    Travelling from Texas

    Hi - I am going to be travelling from Texas to go see Yellowstone and will also plan to spend a little time in Montana. I see your state is open carry friendly but wanted to make sure it is generally accepted. Is it safe to do so but I don;t want to get harassed. Any tips you can give me please?

    Steer clear of the tourists , they're the ones who freak out.

    I know My experience is that the locals don't seem to mind much, but locals here in Montana have been waning in the past 20 years.

    The only folks who look at me sideways are implants and Canadians. How do I know? Live here long enough and they stick out like a sore thumb.

    Just carry like its normal, you won't or shouldn't get harassed here in Montana.

    I carry a spare tire, in case I have a flat. I carry life insurance, in case I die. I carry a gun, in case I need it.
