All I could do was shake my head at this epic fail.

The wife and I were in line at the store yesterday when I noticed the guy (30ish) in front of us had a loaded Ruger 380 in his waistband, just above the right rear pocket. His shirt was hiked up over it to gain access to his wallet and it was very evident that it wasn't in a holster of any kind. This is an LCP II mind you, the new one without a thumb safety, only a trigger lever safety. As he pulled out his wallet the little pistol slid up, clearly exposing the trigger, while teetering on his belt. Dumb, dumb, dumb! After he left, I told my wife that we'd be reading about this guy in the paper some day, accidentally shooting himself or someone else.

You should have very politely told the guy something...

ND just passed constitutional carry, no more permits. I'm going to be staying at the Red River Valley fairgrounds for the next week. Should be interesting.

I am all for a responsible carry however idiots like that just scare me. Absolutely care less and dangerous to everybody around them. Best case scenario they hurt themselves worst case they end up killing an innocent bystander.

One of my personal rules is to never bring up the subject of guns when in public, even to tell someone their pistol is coming out of their waistband. Besides, it would have been more safe if the pistol fell to the floor than to have him fiddle with it to tuck it back in.

There should be some standard for open or conceal carry other than "intelligent enough to buy something from a store."

Sometimes you can't cure stupid . . . you have to wait for it to sort itself out.

Yep, there was a round chambered, that's how I knew it was loaded. It slid up high enough to see the trigger and the sight hole at the front of the extractor.

The gun haters had exploding heads predicting shoot-outs in the streets and blood running in the gutters when Arizona passed constitutional carry.

Nothing different happened. N O T H I N G. The media had a big build up and had nothing to report.

Same thing when carry in restaurants and bars passed. No predicted wild west shoot outs. Nothing.

Go camping and don't worry about it.

Be vigilant for the ones like the subject of this thread, otherwise carry on.

Jeff, did you see this today? Probably not "left" enough to get much attention in the rest of the country.

Just got home from work, looks like it made channel 3 not sure about 5. Guns saving lives isn't what the media wants to report. May be a little better here in Az but their bias is still obvious.

I agree with you, not good business pointing out to a stranger he's carrying his pistol wrong. Wonder if those who recommend it have ever done it and the result?
