Hi guys and gals. I'm new to the forum and I have been reading quite a bit and am starting to rethink my opinion on open carry. I have always been of the mindset that it would draw undo attention to you from those you don't want it from, not just regular citizens but the bad guys. I'm really impressed with what I have read here. Most notibly how accepted OC is. I would have never thought that. I do admit, I dont remember where I was but I did see a man OC once while I was CC. I did look at him quiet a bit. We made eye contact he smiled and nodded and that was it. Just stuck out to me and I was probably more aware of hime do to the fact that I was CC at the tme.
With that being said, I have a few questions.
- If I am carrying IWB holster, can I just pull the top of my shirt over the grip? I believe it has to be completely visible correct?
- I currently only own one OWB, a Milt Sparks 55Bn. Would that be acceptable or do you guys recommend some thing like a Serpa?
- Are there any military that have ran into senior members of their command? That is something I worry about. Even thought I'm a SNCO I could see a less informed (less willing to listen) senior member try to make life hard if they see me. Anyone have any experience with this?
So my last question is are there any OCers in the Fredericksburg or Massaponix (Sp?) that would like to get together for a OC dinner in the area? I think maybe OCing for the first time with some other OCers would kind of break me in, you know the whole group therapy thing.
Thanks for all that post on this site. I have learn a ton of new information and love it! Hopefully I'll take the leap and try my first open carry soon!
