I have now decided that since I am over 21 to get a CCW. I actually walked my application into the DPS office on my B-day. Like I said carrying open would not have been my preferred method.
Polarbear would you reccomend that I should have gone unarmed because the general public does not like the sight of open firearms? This would be the only way I could have avoided the problems. (FYI I was often in south Phoenix with no one else around and no vehicle). I sincerly hope not since you are a member of this site.
I do try to avoid problems and am an anti-violen person. The beginning of this senerio also started with someone trying to fight me with two of his friends. I did nothing but back away as he advanced on me.
I would also like to point out that I believe that when I was initially arrested that the officer did not have the specific charge in mind. Hence why I was cited for CCW later. I believe that there are many wonderful officers out there. I am in a long term relationship with one right now. I also hope to become one(must drive slower). But, if I was stopped many times and had no problems before, and this particular officer acted differently then all the others I believe the officer made a mistake. Was I tempting fate because eventually an officer could make a mistake?
I now carry concealed because it avoids these problems and I can now do so legally.
Again I would love to give any more information that I can because this was a huge learning experience for me. I hope replies keep coming. Be safe!
