    Welcome to open carry. I have open carried in some of the Besbuy stores cannot remember if I had been in that one, been in many of the Wal-Martís and Samís Club open carrying for that manner I have open carried in every type of shopping and restaurant facility in Las Vegas that is not a school, airport or posted government building. Open carry in Las Vegas is for the most part a non-issue. Just stay up on the few limitations. Thanks to lots of research and donated time by the composer, the pamphlet that is posted on this Nevada forum is a great source of info.
    A suggestion, just do not carry looking like a thug, it is ones right however, not a grantee it may keep someone from calling in a person with a gun.

    I would have to say I dissagree with the statement "Just dont go looking like a thugg" what does a thug look like? Bernie madoff? Charlie Rangle? Casey Anthony? Or how about the Illinois governor Blago?

    The problem we are having is that cops are pulling people over for a "suspicious vehicle" My queation is, Officer what crime do you suspect this vehicle of commiting?

    If sagging pants will get me an encounter, then I am inclined to do it. Reason is it is every citizen has a duty to uphold the constitution. And if I get detained without RAS that a crime was commited then it is my duty to bring that officers unlawful misconduct out in the sunshine.

    The truth is I do not go out of my daily routine to "stick out" in view of officers, however at the same tim e I will not advocate someone altering their lifestyle, so that they train the cops NOT to use the probale cause required by the constitution.

    Stereotyping is wrong, but unfortunately will happen.

    I don't personally have anything against people who sag their pants, but for practical reasons I would think that wouldn't be a wise choice if self-defense is a priority.

    Unless if your gun is in a shoulder holster, I would think tight fitting pants would be advantageous so that your draw is unimpaired from the excess play, allowing you to draw the gun out faster when it is needed.

    Also, making a quick run away or a dive for cover might be impaired if you must hold your pants up to do these maneuvers.

    Of all the descriptive words I could come up with to make a very general point I though thug was a term I could not get in trouble with. I guess we all have the right to read into or choose to read past the context of a statement as we see fit.

    DTOM my suggestion said to you one should advocate altering their life style? Wow! I didn’t even know how to spell advocate. You can carry to train the cops. I will carry in a way I fell will lessen the chance of a confrontation. No life style change for me, however, showing the cops that not all persons carrying are a menace.

    I and no one else here can stop what most people react to, that is the first impression. Only the very well trained and conditioned has the ability to suppress their first impression well enough not to alter a correct action. This does not include many cops and most of the public.

    When most see a person with a gun on their hip they believe to be a thug, menacing person, low life, un-kept, gang member looking, a man in tights with a hoodie and a Lone Ranger mask, (trying to cover all who have special needs in understanding my general descriptive wording). Not even Knowledge of the constitution (that is if they know it), other people’s rights, safety, their own common sense will keep the majority from wrongly reacting to a first impression of a perceived threat. I carry hopefully to lessen that first impression concern. Not changing my life style, I still ride a Goldwing.

    Though I never said anything about sagging in my first posting nor did I imply or was I thinking of sagging when I said thug. With that said, I personally have a problem with sagging. Thanks for asking. I do not lose sleep over it however when I am walking with my grand niece and there is some low life walking in front of me and my niece with most of his underwear showing just barley covering his a$$ I conceder him as a disrespectful, selfish, bastard with absolute no concern for others. My apologies if it was any ones here son.
    Sure, hope it does not appear I was bothered by any of the postings.

    IF someone is in a "lifestyle" that involves looking like a "thug," I suggest that it might be time to actually change that lifestyle.

    Seriously. If a person's desire to "stand out" or to "be himself" goes to the level where they actually look like they are about to pop a cap in someone's ass, frankly, there are likely issues beyond simply "I want to be myself." Yes, that is MHO, and worth the paper it is printed on. As others indicate, if SD is the actual goal, dress for that actual goal. And, being able to carry and defend does involve a bit of attention to manner of dress. PART of SD is not being a victim.

    Standing out does not help. Well, not exactly.

