    Some time in March there will be an Empty Holster Day. All are asked to carry empty holsters in the open. CC will be optional.As soon as I hear the exact date I will post it here. This is not my idea, it comes from a different organization.

    Why not do it everyday?
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    I have been wearing a holster since acquiring my SERPA. Unfortunately it is empty while driving and in Town due to the vagaries of Wisconsin law.

    Apropos, I would like a source for drill pieces, preferably in hot pink to appeal to the pointless one, fashioned and weighted to fit and wear properly in a SERPA.

    I don't get it! Why would I carry an empty holster when I can OC with my gun inserted in holster, at least in my state. I can see in a state where OC is not legal as a great protest.The term national empty holster day doesn’t apply to all andthink a name thatentices all gun owners to OC or carry an empty holster due to law restrictionsor allowance would grab more attention and participation.

    Ain't it great that Virginia doesn't get in the way of our basic rights.. as in OC'ing?

    Question. Living in Arlington, which I did for 24 years, have you ever had a run in with a citizen or an LEO there?

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    I'm in Arlington Washington, not Arlington VA. But never have any issue with LOE or ciitizens, I think I was followed home once by local PD after OC at a pizza joint.

    I did some quick Googling and found two forums (Maryland and Pennsylvania firearm forums, respectively) that are discussing this "empty holster day"...it's an interesting idea (obviously more-so for those who don't already CC, UOC, or OC).

    Theoretically I can UOC in California, but as a full-time Grad' student who is also employed on a college campus, I'm a little restricted. An open holster would be a pointed statement; but ultimately more effective if I'm not the only one on a California campus!

    March will be upon us soon, but if the word does get out and there is at least some nation-wide organization of this idea, it could speak volumes - if done smartly (we would need to be ready to discuss, with reason and facts, why "we" are making such a statement).

    The reaction from our New Management would be interesting.
