Use the Google machine to make yourself $10.

First verifiable and functional link posted wins. Remember to read the articles for specific details. A person with a CHL who is involved in a shooting doesn't automatically count. A person who got shot with their own gun may or may not count depending on the circumstances (must be open carry, not domestic or in their living room).

I want a story about a openly carried gun being ripped from its holster ($5 bonus) or a civilian being singled out by the bad guy. Google is your friend and good luck. Don't be discouraged if you are not first. I expect there will be hundreds of cases, so someone will post up almost immediately. I may extend the number of rewards, so post up as many cases as you can find (hundreds must be out there)!
My cousin is a police officer in New Mexico where they have constitutional open carry and I asked him if he has ever experienced a problem with someone openly carrying a pistol or if people grab your gun out of your holster. He said that it doesnt happen and has never investigated of heard of that happening...He did say that he is concerned about the concealed guns he cant see not the open carry....

True. BUT in the beginning it was borderline on illegal (could be arrested, go to jail, fight it in court). Then it became less borderline but you'd still have to prove you were putting forth effort for it not to be exposed. All that's out the window now!

Meh I've never seen case law on it so it must not have been a big deal.

I always thought the language was pretty clear on it and never really understood the reason for the wording change in 2013.

Not really.

Your can still be arrested under the same statute and made to fight it out in court.

Partially
You couldn't wear it OWB with an open jacket covering it. He was getting out of a chair and the jacket pulled open.
I saw this guy questioned and escorted outside. Not sure what happened after that.

Questioned and escorted outside by whom? Police?

The law was clear (to me at least) prior to the wording change in 2013 and after the 2013 change.

I'm just blown away by the people who are CHL and carry but don't know the law. It's YOUR responsibility to know it.

And BTW I've carried many times over the years OWB under a jacket or even loose shirt with no issues.

Yes I know. It's a peace of mind thing with me...previously the possibility existed (regardless of how small the possibility) that carrying my bulky .45 under fitted shirts could be misconstrued as intentional display if the shirt rode up by accident. Now the possibility is zero...hence my change in attitude towards carrying that particular weapon.

So, true story.... I just came back from the gun and knife show here in San Angelo. Huge billboard sign with the 30.07 law on it right as you walk in. Now, I'm all for open carry. Doesn't bother me a bit, but I see this older gentleman with a .45 in a cross draw holster right as I enter the coliseum. I politely went up to him and said "sir, just a heads up but there was a 30.07 sign back there. May want to pull your shirt over that rig. " He turns to me and says "it's a gun show.... Ain't no police here". Swear to god, not five minutes later I see a Texas highway patrol officer walking around. He literally is feet from this guy. Mr officer sees him, and politely asks him to walk outside with him. Don't know the outcome, but I heard him mention his displayed handgun.

I personally open carried twice today. Went in town from hunting with the wife to grab food. Ran in to all sups in Robert lee to get breakfast and lunch. Didn't take my gun off either time. No one said a word and my gun didn't jump out of my holster.

Well I've been thinking and that's usually not good. But maybe all of us should go open at times just so the general public sees there is nothing to fear, that there are more of us than they think and we appreciate our freedom being given back.

Pfffft that can't be true. According to some of the Nancies here the bad guys would
be shooting him first, trying to take his gun from him and the cops would pop him just because he was open carrying.

Took my youngest son Sunday morning to a Ryans restaurant in Conroe (by the infamous Conroe Walmart/Gang Headquarters) while we awaited Academy across the street to open.
Saw a 30.07 sign.
I was CC'ing.
I still turned around in the parking lot and spent my money else where.

Been out and about several places the last 4 days and have yet to see an open carry. Guess I'll just have to run up to the local gun store to see this phenomenon for myself. Hope I don't step in any blood with my new Christmas boots.

I carried my 1911 off duty concealed. I decided to carry my department gun off duty and concealed, so I bought an IWB holster that will hold the attached tlr1. I'm in the mindset to have that powerful light on hand as well.
