    My wife open carried for first time today!

    My wife and I took the dog for a long walk though our neighborhood this morning. She started off with a sweatshirt over her OWB holster/revolver, but it got hot, and it came off, leaving the holster very obvious open carry.
    On the way back we stopped an talked to several new neighbors. I even noticed one elderly gent take notice of it. Not a word or question from anyone, nor any police at the door when we got home!
    Pretty cool!

    Good for you and your wife. I would get stars here since some of my neighbors are from NJ

    Another indication of how much of a non-issue it can be, if people simply think and act rationally.

    Kudos to both of you!

    Great story!

    Tennessee is a very open carry friendly and generally a very gun friendly state. It is a great state to live in!

    True that. Nice to be a team. Plus, she's more darn accurate with a snubby than anyone else I know!
