        Happens when you confuse iron sights with irony blinders.

        Concealed is strategic.

        Open carry is an important option for ease in moving, transporting, and outdoor activities.
        Or when you briefly or accidently expose your firearm while concealed carrying. Or remove and store it even if that makes it visible.
        If you can do it then you can always sling a gun to quickly take it to the car, pull it out on the side of a public road or parking lot and load up before hiking into the woods, etc
        You can be against open carry and still find it very useful or convenient when necessary for a few minutes without violating the law.

        If you just wander in public with a gun you should expect to have people ready to shoot you.

        >expect to have people ready to shoot you for the "crime" of preserving 2A
        Happens when you import the third world en masse and adopt their "culture" of subhumanity. Not an issue in a white, high trust, and well armed society. I'm so sorry for your loss that you have allowed and encouraged.

        Open carry just seems like it'd make you be the first to get targeted if you actually did find yourself in an active shooter situation. You'd be bleeding out on the floor before you even knew there was a homicidal gunman in the area.

        So really all the CC-only gays should be encouraging OC because it means there will be a decoy to draw out the psycho, ensuring CC Anon simultaneously isn't targeted and gets a free shot on the perp to immediately eliminate the threat. Win-win.

            OCing is important for normalizing guns in the public view. Your position ultimately only helps gun grabbers when everyone should out packing in the open, so one would want to watch the ones who aren't showing.

    Generally cringe.
    >Open carrying something that's not an EDW for no reason into a random store.
    Mega cringe.

    While self-expression is fine, you are wandering around with a weapon out and it sends a flat out bad look to everyone else there.
    It's like if you see a hood rat walk into a store with an axe, or, hell, his own gun out in the open.
    Now they've got to play the "is this guy going to start shooting up the place" game, because you can look as balanced as you want, but people generally don't lug shit that big around for no reason.
    Best case is you're being an insecure prick who wants to make people uneasy or show he's 'not to be messed with', which is childish and antisocial.
    Worst case you're unhinged, and are going to use it on anyone you see to suicide by cop.

    >But CC is worse because it's still there but it's hidden. The 'danger' is still there.
    Technically, but it's a courtesy thing. Bringing any kind of weapon into a place or upto a person is going to rustle jimmies (for obvious reasons). So you keep it concealed or hidden to avoid rustling them, to present an air of normalcy, and so they don't need to worry about you. You keep your nipples, your wiener, and your gun stowed in public, unless you have good reason.

    >t.Hemagay. Used to OC anything from rapiers to Zweihandlers back in my Uni days, and the only reason I kept doing so was because; I had a reason to, and because the curiosity outweighed the average concern response.

    People do whatever the frick they want.
    I will however never open carry if I'm not involved in a security/LE activity because it just break the surprise effect against a potential threat, as you inform the assaulter that you may counter his attack. It can even motive them to attack you first in the back.

    If something escalate, you can still show you're armed to try a descalation. This still keep a surprise effect without using your gun, if that you want to do by OCing.

    But again, whatever you want to OC or not, it's your right, your pleasure.

    I think OCing is just a bad idea in general. If you’re waiting on your CCW or don’t have constitutional carry but OC is legal, I can understand why you’d OC a pistol.

    Anyone who OCs a shotgun or rifle over their shoulder or on their back isn’t doing anything illegal, but they’re a moron who’s most likely just looking for attention.

    Depends, is it a rifle or a pistol? OCing a big pistol is perfectly reasonable, I'd expect any reasonably prepared person to do such a thing. Carrying a rifle is cringe though, with the exception of people coming back from the woods it's usually done to get attention and little else. Personally I just CC, even though just about everyone knows or at least expects everyone else around here to be armed I don't OC unless I have a good reason to not CC. But at the end of the day you're your own man, make your own decisions and mistakes

      Except that an urban scholar could bop you on the back of your head and steal your AR while you're distracted by a sale on the frozen tendies at Walshart, so you'll have to pull out your backup concealed firearm and engage in an impromptu shootout to get your first gun back.

        If you’re in a police uniform, you’re an even bigger homosexual who actually does deserve to be jumped and oofed by Black folk.
        If you want to OC, dress decent, carry a nice gun in a nice leather holster, present yourself well. I know that’s hard for always-online terminal sports like you, but at least TRY.

