I occasionally open carry as Im legal to, I really dont care what people think about my choice to OC. Everyday I see a couple OC'ers in my area and it seems like Im seeing more of it. Ive never had anyone panic or even bat an eye at my firearm.

I personally prefer the element of surprise, therefore, I always cc. Here in South Central Georgia I do see a lot of oc's at Walmart, the mall and public places and some people look but don't make a big deal about it. I believe it's a matter of preference.

The only time I open carry is when I am hunting and hiking. I don't expect to find an ice cream stand in the woods.

Now if absolutely everyone had a gun and oc'd than we woild have a rather polite and safe society.
Not true on either count!!!!
If you train to draw from a concealed carry it is just as fast as open. It depends on your gear and level of training.

Reference a 'polite' society, see below!!!

See what below, theres nothing there, just as your argument, lol. There will always be a slight delay, even a fraction of a second, for you still will have to move clothing out of the way, and what are you going to do if one hand is injured? And history, correctly examined proves out that an openly armed society is far more polite to eachother, sure there will always be crime and criminals. In the old west the main violence was bandits and drunken gamblers, many towns had ordinances against wearing arms in town, but that didnt stop anyone, thats why the derringer was so popular.

Depends, i had a beretta, i never put the manual safety on while carrying, i carried it half cocked, i did like the built in drop safety. I now edc (both cc & oc) a ruger da revolver, it has a transfer bar safety, which i think was pure genius. Like oc, manual safeties have their place, it is more of a personal choice, as is the choice of revolver or semi-auto. The option should be available, if you want to cc with the safety on, and not one in the pipe, than thats a personal choice, just be aware of the drawbacks.

Basically there shouldnt be any criticism on any of it, just the facts and the choice and leave it at that.
