I open carry every day. In four years I have only had one negative experience (a lady just had to tell me how she felt). I balance that with the 25-30 positive interactions I have had. The vast majority of people either don't notice or don't care. For those who ask, give them a brief summary of the law and why you carry. Of course you don't have to do this but most of the time it helps people understand. Give open carry a try and I'm sure you will enjoy it.
