    First post on this forum. I actually started out myself going to a lunch in my area that was put on by another forum. There were 8 of us that were OCing and a couple that weren't carrying at all. It was a great ice breaker to get out into public. I have since recieved my CPL and it's probably 50/50 mix of CC and OC. But with warmer weather on it's way it will be OC for the majority of the time. I still believe most sheep think your in LE of some form. Of course if asked I will let them know that I'm just a LAC I know for sure there are a couple people in the Traverse City area that promote OC. Maybe you can get together for a coffee or something to break the ice on OC for you.

    I struggle with the idea of OC admittedly. Oc is no longer legal in FL but when I lived in PA, I only did it while hunting and working on the "Ranch"

    I know this will cause some flack but.......Isn't carrying OC kinda like the shepherd wearing a wolf costume in the middle of the sheep?

    Maybe in the eyes of some sheep. I don't think much of it, mostly because I'm a law abiding citizen that wishes to carry. If my CC permit had arrived already, I'd be CCing most of the time without question. I like OCing, but as I've seen on a couple of occasions, it can become a hassle.

    While I understand the point you are trying to make, the above statement is rediculous. When was the last time you saw a "wolf" OC? The only time you will ever see a BGs gun is when it is in his hands in the act of a crime. The sheep need to know that the sheepdogs are there and that they are not the enemy.

    Only one way to find out! I feel so much more comfortable when I OC vs. CC. Although true, that I don't have my CPL yet, and can only CC on my own property, I find it very burdensome, compared to OC on my hip. Obviously, depending on laws in your state, but I find, first and foremost the tactical advantage and the obvious deterrent my first reasons for OC, a close second is undoubtedly a political statement regarding our God given, constitutionally guaranteed rights.

    Almost. It is more the perception of people and society as a whole (as it has always been) that people who carry guns might be a danger. It is often the case these days that some welcome the negative attention.

    By the way, have I made you aware that your signature quote is completely bogus?

    I say start small. Go to the range some time and then just OC on the way home. Next time add a stop for gas. Next time add a stop for lunch.

    i wish OC would pass in Texas.i would only OC if in a country out in wilderness setting.i wish it would pass just in case i accidentally expose my gun. we have a lot of windy days in Austin.
    my personality is such that i prefer C.C.,i don't invite a lot of attention..
