    Or perhaps it's a

    1. matter of convenience in the heat to not sweat all over the leather/exposed sections of gun/grip
    2. because no one gives a crap or panics calling leo's thus making it a non issue including leo's who see open carry on bike regularly and know the law.

    In the Northeast, we have a lotta sheeple driving through the area, and they certainly freak out with those who exhibit their Legal Right to OC. I will never damn anybody who wishes to OC ... I have done so, but choose to CC...Just too many Lun-a-tics in my area lookin for a reason to break my cookies..LOL

    sure buddy, it may be any number of perfectly plausible explanations but that fact doesn't really negate anything that I have said. At least as far as I can tell.

    In my opinion, you pretty much can't improve on a "holster on belt" carry for most times. Not to say I don't pocket carry also, but it's in a holster in my pocket. I do own two shoulder rig's. But they are't cheap, & I rarely use either.
    My vest is modified to hold the pistol at nearly horizontal position, somewhat muzzle down. Quick access.

    Holster on a belt is out of the question for me, as I can't carry more than a few hours (maybe 3) before needing a chiro. I just bought a cheap belly band to test it, the $15 WallyWorld special. If that works out reasonably well, then I'll probably invest in the 3Speed.

    I ride. I live in the DFW Tx area and I open carry while riding.

    My reasoning:
    Getting cut off from DFW on ramps from the right is far reduced with a visible sidearm. I get cut off most in a car, a little less riding and significantly less openly armed. Some folks will push past a car, fewer past a bike and lots fewer past an armed biker.

    I just sold the CZ 99021 I carried since it was black and not so visible. Iím currently acquiring a CZ-82 as that model is specifically designed for use with heavy gloves. Itís nickel coated as well, to be more visible. Might as well wear a model I can actually use should it come to it. I ride gloved.

    I move to concealed when not riding. The bike has lockable hard bags for this reason. Iíll already have a concealed on or one available in the bags.

    I only open carry while riding, fishing or hunting.

    While I canít offer input on open carry. I did want to say good on you for wearing gloves. Iíve almost lost two fingers with gloves on during a motorcycle accident. Definitely would have lost them if I had not worn gloves. I feel a lot of riders underestimate the need for gloves. Good on you

    I play violin and viola. Risk is fine, but itís smart to take precautions.

    At 54, I just started learning the violin, and I think about protecting my hands now more than ever, although after 7 months I still have terrible bowing

    No, it doesn't negate it [ nor was it meant to ], it counters your negative connotations with some positives. No more or less.

    Off topic but itís my thread.

    Bring a violinist for 40 years sure makes me not give one crap about a heavy trigger. Road rash is another story. This is what prompted me to ask about gun choice in particular. CZ-82 and 83 are designed for heavy gloves

    Now I understand more of the choice.

    So so let me ask you this; how long will it take before my bowing gets what would be considered ....pretty good?

    Letís see, the 1st 3 years of concerts in middle school sounded like torture sessions for herds of cats. The 4th year. Mind you this is training 1 hour a day school days and lazy summers. By the 4th year we could compete in UIL. My mother loves to tell stories about me following her around the house playing the intro to Fiddler on the Roof around that time frame. Solo training.... 2nd year maybe for bowing. Speed on the left hand is harder to learn than bowing.

    Here in AL, a motorcycle is considered a vehicle, and one must possess a permit to carry in/on a vehicle. Same applies to boats. Dumb, I know.

    Texas is different in that you donít need a permit to carry in a vehicle. Iíd suggest it on a motorcycle though.
