Just writing to introduce myself...glad I found this board. I've had my GFL for about a month now, and I have to say it is a great feeling knowing that I'm able to take my and my family's safety in hand. Open Carry is where it's at, for sure. Getting folks used to citizens having a firearm on their person is super important, especially here in the wanna-be cosmo city of Atlanta. Used to open carry back in Detroit, mainly due to the town's unfriendlyness...also Michigan's permit process is a pain.
Welcome aboard. I've had my GFL since 2001, but I only started carrying openly this year, after we won the battle over HB 89 and it went into effect. I had considered OC for years but hadn't done it for fear of being hassled by law enforcement over it. I've been carrying openly more than concealed since the beginning of June, and I haven't had any negative experiences with the LEOs here even though I've carried several times in front of Hinesville police officers and Liberty County deputies. I have had some wide eyed stares and a few questions from people about my carrying, but no major confrontations with anyone. Thus far it hasn't been a big deal in the Hinesville/Liberty County area.