    If you "blend" in with sheep, and look/act like one, that is how "thugs" will see you.

    If you stand out from the sheep, and look/act like a sheepdog, that is how "thugs" will see you.

    If you stand out from the sheep, and look/act like a wolf, that is how the sheep and sheepdogs, AND how LE will see you.


    It is the choice of each. If you want to be treated like a wolf, dress the part. Otherwise......

    I am of the opinion that when you are carrying a firearm, your appearance can and will effect how people perceive others who carry a firearm. I'm not telling you that you have to dress a certain way, but if you look like this;



    you are not welcome in the open carry club.

    I guess this might be ok, as long as when carrying and in the heat of a battle, he does not try to defend himself by grabbing the wrong pistol.

    While I would certainly be aware of which hand I was shaking, I would not let his looks, or his silly outfit scare me off. To judge this fellow is The same type of judgement we are up against.

    I can see the clown outfit forum now. lol where all they want to do is normalize their type of dress and lawful behavior according to the first amendment.

    Post by baller A " Just because some crimes are commited with guns er I mean by dudes saggin, does not mean that everyone who is carrying, oops I mean saggin is a criminal."

    Post by baller B "Yeah maby we need a slogan that says Outfits don't kill people, people kill people

    Post by baller A "cool lets make a list of 1-A friendly establishments"

    Post by baller B " yes and we could go walk down on the strip, carrying a recorder of course, you know you can get an encounter down there."

    Post by baller A " that's fo sho, especialy if you get an "anti" calling in a MWAS (man with a sagg) call.


    Ok a play right I am not, I simply want to make a point that this country is made up of individuals, and just as we want to be seen as the law abiding citizens in spite of our gun, I am certain that other groups feel the same way.

    I find it Ironic that we would, as a minority group, use the same tactics used against us, on another minority group.

    Heres a thought, we have a OC get together and Habib shows up in the "terrorist outfit" do we :

    Cancel the meeting?

    OC like nothing is unusual, making small talk like "does blackhawk mae a holster for that turbin?"

    Let him in the group, but always keep a ten mile radius away from the airport.

    Ok I am done, this was a good brain excercise fore me...... I cannot wait until the "strip walk" this weekend.

    The "thug" attire some of you are fixated with, which is more notably refered to as "urban" attire is a reflection of my friends, family, and me. Contrary to some misguided individuals belief's clothing is not a "lifestyle" Just because you throw on some Rocawear, that doesn't make you Jay Z. I'm from Oakland, California, where the grimiest move mean in the streets. I've lost numerous people close to me through gun violence, and guess what? the shooter was dressed just like the innocent victim. A thug will walk out of a night club in a three piece suit, with hard bottom shoes on, pop the trunk, pull a AK47, and shoot any, and everything moving. Does that make a 3 piece suit "thug" attire? Watch how you characterize, the thug might be standing right next to you, while you busy looking at the dude sagging his pants across the street.

    Funny part is I just left the night club a few hours ago here in Germany, and there was several individuals dressed exactly like the so-called "thug" in the photo above. I can assure you, none were "thugs" just admirer's of the hip-hop culture, and what they refer to here in Germany as "Black music"
    Clothing isn't a lifestyle. But, the clothing can look like a lifestyle. And, whether you like it or not, people will get judged by how that "look" looks to others.

    It is good to be aware of your surroundings, and "judgement calls" are an important part of that. But 1 girl in a short skirt, does not mean you are in hookersville. Good judgement, like anything else requires moderation.

I'm not out for blood, but if need be, I'll give a wolf the business! We all know about wolves in sheeps clothing don't we?

    Actually, if a person dresses to blend, that person WILL blend in, firearm or not. Why? Because that look that "fits" the world view can "block" the little things that do not. Selective seeing.

    And as for wolf, it isn't about skin color, height, or weight. It is about the classes of people wrt the predator/prey relationship.

    "Sheep" walk around in condition white, not really noticing what is happening around them, until it is happening to them.

    "Wolf" people seek sheep to fleece. Is that what you claim to be?
