    Do you OC based on you mood?

    For those of you that OC, do you OC based on your mood? Lets say you have some errands to run and you are really not in the mood for 20 question if confronted about your OC... do you CC instead in order to get your stuff done; even though you'd prefer to OC?

    I find that if I am running to the store quick, I may be dressed a little scrubby, I'm not in the mood to deal with people etc... I'll just CC. I generally OC, but there are times where I don't feel like dealing with people so I CC to avoid having to deal with a potential encounter.

    How about you?

    Yep, I used to OC more than CC, and now I CC more than OC. I still do both at times depending on mood, destination, attire, etc.

    The only contributing factor to "Do I OC or not?" is "Am I wearing a jacket?"

    If yes, then no, I don't OC. If no, then yes, I OC. I don't go out of my way to OC, but I don't go out of my way not to, either.

    It depends on what I'm wearing

    Actually I'm more likely to OC if I'm in a hurry, or just making a quick run and grab at the store.

    Am I off on this? This is why I got my cc. To carry and defend yet not incite.

    Yep I got it. I pulled it off. Sorry just got me thinking before I read that line. Nice to know there's always someone ready to correct a fellows member.

    If your mood fluctuates that much, maybe....well, you know.

    Actually it usually depends on who's with me. My wife prefers CC. So I usually go along with it. Ultimately they both offer me the protection I want for me and my family. Personally I prefer to OC. Then there is the whole jacket thing. It's too much work to try to OC if it's cold, so I don't. And occasionally I just don't want to deal with it. I feel your pain.

    Nope. There are places that I always OC -camping, hunting, boating-, and places (99%) that I never OC.

    I used to OC based on my mood. It was normally quite the opposite of you though. I'd OC when I didn't give a rip. Currently, I sparingly OC for local political reasons.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    I CCed 99% of the time until around 6 months ago or so. Now I OC probably 80% of the time (off duty). I prefer the gun rights statement it makes, and the faster access is nice too.

    I don't mean it in that extent. There are some times more then others where I am more willing to explain why I am OCing. There are times I'm really not in the mood to explain it in a potential encounter... thus why I CC at times.
