    Interesting OC sighting in FL

    Let me start off by saying I work for brinks so this was a nervous situation for me... As you know in FL we don't have OC... I'm coming out of a stop today with $$ and I see this guy walking toward me. African American, wifebeater, those real long shorts and a revolver in his pants!!! I'm like oh bit Jere we go.... I hurry my ass to the truck and tell my driver and he says he saw it too...

    Considering nobody dares OC here cuz u can't and seeing this guy walk toward me was def the highlight of my day lol...

    Thought I share

    Only three choices...undercover cop with a bad outfit, a citizen with a CCW who cannot read, a thug...

    How did you see the recolver? Printing? Actual gun sticking out of his pants?

    If you saw the gun, I assume you called 911...they would have been there in 10 or 15 minutes.

    Doesn't sound like a good situation to me.

    A nerverous guard could have drawn on this oc carrier. If he was a cop you would think he would steer away from the armored car guard

    I would steer towards thug,or a CCW holder that doesn't understand the meaning of concealed,Even a plainclothes cop would be carrying in a holster IMHO

    It was not printing, it was just holstered in his pants with the handle sticking out... It was at a rest stop which is right next to the FHP station... Even if he was a cop, he'd know better to at least have his badge next to it. If I was a cop, I would have drawn my weapon and tell him to get on the floor... He was no cop... Perhaps a new ccw holder that had no clue what concealed means...

    Or a FFL selling firearms. Or maybe he was the owner, LOL?
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

    glad no agressive advance was made on the "thug/UCLEO's" part

    definitely odd, nonetheless.

    Let's clear this up.

    Was it inside his pants, in an -actual holster-, but showing in plain sight?

    OR

    Was he "mexican carrying" with the gun just tucked into his pants, with no actual holster?


    99.9%, if the guy was mexican carry, he was a street thug who was feeling brazen. No cop would carry in this manner, thats for the movies.

    Anyone ever try carrying like this? It's impractical. You run, it falls out. Get in a scuffle, it falls out. Stand up in an awkward way and it falls out.

    def no holster. at his 1-2 o'clock

    btw, did anyone find my post very hard to understand? I posted this on officer.com and there is a guy there that pretty much put me down as much as humanly possible about my grammar/punctuation. Granted its not perfect, but was it comprehensible?
