I feel like, if you could call all responsible gun owners a community, that the advantage lies in concealed carry. When bad guys know there are a million (???) of us out there, they donít know who they can target.

If you have your .45 strapped to your hip, you protect yourself, and likely the people right around you, through deterrence, (amen, and more power to you), but you donít do as much to help the cause, and you alienate snowflakes at the same time. ( I am not defending snowflakes.)

Iím not against open carry by any means, but I feel like the more we conceal it, while we publicly grow our ranks, it sets criminals back on their heels a bit.

Hello All,
I think Conceal Carry and Open Carry are both good as each serves a purpose.

Open carry is good because it makes it common place and helps remove the stigma or fear of such. Conceal carry is also good because a criminal has no idea who may take him out.

I conceal carry because I do not want to bring attention to myself and family but I appreciate those who open carry.

God Bless,
Ralph

This is how most "should" think. I appreciate this.

It's always been my contention that unless you run into a mob of ISIS looking for trouble the bad guy is likely to see someone armed and go look for an easier target. I just don't want the paranoid lady calling the cops on me when I'm out doing my job.
After the first few lines I saw that you agree with mas ayoob on open carry so I stopped reading.
Most everything he says is OC bad and trigger jobs will get you arrested.
That was the reason for my post.
