This is what i want to see happen. This is what will teach the population that people with guns are good guys

While I agree with the sentiment. I think your out in left field. Causing a scene with a side arm at its center will not help bolster your case.

I do agree that this specific situation was not the best. but all i could do was remain calm and walk off to the side. but this is not the norm. most of the time the most you will get is a few questions from another citizen. which has happoned to me a few times. Those are the times that help. but certainly leaving my gun at home and putting my family in what i think is some level of danger or another is not the answer.

There is obviously more to the story. What specifically happened that caused them to terminate your membership????

I open carry. His basis on his action was that i was being rebellious when i would not sell the gun or give it to him.

can you recommend a conceal holster that will not allow me to accidently release the mag?

You DID NOT need them. What a petty and completely irrational thing to whack some body for!
