Man robbed of brandy-new Walther P22

Quote:GRESHAM, OR (KPTV) -
A man openly carrying his new handgun was robbed on a Gresham street by a man with a gun of his own.

Police were called out to the area of 172nd and Glisan Street at 2:10 a.m. Saturday.

Investigators said the 21-year-old victim bought a handgun earlier in the day and was openly carrying it while talking to his cousin.

They said a man approached them and asked for a cigarette. Talk eventually turned to the victim's new purchase, before the robber pulled his own gun from his waistband and said, "I like your gun, give it to me," according to police.

The victim handed over his gun and the suspect ran away.

The suspect is described as a light-skinned black man, 19 to 23 years old, 6'1" with a skinny build. He had black, wavy hair and was clean cut, except for a small patch of facial hair on his chin. The man was wearing gray sweatpants, a white T-shirt and flip-flops.

The weapon he used in the robbery was described as a black gun, possibly semi-automatic. The stolen gun is a black Walther brand, model P22. It is semi-automatic and .22LR-caliber.

A Walther P22. Not just a P22 but a new P22. Now from what I've seen of P22s, they are kind of finicky when well broken-in, and just, well, unreliable when brand new.

Questions about carrying a .22 aside, why would you OC a small-caliber, un-broke-in, notoriously finicky pistol other than to show off your new toy?

(And I do carry my well-broken-in and no-longer-finicky SR22 in a Fobus OWB to the horse barn on occasion, especially if we have a report of a questionable small varmint hanging out. It's just more accurate than the LCP, and less likely to make a mess pegging a small varmint. But on the way to and from, I cover up.)

I've done stupider things at 21. Not gun related stupid things, but just stupider things in general.

After midnight? That's when you let it all hang down and find out what it's all about Tongue.

Maybe he should have concealed his hang-down or it's surrogate.

Technically it's always after midnight.
Everytime we look the other way when someone else loses rights we disagree with, we make it easier to lose the rights we support.

False: at exact midnight it is not after midnight.
