    In the Florida, Texas and other forums, I've posted a thread about flap-holster carry. To this end, I ordered a Walther P38 flap holster which arrived, today.

    As I was fitting it to the duty belt, the missus begins to panic, strenuously exhorting me not to wear the rig in public. When queried for her rationale, she flatly told me that the cops would use it as a means to "put a bullet in my back."

    The missus is no wise political, just an average sort of American whose concerns are far from cops and guns, yet she firmly believes that the cops will view the holster as "baiting" and will fabricate a reason to kill me.

    If this is what an average sort of person knows, and we all know she's fairly close to the truth, the country is lost.

    I have family that work for the PD as civilians. I OC regularly. She's worried about me getting hassled and possibly arrested, but not shot. Maybe you should think about moving.

She knows there's always someone of questionable character around every other corner, and down every other street, even in little ole ParkHills, Mo. If it's after dark, or gonna be dark before she returns home She's already ahead of me.

    Get a divorce.

    Do not let her stop you from defending your life.

    She wants you to give up your second amendment rights.

    Why doesn't she like OC?

    What are her reasons?

    Ahem, as I said, she's indifferent to OC. It's the cops that scare her. She knows that cops hate guns and like to kill people. She also knows that cops really hate anyone (me) who stands his ground.

    She also knows that Florida cops are outright liars.

    My wife of 29 years is clearly "anti-gun", and I am obviously "pro-gun". We coexist well, as when she tries to limit or complain or criticize I simply say: Dear is it your intention to deprive me of my 2nd Admendment rights as defined by the US Constitution? I always win on that one. You may want to use it- I don't have a copy right on it.
    I would say something more like "Dear is it your intention to deprive me of my God given right and obligation to protect your life and mine?"

    B.S... I wore that holster (w/P-38) all over the place 'til i sold the whole thing. I also use a M1916 holster and a Bianchi UM-84 for my 1911 pistol. My wife uses a black E. German holster of similar design for my Makorov... which she's 'adopted'. Where do people get these silly notions?

    I haven't seen the FL/TX posts, but I am assuming from one of yourposts above, you are in FL? Meaning that a flap holster is considered CC there? Yet it is also OC, but if FL law considers it concealed, it is your way of "OC"ing?

    Hmm, maybe get yourself a level 3A vest to go with it? Unless the cops are using their "patrol rifles"...

    McX- don't worry about the big OC event and the guy in Madison. Madison sounds like what Philly is to PA- bunch of anti freaks- BUT they are still part of the state and state law overrides. And I'd say the OCer in question may end up being a big friend for WI OC- make sure you all have his back. He will win and as a result you all win. You all just go and attend your big OC event and don't worry. Sounds like most of your state is OC friendly- I mean with the 70 something people showing up OC for the walk in Manitowac! ( ok I hope you are refering to WI, otherwise my response will sound stupid!)

    I carry my Glock 27 in a paddle holster, my Tarus pt92 in my back pocket and my Intratec 9MM w/32 round clip in a shoulder sling. But...I have a ccw. I've never cared for flap holsters. What would ones reason be for having one? Can you produce your fire arm as quickly from one?

    WOW...

    Paranoid much? How about just carrying ONE .45 ACP pistol and you won't need all those little 9mm bullets... :what:

    I carry an H&K USP 45 (with 12-rnd mag) and one spare mag. I can't imagine needing more than 24 rounds unless the Zombies are at the front door.When thatt happens,I havean AK with three 30-rnd mags in arm's reach from my "Daddy Chair".

    Semper Paratus!

    It can't be OC and CC at the same time.

    I will never defend Ohio in their laws since most are complete ******** since anything that regulates something I dont need permission to do is bs.That said in Ohio I reads in the ORC under weapons definitions of simply put,If it looks like a guin it is a gun. So LEOs can bust you all you want for carrying your gun in a flap holster but there is a reason the military used those for the longest time.
