    If that ever did happen, I would imagine the day would be kinda like 'coming out of the closet'?

    Sadly, if oc'ing, I bet I'd clear out a craft store in 10minutes.

    (I've never oc'd before....just don't have the guts, really)

    I wonder....if oc were the only choice, how many establishments/places of business would start posting 'no guns' around here.

    Yes, might even start carrying a carbin off the sholder. If people are going to see my gun, I might just as well carry one that has enough oomph to really get the job done.

    Had to vote open carry. I would change my habits, maybe carry less, but ultimatly would OC when deemed legal and appropriate.

    side topic- I am fairly sure it is against the law to possess a loaded rifle on your person or in your car in WA State?

    Maybe avoid wearing extra layers in winter or wear short jacket and Rambo-like thigh holster?

    I know we have a few regular OCers here---seriously, what do you guys do when wearing jackets in cold weather?

    I am always armed unless I am in one of the very few places in PA. where I cannot legally be armed. I carry concealed all the time.

    Sometimes I open carry (of course) at home and sometimes at work since I can open carry there if I want to.

    If concealed carry became illegal and open carry was the only option - I would tuck in my shirt the minute I found out about the law and I would open carry everywhere that I legally carried concealed.

    If open carry and concealed carry of handguns both became illegal then what would I be carrying?

    If that were to happen then the U.S. would have become a very different place and I would be carrying a rifle.

    I would still carry around the house, and on my personal time. Work however is another issue, and since I work 5-12s, there is most of my time.

    I have the same problem (issues) with some of my customers. Some could not care less. The majority however would drop me on the spot.

    For me, I would not carry as often, but yes, I would still carry.

    No, I think it attracts too much attention in a densely populated area such as where I live.
