    Here is a thread all about OC of long arms.

    I am thinking about getting a shotgun to OC, just for the hell of it.

    Also, I am up for a courthouse demo with long arms. Anyone have a nice "black rifle" I could borrow?

    If we could all move the long arm OC discussion here, that would be great...

    i support long arm OC,and would do it gladly(maybe my 18th birthday party can be thrown by MOC this summer even?)

    but again....i feel there is a time anda place for long arm carry,and a time and a place for handgun carry....if we move too far too fast we'll end back up at square 1

    i can't help but think that if the "long gun" kimberguy was carrying would have been a revolutionary war flintlock this all could have been avoided but then thought....

    from what i have gathered from on here that kimberguy as i couldn't bear the reloading time of those "staples of our existence"

    it just would have been
    "really!?! how many flintlocks does one guy need to carry" vs. OC of a AR

    open carry is just that open carry.


    we are all in the same boat going to the same place for the same reason. so what if his ore is longer.

    i can see the view of it being counter productive if this is strictly a pistol OC cause but i would wager to guess that is what the pioneer OC pistol carriers got/get from anti gun and strictly CPL people.

    Yes. The underground traversing creatures in the movie remind of some people I know.

    OC a long gun HUMM,

    ** i would suggest that we stick to what you would carry on a daily, day to day wear, and not go over the top.

    If it is not something that you wouldwhere while atdinner, at the movies, mowing your yard, etc....

    I have a Mossy, black synthetic, with an 18 inch barrel, and a scope.
    OR
    My NEF single shot 12g with rifled barrel, and handmade brazilian cherry stock.

    Hmm,

    I like the NEF. It has old school cool factor. Plus, I'm proud of the stock. I might have to sling that one...

    Why other then the proving to yourself the 2nd amendment is alive and well would any body have a real reason to open carry a long gun. How is this tactical? Please explain this too me. I have seen several pics of people ocing long guns and in most pics another person can access the firearm faster then the person carrying the thing. Seriously This OC.INC is starting to look like the damn purple gang or some ****.

    I've openly carried a long gun for years. Since around 12, I'd guess. That would make 23 years. Of course, I'm usually wearing cammies and an orange hat when I do, but what's the diff?

    Just trying to lighten up the conversation a little. I'm sorry I have a sense of humor. I'll go hide in my hole now. TTYL

    This idea of a few people is not seeming like a useful exercise.

    I'd like to see a response. Why would someone be shot for OC'ing anything? Has anyone ever been shot OC'ing? Not that I've ever heard about ever! So are you trying to say someone will be murdered for OC'ing? I have a feeling that's highly unlikely. You're free to your opinions but you know what you're free to be a PC as you want but your PC will not encroach my right to bear arms either Open Carry or Concealed. It's a free country you want to go to a place where people kill you if you disagree with them go to Iran!

    The police told me the same thing about walking down the street with my gun in a holster when they stopped me and violated my constitutional rights,thereby bringing a federal lawsuit upon themselves!

    Shot for Oc'ing? How the hell did you come up with that? But guess what, With all the flak going around about this now there are members of the general public that nowKNOW that OC be it a handgun or long gun is legal. Was the public ready for the AR issue? maybe not, but it was K-guys decision and I'll back him up on it. Will it hurt thr OC issue? maybe or maybe not, only time will tell.
