    Knowing is half the battle.

    I have carried a sidearm nearly every day for 40 years. I almost always carry concealed, simply to avoid drawing attention.

    With very hot weather prevailing lately I have started carrying openly, to and from my shop, gas stations, convenience stores, etc. When doing so I am always neatly dressed, I make eye contact and smile, greeting people courteously. Most of the time this works, but occasionally there will be a person who just freaks out.

    Open carry will have to become a common practice for a long time before many folks will stop going into panic mode any time they see a citizen wearing a sidearm in public.

    I think loboleather has it right. Exposure and a pleasant attitude will be the way to convince people.

    Again, I'll take a moment to suggest when one is carrying openly, one should be neat and clean and have a decent holster. Looking like a refugee from a chain gang is not particularly reassuring, armed or not.

    Maybe he has a warrant out on him or is on the run and thought you might be an LEO and recognize him. LOL.
