Open weapon carry law in Missouri.

We are down to sis in laws in St. Louis. The strangest thing I have seen for a very long time is the number of people openly carrying guns on them in public places, grocery stores to restaurants. We were out on the town last night and saw a man with an AR 15 slung over his shoulder walking his dog. Just strange for us to see. It really frightened my wife to see this. It's the way it is. Off to a Riverboat Casino cruise. Should be fun, if I don't loose my shirt.

 

This is just an observation in the cultural differences we have from some US places, no need to become political in any way.

The day I need to carry a gun with me out in public in order to feel safe is the day I move. I don't quite get it to be honest. I'm sure some carry for their own protection and I'm sure some just do it because they wanna feel like billy badass. Enjoy the casino!

I'd carry a handgun in a moment if the law would allow it

 

But I have zero issues with people not agreeing with that

 

An AR 15 is kinda excessive though IMO

 

 

 

Think it was Col. Jeff Cooper that said " if you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck " an AR trumps a Glock any day.

Even in close quarters? Big, fat pistol round has lots of stopping power in close quarters and the pistol is a lot faster to get into firing position.

less than 10 feet pistol wins. Over 10ft rifle wins. I have a CC for pistol but rarely carry unless I am carrying valuables. In fact I am heading out back to shoot with a few friends at the range we have set up on the back of my property. Practice makes perfect.

There are a few others in the armory but I have a feeling it might not be in my best interests to post pictures of them. It is kind of obscene when we have the right group of friends over who really collect weapons. it is kind of neat when you get a call from a friend who asks you if you want to come over and shoot a Civil War cannon. The thing is all of them are nice normal people who just enjoy the competition of shooting same as some enjoy golf.

Well I lost 500 USD on the boat but my wife won 600 bucks. So I'm down 500 and she's going shopping tomorrow. Our sis is lobbying us to move there. No way, no how. They report shootings here on the news like we report the local weather. I'll just stay home in expensive, over taxed, no gun protection boring old Ontario. I actually can't wait until we get home to tell you the truth. And we could live very well on my meager Canadian dollar pension. A 4 bed 2 bath home with a pool in the burbs is around 250 CDN. I thought south Florida was bad at dark when we were had a place there 20 years ago.
