100% agree. I cringe inside every time I see it. I imagine some lowlife taking it away from them and beating them with it. It makes you a target. And you also get the bonus opportunity to deal with every Karen and opinionated douchebag you run across.Great points, but unfortunately most I've seen OC'ing usually seem to either cheap out on holsters or buy one for its aesthetics. Not OC'ing would be a better option in that case. Most of the leading instructors in the industry don't have a fond outlook on it anyways as it has distinct disadvantages.
I carry concealed all the time, unless I am at a range, in a class, or wearing my plate carrier because of the end of the world. Haven’t had to do the last one yet.
