Well, it's not, so I am not going to worry about it. Beside, I think open carrying just makes one a target. I don't open carry even though it's permitted in Indiana.
If open carry were the norm and commonly done the rules would be different. But with things the way they are now I agree with you. I don't OC either even though it is legal.
As it is I prefer a Sig 365 or G43 for CC, but if open carry were the norm a G19 or something of similar size.
I wouldn't want to make myself a target so I'd definitely say no to Open Carry.
The premise is that everyone, or nearly everyone, is expected to be openly carrying in their daily lives. Those who ARENT are the ones who will stand out for one reason or another- and may make themselves the subject of scrutiny by either crimnals or the merely curious.
Think Renaissance Europe or Feudal Japan where the samurai and gentlemanly classes routinely carried swords, except extend the idea to the whole of the populace in modern times.
Or maybe just a full-sized Glock in .357 Sig or .40S&W. Yeah, probably that.
Im not a fan at all of open carry

I think many would come to see their openly displayed arms as status symbols, ornaments, or accessories if they didnt expect to actually need to use them- either because its a low-crime environment/neighborhood or society in general may become LESS dangerous and more polite (as Heinlein theorized).
Sorta like watches, or even jewelry. Some would wear a Rolex (Korth) and some a Seiko (Glock).....or even an antique pocket watch (1851 Navy).
And also (and I presume your point) my current woodsy/range gun, the M&P9 with RDS and WML, in a fabric-covered Safariland ALS with the cheeto guard and the shortest drop UBL, with QLS to the holster for space and when I need to remove it.
Probably a different holster or a QLS vehicle mount if I drove a lot, but I just don't.
BHP would be a good one in my book, or a classic P-series SIG. Maybe a 4" 686 or M28......
Well if that were the case I would still probably go with something that was lightweight and comfortable to carry. Maybe a Ruger SR9c, CZ P07, HK VP9, or else a Colt Commander .38 Super.
And if I ever moved out West it would have to be a single action revolver like a Ruger Blackhawk, Ruger Vaquero, or a copy of a Colt SAA, like a Beretta Stampede.
I'd want to get a Broomhandle and wear it Han Solo style.
And some days, you'd just have to have a good ol' Colt SAA Peacemaker.
