While searching Google for RAM Mount extensions, I came across this. Might make for an interesting conversation next time I get pulled over and I have my .45 attached to my handlebars for easy access. You know... for... um... deer...
I'd thoroughly research the laws of your state before mounting a weapon openly on your bike. Weapons and wheels make for easy felony violations in some states and circumstances. Cross a state line with a loaded weapon and you're looking at a federal violation.
I took a concealed carry course this past weekend and it was an eyeopener. The instructor was a retired cop and he knows his shit: Larry Mead.
Yeah, I passed. Everybody did, however about half the class had to stay on the range until they could finally hit the target. We shot at 3, 7, and 15 yards. Imagine not being able to hit an 8-1/2"x11" piece of paper at 3 yards firing 10 rounds.
In Missouri, it can be seen, as long as I don't brandish it.
Here in NC, you pretty much have to be holding somebody at gunpoint that didn't deserve it before you get charged with anything. In all reality, if I'm in a position where I need to draw while riding, I'm going to run first.
Of course. The thought of having to draw your pistol while riding is ridiculous.
The thought isn't, but the actual act may look like it. Just suppose you flip some jerk off after he almost runs you over because he's not paying attention and then road rage kicks in and he attempts to run you down for it? Alot of the vehicles out there these days can keep up pretty well with a 919 past 80mph or so.
ETA: Flipping the guy off may have not been the most mature thing I've ever done, but it happens. I was all willing to just let it go and be about my way, but he saw a need to make an issue of it. That damn Sequoia was fast and I didn't lose him until I hit some traffic and an off ramp.
Castle law would kick in if you were say, sitting at a redlight and some jackoff started approaching you with a bat because of something that happened on the road. Then it would be nice to be able to draw quickly. But while going down the highway, I only picture it making things much more dangerous trying to draw a pistol while riding evasively.

Used to be Red, now it's Green. Open for name suggestions.
