Default Concealed Carry vs Open Carry

Yes i know this is a well discussed topic but i wanted some opinions. I do intend on getting a concealed carry permit. But i am considering open carry for a short time. My state allows open carry but i have heard some horror stories of Police Harassment. So what are your guy's and gals thoughts?

Ive never been to Ohio, but I hear Toledo is kind of a ruff town? I'd rather carry concealed and let anybody who is wanting to do harm to you not have the upperhand on you.

Toledo earned the label "little Detroit" last year. The city has very few safe locations and i do not have the money to afford a 1 million dollar+ home in one of those community's. But that is a good point

Id go the route that letting them think you are just a joe schmoe and can't defend yourself. If he sees a weapon on you and still wants trouble, then his weapon is probably bigger and he already has his hand on his???

Yep, although the threads one can search for have already been discussed over and over, i prefer to read current threads and get opinions of people i 'know' and appreciate, more than strangers that have come and gone long ago.
