    Talking Open carried in PA over Christmas

    I took a trip from my home in FL to Pittsburgh PA to visit family and friends for Christmas.
    While I was there, I open carried all over the city without incident. I was expecting to get some attention from the law, but there was not one single problem. I carried in rest areas, diners, and even a bank to cash a check. Nobody freaked out and I met no LE at all.
    I can't wait for FL to reinstate open carry

    Isn't it amazing how none of the things that anti-OC diehards say would happen never does? There wasn't soccer moms freaking out, or if they did, 911 ignored them, criminals didn't shoot you first because they saw your gun. 95% of the public probably did not even notice your gun.

    Probably the biggest incident you might face would be the concealed carriers who would berate you for your method of carry. No one else seems to care, has been my experience.

    While many claim to support the right, precious few support the practice.
