Do you wear it as a belt buckle and leave you coat open? Are you wearing a shoulder rig on TOP of your coat? How does that work? I carry concealed and if somebody asks me if im a cop then I am doing wrong.
    I'm not sure who you are asking, or what your specific question is.... but I can give you the wardrobe I use. My firearm is OWB strong side @ 2:30 position. My attire only includes a jacket when its cold, otherwise i am wearing a vest over my shirt. When it's cold and I have my jacket on I am concealed, when I get into a warmer area I go back to my standard open carry method when I take my coat off. I don't expect anyone to ask me if I am a police officer if I have my jacket on, just when I have my jacket off. This is what I believe the OP is asking.

All the positive education I have been able to give was something I never experienced as a conceal carrier. I used to be worried about what to say if I was caught concealing, luckily it never happened, it was just an added stressor. Open carrying forced me to really know my local laws and responses, and I feel much more comfortable carrying in general. My awareness and politeness have not changed, but that hasn't changed much since even before I carried in the first place. My lifestyle has changed for the better, in all aspects, that is why I decided to stick with it and not go back to CC'ing exclusively.
    Wow! That's quite inspiring. Maybe I'll try it some time? :)

    I didnt mean that states that have OC require a permit to OC, but rather require a permit to CC. If you don't have a permit... You know what, forget I said anything. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    Heh I dont mind if you want to post what you want to post. I was confused and just answered as appropriately as I could. You should keep posting so we can understand what you were getting at.

  8. Yeah, it took me a couple reads, but I figured out what you meant - and understand how it was easy to misunderstand.

    So, to recap in different words:

    Depending on how you plan on open carrying, you will have to be careful to make sure you don't accidentally conceal before you have your conceal permit.

    That makes sense. I always tuck in my button down shirts and hardly ever wear an outer jacket.

    That's what confused me. I was trying to picture you OCing in a suit. I got that from professional business attire description.

    I understand now :) I can see where you could interpret it incorrectly.