    It depends on what you're carrying and the social scenario obviously, but mostly it's a Game Theory thing:
    • Ideally if everyone did it then there'd be no downside and some upside. Open carry is much more comfy and means you can use full size HGs, pdws etc easily. And if everyone is doing it then there's nothing strange about it nor are you any more of a target, because by definition there is nothing that stands out about it.

    •However, "defection" is encouraged: if 90% OC and you CC, then you'd likely be "low priority", which is better then "neutral priority" like before. Plus it's mildly harder to steal your weapon from you and harder to tell if you're worth trying to steal from, because can't tell if you a gucci gun or cheapshit saturday night special beater.

    •The more people who "defect" to CC, the more pressure remains on the remaining OC because now they do in fact stand out more. Social norms also change and others start to expect CC as the default, because humanity is like that, we are very very influenced by how others act.

    •This inevitably results in CC being the default outside of combat or uniform cases which override the general norm.

    There are still some civilian cases that override that too. Like a bunch of hunters having their rifles over their backs while they duck into certain stores or walk around or whatever is going to be fine basically everywhere rural with hunting. But in general "legally fine but socially weird" is the inevitable ground state.

      I'll add here that again uniformity would change it, but uniformity doesn't exist. Like in a military or police situation where everyone has a standard service arm (and uniform) then there is nothing individually special about any individual so that part fades away. But amongst the general unregulated population there are people who like $300 guns and people who like $3000 guns so it gets individual again.

      Also while I used western legal orgs in my thinking, "uniform" could apply elsewhere, a criminal gang say. The point is still that there's a meta-message, not just the message of "I have a gun" but "I'm part of a group that is confident enough to broadcast I have a gun to the world because we're that strong."

    Cringe in this case. Long guns are too bulky to be casually carried so carrying one is a bit like saying "I have come for violence". This is fine if you're out hunting or at the range but at a Subways? This isn't a Waffle House, what the hell is wrong with you?

    But open carry with just a pistol is fine.

      lol dumb take. oc with a long gun is much more reasonable then with a handgun. if carrying with a rifle or shotty and it's just an in-and-out food kinda place or gas or whatever you're just on your way somewhere and didn't want to leave it in your car. there's no choice but to "open carry" duh. it's obviously not any sort of self defense thing since you'd be so slow to get it ready and are so obvious.

      whereas with a handgun you have the choice to CC or OC, so if you OC you are very specifically choosing to do so and show it off.

            It is in some places. Nogunz crowd would like everyone to panic when they see a holster.

            The point of OCing is, in part, to demonstrate how may people carry. But the dog whistle has been trained in and some people will always shit themselves.

              dunno agree though seems kinda natural we ended up with cc being the norm. probably a few rural places oc is more common outside of law and mil and shit but live in pretty rural area with high gun ownership too and still not much oc in the village. maybe because that also means there is near zero crime so lots of us only carry innawoods or around the farm or whatever where bears and rabid animals are the issue not people.

      I think you're making anecdote into data anon. The only reason I DON'T open carry more is because I hate attention. But shoulder holster with a full size hg is by far my absolute favorite edc and it's not winter 100% of the time so I can't always have it under a vest or jacket and have to make do with something else. If like 50-60% of people even open carried and it was no big deal I'd dump IWB in a second and not look back. That's not reality so I mostly only open carry innawoods but point is I open carry specifically where I won't get attention because it's better anyway. CC is a compromise.

    Every righteous man should open carry at ALL times. The Libs MUST be Reminded.

This is how you stop taxation robbery to give money to gender surgeries and defending Ukraine's border while ours is TOTALLY Open for squatters to move in.

    It's time to remind Them who the majority is. That's why a society needs guns. Otherwise you get mass riots, looting, who knows how many hundreds dead.

    If you dress modern-western (i.e. cowboy hat, tucked in button up shirt/flannel, jeans, cowboy boots, belt, tasteful non-gaudy gunbelt), you look clean, and are VERY polite/chivalrous, you get a free pass from Karens to OC a revolver. Doesn't even have to be a SAA, just has to have wood grips (Colt, S&W, etc). It's fricking weird. I think it's because western movies firmly cemented the idea in public perception of the "local friendly cowboy" as the "good guy", and it's just a "normal" thing for them to be armed. This is also true for blue states, as long as you aren't balls deep in a city. When they see the gun, they seem to see it within the context of the outfit, and suddenly it's just an accessory - nothing to be afraid of. "Oh, it's just a cowboy."
