    OK, I know I'm new and all and I don't want to offend, but, I've certianly gotten the strong impression that members on this board really want more people to OC. Now, I think I know the reason for this, but I could be wrong, it's happened before...once. Could someone 'splain it to me?

    A good deal of the members here , myself included, believe that the more we get the public and to some degree LEO's used to seeing law abiding citizens who choose to carry a sidearm the less likely they are to feel threatened by it.

    OCing is not for everyone. People on both sides of the issue have very valid and well-articulated points.

    I personally OC for the following reasons:

    - I feel it is my right and I enjoy exercising my rights
    - It's more convenient than trying to conceal
    - I have had many positive experiences when fielding questions and view that as a chance to open peoples minds to firearms in general

    One of the reasons is that police officers use the "its not common" statement as a reason to stop and ask for a carry license even though you are doing nothing suspicious. Well if more people OC then it does become common.

    Well, I will say this... If you're going to OC, don't sling it out there in a cheap Uncle Mike's and stick your hip out there like it's a neon sign. At least put it in a secure holster (preferably a retention holster), and be mentally and physically prepared with what you're going to do to keep someone from even getting in a position to touch it.

    And sign up for Firearmz's next class forthwith.

    larz, I do not want you to do anything with which you are uncomfortable.

    I choose to openly carry for educational purposes. See GS1's post, above.

    Also, I do not believe that a civil right should be exercised only in secret.

    Openly carried firearms have been the preference in this country for more than 200 years. In fact, the majority of states (27, to be exact) still have no license requirement for openly carried pistols.

    Do you know the history of licensing open carry Georgia? If not, you should. It is far more bizarre, and sad, history than you could have imagined.

    History of the Public Gathering Clause

    History of Licensed Open Carry in Georgia

    The Racist Roots of Gun Control

    Please read these. :wink: Then make up your own mind. I will not criticize you for carrying openly or concealed.

    If you have a good open carry holster (and belt), and you feel the need to conceal, get a LOUD Hawiian shirt or two. I found some at KMart for $13 that work great. Also Burlington Coat (Roswell Rd just east of 41) has a limited selection.

    BTW, I was OC'ing when I bought mine at KMart and Burlington. Not the first raised eyebrow (that I could hear).

    I presume the garish Hawaiian print is for shape breakup?

    Yes. They're light weight, wrinkle resitant.

    Plus I look so damn cool in 'em. Kind of like an older, more used up Glen Campbell. (Figured I'd better say it before some of the kind souls around here said it first.)

    Depends, I have seen some so loud that to look at the garment long enough to notice any firearm printing means suffering permanent retinal damage.
