Yes. Being armed is preferable to being unarmed.
No. OC is absolutely not for me.
Other. I will specify via post (nothing illegal, of course).

It would make me uncomfortable to do so. The would get nervous, and give me stares. I'm too young to pull off the off duty cop look.
On the other hand, my main carry gun and soon to arrive holster will look more or less like police issue but still.
Now if more people did it, I'd be more than happy to OC. It is legal in Alabama but I've never seen anybody do it where I live.
An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.

Are we being realistic here or am I missing something. If some future President would ban CC don't you think he would be smart enough to ban OC also?

Absolutely. It is much better to be armed than to be a target.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

Yes, but, only in limited areas.
We have that law about going armed to the terror of the public.

I agree...I might as well sling up an AK at that point. I could leave it in the gun rack of the truck while I talked to my landscaping customers. Of course, those would already be banned in the same bill so yeah...It would be time to strap on a thigh rig.

OC is legal in Pa right now, but my personal choice is to CC. If CC were made illegal then I would have to OC, and probably would.
However in Pa my movements, while armed, would be restricted because carrying a loaded weapon in a vehicle is not legal without a LTCF. I could not even unload the gun, put it in the trunk, and go to the store for a loaf of bread and then OC while at the store. And the store is too far to walk.
In Pa without a LTCF there are a few exceptions for transporting a firearm such as to or from a gun shop or a gun dealer. But you can't unload it, transport it, and OC wherever you want without having a LTCF for the vehicle transport.

I just don't understand how a state can allow open carry and prohibit vehicle carry; I know that many states are like that.

If CC were no longer an option I'd have to OC. Easy choice.
