    I don't understand open carry.

    I haven't been a member here very long so maybe this has been discussed before.

    I have read several posts here in the open carry section and there is nothing but complaints about how you were treated/mistreated at various places because you open carried.

    Seems to me that some who open carry do so just because they can. Yet others do so because they feel more manly or tougher. It also seems that you are pushing the gun issue right down the throats of the gun haters making things even more difficult for those of us that want to own guns and/or carry concealed.

    I see no logical reason to open carry. It doesn't make any sense at all tactically or as a deterant.

    When I see someone open carry I think to myself "what an idiot. it's hard enough for us to keep our gunrights and this ******* is showing off".

    So why do you do it? What am I missing?

    And I don't want to hear "because I can" or "it's my right".

    Please enlighten me.

    I couldn't agree with you more. But boy are you going to take a beating for your views on this or any other forum. I may be wrong but I will be keeping a close eye on the replies to this one.

    Discussion regarding open carry in those States where it is legal to do so. This is not a place to debate the virtues of open vs concealed carry.
    You might note the title and take heed.
