I cc when at all possible. I am proponent of cc above everything else. And I despise the open carry guys who go out spoiling for an encounter with law enforcement. Way not cool, in my opinion.
That being said, living in a rural community, and having a job that invovles a lot of time outdoors, it is nice to be able to carry my revovler in a comfortable holster and not have to worry about taking it off when I have to run to the gas station or hardware store.
Between my work uniform, which sorta makes me look like a game warden, especially with my radio clipped to my belt, and having been raised and known around these parts for the past 25 odd years, nary an eyebrow is raised.
Especially when you think to consider that the gun I open carry is more for nuisance critter control than anything, it isn't that big of a deal.
But then again, I don't carry openly as a political statement.
