Jeff I agree there could be some disadvantages, but there are advantages too i belive that at least make it a good option. Most potential threats are going to be career criminals and as such are going to be oportunistic and will most likely pass you by in search of easier prey. If you run into someone who is just a stone cold killer or sociopath of some sort it would be a disadventage, but those things happen most of the time when you are blindsided or aren't paying enough attention to your surrondings/or have wound up in a place you shouldn't be in the first place. As with anything there will be poeple who choose to and choose not to, I personally feel it would make you less of a target in MOST situations. Just my .02jmt2566 said:I can't see many advantages to open carry but believe that there are distinct tactical DISadvantages to letting any potential threat know that I am armed. I am very much in favor of being able to do it even though I wouldn't!
I think that it is a shame that we have to "hope" that some politicians will "allow" us to do something that should already be our right.
