We can carry either way here in Indiana and once in a great while I'll see someone open carry,first thing that comes to my mind is "why advertise it to the bad guys?" .

Open carry is legal in Ohio, and while I do conceal carry, I would never open carry. The reason is simple: I couldn't walk three blocks before a dozen squad cars would surround me and tell me to hit the dirt. I'd be handcuffed, hauled off to jail, searched, and my profile checked. Yes, having found nothing to hold me on or charge me with, they would release me within the mandatory 24 hours. If I again tried to repeat my open carry, the same thing would happen.
So I carry concealed and I am not harassed. It should not be this way, but it is the reality of the situation.

Carry how you want
I support the right to open carry but for me personally I conceal. My reason is why do I want the bad guy to be able to see I have a gun and take me out first? Or target me to take my gun? The bad guy is almost always going to have the advantage as he knows he is going to cause trouble, you don't.

I support the right to open carry if one chooses.
I also support the right to choose whether or not to wear a helmet.
I choose to wear one, yet ride with many friends who don't. I support their right to make that choice.
With that said, I typically conceal carry, with the exeption of rare occasions on which I feel open carry is beneficial. That's my choice.
There are many arguments for and against open carry. Most of them make sense.
The bottom line for me is this: "As long as the bad guys don't open carry, neither will I".

Pretty simple, The Bill of Rights states "Shall Not be Infringed!"
I support the right to carry any danged way you please as long as you are a legal citizen of These United States!
It's called "Constitutional Carry!
For any of you left wing nut jobs that keep trying to infringe us by trying to disarm us, get over it, or get out!

I reside in Texas and its an open carry state but I have not seen any open carriers yet; me personally would rather conceal.

Virginia has Open Carry (no permit needed) and CHP (concealed handgun permit).
I agree with the majority consensus that while I totally support Open Carry, I am not to the point yet where I will feel comfortable doing it. Virginia is not Wyoming. I can see myself being followed around a store, or other public place, by cops if I were to exercise my right. I can see women fainting. Yeah, I am being overly dramatic -- but that is my thinking.
However, I think the political climate is in such sorry state that we are headed for some kind of armed conflict in the not-too-distant future. When that point arrives, I will be carrying open. I am already preparing for that day. Much bigger weapon with a lot more rounds. I also have two holsters ready to go.
Finally -- I hope to see during Trump's first four years Constitutional Carry become law and/or favorably ruled on by SCOTUS.

Idaho? Hmm, carry any dang way you want with no permit needed either way!
It's called Constitutional carry! The way our forefathers wanted it.
I think it's their way of telling Feinstein and friends Foxtrot Oscar!
They do offer an enhanced permit that is recognized by quite a few states.
The only caveat is that you must be legal to own them for this to apply.
