Everyone has seen them, the person carrying that you just shake your head and say WTF?

 

Beside lack of training, what are the biggest mistakes you've seen?

 

I'll go first. Tuckers Onion Burgers OKC, a dude walks in wearing camo fatigues tucked in his combat boots, open carrying a Glock 26/27 in a Serpa holster and a full size Glock magazine sticking out of it.  There are at least 3 right there in one scenario. The only thing right was that he was at Tuckers


I once had an awkward moment, just to see how it felt.

A friend of mine that's a cop in a large city in CA had a guy in his department get in an altercation with a guy who was appendix carrying. The guy tried to draw his gun. so the cop hit him with his taser. He had his booger hook on the boom switch and when the juice hit him he squeezed off a round into his dick, balls and femoral artery.

I don't know, but I think the moral of that story was don't get in a fight with a cop.  Especially one who has a taser.

I was at an auction awhile back. There was a guy OC'ing a highpoint. He had on a blue chambray shirt untucked, but had the tail of the shirt tucked behind the gun so it stood out vs letting it hang and cover. Nothing against OC, it was just odd the way he carried it.

Open carry with one of those shitty, plastic, yaqui-style holsters that leave 80% of the gun exposed. Like the free ones that Springfield sells with every gun, but worse.

I've seen several people "conceal carrying" with a fobus/shit holster that has a t-shirt lazily draped over it.
You can clearly see a brick sticking out of their side and the muzzle sticking out past the shirt.

At least Walker didn't have his cross-draw rig on for that pic, now that is silly.

 

I saw a guy at a fast food place lose his pistol from his crappy small of the back holster when the back of the chair grabbed it.  Fortunately the place the nearly empty and I was the only one that saw.  He wore the look of shame and quickly finished up and left.

You mean one of these?

A new one from today but I have seen it before. A paddle holster tucked in the belt NOT inside the pants like its supposed to be. #FAIL
