i support open carry as an alternative choice, as long as it's done with discretion. but there are some that have tried to make it into a spectacle and not about exercising a right or good judgement.

I'm OC'ing all the time, except for places that post 30.07 where I will typically just hang my hat over my gun/holster.

Technically, I'm not sure if I saw a guy open carrying or not, a couple months back in a small cafe. He came waltzing in with a handgun in a holster on his side.......... but I noticed it did not have a magazine in it. Either he goofed up and forgot it; it was ejected somehow in the car seat or Barney just carries one round in his shirt pocket.
I'm retired and bored, so pay attention when I say....

In July, I noticed a man walked in the whataburger in Tomball openly carrying. No one seemed to notice but me.
I call my AR-15 Anne; she's pretty and likes to accessorize. My AK-47 is known as Frank, he won't stop no matter how dirty he is. Oh and when the gov't comes look'n for 'em, they be hid'n in the attic!

besides "an alternative choice & it's my right to do so" what possible reason would anyone feel the necessity of carrying openly anywhere but on their own property ?

ok - the folks working in a gun shop/pawn shop, but

I think it's total Bull Hockey to do so otherwise - showmanship to the nth - yeehaw, gimme some of the "Old West"

my opinion, sorry if it offends anyone (not really sorry.....)

Tango remember this from last February http://www.texasgunforum.com/index.php?topic=17937.0
when some newbie--Bill Redding from El Paso Open Carry ---got on here and turned your honest question into  some type of pi**ing match about how we all on the Texas Gun Forum with diverse opinions on Open Carry were a bunch of idiots and that he was the one with true knowledge as he was the president of Open Carry El Paso. I think he had three or four posts before Ship gave him the boot. I believe that was the last we heard from PaPa Bear also.
I read through the earlier post awhile ago and although Bill Redding, and don't forget he's the President of Open Carry El Paso, annoyed the hell out of me I look back at it now and have to laugh.
