Personally I have never felt the need to resurrect the old paradigm of open carry. I carry concealed.

It's crazy to think this is happening in my own backyard... I always feel a little uneasy going to the local CVS/Walgreens.

While I believe in the right to keep and bear arms obviously, I will never OC. I believe this "freaks out" the anti-gun people, and undermines our cause. We don't need to be fueling the fire of more gun control measures when that old lady that saw you with a gun on your belt, goes home and writes a letter to her congressman about all these "gun toting crazies". There are more of them, than there are of us. Sad, but true.
Me, personally, I would not advertise.

Open carry is my choice, where I live I am not old enough for a CHP(but can OC go figure) besides I've got a lot more practice with drawing from a openly carried holster than concealed, even if I was the first target I hope that would give any CC'ers nearby extra time to figure out what's going on,
Maybe I'm just young and stupid but OC works for me
