I wear a suit and tie to work everyday, on way home I will stop by the store to run an errand. I do not put my jacket back on because of the heat. So I feel this is a logical reason to OC.

I am not going to untuck my shirt just to cover it up.

Carry on.

Yes. Let me restate. No logical reason for a civilian to open carry while in town. Wife and I both open carry when we're on the ranch N of Laredo. Rattlesnakes and such.

Actually I think he would make an excellent Governor of our great State, except for the HF stuff. 😊 He knows real work and what it takes to get there, and is not afraid to excercise his rights whether folks like it or not.

I have seen 3 and the first two didn’t bother me. The last one though... Open carry at SWFA in Midlothian and he kept tapping it and looking around as if he wanted someone to say something or he was going to rob the place once a few customers left. Then not an hour later I am grabbing a drink from the gas station and in walks Willy Nilly himself tapping away on his pistol and humming away loudly as if he just scored and life was great.

I have no issue with open carry even though I don’t as I don’t want to give my position away or become the first target of opportunity. But when you do it for attention it becomes an issue and personally a safeless act in my blind eyes.

There is no reason for anyone to own a sports car designed to exceed the speed limit. No reason to own a dog bred to be a fighting breed, etc., etc.,
Personally, I PREFER concealed carry because if someone sees you have a gun on your hip you could get knocked on the noggin so they can get the gun.
BUT...I grew up in a different America. No driver's licenses, no licenses for this or that. Most land not posted. I still cannot get used to living in a regulated society. Back then a lot of towns had a gun check law. Okay to carry in the country and not in a city. That's okay. I'll leave them alone if they leave me alone.

I carry both ways. If in a crowded area I prefer concealed. In a more open area I tend to like open carry better. I do have a retention holster, but I am always watching people and never allow someone near my back when I am open carrying. No one will get within a few feet of my back when I carry open. I do train a lot in more than a few martial arts so I know I can deal with most people in empty hand skills.

I saw my first open carry at McDonalds a few days ago. No one paid him any mind, including the 4 highway patrolmen sitting a couple of tables over. No big deal.

Saw a beautiful family on a Sunday afternoon, at Braums in McKinney, shortly after the law went into effect. The man of the family had a Glock 19 in a Leather holster. My wife said, "that's cool that he's protecting his family".

The second instance was at 10:00 PM on Hwy 289. The motorcyclist next to me had his also in a leather holster with a retention strap. That was early last year.

I haven't seen another since. And I carry everyday.
