Daring? Please tell me your joking. That's no different than saying a woman wearing a short dress is daring a man to rape her! Put your Burka back on.


I was referencing the previous post that said open carrying was "daring" a criminal to come take your weapon. I was trying to point out that if OC'ing is "daring" someone to rob you, then is there really a difference in wearing expensive jewelry and the same thing happening?

Yet you are still walking around with a 10k watch on your wrist "daring" a criminal to take it.


Ha ha. My G-Shock is much better than any 10k Rolex.

People make themselves targets in a variety of ways. OC is not a deterrent to a motivated criminal or one that is looking for his next fix.. It can be as much of an enticement as your Rolex.

That was the point I was trying to make. Any valuable item might be seen as a target for a criminal. Realistically you have a better chance of getting your jewelry stolen than your pistol......oh and I rock a G-shock as well. Great watch when you are outdoors and having fun.
