  •  And it's legal in most places... (4+ / 0-)

    Open carry is technically legal in most states... but not in practice. Walking through the mall with a revolver on your hip, in many states, will get you a face-to-face meeting with the pavement, as the local police stand on the back of your neck. The reaction may be wrong, but it happens... and open carry is not worth the risk, IMHO.

    There is a small "open carry" movement, whose members (with a much greater appetite for legal confrontations than I) carry, hoping to provoke a response. That's exactly the opposite of my reason for carrying, and why my guns will always be concealed.
