Personally to me it does not matter how you carry .... I have OC'd on occasion, and do it frequently at home. Especially if I am out riding a tractor, 4 wheeler, running a chainsaw... for me it is what fits best at the time and what kind of weapon I want with me. The times I have OC'd, say down to the store, was not a big deal and not even sure 80% even noticed....I carried it like it had been there forever, and did not act stupid....hand hovering over it, or try to hide it, there it is, period.
I think a lot of it has to do with mind set, and conditioning, not only of the carrier, but the poeple exposed to it. I am not going to strap my AR across my shoulder and carry that around, and would be watchfull of anyone that did, as I would see that as a posed threat. If i see an OC'r , which is not a lot but some, I do not see them as so much an opposed threat, but as a person of interst, and do , personally, watch where they go, sit ect. I call that situational awareness, not paranoia, Why should I be paranoid, I have a gun too !!!
Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American GI. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.
I asked my stock broker the other day, what I should be investing in ....his reply, canned goods n ammo !!!
Half of the people you will talk to do not understand why you need to do something that they themselves don't feel a need for.
The other half want laws to that effect.
OC's doesn't bother me as it is common where I live. I see two general types of OCing.
#1 Is a gun with a person attached, You can spot the gun, it is the first thing you notice, from over 100 feet away, they do everything they can to make you notice they are Oc'ing
#2 Is a person with a gun attached. You don't notice the gun unless you look. ( my favorite)
