I very seriously doubt that I have any issue carrying my guns however I want. My state has open carry and concealed as options. I have my concealed permit and I am very much of the opinion that if you have a gun, there is no need to show it off. That only makes people envious or scared and neither of those situations will end up good for you. The envious person will likely call some buddies to come help him jump you and take your gun from you. Remember even with a gun, it's hard to take out six grown men that surprised you. And the scared person is gonna call the police. Not sure about your laws, but North Carolina has a law called "armed to the terror of the public". It pretty much says that if you are armed and someone thinks you mean them or someone else harm (even if you don't) then you will be at the very least asked to remove said firearm either from sight or from your person.
The Blackhawk SERPA series is a good holster with retention levels I,II and III. I prefer the level II, but the III is what cops usually use. These are also not fool proof in preventing someone from snatching your gun. You can hunt around on YouTube and you will find videos of some guys pulling a SERPA clean off of the base by simply grabbing the pistol in it, and torquing it towards the rear of the person. It ripped clean off and the badguy then had the gun. Just something to look out for when looking at holsters.
Like I said, scared. I BEG you to please show me where these "6 man attacks" are taking place. Untold thousands of law abiding citizens are enjoying their god given LEGAL RIGHTS to open carry all over the country and doing it every day without incident. You are more than welcome to make up these scary senarios in your mind and pander to the liberals if you want. I will exercise my RIGHTS before they are taken away. I dont think the way liberals think so I dont understand your way of thinking. P.S. Open carry has NOTHING to do with showing off your gun. Nothing at all. If thats what you think, your clueless.
I own a bunch of scary guns. You want em? Come and take em.....
Liberalism is a serious, non curable, mental disorder...
