I open and CC carry.

Last time I checked, I'm neither off, nor have a need to be macho.

For those that feel they give up a technical advantage, then explain uniformed LEO!

This entire thinking about "people who open carry want to show off or have something to prove" is just a media fueled fake narrative that we dont need to buy into.

They are always considering it, however it's never passed yet. Maybe since Oklahoma allows open carry, Texas might not be too far behind.

Open carry of tea gives a bad name to all Tea Partiers...or so the logic dictates.

Using tactical advantage for a reason not to oc is ridiculous. I bet I can get an oc gun into action faster than you can get your cc gun into action. I have never heard of one person who oc'd being taken out by a bad guy. They always shoot the unarmed sheeple. Why should you have to down size your gun and use an inferior caliber in the summer to suit your clothing. Talk about giving up a tactical advantage.

there was a news story recently of someone going through the wringer for ocing in detroit park. they are out there. i dont doubt he does.

police also have backup, vests, and are typically in a higher state of alert when on duty. i know i had my head on a swivel while i was doing mp duty with the trappings and on patrol duty. the gun on the hip in the open does make you a target.

ive done it and dont want to live at that heightened state of constant wariness when i can just conceal it and no one knows the diff.

I to live in Va. I only open carry when I'm home and/or outside, at the range or camping. I have OC into public before with no problems. I usually CC tho to avoid scaring the sheep.

Here in the rural western U.S. open carry has always been legal. Very few open carry in towns. In an area where guns are an every day part of life we don't seemed to set around and discuss CC or OC. That said you know damn near every man you pass on the street is armed.
