    Wear your weapon openly on your hip. Stand in such a way that even a deaf dumb and blind man can see you are armed. It does not have to be brandished in order for a smart dude to understand that your firearm may speak louder than any threat they may present. The pistol isn't meant to intimidate but simply explains the balance of power. Therefore most malcontents will know their position in life without you having to lift a finger or utter a threat.

You would need to leave if asked to do so. Whereas if you were concealed, they wouldn't know. And without a sign, you'd be fine.
    I've yet to been asked to leave any place I OC in here in NC. As for CC, they never see it and just don't know.......

    Exactly, my wife has to ask if I am carrying, as I have to ask her. Concealed is concealed.

    You guys shouldn't have to ask. You should just know each other are ALWAYS carrying. ;)

    You might get taken to court, but being able to articulate what you were thinking will effect the verdict. Zimmerman almost shot himself in the foot on Hannity when he was inarticulate (the "skipping" comment), and that may still bite him in the a$$ in a civil suit or civil rights case.
    VERY good wording, if you ever found yourself in that situation. It's all about thw wording. Self defense insurance is always a good idea. Even if your cleared of criminal charges the civil stuff can destroy you.
