One of the drawbacks of open carry.
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.
