    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
    If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    That is damn funny Peter.

    This is the weather for which a drop leg holster comes in handy for us die hard open carriers. WInter coat and still open carrying.

    Not a bad idea, actually.

    Then again, I don't wear heavy coats, anyway. It never gets that cold around here...
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    Nope...It didn't get below 14 last night at the farm.
    I can't wear leg holsters with most of my guns. The muzzles would drag the ground.

    since I don't own the pic, rather than posting it here I'll just link to the owner's thread. Summary: be careful OCing in heavy snow if you have a gun that's carried cocked & locked...snow can build up and may inhibit functioning.
