I tend to agree with Uncle and Tam on the story about a Wisconsin open carrier who had his gun robbed from him. He lives in Wisconsin. It’s open carry or no carry there. This incident is part of the reason we need a concealed carry law in the Badger State.
At first I thought it was pretty ballsy to try to pull something like this, but if you think about it, it’s not really. All you have to do is get the drop on him. Feel confident enough to draw on a guy pointing a gun at your head? I don’t either. The great trick is not getting into a situation you get a gun pointed at your head. Everyone will make mistakes though, and if you’re targeted for robbery, and the robber is talented, you’re probably going to be screwed.
I wouldn’t be surprised, honestly, if the robber saw it as a challenge. Now he’s the criminals in the neighborhood who robbed the guy with the gun, of his gun. I’m sure that has to get you some street creds.
