I open carry in my home town about a quarter of the time and no one bats and eye at it. A few months ago when I went into a local convenience store the lady ringing me up looked down at it several times and then asked me, "why do you carry a gun?" and I replied, "because it's easier than carrying a police officer." She had a good laugh, we chatted a little about open and concelaed carry laws and I told her, "when I'm in here, you don't have to worry about getting jacked up." Now we talk when I come in and it's all cool. She knows I'm a law abiding citizen carrying all the time whether its visable or not and she is comfortable with me. She asked me one time why I open carried sometimes since I have a CCP and I said, "if there's a guy waiting around the corner of the building looking for someone to jack up when they come out of the store, is he going to choose me if he sees it or pass me up for an easier target?" She said, "good point."
