And just for the record it aint socially unacceptable everywhere. It might be where you are but that don't mean it is everywhere.
The good folk at the Waffle House serve me breakfast with nary a sideways glance that I am aware of. The good folk at AppleBees aint made nary a face either. Interestin to note that the good folk at the local gun shop asked my son to cover his up even tho the slide was locked back...
Make no mistake, I support open carry and like the option although I never do. The gun shop situation is a safety issue, not a open carry or concealed carry situation. They don't want no accidents. Their insurance I'm sure is ridiculous and would be worse with an accident.
Here in Washington, open carry is legal, we let the video commandos go 3 times now, so I guess they think we're ok. But you never hardly ever see it.
Carrying the way I do a pistol on my hip, double mag pouch on the off side I just might be able to get around without much fanfare, someone would undoubtedly call in eventually and the police have to respond. They don't have the choice or the option to just say probably video commandos and not go. Guys walking down main street with rifles slung and drop leg holsters are gonna get called on every time. That's what they want. Maybe they are anti gunners looking for fuel but I doubt it.
I have no intention of closing this thread based on the subject matter. Nor would I close it because everyone doesn't agree with me. Won't happen. I will close it based on ugly and uncivil which seems to pop up every time open carry or most politics are discussed.
