HKfan9...your comments are very well put...and fit my thoughts to a tee. I've edited in bold to add my own caveat.
"Only in the woods.. in the civil world I cover it up.... I think open carry is a double edged sword...Some who open carry do so for the wrong reasons (to look and act macho). The last thing any of us need is macho man wiz bang running around with a Glock on his hip in an open top holster infront of all the Anti's."
Best Regards, Rod

It proudly waves because a soldier's dying breath blows upon it.
