GUN I am an advocate of open carry, but when other people that open carry look like this.

    Giving up the element of surprise < *

    But if you have to open carry, look fucking respectable, for the love of fuck.

    It's the hot topic wristband and blackhawk belt that make me want to insert that cowboy hat sideways rectally.

    It's a balance. Deciding which is worth more to you... the element of surprise, or desensitizing the masses to the sight of a firearm. I open carried today, because I felt the sight of a well dressed armed male on Christmas Eve was worth losing the element of surprise in a gunfight. I think that desensitizing the masses to the sight of a respectable male or female carrying is worth the adverse glances of a few less enlightened folk. Ordinarily, I'd never give up the huge advantage of surprise in a combat situation. But, I find that as a citizen, I must weight the advantages of each situation, before I advocate them as a position.

    If I am going to rob someone, I sure as hell am not going to rob someone who is obviously carrying. With "element of surprise" also comes a higher likely hood of being a victim.

    I would much rather avoid the whole situation to begin with.

    open carry makes you a target of attention. whether that be attention to deter someone or attention to make you their target to neutralize is the question

    I will always choose to carry concealed, even though it is technically legal in MN to open carry. Unless I'm in the wilderness.
    I don't WANT people to know I have a gun on me. Mainly because this is liberal MN, but also because that is just who I am. I go about my business, not bothering other people, and not drawing attention to myself. I like it that way. I also am very consciencious about maintaining a good gun owner image. I know I shouldn't care about that aspect so much, but its important to me. I simply don't want to lose my right to carry, because of idiots that take the right too far, and ruin the image for us all. I feel I'm doing everyone a favor; myself, every other CCWer, and the unsuspecting public - gunfriendly and not.

    What it does, in reality, is make you the target of soccer moms scared out of their wits, calling the police because there's a scary man with a GUN, OMG!
    Then you get harassed by the cops, taking up time in your life, just to prove that its legit. Then it happens again. Then again. And then again.

    I don't have time for that, nor the patience.

    Thats why if you are OC'ing you need a digital tape recorder. You will have run ins with ignorant "law men"

    I think both have their benefits and their drawbacks.

    As said above me, the biggest draw back i can see is people calling the police because "there is a man with a gun"

    i do think OCing has the benefit of educating the public (although people just assume you are a LEO).

    I think there is an element of suprise with CCing, but OCing can deter crime just from the sight of the firearm. :dunno:

    Its not your job to educate the public. You'll never reach them all, and the ones you do reach will end up with an even more negative image of the whole situation.
