These couple of pics have been doing the travels around Facebook.
The usual snobbery was to be had: “ZOMG he is Open Carrying a Hi Point! How Crass!” and “By Hercules’ soul! He has a nylon holster! That is so gauche!”
As for the Hi Point, I don’t care much. The idea is to have a Pew Dispenser and if you can only afford that, I am not gonna complain about it. I am not crazy about the holster, but as long as it is not a paddle and it has some sort of retention device like this one does, you are somewhat OK. So, he is better than the Tactical Fudd that has a worked out SIG in an custom-made alligator paddle holster without anything to secure the gun.
However, the frigging concealed carry badge has to go. You do not need to give a prosecutor any excuse to screw with you in case you actually need to use your firearm in Self-Defense.
“So Mr. Jones has a badge that although it does not show he is a LEO, people may think he is one. Maybe Mr. Jones secretly thinks himself as a police officer? Maybe his fantasy led him to behave recklessly and put himself in a situation where he eventually killed the victim.”
Don’t give the enemy the nails to seal your casket.
