Just wait my man. No sense in getting on a sh*t list right at 18. Yes, the law should be on your side, but in this era.. its not without a good legal battle in some cases.
The world isnt ending, you’re only 3 years away.. CHLs and pistols will still be around in 3 years. Depending on how young you look or present yourself.. even if the law is on your side (technically) you are just asking for more attention than what you truly want to have.
I do support open carry, Im a libertarian.. but a 18yo using an 80% work around? Its just asking for trouble. And I dont mean that in a fudd way.. I can see where you’re coming from.. but we’re in a different era and this 80% thing you’re getting at is simply going to act as a nail in the coffin if more choose to do the same.. In fact, it wont bring nearly any positive means with it should you get a lot of attention over this. Not sure if you plan on open carrying your pistol or what.. but I foresee a negative outcome here. If you were to attend a rally or OC in the woods.. no problem! But baby faced 18yo open carrying a pistol he made.. as a libertarian I celebrate that.. as a gun owner knowing this is a truly rough time politically for the 2A comminity.. I dont see positive outcomes here.
