Because I can for the same reason people driver different cars and trucks. The question should why not?Why?
Really? We now have the carry police. I thought that was the liberal's duty to challenge 2A.If you’re carrying it in the woods for protection, nothing wrong with it. If you’re carrying in public for protection, then you clearly don’t give a rats ass about anyone but yourself. So which is it?
Yes, you can ask it in a different way however, would you have the same question if; it was a 44-mag single six with 6" barrel or a desert eagle 50AE, a 460 S&W Magnum, a .480 Ruger, a Ruger 454 casual or a S&W .500 revolver with 4" barrel? In the original post I was also caring a Kimber micro 9mm in my pocket at all times. Does it really matter what anyone carries or why? I do not carry it very often but when I do, I typically carry to and from hunting, to and from target practice or sometimes it is just because I want to. For one it is a very intimating gun I know a guy who carries the same model in 45/70 for the same reasons. You should see it in a western rig with a 25-round belt.That sure is a lot of gun for CC. I have to ask the same question though in a different manner. Where did you go that you thought you would need that for personal protection?
You do not even know me, or my capability and have made assumptions that are just theorized based on preconceived notions without fact or basis. With the same thought process, you have provided than all so called assault weapons should be banned. NOT!No one is challenging the 2A. Just arrogant, irresponsible gun owners that have no regard for innocent bystanders. There is no load you are going to shoot through that gun that won’t blow clean through the attacker and any person who may be beyond the attacker. There is no excuse for that kind of recklessness. I have zero respect for people that do that dumb ** and zero problem calling it out when I see it. Don’t like it, don’t do dumb **.
He got that response because of his cocky attitude.
If you do not like the answer that is your issue, no one can make you mad you can only do that to yourself. As I do, all you have is opinions on what ifs or what could be or may be. Nothing concrete or provable by any means or by any real statistician evidence just opinions. You make assumptions and inuendoes without a fact basis and assume what I would or would not do. You need to take a chill pill before you blow a gasket.I don't need to know you or your capabilities, I know that cartridge like the back of my hand and what it is capable of, along with every other cartridge you listed off above. Irresponsibility is irresponsibility. I did not actually accuse you of anything. I just answered your question. If you don't believe that, go back and read my responses again. You asked a smartass question and got a response you deserved. I posted a 1 word question in response to your post, "Why?". There is no nicer way to ask that.
You are not the first person to come onto this board and boast about CCWing a 500 mag, you certainly won't be the last. If you had any "capabilities" whatsoever, you'd know better than to draw a gun like that in a public place. Having said that, I don't believe anyone carries a gun CCW that they would never pull. Not you or anyone else. Not even if its easily accessible while a less lethal option is tucked away in a hard to get to place, like your pocket. That tells me the easy to access is the primary weapon. The entire purpose of CCW is so that you have it if needed.
I asked, you answered. You asked, I answered. I didn't accuse you of anything. We can drop it here or make a big deal out of it, your call.
Not really, the shoulder rig makes it tolerable and well balanced to carry. Carrying western style is not too bad either.Betcha its weight makes it tiring to carry
Just because you can do something, does not mean that you should do it.
