Only time I open carry is when I can cover it with a jacket or hoodie. I would never carry where it's open and can be seen. Can make people uncomfortable and you're a target to someone who scopes out a place before they rob it.

There is no up side to open carry.

I believe open carry is a right. I care not about whether people are uncomfortable. If more people did open carry, those sensitive types would become accustomed to seeing it. However as an individual, I believe you have the right to carry as you wish.

A bigger peeve of mine is those that carry a gun, but no reload.

See these jacklegs on YouTube just out looking for someone to question them on why they are open carrying a weapon. Just asking for trouble IMO. I have no desire to open carry.

I dont want to be shot in the back paying for gas cause somebody walks in to rob the place and sees me standing there. For that reason alone ill stick to concealed carry.

I think there should be "constitutional carry" but I am not a fan of open carry.

I’ll keep mine covered, and it has nothing to do with some snowflakes feelings.

I've seen the morons in shorts and tennis shoes carrying full size 45s in drop rigs mid thigh in Walmart. I think that was Ohio. But I don't have a problem with it. I see both sides.

There are a lot of people who don't want to know you are carrying and this is one thing I don't want to stir up a stink about.

Constitution does not state any restrictions how you are to bear arms. Agree with open carry or not; the government has no business approving or restricting you right to choose any style of bearing those arms. No person, institution, elected official or government agency has that right!

I conceal carry in public.

If I'm going up to the lease or in the woods somewhere I'll open carry my single action 357 or 40cal every now & then.
