    As a means of defense carry I totally agree with you, but I'm glad our state has always been an open carry state. Mainly because I frequently carry a handgun owb when hunting or fishing and if I forget it's on my hip and go inside a gas station or store I'm not in violation of anything.

    I did see groups of folks in neighborhoods during both hurricanes Katrina/Rita and Gustav/Ike open carry as a show of force against looters.

    I can see that. We can even CCW while bow hunting.

    Didn't remember this quote from Louis Awerbuck, but I came across it today. As relevant now as ever.

    “When it all comes down, the last man standing is going to be standing there in shorts and sneakers with a ’98 Mauser, and all the ninja-looking guys belly up at his feet – with all their cool gear.”

    Wisdom translation...Stop spending money on gear, spend it on learning how to use the gear you already have!
    Reminded me of this video, a classic for sure.

    I like videos that are skill reliant not gear reliant. Thank you for sharing that!

    I agree. Man, I HATE to go to the range and see what amounts to a tactical fashion show. Guys only carry a thigh rig or a chest rig when at the range. How is that training if you are only practicing with the things you're 100% sure you're not going to have on when the action jumps off?

    My last excursion to my home range I saw 4 guys (all civilians) wearing plate carriers, helmets with nvgs doing the tactical turtle. It was an interesting sight. Train like you fight bro!

    I almost get the plates/carrier after seeing folks getting muzzle flagged at my local public range. Probably more likely to get shot there than any “hood” around here.

    It's why I do all my training either in ripped t-shirt and naked below the waist or in a Hawaiian Shirt and boxer shorts....I KNOW that when SHTF thats how I will be dressed....

    There are a few divots in the ground near the firing line at our academy that have been deliberately left there as a reminder to recruits (and defectives trying to re-qualify)

    Edited to add: There used to be a sock in a frame mounted to the wall. With a hole in the forefoot part. Apparently it was too graphic a reminder for the gentle recruits.
