag?
                  I'm no fan of open carry but I'm really no fan of hanging out on the street at that time in the morning.

                        I a not a layer but, this looks like might help in the defense, if you felt it was worth it.
