    I OC when im hunting or hiking in the back country out here in New Mexico. Never had the nerve to do it in the cities, I do see people doing it from time to time though.

    I just OCed today at a park. Several people passed me strong side and........................... said, "hi."

    No one even seemed to notice my sidearm, or else they didn't care.

    I OC in KY about 30% of the time. No problems yet.

    I OC sometimes, maybe 10%, basically because my most comfortable holster would not CC well. It is a paddle and makes my carrying so much more enjoyable. However, I dont like the attention and the "stigma" some place on those of us who "do" OC. I would OC more if not for that.

    No offense to any LEO's here, but on another forum there is a LEO who makes it clear that he feels OC'ers are just seeking attention and do it for that reason and that reason only. It is this that prevents me from OC'ing more than I do.(Not simply this LEO's views but alot of other people feel this way also, as I'm sure many of you know).

    I know alot of people feel that OC'ing is basically done for attention, to feel "big", and many other reasons, but I simply find it more comfortable is all.

    i selected the "tried it" option...but really is situationally dependant: hunting, walking around campgrounds/trails/parks, in my yard, etc.

    Ditto, except I was in Hampton Roads vs. NOVA. I've OCed a few times in Mississippi and never had a problem, but my exposure has been fairly limited. I can't carry in any form a lot of times, because I'm usually on my way to/from the military base, the Post Office, or church.

    Open carry in Springfield is perfectly legal, but I have no interest in spooking anyone and having to be hassled by the PD.
