I am on the fence still about the open carry thing. I haven't really done much of it. I see both sides of it cc vs oc. I personally will judge each place I visit as I get there. For instance I was in walmart today (busy as all get outs) I choose cc because I was in a hurry and didn't want to have any unwanted attention from the three cops parked out front (assuming they was dealing with shoplifter or something like that). After things slowed down I did open carry in Taco Bell and got a postitive response from the state trooper that was also eating there. He basicly said it was nice to see people getting what is duly right to them, then asked about the firearm itself (hows it shoot, cost, model, why I chose it over a smaller caliber. Normal talk as if me and you was to meet for dinner and talk.) Since I am new that is about the extent I have really oc'ed but it seems to me to be choice imo.
