Assuming the perp is dead and I felt safe putting my gun away, I can't imagine the police getting there before I had a chance to transfer my gun to my other hand, fish the holster out of my pocket, insert the gun into it, and put it back in my pocket.
I certainly can!
You've just done something about the guys who were about to rob you at gunpoint. They're on the floor, legs crossed, hands finger-laced atop their heads.
But you're not completely sure that they'll stay that way, if you take your attention away from them.
And now, the cops, who someone else called for, are arriving. You need to reholster before they see your pistol and think that you may be a bad guy.
But you mustn't take your attention away from the BGs on the floor.
I suggest that you do indeed need to be able to holster your pistol with only one hand, and without "looking it in."
And even if you think otherwise, I further suggest that it's a very useful skill to have, even if you never use it.
You can call me naive but, in that scenario, I'd more likely keep my gun aimed in the BGs general direction until the police arrived and assume they wouldn't just open fire on a 74 year old white guy without giving him the opportunity to drop the gun.
Why are you holding people at gunpoint?? Back away put distance between you and them. Your jacked up on adrenaline and your playing cop?? Look out that guy is making a run for it!!! BANG BANG!! oh boy you just shoot him twice in the back.
If you reholster before LE gets there, then one of the other 100 BGs you didn't see might shoot you, or LE might shoot you anyhow for not following the 25 different commands all yelled at you at the same time. So just like getting sued by the BG's family, plan on LE shooting first, asking question later.
See how piling on What-Ifs just gets sillier and sillier...
According to the ATF, a revolver is not a pistol.
Washington State issues a Concealed Pistol License, not a Concealed Weapons License.
Wondering if a Wa. State Concealed Pistol License holder carrying a concealed revolver would be breaking the law.
Saw a thread from a LONG time ago that suggests my VA Concealed Handgun Permit remains valid in states which honor the permit including NC. The permit states (Carry with government issued photo ID) not a VA ID.
My drivers license is now from NC. I'm close to the border of NC/VA. Now live in NC...
Someone suggested a poll in the the thread with the same topic. I’ve never set up a poll in a forum before so I thought I’d give it a try & did my best to list what most of us EDC. Thanks for participating :smile:
I am a 73 year old that has no inclination to “carry “.
I do, however, want to carry a loaded revolver in my truck.
Right now I carry the firearm in a zippered case and the ammo in a separate compartment. I think that complies with law.
Do you think it would even be worth the trouble to pay for...
