Nope, OC just not my cup of tee. But, I promise, whoever 'they' are, I won't come looking for any trouble.

Not me. I am not against it buy the way. I just don't want anyone to know I have it. If some [censored] went down you would be taken out first.

I will not open carry, only concealed for me! I believe that the attention open carry draws will do nothing more than cause many many more businesses who previously allowed concealed carry to start posting no carry signs. The truth of the matter is that there are millions of Texans who are not gun owners and who may feel intimidated by those who carry openly, and that is their right to feel that way. All it will take is a few complaints to the management of businesses before they decide its in the best interest of all their customers to prohibit firearms. Not everyone agrees with the concept of more armed citizens is safer.

I think the open carry folks are happy they got open carry but I believe it will come at a cost of many more businesses saying no to carry in general. It's already happening, And only a matter of time before many more follow suit!

I doubt I will ever open carry unless I am in route to hunt and need to make a quick stop.

As of today I have yet to see anyone open carry and in my area I have not seen any stores add a 30.06/.07 to any stores in the Frisco area.

But I haven't been out much and not looking for a open carry

I agree sir. I am a proponent of Constitutional Carry, but it is just not worth riling up the sheeple.

Well our local Denny's has put up a non legal size 30.07 sign. Never liked the syrup or coffee so no big deal. But I expect the list of places that will allow OC to be much shorter than those that don't really soon. If so someone please tell me, what did we really gain? The ability to walk down the street with a pistol on our hip but can't go in any stores or restaurants? Somehow it seems a little hollow.

Seems like open carry takes away your tactical advantage. I will continue to conceal.

And I suspect that trend to continue. People in Texas seem to be afraid of guns now. I moved here from CA years ago to get away from certain types of people.

But they are coming here now, like locusts coming to destroy the next field......

Talk to the manager. Write a letter. Explain to them how long you and others have done business with them while carrying concealed, without any problems or issues. It could be that they only care about excluding open carry, but they got both signs, so they put them both up.
