Personally I think open carry is better because it makes possible attackers think twice about attacking you and it in most cases is easier to to get your firearm when your open carrying. What do you guys think is best?

Jay, this has been discussed to the point that several threads have been locked before, because of heated arguments about it. many times it spirals out of control. lets hope this one will be different.

better is a subjective word here. open carry, yes it's possible that an attacker might think twice. concealed, you have the element of suprise.

some states don't offer open carry. some states a LAC can open carry without the need for a permit. lots of reasons, some good for both sides of this debate.

Or better yet, search for one of the prior beaten to death threads.

Nothing as satisfying as a big boom.

if people argue in this thread or if it gets heated moderators or admins please delete the thread.
A better question is what do you think and why

Jay, there are times when open carry may be better and times when concealed carry is better.

You mention deterrence as a factor. If everyone could concealed carry and more people did concealed carry, and more crimes were thwarted by concealed carry, because bad guys didn't have any way of knowing who was armed and who wasn't, it could prevent more crimes even on unarmed people.

You may have a point that a visible deterrent could be a factor, but it can also be a catalyst in bringing unwanted attention. It can single you out as someone to take out early. It can get you thrown out of establishments that don't support gun carry at all. It can make other people who are not like-minded feel uncomfortable and make them do stupid things.

I prefer concealed carry when I'm traveling in urban settings. I prefer open carry in the woods or deployed into hostile countries.
