Thread: new to OC
I am new to open carry, and I must say it is a very different experience. My reasoning for OC is I do not want myself or any body around me to become a victim if there is any thing I can do about it. At first I did not think I needed a CC permit, however it seems
very easy to have my coat or other clothing cover my holster and gun by accident. This puts me at risk with the law does it not? I prefer OC because I want others to know. The deterrent factor is large. I also believe in "use it or lose it" with our rights. I also feel somewhat empowered by any kind of carry. Safer for sure.
If TRUMP 2016 loses then I will shrug off my WHITE MAN'S BURDEN and leave the world to the Dindus and Done Nuffins. Read and understand Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged as a prescription for the future. TRUMP 2016
Welcome Chuckie! Those are good reasons. For me, without going into detail since I've posted it before, I was the subject of an attempted car jacking type scenario a while back (I was CC at the time but couldn't get to it!). Now with OC I doubt anybody would be foolish enough to follow me to my vehicle again. There is definitely a deterrent factor and no CC-only advocate will ever be able to convince me otherwise now.
Welcome to the forum ! Many people have many reasons for carrying ... one really does not need any reason.
Carry on !
