When the law states open carry or no carry.One on the hip is better then noneretired said:From a safety point of view, why would anyone carry open, even tho you are allowed to by law? Why give the bad guy the knowledge as to who is carrying? You will be the first one taken out and probably from the back. Why not carry concealed and let the bg wonder and keep yourself a little safer?
