HA HA HAAAAA! Stupid criminals always make me laugh!

I find it amusing that the guy who shot himself while peeing is named "Johnson".

Mexican carry? Where did this come from? Calguns needs to quit the anti-mexican hate speech. Tone it down please.

Mexican Carry: To carry a pistol inside the waistband with no holster.

"Mexican Carry" is a method of carry where you stuff the gun into your waistband, without the use of a holster.

If you go back to the roots of this term, you find that there is no racism, nor anything else pejorative in "Mexican Carry." The lore of the gun tells us that back in the 19th Century, the Mexican vaquero, much like the American cowboy, was an independent and self-reliant sort who often made it a point to carry a handgun. Alas, the history of 19th century Mexico was entailed one despot rising after another. The day came when the average citizen was stripped of his former right to go armed when he wished.

This did not sit well with the fiercely freedom-loving caballeros. They grudgingly took off their gun belts and holsters, because possession of those accoutrements would be seen as evidence that they had violated the draconian new laws that disarmed them. However, they defiantly kept their handguns, simply stuffing them into the waistband behind their ordinary belt. If the Federales hove into view, the citizen would simply slip his revolver into some discreet place where he could retrieve it later.

Thus, as I understand the history of the matter, there's nothing culturally negative about "Mexican Carry," as it became known. When we use the term, we're paying homage to generations of men south of the border who refused to give up the right to protect themselves and their families because petty tyrants attempted to make them helpless.

If you read the article closely, it clearly states the felon in question transferred the gun from his pocket to his waistband. That means he was carrying in the Mexican Carry fashion.

Oh, they can do it all they want, but usually they end up looking sort of silly if they don't know the history.

Criminals like that should be commended for their self inflicted wounds. Would have been more funny and fortunate for society if he shot his Johnson off to prevent his gene pool from spreading.

The article states he "acquired" the pistol -

Notice they dont they say he "illegally acquired".

More FUD for the Brady's to spread about how all felons have guns....

I must confess. I am Mexican. And yes. I have Mexican carried. And yes, I use this term all the time. Along with the Mexican reload and Mexican breakfast. I say embrace your stereotype. Be angered not by the words but by the motives behind them.

Oh, and before I get a lecture, this is not my preferred method. On the rare occasion I've done so, it is not chambered.

Go to the original link, it shows a picture of the pistol that appeared to be a Walther. Not sure if this was the pistol he carried.

I too am highly offended. I am Chinese and regret that Calguns has not started any slang associated with Chinese or Asians. We are grossly under-represented in the firearms community.

We must take action to educate the general public!
  • Perhaps something along this original post like Asian Carry, where your gun is stored in a hollowed out math textbook?
  • Maybe more specific like Japanese Carry where you store your gun in a Hello Kitty holster?
  • Let's not forget East Indians are Asians too. Maybe something for them: Curry Carry.

I apologize to anyone I haven't yet offended.

I guess I stand corrected. I was not aware it was an accepted term for carrying in the waistband without a holster. Apparently I was indeed ignorant regarding the wide and accepted use of this term.

Is carrying in the back of the pants Mel Gibson carry?

There's also the "Mexican stand-off", which is used by movies reviewers for those guns pointing at each other that you see at the Quentin Tarantino and John Woo movies. If that term is considered "racist", then I'm really LMAO.

Do you tie the other end around sack and shaft or shaft only?

While the first would be more secure, drawing could cause a slight squeal that would strike laughter in your aggressor.

I will also say that I was ignorant but I am not overly sensitive. I find that the political leanings of CalGuns is a right angle. Lately there has been a strong Anti-Mexican tone to things in the conservative media. I am not saying anti-illegal immigration; anti-Mexican. This is especially so when I here some of our potential presidential candidates propose a wall along the U.S. border. I am just as eager to vote out President Obama as everyone else; however it seems that much of the candidates rhetoric has been very W.A.S.P. oriented.

Unfortunately my own perception of the political leanings of this forum caused me to bleed some of those other issues into this post. I apologize to the OP. I am not a Mexican but I sleep with one every night.

Flame On!

Agreed, Common. Although the anti-illegal immigrant argument really shouldn't be about ethnicity, it seems a lot of racist folls are wayy too eager to jump on board. They're usually okay about not blurting out, "keep out the brown people," but with something that passionate it sometimes slips out.

You're doing it wrong, You tie it to your belt or pants, not your penis.
