    I have another method. I look for my name.

    OWB @4 O'clock; arthritis in my right shoulder may force me to switch to cross-draw, also OWB. :uhoh:

    Texas doesn't permit open carry - yet.

    I voted concealed however, as far as I know NC allows open carry but you never see it and I can just hear the whispers and comments if anyone carried in that fashion. So carry concealed and just keep down the stares and comments.

    I really enjoy open carry. So much easier not having to try and cover something up.

    That being said, I *have* to conceal most of the time just because I'm tired of the looks and having to answer questions. I'm not much of a people person.

    Even if Texas ever becomes an open carry state, I still plan on keeping mine concealed. For me personally, there is no reason to let anyone know you're carrying until there is a really good reason.

    On the flip side, my job requires open carry, but this post is about preference.

    Generally I conceal when I'm in a new area. Around my home and such, I open carry. On road trips inside the state, I open carry.

    NC resident but work a lot in SC.
    In NC, IWB/OWB concealed but no big deal if it shows or prints.
    In SC only option is concealed, so IWB, or anywhere with P3AT.

    Given my druthers, OWB 4 o'clock and giving a crap whether or not it shows.

    Blatant exposure OC isn't for me though (too much crap to deal with).

    I'd prefer to open carry 24/7 for a number of reasons if I could, but I have to put up with anti-gun policies about 80% of my waking hours. Open carry is also very uncomfortable for me, because nobody makes 30x36" pants, so I need at least one gun in my pants to get them even close to fitting, but I'll always carry >1 guns, so it'll likely always be either concealed, or a combination of both.

    I voted concealed carry.
    I don't want the added attention...and I want the element of surprise in a self defense situation.

    If I were a hunter, I'd of voted both, depending on the situation.

    Other than exercise in hot weather, I carry every day, usually IWB. If I need to disarm frequently, I carry a 2" .38 in a pocket holster.

    I don't open carry, but don't object to others doing it. I also get very offended when those who lawfully open carry are harassed.

    The only time I open carry is while hunting or hiking into the backcountry.
