If the guy is going to pull your gun to do something bad, hes going to bring his own. No one is going to see you OC'ing and get inspired to rob the store
If it weren't for snakes and critter-control there wouldn't be much 'need' to carry a gun in low populated arias.
Assuming one is already going to carry a gun, the preference of carrying openly, for me has more to do with ease of dress and of drawing the gun in an emergency. There's also a degree of public safety favoring open carry: Open carry allows the use of full-size pistols, which have better grip, longer barrels and are heavier, all of which contribute to an accurate shot and reduce the chance of shooting something/someone unintentionally.
Retention holster is a good idea, but once again no one robs people with visable guns.
My cell phone costs as much as my glock, it is in a non retention holster and NO one has ever tried to grab it even in a dense crowd
This is a urban gun myth!

I've heard someone is trying to pass,or come up with a bill for OC in my state.The one thing that worries me,is someone taking mine,but,it may not would ever happen.So far as me personally,unless i had no option,i wouldn't OC.I just don't want to draw any attention to myself.That said,it would be a nice option for those who would want to.
