    The first thing I will say is congratulations on supporting gun rights by carrying a gun legally! We need all the pro help we can get. Second I would tell you that you should be 150% certain of where you can open carry and IF and HOW you must inform an officer that you are carrying if you are stopped. Lastly, I would say that I like to carry open and concealed. I would say that you should conceal carry, but if you sense that people are watching you or tailing you, take your jacket off walk with your jacket on your weak side (away from your holster). If there is a potential threat it will be exstinguished 99% of the time. Just my 2 cents. If you are in indoors, however, such as a mall, I always say conceal carry. Statistics have shown that these wackos who commit mass shootings will go for an openly armed individual, such as a police officer first. Better to stay alive with your defensive skills so that you can make your way to an exit or communicate with law enforcement.

    please send me 100$, in unmarked bills


    youre already a member in good standing!!
    you live in an open carry friendly state, and you have a permission slip to conceal!

    start reading, studying, and asking questions in the Ohio state forum.
    you will find members, and new friends in your area.
    do some OCing with others, in safe, accepting places, and get used to it, its all good!
    get a cheap voice recorder, turn it on, and carry it, EVERY time you carry out side of your house! ! !

    carry always, around your home, protect your self and your family!!!!

    joematias seems to be asking about the open carry movement, but he may really mean,
    that he wants to go to an open carry get together!

    but i dont think he really is serious, he was just another drive by troll poster.

    and to answer your PM,,, most or all seasoned open carriers will also
    advise you to carry a recorder that is turned on, at all times when out and about!

    Thank you for your reply to my PM Defender. In the state where I live, it is literally so small, that once I got my permit, I had people from different departments calling me up to congratulate me. It is so small that departments know that I carry, and if an officer sees me that doesn't know me, if I mention my name it rings a bell. I just wish that more people had this right in my state also.

    Please try the Ohio section! No blowing off going on here. It's just that you're far closer to what's up with things there than you are here on the national forums.

    Our 50 states have SO many different laws, that those of us from other states dare not try to advise you in your own state.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    Movement?

    I dunno about movements, but mine'll probably be in about a half hour. As far as open carrying. If it's an opencarry state, which Ohio is, there's probably a forum or group of folks that'll support you and help you out. As previously mentioned, check the Ohio section on this forum and link up with some folks on here.
    ‘‘Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.’’ Thomas Jefferson
