It's legal here, but I wouldn't do it ... attracts too much unwanted attention.

That's the way I feel. Imo you don't want people to know you're armed.

I did open carry on the Dallas Police for 32 years. Never again. My weapon is always concealed. I want the element of surprise and don't want everyone staring at my weapon. I was a big blue target for a long time.

This. Open carry automatically provokes the man with a gun call followed by a LE interaction of varying degrees of hassle. Not worth it with all the great IWB holsters out there. Im not in it to make a point.

Kansas is a open/conceal carry state. People that open carry (in my opinion) most of the time look like trailer trash people. They carry around the biggest handgun they can afford and look like an idiot doing it. I'm all for conceal carry though.

Open carry allowed but WHY? Only at range or at dinner in backyard. Somtimes if in my car but usually stowaway under shirt shirt if I get out to go anywhere. ALWAYS while hunting or trap shooting open carry though. Kansas passed but it also allow CCW. I have permit but voted on hopes more women/elderly could pack to protect children.

Only when I hunt. Nothing against, it is just not for me. I prefer to blend in, not stand out.

No, it's illegal here, besides a displayed firearm says, "Shoot me first"

Nice.My thought exactly. CCW was designed for incognito and the act of suprise/stealth.

I open carry.
It's legal in Texas.
Never been "hassled" by LE.
Don't be scared of the gawkers.
I DO want people to know I am armed.

Bad guy with gun--who is his first target? Outside of police and military, and while I respect the rights of others, it is just plain stupid to open carry today. Gun owners can receive enough undue attention without attracting more.

It was legal in Calif then some people decided to open carry to prove a point. It backfired and it is now illegal


You get what you pay for...
So keep in mind how much you paid for this advice.
