A New Concern While Open Carrying
So I have been OCing about 30% of the time I carry for about a month. Before that I had never OCed. Anyway, I was OCing at a local park while hiking in the woods. About 10 minutes into the hike, I hear gunshots. Now, this is not uncommon, as this park is out in the country a bit, and people occasionally shoot on their property adjacent to the park.
This got me thinking, though, that I may be placing myself in an awkward position by open carrying. In any situation in which shots are fired, the guy with the gun openly on his hip may be a prime suspect (which may lead to an awkward situation with LEOs). I am not going to stop open carrying, but this gave me something to think about.
