I don't have the choice--South Carolina is a concealed-carry only state.
I choose to carry concealed because it is very non-confrontational. I live in an area where the summer tourist feed our families for the whole year. I don't want to remind them that feces occur anywhere and at any time.
The 'surprise' factor is also a big plus. I may look like an easy mark - old and overweight, but I am the very last person you want to rob. The very, very last!

I agree with EXSoldier,
No tactical advanage to open carry, you are just setting yourself up as a potential target. I will remain concealed.
