    People judge books by their covers, and judge other people similarly. Present a nice cover. :)

    That is SO TRUE!

    I don't open carry because:
    1. I don't want to attract attention.
    2. I don't want to have to explain myself to strangers or answer their questions. I'm no public persona.
    3. I don't want to have the owner kick me out and boycott every business out there not friendly to gun carry, though I will not refuse their requests to leave. But I will boycott them as a result of that.

    However, you have a very interesting post and it is a great way to let others know what to expect if you open carry. I have also witnessed 3 people in the Richmond area open carry and a couple of my co-workers also state that they open carry after I told them what I saw. And out of those 3 I saw, I have also personally talked to 2 of them. Both of them even told me that they never were hassled by any cops or called by paranoid passersby. Never asked them any questions and instead commended them on their courage to exercise their open carry rights, even talked about guns as well as what we carry and own. And, I do commend you the same way.

    The sheeple seem to forget that a little over a century ago, everyone open carried. Fortunately nowadays most people will assume you're a LEO.

    Glad you brought that up. I don't want to be mistaken for a cop either. Not everyone likes cops.

    My wife doesn't want me to OC when I'm out with the boy, because she doesn't want LEO attention while I'm there. Legal yes, but not all police recognize that or leave you alone. I OC maybe 10% of the time.
