Alabama Open Carry Law Kicks In

Alabama’s new open carry gun law takes effect tomorrow (August 1 ). Yellow Hammer State gun owners with a concealed carry license can now carry openly in public places—unless they’re prohibited form doing so (indicated by an approved sign). Click here for wnt.com‘s FAQs. Bottom line: “It shall be a rebuttable presumption that the mere carrying of a visible pistol, holstered or secured, in a public place, in and of itself, is not a violation of this section.” The University of Alabama and other football-crazed, left-leaning seats of higher learning aren’t exactly happy about the public events provision, but that’s no surprise. Jefferson County Sheriff Mike Hale [above] tells al.com that he’s down with open. “I support the Second Amendment to the Constitution . . .” he assures the reporter. And no “but” statement follows. How ’bout that?

Here in Texas hill country, the thermostat seems to have a permanent love affair with triple digits. To avoid doing my Wicked Witch of the West death scream every time I leave air conditioned sanctuary I’ve had to rethink my clothing and carry method. Or not. My RKBA outside-the-waistband holster and Caracal C combo still beats the alternative (pocket carrying a Smith & Wesson 642). At least until I fix my Kahr Arms PM9 (it doesn’t like cycling Hornady Critical Defense) and test-schlep an inside-the-waistband solution. Or check out Adam’s advice to appendix carry a SIG P224. Right after I give up the idea of having more children. And lose ten pounds. I’m not the OFWG I use-ta be, but carry comfort is still as elusive as Texas arm candy. For me. But enough about me, how about you? How do you carry in the summer heat? Do you change guns/holsters?
