    A few years ago you could carry the gun in plain view, but not anymore, at least not legally. The PN probably will not bother you, but if someone with the G2 catches you, it will be a problem.

    It is not a good idea to have the gun in sight anyway. You could be the target of a robbery attempt, as the gun is very valuable here.

    Carry it concealed. Get yourself an Uncle Mike inside the waist holster and keep your shirt out. You can buy the holster either here or in the US.

    I sometimes use an outside the waist holster, with my shirt out. You cannot see it, and the draw is easy.

    This guy makes a great holster. You would have to check if it will fit your gun. He makes them all custom.

    Its always better to have your weapon concealed because if you show it off someone will go for your weapon first then what do you do? Always better to have the element of suprise on your side.

    Your father is in the DR or NY when he openly carry his firearm? Because to my knowledge you can't do either in NYC or DR and all licenses are for conceal carry only. (virtually impossible in NYC)

    Anywho, I agree with badpiece and sky, concealment is the way to go!! I would like to add that the sky-marshall holster(cross draw) is good and designed if you are driving car. What type of license do you have in the Bronx??

    Default Be Wise.. Don't break the Law!

    It is now illegal to display a handgun on your person, here in the DR (even with a "Porte Permit". If you are an EXTRANJERO, don't do it! You are asking for trouble. Just use simple intelligence. When you are living/visiting as a foreginer in someones else's country... dont break the law...you will be happier for it, believe me!! Only legal Dominican Residents (Blue Card) can own and/or carry firearms in the DR. No exceptions, unless you have a Presidential decree issued.

    If it's illegal in the Dr to carry an unconcealed that's news to me. You see countless firearms on people every day. Then again people don't stop for lights, why would they start here

    First off as a foreigner I wouldn't carry a gun around...but if you're going to then, I think the conceal method is the way to go as some people have already mentioned. I've had discussions with my brother about this and he thinks that plain view is better because of the deterrent factor. He carries his out in the open and could care less, but then again he's not a foreigner, has all the permits and knows people in case he finds himself in a pickle.

    I think concealing the weapon is definitely the best advice for some one living in the country. But you might want to go on a roof top and let a couple of rounds go just to let the locals know that you have a gun and not to mess with you. This is if you are staying in a barrio which you probably are.
