    No, unless on the range. IMO its a macho bs thing. I think it makes the sheep nervous and has a negative affect on public opinion. Some would say, "who cares". Well if that public opinion could lead to restrictions then I care. Too each their own...

    Even if OC is passed in Texas in 2013, I will still carry concealed--just my preference. If I'm armed, it's my business. My worry (and the worry of a lot of other people in Texas) is that OC, if passed, will cause many businesses to restrict concealed carry. It's all in how the law is written.

    Cheers!

    It is nice to wake up in the morning and have options. If I know I am going to be around the house most of the day, or only visiting OC friendly businesses then I carry open. On Sundays I CC for church. I probably carry open 50% of the time and feel quite comfortable doing it.

    How is the public ever going to be "pro gun" if they never know anyone is carrying?

    I don't think it's for me but I applaud those that are brave enough to do so.

    Ya know, I wish the OC crowd would just quit going into the concealed forum and bashing concealed carry! Maybe then the cc'ers would leave the OC threads to those who actually have something constructive to add.

    Thanks for everyone's opinion. I wasn't suggesting OC was wrong or shouldn't be legal. It isn't legal here in Ar. Just wanted everyone's .02 on it. I personally prefer CC but wouldn't mind one bit if OC became legal here. Merry Christmas.

    If I didn't approve of OC, I wouldn't be reading threads in the OC subforum.

    Suprise is a better tactic for OFFENSE rather than DEFENSE. To use suprise in defense, you have to have already been attacked, and are therefore REACTING to the attack.

    OC/CC is analogous to a door/alarm system. The door (if locked) defends your property by being a door, blocking access. The alarm only does its job AFTER it is tripped. Kinda like a carried weapon vs a police officer, the carried weapon works NOW, the police officer works AFTER. OC works NOW, CC works AFTER. Now, if it were NATIONWIDE CC then perhaps it would be more effective as the BGs would not know who was armed. Now, they take a gamble and more than likely odds are their potential victim is not gonna be armed-too much hassle to get a CWP for most people. However if it were easier/nation wide....perhaps the odds would not be so favorable.

    "......keep and bear arms.." Is open carry and allowed via the 2nd amendment. However, we the people allowed the federal/state governments take or restrict that right from us.......
