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

Got a funny story you'll appreciate BP. I was at Rudy's about 6 months ago getting Que for The Crew and I was in line behind a mix of plain clothes and uniforms. THere was a female officer in uniform, a little overweight, and just kinda' ditty-bopping around to the music in her head. Strange chick....Anyway, I noticed all the other officers' weapons, of course, had magazines inserted, while her magazine well was empty. I quietly asked the uniformed officer in front of me, "Hey, none of my business, just curious, why are y'all all loaded and she's not?" He leans back and says quietly, "Well look at her!!" We had a good chuckle, then he explained it was just a phase in training between blue gun and loaded gun. I got the idea most of them were praying she'd wash out.

I've seen exactly zero.

I open carry whenever I'm on my motorcycle, though. For one, I prefer to have my shirts tucked in when I ride. Also, folks tend to be a whole lot more gracious and considerate of giving me my safe space when they see my .45 ACP hanging in the wind.

safe space? I can tell you 90% of people will never see your gun while riding bc they are too busy playing on their phones as they pass you.

That's laughable. Most won't even see it, and the few that do, most won't be able to tell what caliber it is.
