Can anyone point me to where an open carry was shot by the bad guy doing bad. My searches come up with people shot but not for open carry. Looking for dates 2000 or later. Open carry is bad is more a magazine writer thing to sell their magazine. It's like the bit about the .32 ACP not being a good round. Dad liked it much better in a Colt 1903 than a 1911A1 in .45 ACP in Germany in 1945-47. He carried a 1903 till he died.
