    For millenia, the open carry of a defensive assistant has been unquestionable. From slings and spears to swords and daggers, a man wasn't appropriately dressed without his weapon worn conspicuously. Secreting such was the mark of a criminal, coward, or assassin. How times have changed.

    If the victim would have had a snubnose revolver in his weak side pocket, he could have popped the BG while he tried to figure out his holster. Few BGs would consider a citizen carrying a backup. Of course, no CC at the time.

    The street value of a pistol must be pretty high, too. It's like walking around with a pair of c-notes on your hip.
    There WILL be patents with this (simple) discovery. That, and "type III levers". It's untapped wealth, waiting for you who Google. Or your kids. People expanding on the potential are welcome to elucidate; I didn't phrase it well

    More people get robbed for thier iPhones and Nike shoes than folks that target someone for a gun. Folks make their own choices. I know you did not say this but some folks always say "well,that is another gun in the hands of the BG's". Most BG's have no problems getting guns and the few guns stolen by BG's each year is negligible. Plus, how many thousands of hunters are out there every year hunting (OC'ing). Some of those rifles with optics are worth thousands of dollars. But nobody seems to claim that they put themselves at risk.

    It's different up north, here. BGs have a heck of a time getting guns. About 90% of seized guns are either non-functional or don't have any ammunition (because they cannot 'score' some). It's a bit amusing sometimes, though when you don't know a gun doesn't work, it's still pretty scary.

    Yeah, people get robbed for compact, valuable stuff. Shoes, iPods, wallets, and I guess OC pistols!

    Remember, though, the 'value' to the robber is nearly always the resale value. Expensive, but hard-to-pawn stuff isn't very valuable.

    Up North.

    Maybe in the Maritimes, Your info may be a little out-dated.

    I can tell you that's not the case in Toronto, you can ask a LEO that as well.

    I could walk you down the street, and you could buy multiple weapons restricted even in the states.

    Heck, I saw a thread about an 18 yo. OCin a m1 30. cal. Here 18 year old "cc" and hide p-90s, and m-4s.


    Toronto.

    Keep in mind this incident happened in a "borderline" neighborhood..........

    Putting yourself on the radar makes you a target.

    That is really getting old and redundant. It is a rare occurrence when an OC'er does have his weapon taken becasue he was targeted. And this was not a recent event. If you don't want to be put on the radar I suggest you don't buy a nice house in a nice neighborhood with a lot of nice things., don't by that iPhone, or drive a nice car. Or don't do a million other things that BG's target. In short, live by the BG rules and not your own.

    Between the borders of what? Hue-mans and your "kind" of specimens. This coded double-speak doesn't actually fool anyone and I have made it part of my mission to call it out where-ever I see it.

    I hope by doing so, I'm not offending anyone (I hope more than one :P ) and if the mods could clarify if I am break any rules or if this is fine. Any-one wanna join me?


    And I guess who-ever did it has some balls then huh? I take that as a compliment, I won't bait myself into saying any-thing more cuz it won't be nice. Thanks :)

    At least you got it jrclen Although I am sure many others understood it. Facts are facts whether one likes them or not.

    I like you plausible deniability (not sure if I spelled right, not a word I use a lot :/) smart :).
    @Crowman which facts are we speaking of? I'm not here to make enemies, but I don't make friends easily either. Good day, sir.

    I carry a .380 They are held in such low esteem on firearms forums that no self respecting bad guy would try to steal one. They would be laughed out of the gang if they went around bragging "Hey, I stole a dude's .380"
