An observation, and a polite request.
My wife has Psoriasis, a non-communicable skin disease. There is a forum, at National Psoriasis Foundation. This forum has many members, and basically two camps. Those who believe in homeopathic medicine, and those who believe in biological medicine.

I've always viewed the idea of defensive carry, as encompassing all forms of legal carry. After all, whether we carry concealed, or openly, we are exercising our right to keep and bear arms. We should be on the same side. But I would be hard pressed to believe it sometimes.
I don't think any of us who are pro-OC would tell those who prefer to CC, that CC puts you at a "tactical disadvantage" in that it slows down your draw. Or that it makes you a potential target, since the BGs will think you're unarmed, and therefore more likely to attack you to rob/rape/murder, or do whatever.
So, how about we respond to the title of the threads, and stop interjecting our personal preferences for CC or OC, unless specifically asked?
Thank you for your thoughtful consideration.
