    Concealed no need for me to advertise. Even if it was legal to open carry in Fla I wouldn't do it, just me though..

    By choice I conceal, nearly all of the time. To certain venues under certain conditions I have carried openly before, but probably less than 5% of the time.

    My preference is, generally, to fly under the radar and be underestimated. CC complements that better, for me.

    Choices are good but I conceal. I prefer to have the element of surprise in my favor.

    I do both. I prefer to CC in some instances, but like the freedom of OC in others.

    This question will ALWAYS come down to personal preference.

    If it's a OC party for demo or public awareness purposes; I'm good with it and will probably participate.
    Other than those reasons; you will never know I have it on me unless a BG threatens me or others around me with deadly force.

    open carry not allowed here. If I had a choice, I would probably still carry concealed. I prefer to stay anonymous and in the background...but prepared for bad stuff.

    I will do both, it just depends of how much of a hurry I am in. As far as drawing attention, when I have OC'ed it didn't seem like many if anyone noticed except for little kids. Kids just see everything.

    In Georgia we can carry either way. My choice is to carry concealed.

    Open carry all day for me. I open carry every where I go. Best Buy, the grocery store, pumping gas, picking up a burger at 5guys, or a burrito at Chipotle. I open carry at Northern Tool, I open carry at the parts store. The only place I don't open carry is those places which have signage posted prohibiting firearms (not talking federal buildings and schools, a whole different animal there), and then I will just leave my pistol at home rather than leave it in the car for some thief to get his hands on. When I get my CC permit, you can bet the only time I will CC is to those places which post no firearms. Those signs have no force of law here, other than the tenant/owner of the property being able to ask me to leave for carrying a firearm. If I refuse, I am trespassing and only subject to a civil fine. Of course concealed means concealed, so no one should ever know I have it unless I am placed in the unfortunate situation of having to shoot some poor dumb ******* who thought the "no firearms allowed" sign meant everyone in the building was unarmed.
