Because I can.
Because it's not illegal.
Because NC Supreme Court has ruled that the phrase "bear arms" means to carry them openly.
Because I think it does folks good to see normal people going about their day armed and NOT shooting everything in sight.
Because it's more comfortable.
Because I don't want to change holsters.
Because I want to exercise my rights, all of them.
Because I have had some great conversations with folks about gun rights, laws, etc because I was OC'ing.
And to the chagrin of many on this board, I'm not a raving lunatic out trying to cause trouble, scare little old ladies, piss everybody off, and sue the police department as my retirement plan. And to be honest, I kind of like making those folks a bit uncomfortable.
