    Not everyone has the attitude to carry (concealed?). But, if someone does, they must ALWAYS carry. It's one way or the other. No in between. I've gone to many cop get-togethers and know 70/80 % of the other officers were carrying. It was expected. If I went to a non-cop party and checked my coat, I would ask the host for a safe place to put my sidearm and ammo (separate). Many would ask, is that loaded? Silly question. My son could hit a target at 25 yards with my .44 mag pistol at age four. Maybe not the black, but always busted paper. When he was old enough for school, his friend's would come over. If they knew I was a cop, they might ask to see my gun. He always answered, "No, it's not a toy". That was my boy! ╦╦

    In NY we are obligated to carry concealed. We also have a 10 round magazine limit. So I carry a M&P 9 Shield with MagGuts springs & followers to give me a relatively compact 10 rounds of 9mm and a DeSantis pocket sheath magazine carrier for an additional 10 rounds in my hip pocket.

    The Chief of Police at the City I worked for and the County Sheriff BOTH recommended I carry, so I went for my unrestricted carry permit. That Chief was the first man in the door at the American Civic Association shooting in 2009.

    I have been pulled over for speeding and, in the course of discussion I mentioned I was carrying with a permit (with both hands on the wheel) and the officer handed back my license and registration and said "Have a nice evening". Did not even ask to see my permit.

    But then I have an honest face. ;-)

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    I carry a Taurus PT709 slim and a permit. It's almost identical in design to a single stack glock except it has a real safety in addition to trigger "safety".

    One thing to remember while detecting though: Trespassing while detecting (accidentally) is a minor offense. Trespassing with a WEAPON can be a big deal. Be VERY careful where you detect while carrying. If in doubt, leave it in the car and carry fighting knife with a blade of 4" or less so it is considered only a pocket knife. I carry my pocket knife in case I am "entangled" in fishing line, string, etc.

    I never carry if I am land hunting on a property which is questionable. Parks, sure, beach sometimes (Friday and Sat night only). Empty lots in the city, no.

    Not true, at least here in Sunny Florida. Our great officers have no problem with good people who carry.

    The police are not happy when they observe people with guns in parks and beaches. Not a good idea.

    I think the "good" police from old school training prefer the assistance of concerned citizens in extreme circumstances. If lives are at risk and there is NO TIME to wait for the police ONE trained citizen with a legal weapon can end a very bad situation from becoming another bloodbath massacre. Just makes common sense to me. I don't think any sane human could think otherwise. Do today's police force prefer we always wait on them as the body counts rise? Sometimes I think I am in the Twilight Zone with today's version of "logic & reason". I for one choose with extreme intent NOT to become a victim.

    I reckon should the lone wacko with multiple weapons and 100's of rounds go off in another public place randomly murdering folks the police might have another opinion should ONE concerned citizen with a legal weapon put that asshat in their grave.

    Police Departments have two views, the official and the troops'. While on the job, 98 % of the officers will only give you the official view. Once you get to know them, you will get the "other" view. You figure it out. ╦╦

    Are you a badge, Charlie? In Milwaukee, we were required to carry off duty until 1976. Our contract that year made it optional. I continued to carry concealed because it became as natural as putting my pants on to leave the house. It is also the same year females were walking the beat. A certain female cop (name not needed) was assigned to protect a female citizen from a fellow who said he was coming over to rape her. He let himself in with his own key (size 12 wide). J shot him in the stomach before words were exchanged. (good for her) He was unarmed. If one of us guys did that, we would be in prison. ╦╦

    Don't be too sure of that, Kurios. The concerned citizen, in a public place, will most probably only have a handgun. NO MATCH for a bad guy with a rifle and lots of ammo. Citizen will most likely die. Or, may kill or injure someone in the backround. The citizen goes to jail too. IF CLOSE ENOUGH and unable to make space between himself and the bad guys, citizen may shoot. More than likely the citizen is not proficient enough to take a shot at more than ten yards. Most will still have many of the rounds that he bought with the gun, having little or no range time at all! MUCH must be considered when taking a human life. If he kills the bad guy, he's a hero. If not, he probably won't be remembered past his own funeral. These are things the cops are thinking about. Please don't take it personal. I am not directing this at you. I'm just spouting. ╦╦
