Concealed CarryI have been in the profession of arms for most of my adult life. Whether in the armed forces of this country or as a law enforcement professional, my work has invovled weapons. I carry a gun for work.
Due to policy and good sense, I carry off-duty as well. I have both open carried and concealed my weapon while in civilian attire. Weapon retention is not my main concern here however, I don't care how big and bad you may be, if several suspects suprise and overwhelm you, they will get the gun they see. Hence, concealed carry may be the better option.
I carry during exercise as well, when the gun isn't getting in the way that is. One must be prepared at all times and you never know when a perp will strike. It is the nature of the world we live in.
