While it may appear that I’m just kicking the hive, here is further proof to my statement that open carry simply gives criminals a chance to develop a plan of action to take your gun. Open carry may be legal; it may be protected by the Constitution; but it leaves you at a disadvantage.
Conceal your gun. It is the best way to improve your odds in a deadly force incident.
Unless you have a partner or a backup gun, carrying openly puts you at a disadvantage. Don’t do it.
