I usually carry concealed because I don't like to make people nervous but I have often thought that open carry is excercising your 2nd admendment right. Which do you prefer and why?

Is there any question? Concealed all the way. I dont want a soul to know that I have a gun. Why make yourself a target to a criminal? If I am buying a hot dog from a gas station and a guy decides to knock it over, I dont want to get involved. Open carry will make that difficult. Name one advantage to open carry? I can't think of one.

Its not a big deal in Arizona. I see at least one guy a week open carrying. Doesn't mean you will EVER see me open carry.

I can't carry concealed (not 21 yet) I leave it in my truck, unless i am somewhere that it doesn't matter much. otherwise, concealed is the best way to go.

When I get my CCW it will be concealed

I carried open in Richmond years ago. My truck lost the brakes in a bad part of town (intersection of 360 and Jeff Davis Highway for you Richmonders) and I didn't have a carry permit then. I decided to carry vs leave it in the truck. I walked to a store and used the pay phone and I was waiting for my ride and the police came by. I explained I was broke down and they were pretty cool about it. Got a lot of strange looks but I am still alive! I did feel like a target. I then got a carry permit...and the rest is history.
