I open carry on my off days because i pf course cant have it at work, no problem. In my state OC is legal at 18 (yes its 18, yes i have checked and have reference, please dont argue, been through enough an proved too many people wrong). Anywho, i only open carry because im 20 and cannot legally conceal it, i do however turn 21 in a few months and the only thing i look forward to is getting my CCW. As far as retention goes, i have a locking paddle holster. No issues yet and i allways try my best to keep aware of my surroundings for people looking to potentally take it.
