Default Big day: Decided to Open Carry

I was originally planning to not carry until I got the Permit to carry concealed; but after doing some research on open carry and getting used to the weight of my G22 on my hip, I chose to exercise my right to open carry here in NC. I got some looks from a couple of people but nothing anti or negative. Actually, the greeter at Wal-Mart commented that she liked "seeing a young man ready to defend himself".

Gotta say that the "nervousness"/excitement was a lot like the first time I wore my kilt in public. Next time I go out I'll wear the kilt AND open carry.

Kilts are much more comfortable...and the ladies are always intrigued.

I'm using a Blackhawks Serpa holster set up as a paddle holster.

...and it shouldn't be any problem with the kilt since I use the same belt. Concealed will be even easier since I can use the cargo pocket on the right side.
