Why should anyone feel the need to show everyone they have their gun with them?

So people who would normally try to prey on women or the elderly or those they believe to be weak they may think twice if they see a gun on that persons hip. Even if the other person has a gun no one wants to run the risk of getting shot

First of all, she isn't "showing everyone" she has a gun. She has it in an easily accessible but safe place, on her hip. Where would you have her put it? If it's left in her car, it defeats 50% of the reason to own a gun.
Also, uggers tend to go for the weaker people first, aka women and old people. By having a gun on her, it's MUCH less likely anyone's gonna try and rob her, and if they do she has defense.

Concealed still just seems smarter, say someone planned or robbing her, they could easily see the gun and try to take it without her even noticing, i agree with the point you're making though

Usually when one has a gun on them they are usually aware of others around them. Second in most states it is illegal to carry a concealed weapon unless you have a special permit. In my state however it isn't. Anyone can carry a concealed weapon. So a lot of people carry their guns on them. Especially if you’re going up into the mountains where there are bear, mountain lions, wolves, moose, and wolverine, and the nearest town or people is a 3 day walk or more. Oh this is Wyoming. Yes people it is a state.

With a police holster it's more secure, there's several things you have to press or pull to get the gun out of the holster, without knowing those steps, you can tug all you want and it won't budge.

I haven't seen a gun harness personally, but I'd assume there's a latch or something to keep the gun inside of it in case of that or kids

Usually yes, but even so, it's better to keep it hidden in case someone still tries to take it, and say you walk into an alley and get mugged, they shouldn't have to see your gun and you shouldn't have to threaten them, the only thing they should hear is the sound of your safety switching off

i'll have to take your word for it i've never been in an ally, or mugged, or near a gun. i always just assumed keeping it visible would be better to deter them in the first place. thanks for your input!

No problem, and even if you don't own a gun you should become familiar with them in case you are threatened, like for example if you are mugged and someone draws a gun on you, and they completely forgot to turn off the safety, your a little better off as an activiated safety won't allow someone to fire.

them damn uggers, attacking women and old people.

In my opinion it's to discourage people from robbing, mugging, whatever, in the first place.

That's counterproductive considering if she shows her gun, she would be the first target to neutralize in the store for the robbers.

Open carrying doesn't require a license, concealed carry does thats why.
#7 to #5 - anon (08/22/2013) [-]
Depends on the state. In my state, open carry doesn't require a license, but the moment you step into a car or on a bus, you're now concealed and need a license.
#4 to #3 - anon (08/22/2013) [-]
Open carry is not about showing off, at least not for the 99% that do. Concealed carry is also not for everyone who chooses to carry. Clearing your clothing and drawing from concealment is not as easy as it sounds, which is why police don't carry concealed.
A gun is just a tool and it's silly to assign magical powers to it.
