Because we all know its acceptable to face shoot someone...but not to face PUNCH them... I got told at one point I couldn't have a fixed blade knife on my gun belt at work because it was basically too 'scary' I asked if the gun didn't sort of trump any knife i may carry...short of a crocodile Dundee bowie of course.
I got slapped on the peepee for having a triple open top mag carrier because it's "too aggressive". Closed top is ok, and a double in front and a double in the rear is ok, or extras in pockets, but having 3 exposed mags next to each other is just over the top militaristic. Lol. Isn't pointing a gun at someone aggressive?
