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.
