I am a proponent of open carry in a respectable and classy way. I want to get that out so I'm not mistaken of a Chipotle carrying, SKS on condition 1 type of person. Starting a thread on classy ways to properly present a firearm (in your opinion) that shows/displays the pro-2nd amendment people in a good way. I conceal for protection, I open carry for political reasons. Handguns: Don't touch unless it's coming out of holster to be used on a criminal where life is being threatened. Skip the dropleg.... Rifles: Sling it and leave it. No reason to carry it around in your hands. Muzzle direction. I was at a rally in Salem early this year and walked over to a gentleman to tell him I have watched him sweep the crowd twice and we would appreciate him not giving the Anti's something to post on their blogs. The problem is he was carrying it muzzle down, then wanted to go muzzle up and back and forth. Keep your finger away from trigger. Assume there is ALWAYS somebody wanting to use your lapse of judgement for a reason why we are irresponsible. Please and thank you are always a good thing. Open doors for strangers, be polite and maybe you shouldn't be using foul language and cussing like a sailor. You ARE representing every other carrier at that exact moment. For those who do Open Carry: What else would you add for a newcomer?
