    Hi all, The name is Como, im a long time lurker but a first time poster. Just thought id ask a question thats been bouncing around my head for a while and introduce myself.
    What do all of you think about open carry of compact ans sub-compact frame pistols. Shortly i'll be getting my Ruger LCP. I'd like to OC it on a daily basis and i'd like to know if people have any tips. Also, what is your oppinion on OC of small-frame pistols in general?

    Oh yes, Im located in AZ

    Welcome, Como!

    I see no significance in the size of a pistol to be OCed. I sometimes carry a full-size Glock 21, sometimes carry a subcompact G27.

    Carry whatever you're most comfortable shooting. There isn't a standard here that you must conform to.

    Oh, and welcome to OpenCarry.Org!

    My wife OCs her KelTec P3AT and she loves it! She gets asked about it far more than I do though, just more approachable I guess.

    Welcome to OCDO! As to your question, I agree with everyone else. Carry what you are comfortable with, are proficient with and can afford to practice with.
