    i conceal carry, never saw the point of open carrying.

    i'd rather not have everyone know that i have a gun on me.
    the element of surprised is underrated.

    From what I see, people do it because they can. and because it's an opportunity to educate. I'm pretty sure that I'll do it maybe once, and the rest of the time i'll CC

    I'm embarassed that I was in AZ for 5 weeks and didn't OC once while I was there. I kept intending to but never actually did it. Been in TX too long I guess. :hs:

    There are benefits and drawbacks to both

    Sure, you might have the element of surprise.

    But with OCing, you might just flat out deter becoming a criminal.

    I see no "one is better" argument, do whatever is comfortable.

    More people should OC.
