Let me inject a little tidbit that came up during the Tennessee carry permit bills. Most state representatives asked for "open carry" to prevent anti-gunners crying "Gun" if a pesom carrying accidentally exposed his sidearm, say, his jacket blew open in a gust of wind, or some such inadvertant happening.

Open carry is not for urban carry, but rather for outdoors situations where covering vests or jackets are not warranted.

That's my view on the subject.

It's supposed to be a free country carry however it suits you.

Exactly!!!

I never thought of it that way but I can understand that point that oc is not for urban carry ... Makes sense
