Just saying hey from NKY. I've been a ccw'er for a bit and been looking into carrying openly more. Right now I can't bring my self to do it except for when I'm working in the yard or on my vehicles. Basically I haven't left my property. How did you guys get pass this?
It really helps to open carry with someone else. My first foray was with the VCDL memebers in VA when I lived there. They would have OC dinners at local restaurants, and I could get a feel for the various people's reactions and not feel so 'spotlighted' as if I was solo.
I understand there are dinners here in KY as well, might want to look into that.
