    Question CPL Holders -- OC Versus CC

    An honest poll. Out of all the time you are carrying, approximately what percentage of the time that you are carrying are you OCing? (Rather than concealed).

    Hmmmmm.... how to answer that one...

    Let's see...

    I OC 99.something% of the time...

    and..

    I CC 99.something% of the time.

    It is a rare occasion indeed that I am totally unarmed... rare enough to warrant marking it on the calendar!
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    Where is this poll you speak of?
    While many claim to support the right to keep and bear arms, precious few support the practice.

    I didn't make it a poll. Didn't want to restrict answers.
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    I OC 99.9% of the time. The only time that I might CC is after I was asked to, as I'm leaving, and that respect would only be given to a private residence. In a business, I would leave, but not cover.

    Um what is the point of this thread?

    Since I don't keep a diary it would be hard to guess, and it depends on my mission. If it's just going and doing things for myself unrelated to my making a living? Probably 60% open. Related to my income 100% concealed for good reason. This is really a question most people can't answer with any accuracy I am guessing, as I think most people are people first and happen to carry and don't dwell on how much they want to CC or OC. Meaning they don't keep records.

    All be it an interesting curiosity.

    I agree with Bailenforcer.. I aim to carry first... which way OC or CC really depends on the situation.
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    Very few people here can say in honesty that they OC at work. Many that don't carry concealed at work.

    In my opinion, the better question is how often people OC vs CC away from work.

    My life these days is too hectic to put any meaningful numbers down, but I can say for sure that I carry everywhere I can legally.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    If I carry at work, I OC... because I must.

    I am at the other end of the spectrum. I CC everywhere I go. I have only OC'd once or twice. I have ment to OC a few times but have chickened out and just CC'd.

    Come to an event and OC there! It's a lot easier to get over the initial fear, for lack of a better word, when there are a lot of people around you doing the same thing.

    I made it out to one event a while ago, and really enjoyed it. I should make it to more.

    Sorry, I've been AWOL for a while.

    Open Carry: About 85% - everywhere except when I am in school or anything church related but those two things do take a lot of my time. I am a full time student, a part time teacher, and do a lot of church stuff.

    Conceal Carry in church. 5%

    Unarmed cause of retarded PFZ in school: 10%

    Before I got hurt, I OCed everyday at work. I think if I didn't they might fire me. LOL Also CC, pocket, and ankle.
