I have a 9mm and a .45 acp as my primary go tos. I feel confident with either, because I'm proficient with both.

where is "here"?? We are a right to carry state HERE(Arizona) but i usually only "open" carry when i'm on the UTV in the "Brush" around the "red rocks" or during Volunteer LE work when we are REQUIRED to do so.
I meet many folks who Always open carry,..but i'd rather not advertise,...just saying...

Right you are.
The element of surprise is the MOST important factor in a lethal force situation.
I 1000% support the 'right' to carry, without permission, open or concealed, but for 'tactical survival' reasons I advise against open carry IN A PUBLIC PLACE!.

I couldn't agree more. If something goes down and you're open carrying you better believe you would be the first target or then again it might not happen at all because of it. I just don't like that kind of attention in public places.

A "for Example:" Guy who openly carries at Walmart(also wearing an "Armed Infidel" t-shirt) to me,..is just Advertising "that he has a right" to open carry. To me, there is no need to open carry @ Wally World. If someone WANTED to rip that person off,..they just made it easy for a BG to rob them, by planning to confront them with Drawn Arms(or worse, shoot them from behind) and take everything they own or just bought......Thats just me though...
