I am a native Ohioan and was discouraged from Open Carry because I didn't know what would happen. Luckely I had a friend in Arizona that that he did it all the time. I had him OC in Phoenix and then I did to. I open carried in the mall, Wall Mart, Hometown buffet, and Auto zone. I got a few looks and someone said,"Nice piece are you a cop?" I said no I just a citizen. All in all I had no problems. I just a pain the the ass to go load and unload the gun from my trunk because someone might wonder what I'm up too because I don't have a CCW. I plan on OC in ohio when I get back here is a pic.
