I had a booth today at Trader Village. About 8 AM a man came walking up with a chrome/nickel large bore single action revolver, stuck into the front pocket of his pants. When I commented 'nice gun', he pulled it out, said 'yeah', and repocketed it. Exposed from the trigger back. Then he went wandering off into the crowd. And definitely not black powder, loading gate clearly visible.
Second was another man who I saw about 50' away with a nicely holstered semi auto. Tastefully done, but early.
I did not see any more after that, I guess the police shut the idea down.

They only read part of the story. Bet quite a few will get educated before it goes into effect. LOL.

I haven't seen anyone, but have had several people ask me why I'm not carrying open. It's clear people think you can alredy open carry.

Just think how fun it will be when constitutional carry passes and the completely uneducated masses are free to indulge.

Not that it will be any more dangerous but folks will be getting tagged for violations for a while.

It's like the day after Obamacare passed. A woman weent to the Doctor to have a mole removed and was shocked when they wouldn't treat her for free.

I wouldn't carry open, you're just putting a target on your back. Lets say you're in the local 7-eleven checking out, some one walks in to rob the place, they see you and your side arm, now you're their focus. All eyes are going on you cause everyone knows your have a gun. They may just shoot you, knock you out or who knows what. I like concealed, gives that element of surprise.

You could also make yourself a target by appearing defenseless.

Mmmmm, nope. You are just going to prevent that 7-eleven from being robbed. Criminals aren't totally stupid, they just want a quick and easy strike. They sure don't want to get in a gunfight and maybe end up with a murder charge. They'll just reverse course and hit the 7-eleven a couple of miles down the street.
