    Concealed carry. I would rather no one know I'm carrying.

    Same. I refuse to be caught unprepared in the event of yet another mass shooting event.

    This is one of those topics that gun controllers love seeing amongst gun owners. Gun controllers never bicker about anything else other than how to take away guns. By hiding guns, it reinforces their belief that guns are scary and should not be seen and therefore need to be hidden.

    To each his own.. But most of us firearms instructors agree on concealed carry.. Don't make yourself a target unnecessarily..

    CC 99.9% of the time. Only time I'm in the open is when I'm screwing around out in the frontiers of Utah far out of the public eye cuz its way more comfy.

    Mainly because I'm running my subcompact at the grocery store, and a full size out in the boonies.

    Makes perfect sense to open carry in wilderness... Ive gotten to where my G42 is my only carry now.. Havent had a full size since it was an issued piece..

    Yeah, Other reason for the full size is having a better sight radius and barrel length vs a subcompact for the open desert if I'm not carrying a long gun. Engagement or reactionary distance certainly isn't limited around here :rofl:

    No one here is bickering either. :notsure:
    People for gun control are against either carry, so they really don't care which you prefer.
