Sigh... 'Not encouraging' and 'discouraging' are plainly different things, and 'not promoting' is decidedly different still from both of those.

Let the site's official position be whatever Mr. Pierce et al desire, but when they pick and state their position, let's not loosely substitute swaths of it with near-misses.

I've OCed with individuals who have holsters that don't cover the trigger guard of their pistol. I'm curious if OCDO would 'not promote' using such a holster as adamantly as they 'don't promote' LGOC. I'm not looking for an answer - just food for thought.
IMO not promoting is not promoting, it does not give latitude to bring up one sided attacks. If we are not promoting then taping the mouths of those on her who do support or LGOC for ONE or TWO members to take liberties with other peoples liberties. Bashing others forms of carry is not supporting the RKBA. I think the rules should be clarified as to know if one sided attacks are going to be accepted.

There is no 'Mike Pierce.' The OP of this thread is Mike Stollenwerk. John Pierce (OCDO Administrator) has not posted on this thread.
Thank you for the correction. I read Mike's OP which contained the quote from John Pierce, and conflated the two names. My apologies. I've edited my post to reflect the correct names.

That is true.

It is as true for concealed/discrete carry as it is for long gun carry.

I haven't seen anyone bashing on long gun carry.

I routinely see a few members who bash on concealed/discrete carry or on those persons who choose to carry discretely. Would that such anti-CC bashers would heed your counsel.
