Does anybody open carry , and why do you ?
+1 on having protection on accidental exposure...I hope that someday soon open carry will become legal in Texas. Not that i would open carry but I would sure welcome a provision that would cover printing and accidental exposure. Open carry is legal here on 'property that is under your control' such as a ranch, store, home, etc. The only place I can remember seeing open carry is at gun ranges and gun stores and on a ranch.
+1 on not wanting to advertise. The situation can quickly turn from bad to worse. The only place that I open carry is when I am at the family farm. We have a truck stand that we sell fruit and vegetables. At that point it just keeps that honest people, honest. Everywhere else CC.I don't only because I have a CCL and HR218. It's just better to not advertise if you don't have to. I would highly recommend to anyone to get a CCL even from a state with reciprocity in your state.
