Open carry can be used for so much good in our society. If responsible gun owners who present themselves as well adjusted and functional members of society opne carry they in a sense can become ambassadors for the gun community. I was open carrying one day while going to home depot and I was able to help two women load a big roll of carpet into their vehicle. When they saw the gun on my hip they reacted surprised and somewhat concerned. After all was said and done those two ladies had a different idea of what a gun owner is like. We have to show society how awesome us gun owners are.
