I don't get it. What's the difference between UOC and carrying a hammer? The hammer would actually be more effective in a self-defense situation. What am I missing?

I also wonder how often UOCers are stopped by law enforcement to confirm their weapons are unloaded. My guess is "quite often."

Perhaps this falls into the "the longest journey begins with a small step" category.

Yeah, that is weird, Eric. But California residents, and especially San Francisco residents, have probably developed a high degree of adaptability to awful laws.

Reminds me of a story a fellow told me. He served in the U.S. Army as an MP in Germany and carried a sidearm with a loaded magazine. But the rules prohibited a bullet in the chamber, so he developed a technique whereby he could keep a bullet in the chamber and still pass impromptu inspections. It took some practice, but he could remove the gun from the holster, eject the magazine, and rack the slide against the holster to remove the bullet from the chamber. The bullet would fall to the floor, but it happened so fast that as far as anyone knew, it came out of the magazine.

The folks at the BAOC site say it only takes two seconds to load the handgun, and they prove it with a couple of video links.

And I think you are probably right about the LEO checks.

Very informative article!
