    Open carry pistol while metal detekting

    Any of you guys open carrey a pistol while metal detekting, Im looking at getting a p320 M17 for protection aginst black bears, 17 rounds 9mm should be enough rounds to scare him away and have enough rounds left over if he doesnt scare easily, Black bears around here are usally around 250lbs....

    I had been contemplating buying a Walther PDP Personal Defense Pistol for open carry and as described by them "is very discreet yet very intimidating" but decided it was probably a good way to get shot. The concept is good, but not sure it is street worthy!

    I open carry in the woods and leave it in the truck when asking for permission or hunting yards. The only trouble I’ve ever had doing so was at the gas station when some one has to give there unwanted opinion on the subject. I live in a back woods area tho and it’s not uncommon to see people open carry even at the bigger stores around. I also carry a 9mm m&p sheild or a rock island 45cal 1911

    I had a concealed carry permit for 5 years, but never/ever carried. I let it expire. It is a very serious thing to carry - knowing you are willing to kill another human being.

    I just could not do that as the thought of killing another person in this world is a very, very heavy thing. I couldn't do that any more. The permit lapsed. But I do know that anyone coming up this holler with bad intentions won't walk back down the road.

    I'm my state of New Germany. We are not allowed. Even some knives are illegal. Only thing I can carry is a small pocket knife and pepper spray lol. And wouldn't you know I have 2 concealed carry permits but still can't carry in new Germany.

    That is a good point, but if you want to open carry (even in the woods) cant have your shirt cover it at all and seems like you can get in trouble if the case covers to much as well, Im not to keen on the open carry laws. seems like for the woods going conceled will be easer...

    Rarely open carry, but have. Hard to notice though.
    Do carry concealed mostly.

    I was thinking about going bigger to a 357 round but I figured a 9mm would do the trick, if its spring and we jump a mother and cub she might not stop, Ill talk to my gun shop guy see what he recomends...

    My belt gets heavy enough with the pinpointer, digging tools and finds pouch. I don't think I would want to add the weight of a gun to that. The lighter the load the better.

    I have bin in a situation that I was confronted by an individual that didn’t like seeing the gun saying only cops should show there gun and I shouldn’t be showing it I calmly told her in this area it takes law inforcement about a half hour to get to this area and you may not have time to wait she agreed and left me alone most people don’t seem to notice especially during hunting and trapping season but I’m in a very rural area and usual dont detect in town. I also have a concealed carry permit

    I carry a Walther PPS and do it by the book. All of our firearms are registered and both my wife and I have carry permits. We both fire very frequently at our gun club and are trained, both in the military and by NRA instructors.
