A beer while open carrying on your own property

Open Carry is carrying a firearm unconcealed in Ohio. OC does not require a concealed handgun license, but the practice requires intimate knowledge of the law since there are places and situations where OC is prohibited but carrying concealed would be permitted. OC is also likely to attract attention. This forum is for discussion of OC, not for debating the pro's and con's or coordinating any type of protest events.

YMMV is NOL.
No, I am not a policeman. I am a mercenary praying for peace on Earth.
I don't want a tactical advantage. I want the bad guys to repent and find a new line of work.

I'm guessing he means that "Your Mileage May Vary" is "Not on List". It is, you just have to scroll down a few to Charben's post.

Nice thread hijack. :roll:

There was just not a way to pm the person who asked what YMMV meant... :roll: :roll:
"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun... Let your gun, therefore, be the constant companion of your walks." Thomas Jefferson, 1785.

Perhaps the focus should be less on the LEGALITY of consuming alcohol, even on private property, but rather on the physiological effects that alcohol produces in the human body. Does ANYONE want to be at all impaired if they need to use their gun?

There is ample evidence dating back to the 1950s that alcohol impairs function, even in small doses, (example, https://www.utsa.edu/utsapd/Crime_Preve ... Skills.pdf).

Anyone who disbelieves can do their own google search.

While the evidence that I am posting relates to driving, the generalizations are obvious:

JUDGMENT: The ability to make sound and responsible decisions.
• Alcohol affects your mental functions first, and
judgment is the first to go, which means reason
and caution are quickly reduced.
•Can be affected as low as .02% BAC.

CONCENTRATION: The ability to shift attention from one point of action to another.
• Alcohol impairs a driver's ability to concentrate
on the multiple tasks involved in driving, such
as vehicle speed, position of the vehicle, other traffic on the road,
tuning the radio, and
participating in conversation with passengers.
•Leaves the driver concentrating on a singular action.

COMPREHENSION: The ability to understand situations,
signs, and signals.
• Alcohol impairs the driver's ability to "interpret"
situations, signs, and/or signals which a driver
must understand and/or respond to quickly to be safe on the road.
• Leaves the driver easily confused and not able
to respond to emergency situations or to
comprehend the meaning of simple signals
(ie: running through a stop sign).

COORDINATION: The ability to coordinate motor skills.
• Impairs ability to coordinate motor skills, beginning with the
fine motor skills (putting key in
ignition) up to gross motor skills (walking to the car).

Loss of coordination severely affects
reaction time and ability to react.


VISION & HEARING ACUITY: The ability to see and hear
clearly.
• Reduces visual acuity up to 32%.
• Reduces peripheral vision resulting in tunnel vision.
• Impairs ability to judge distance and depth perception (position of car).
• Dilates pupil, slows down reactions of pupil
resulting in problems with on-coming headlights
(glare) and "blind" driving.
• Reduces the ear's ability to hear, muffling sounds,
and interfering with the ability to determine
the direction of sounds.

REACTION TIME: Ability to see and understand a situation, then take an action.

• Severely reduced due to impairment of comprehension and coordination in particular.
•Slows down reaction time by 15-25%,
resulting in crashes and accidents which could have been
avoided if no alcohol was in the system.

Welcome jackster. That was quite the lengthy first post.
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!

Is it possible that alcohol may help relax you as you pull your weapon so as you take aim, your hand isn't bouncing all over the place and you can actually aim properly?

Just giving a positive twist to drinking some hops and barley.

And yet our neighbor, Pennsylvania, allows adult beverages while carrying. There aren't reports of CHL holders going on drunken rampages, bad shoots or any other misdeeds after they have partaken.
