This is a discussion on had a run-in with a irresponsible cc permit holder the other night within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; New York, go figure. Concealed weapons aren't allowed in bars in FL, CWP or not....
New York, go figure. Concealed weapons aren't allowed in bars in FL, CWP or not.
Helpful hints on pushing back and strengthening the 2A:
God and NRA save us from them and the Brady Bunch! Headlines, two-minute-TV-news stories, and lawsuits to follow! Blaming the bar owners, bartenders and bouncers, if any.
I've been thinking about this one since my last response and Still think i would have done it. While it turned out he was a permit holder and it was a dropping accident ( a long time ago I had a cheap holster let my gun slip, not drop, but slip far enough down my waistband to worry me, so it can happen)
But a stranger dropping the weapon and walking away like nothing happened would still make me think bad situation. I would be thinking did it drop or did he do the old Pant Leg Shake to get rid of it?
I'm paranoid I guess.
Welcome - im in Roc too...
I think i would have done about the same thing...depending on which bar you were at....
I probably wouldnt have yelled, but dont think that was a big deal...
I probably would have unloaded it so that when he unsafely grabbed it back from me (like you described), he didnt ND into me or my buddy.
How about unloading it and handing him the gun then a handfull of ammo?
Either you are a weapon and your gun is a tool or your gun is a weapon and you are the tool.
I also have a few cheaper looser holsters, but retention devices are nice for a little higher price. Yes, I think that I probably will not be falling or stumbling or running or rolling, instead of slowly and peacefully strolling.

as soon as you pay to have training to be allowed to read the newspaper or to go to church ill disagree with you..... charging to exercise a right already isnt legal.....
no state shall convert a right into a privilege, license it, and charge a fee therefor.

if the state converts a right into a privilege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right with impunity.
