Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :) Please help by posting all issues here.

I moved to Tucson 3 years ago and have seen 2 maybe 3 open carriers. I moved from NJ and it's night and day literally. I've been carrying concealed sort of, it doesn't matter, since I've been here and now it's second nature. I've only had one person say something and that was when I forgot to change my shirt. 🤷‍♂️

I open carry in AZ a lot when I am down there in the winter.

Mostly positive comments. The other I try and use as educational experiences. Plus I get to hand out business cards for my firearms training business.

Moved here 3.5 years ago from Upstate NY.

I'll OC depending on where I am at. I don't need people getting grabby. And I really don't feel like getting in arguments with simpletons because they don't understand.

I generally see at least 1 person OC on every visit to the Courthouse Plaza in Presocott. We're there for one thing or another at least once a month. If there's a craft/art fair of any sort at the plaza, I'll anywhere between 3-10 OCers in the span of an hour or so.
