    I carry my gun in a holster on my belt. If my gun is in someone's face, than that is an interesting situation indeed.

    Default Open carry

    If the bad guys know you have a gun they are going to shoot you first. So go a head and open carry I'll shoot at the bad guys as they are shooting at you.

    This troll deserves two trolling posters.

    I live in Washington, we do not have no gun signs on our stores and there are dozens of open carriers in my city. Nothing but positive reactions here. :-)

    I live in Pennsylvania and I occasionally see folks open-carry a firearm. I open-carry everywhere, and have been for almost 3 years. I am not the only one. In fact, Saturday evening more than a dozen of us are getting together at a cafe that is locally owned. They have made it clear that they support open carry, and we will support their business.

    I have never encountered a business that doesn't welcome, or at least accept, open-carry, and they say it is because they want to be consistent with state laws.

    If you prefer, you can continue to post your baseless hysterical fears, or, you could remove your head from the sand and find out for yourself that you've been lied to, and you have fallen for it, hook, line and sinker.

    I have never had an encounter that was even remotely negative, including a pleasant chat with a Sergeant of the York City PD, and a Officer of York Area Regional PD. To the contrary, I frequently have encounters with people who express profound support for the 2nd Amendment and all it's forms of carry. This is the only type of encounter I have ever had.

    But you wouldn't know anything about that, would you? No, you would rather spread the old lies and myths based on absolutely nothing, fostering Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (F.U.D.) while claiming to be a supporter of the 2nd Amendment yourself.

    Here's a clue: If you do not support the practice, then you do not support the right. You yourself do not have to open carry, but you can surely cut the crap. Those of us who know better are weary of your whining.
    While many claim to support the right, precious few support the practice.

    I live in Washington as well, and have had the exact same experience. We had a gas station/ convenient store and I had regular customer's ask what was store policy on open carry. I said policy is " No Need to Hide, What's on Your Side; Brandish That Firearm With Pride!"

    Waaa! Waaa! My dog's bigger than your dog! For crying out loud people! Opinions are like butt holes. Everyone has one but it may not be what everyone wants to see. ANd everyone is entitled to their own, but chastising anyone for their method of carry is just plain stupid.

    I have an opinion and I will share if I want. But to beat the dead horse with the crock that one way is better than the other is just so much mental mastrubation and an exercise in futility.

    We have all choosen the way we want to carry for several considerations, including state laws, personal levels of comfort, the neighbors we keep and the list goes on and on. So If I choose to carry my firearm in a pink belly pack that boldly state "gun inside" in purple embroidery, so be it. It's my choice and not yours! And being that I'm way over here and you're way over there, I'm in no position to affect your carry and the same goes for you.

    If you want to convey positive information that you think I may find interesting, well then thank you. But if you're going to beat me up and tell me my way is the wrong way, well then just shove it! No better way to convince me I'm right that to try to forcefully convince me I'm wrong.

    So ther! Btthhh!
