  1. Sure will be real quick to pull up my shirt to get at my gun instead of open carrying it in a REAL LIFE OR DEATH EMERGENCY. Guess we can agree to disagree on this subject. Maybe growing up I watched to many Westerns when all the good guys OPEN CARRIED. I know, maybe we should have "Concealed Carry Cowboy Action Shooting".
  2. I never said I could only open carry. I said I open carry in the hot Arizona summer months when I am working, and wearing a short sleeve shirt to try and keep cool, and leave work and stop at a store, I am not going to take my gun off and leave it in my vehicle. XYZ stores don't want customers to open carry, but it's all right to conceal carry. So people who are conceal carrying are not a danger to their customers, only people who are open carrying. Makes sense to me.
  3. I guess maybe it's just an Arizona thing to open carry. I have had employees from Gunsite, one of the best firearms training facilities in the country, come into the gun shop open carrying. Whether someone wants to or doesn't want to open carry, it's their choice. That's what makes America great, you can make your own choices.
  4. Ok Phantom, I will answer your question. I work part time at a Gun Shop in AZ and am required to wear a handgun while at work. During the winter time I am wearing a jacket, so I am concealed carrying. The summer temperatures are running in the high 90's daily so dressing for hot weather. Sometimes on my way home I will stop at one of the stores that are now asking their customers not to open carry, but it's ok to conceal carry. I will not leave my handgun in my vehicle while shopping. This doesn't really make much sense to the employees I have talked to about this new policy. Their opinion is they would rather know who "is" carrying a handgun than who is "possibly" carrying a handgun. In Arizona during the summer you will see many people open carry everywhere you go.

  6. So let's see Phantom, I decided I needed more shotgun shells and I "placed" my revolvers, shotgun, and rifle on the loading table in a safe manner. The shooter behind me is shooting in the same category I am, and we are at EOT, Winter Range or just a club match and I am so far "kicking his butt". So after I leave the table he "accidently" knocks one of my loaded guns off the table and I am supposed to get a MDQ? I normally don't disagree with you on calls, but this one is wrong.
  7. Tommy was a friend and quite a character. He loved a good joke and a good time. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Condolences to his wife and family.
  8. I've known Mickey and Maureen for over 22 years.  Met them when I started in CAS in Washington where they spent their summer months.  When I moved to AZ 14 years ago they were there to introduce me to the AZ shooters.  Two of the nicest folks you could ever meet.  We shot together many times and have many posse pictures of us together at big matches.  Mickey and I would communicate via E-mail with jokes all the time. After you have been in this game for many years all of a sudden you start losing the folks you "grew up with".  So sad.

    So sorry for your loss Maureen.  You two were inseparable.  Prayers up for you and family.
