    I do not see any reason why I should open carry...I like the element of surprise when the occasion calls for it. I am proud of my guns and paranoid about where I go when I go out but open carry? Naaaaahhhhhhhhhh......'Wouldn't blink an eye when I see someone OC'ing though...

    I OC'd in Carl's Jr on the way to Vegas last year. The kid behind the register must of thought I was going to rob the place... he looked REALLY nervous.

    I laughed to myself.

    It is in California. You cannot OC here with a loaded magazine in your weapon. You can carry a loaded magazine separately, which means having to insert magazine and chamber the round if needed. With a concealed carry license here, you can have a round chambered and a full magazine in your pistol, or a loaded revolver. Of course, it's nearly impossible to get a ccw in most of California's population centers. Plus - it looks like oc will soon be banned here all together.

    I agree, I believe that carying concealed gives you a slight advantage in a bad situation. Im not saying there is anything wrong with open carry if thats what you prefer, but a bad guy might target you first because he can see you have a gun.

    Now come on... be fair. Ghost Rider said, "but a bad guy MIGHT target you first because he can see you have a gun."

    Ghost Rider did not say "will", he (she?) said "might". Which is a true statement. Just because it has never happened in the past more than once in about every 10 years does not mean that it "might" not happen in the future.

    You need to re-read what i wrote. I said the bad guy MIGHT target you first if he sees that you have a gun. I never said an OC`er would be targeted.

    While I did defend your statement... I must say that the bad guy MIGHT target me first if he doesn't see that I have a gun.... so I kinda wonder about the relevence of the statement to the discussion.
