I am stuck in California, so I cannot easily legally (under this state's un-Constitutional laws) carry.
Needless to say, I avoid conflict.
I walk around like I know where I am going, and I carry myself confidently, but not snottily.
I avoid neighborhoods where I know a 6'5" white male would not be welcome.
I drive with my windows rolled up, and stay on main populated roads.
I believe for those of you who are allowed to be armed, you should think of it the way I am forced to, imagine you are un-armed- that is probably the best way to avoid a situation where you may have to shoot.
