Everyone knows the 9th Circuit Court is very crazy and very liberal-
And one of their recent rulings was 7-4 that people have no right to open carry.
The case was about a man in Hawaii who was trying to get a gun permit.
He applied for a permit to either carry openly or to carry concealed.
Not surprisingly, Hawaii denied his application, saying he didn’t have an “urgent need” to carry a gun.
It blows my mind that states can still get away with requiring citizens to show proof of an “urgent need.”
Now, this guy is walking around without a gun, and if he doesn’t move out of Hawaii, he’ll be gun-less unless the Supreme Court takes up this case.
The truth is, I am not a huge fan of open carry. But I believe everyone should have the right to do it.
I prefer concealed carry because I don’t want to draw attention to myself, and I like the element of surprise.
But, where I live in Utah, it’s not unusual to see a guy strolling through the grocery store with 1911 strapped to his hip.
And then there’s my neighbor who always walks his kids to the bus stop strapped. (Our kids have been in school in person the entire year – thank goodness.)
Whether you choose to open or concealed carry, you may wish to get a good holster made of leather or Kydex.
Good leather makers include Galco and Milt Sparks.
Good Kydex makers include Blade-Tech and Bravo Concealment.
As I said I believe it’s a person’s right to choose how they carry their gun.
Most of the time, you’ll find me with my Sig Sauer P365 in my pocket.
If I’m going up the mountain; you’ll find my Springfield 1911 with my P365 in my pocket.
Both loaded with Speer Gold Dot ammo.
As I mentioned earlier this week, both will have a round in the chamber and ready to go.
