First. Does anyone have any general insight into how the criminal element reacts to OC? In otherwords, is OC a deterrent in and of itself?
For example, if I am out walking and a criminal looking for trouble sees me OC. Is he more likely to go find another potential victim or am I giving him an advantage by letting him know I am armed? Is he more likely to just come up and shoot me because I have a gun, where he might only try to rob me if I was CCW?
Thanks again to all. Any tips for a new OCer welcomed.
It all depends on how ballsy the potential bad guy is.
All in all welcome to OCDO! Hopefuly the nevada folk can help you more than I can
