How old is he now Marco? Time is flying by and they grow so fast.

Grape, my son just turned 12yo this month, my oldest daughter turned 15yo over the summer and the two little girls are 5yo soon to be 6yo and 3 going on 25...

BOT:
FIL was in tow this weekend, (non gun owner from CA) he's always surprised there is no stink with regards to my OC'ing.

I have been to some "new" places while OCing in the last couple of weeks. Met some work associates after work at the Bonefish Grill on 29. It was so dark inside, I'm not sure anyone noticed until I was leaving; in fact, the guy next to me who looked down a couple of times told me he thought I had a Blackberry on my belt (Tritium sights). I also visited Wild Wing Cafe with a different set of work people.

Too many places to note as I OC daily.

I did notice two OC'ers this weekend;

The first gent was at a McDonald's he was riding his BMW (Bike) from VB (iirc to Salem) to place it on consignment. Iirc he stated he was originally from CA and was set to deply soon, he was carrying a Sig 320.
The second gent was entering Walmart with a attractive lady and he was carrying a toddler, he appeared to be carrying a SS 1911 in a Fobus holster
I got the chance to speak with the first gent but not the second, I didn't bring up OCDO.


Not sure either noticed that I was OC'ing, Kahr TP9 and NAA mini revolver

Me downsizing:shocker:
I banged up my right thumb the other day and it's still sore.....
The thin grip of the Kahr allows me to grip tight even without using my thumb as much as a wider gun/larger caliber would require.
The noisy Cricket is so I don't have to get my knife dirty.

I just gotta ask the guy who loves 10mm, "How do you OC an NAA mini-revolver? Keychain?"

For those who do not know, wearing a belt buckle (holster?) w/mini revolver in Virginia is considered CC - deceptive nature*.

* - can't find the cite now when I need it. :(

I've read that too,, but I think it applied to a gun and buckle that were adorned with turquoise stones
So it just looked like a pretty design.


BTW,, I made that post with a cell fone I got this morning, running off my wifi..
I made this edit on my computer.

A weapon shall be deemed to be hidden from common observation when it is observable but is of such deceptive appearance as to disguise the weapon’s true nature.

So, if it looks like a firearm, does not look like a real firearm, then it is a firearm that is hidden in plain sight...OK...so ya better have a permit for that in plain sight firearm that may or may not be a firearm-ish.
Yep - hiding in plain view.

If the NAA belt buckle gun is your BUG while you OC your primary, does it really matter? The code may not suggest it, but it seems to me the overt nature of OC necessarily cancels out any "intent" to deceive.

It matters considerably if one does not have a CHP. One is legal w/o a permit, the other is not. The deception is not with the OCd gun.

But you agree with me, seeing the hypocrisy.
No hypocrisy.

You own two vehicles, one w/o tags, both are parked on public street. You are a licensed driver. One vehicle is illegal.

Each vehicle or gun is judged on its own merits.


You have a prescribed drug in one pocket. You have a controlled substance in another pocket w/no Rx. You are under a doctor's care. One medication is illegal.

Each substance or gun is judged on its own merits.


.....judged on its own merits.

If the carrier in the same scenario I described (or even without the OC) was also wearing a shirt with an arrow pointing to the buckle with the words "YES IT'S A REAL GUN", would the gun still be judged on it's own merits?

Feel free to ask the judge in his/her official capacity while standing before the bar.

IMO, it is best to abide by the black letter law.
