I'm not sure that open carry makes you safer. Right now, I'm wearing a $20 Timex that is the most valuable thing I have on me. However, if I was openly carrying a $700-$800 firearm and went out amongst the unwashed masses, I'm sure some of them might think I'd be worth clobbering or shooting outright.

Not disturbing at all. *rolls eyes*.

One other thing I have noticed is people who OC in places that it is not normal to OC have a chip on their shoulder. I had a douche bag at Acedemy in Atlanta who was OC ask me WTF I was looking at. I never made eye contact or said a word to this guy. Other people who were OC in unusual place I walk up to them smiling and they scowl. I say hello and they just give me a dirty look. Maybe because I am 6'4" 260 lb intimidates them. Honestly, I have only met one guy that was OC that was pretty cool. He was on a bike and preferred the retention of duty holster.

Anti gun people read these forums. They copy and paste our words in their literature. Think about what you are typing.

Have to agree with you there Fernando. Some folks need to learn to act their age, others need to learn not to.
