I concealed carry for my protection and to not raise a whole lot of attention. I have seen many videos on youtube of guys open carrying a pistol or even rifles such as an AK. They always get the cops called on them and even though they are following the law and doing everything correctly, they raise alot of attention from other people driving down the street. It makes other people who may not be aware of the law very uneasy, plus when are you ever going to need an assault rifle when walking down the road. It just blows my mind that people can be so ignorant. I'm not out for the attention, I'm out for protection there for I conceal carry. I will admit that when I am on my own property or even my parents property I will open carry just because it is more comfortable and convenient. My neighbors don't have a problem with it and it doesn't draw any unwanted attention. As far as taking my dog for a late night walk or running errands, I conceal carry.
