Re: Annoying Trends.

There was a time I could not transfer myself to the toilet with out the grab bars or the additional room to maneuver my wheel chair. My bowels were such that I had no warning of the need to evacuate nor could I "hold it ". I don't know what is "legal", but I hope you never know the humiliation and embarrassment you feel when you evacuate in your jeans because some one decided they wanted a larger stall.

Re: Annoying Trends.

People who occupy the HC stall in a rest room when they do not require it. Folks who hold up traffic while waiting for a person to unload and return their cart in order to get a HC spot. Pansies who do not need a HC spot but use them just because they have a placard which should be invalid

If I were to sling an AR and carry it down the sidewalk, it would be in condition one. An empty chamber is a liability. Would I carry a long gun slung on my back down the street? Not for any reason I know of. But I am fully in support of the right to do so.
I agree about the wisdom of chambered carry, and also that a long gun in condition one is no different than a pistol in condition one. I've shot a rifle about ten times in the last 30 years, compared to a lot of fun sessions at ranges with pistols and I always carry a pistol where lawful.

In other words, I may have some gaps in my rifle-think. I have gaps in my pistol-think, too, just hopefully fewer of them.

If the long gun and the pistol in condition one aren't any different - and I think you're right, they're not - would it be safe to carry a pistol in condition one on a sling? I may be overly cautious, but to me an un-shrouded trigger is a case for an empty chamber. At least without the gun under positive control, with my grip controlling access to the trigger.

I did also once see a talented individual demonstrate "drawing" and firing an M1 at IPSC-speed. He started with the rifle over his left shoulder and could put a round on target at 50 in the time a competitive pistol shooter might do the same at 25. That took starting with a round in the chamber, but it still doesn't strike me as the street carry I'd like. Round in the chamber on the street, of course, but gun in the holster.
:iagree: A rifle ( especially a hunting rifle) is being carried in all types of conditions with the trigger guard exposed . I know of a case where brush depressing the trigger causeing a ND.
