How many folks have you seen open carrying? I saw my second at fish shack here in Plano. Nobody freaked out.

How many have y'all seen?

I saw my first one a last month or so at Academy in Frisco, Dude looked like a total douchebag.

He kept looking around to see if people were watching him.

I've OC'd a few times since the law passed. Rarely does anyone notice, once turned into a conversation and the employees at my car wash said they were happy to have people armed around and it made them feel safer. I've seen a few people, mainly at academy or cabelas.

Main takeaway is that the sky isn't falling and nothing that the naysayers said came true.

My oil change guy open carries. I asked him what he was carrying and spoke for a few minutes about different guns, cool. Then I told him what I was carrying (concealed) and talked about that, then he went right back to changing oil. Doesn't bother me one bit.

0 and have only heard of 2 or three even in the surounding towns. You never see the long guns carryed openly in this neck of the woods ether.

I thought I saw about a dozen open-carriers at Rudy's BBQ in Waco last week, then I realized it was Wednesday and it was just the entire plain clothes officers crowd that has been eating there every Wednesday at 11:20 since they opened. I do wish they'd make them cover those horizontal holsters, though. I know it's perfectly safe, but something about having a 1911 pointed at your chest while in line for lunch just doesn't sit right. Call me crazy...

Have see one at Academy. If he has done or been to half the places he was bragging about he is one bad mofo. Sounded like he has worked for every branch of law enforcement and military in the US. My daughter said she smelled BS and I agreed.

I hate working with detectives that wear shoulder holster. Standing behind them when they draw and staring straight down the barrel with scare the chit out of you
