Re: Why Do We Carry Conceald?
When I lived in Wyoming it was common to see folks open carrying. At first I would say to myself, "WOW! These people really stand out from the crowd and the hair on the back of my neck would raise!" I soon became accustomed to it and would not pay that much attention and just except it. I even got with the program and installed a rifle rack in the back window of my pick-up that was very common to do. I just figured that if trouble came at me in any form. I wanted to be around these folks that were carrying and I felt safer in their presence.
I would give these "healed" folks a little more respect and give way to them. 'Course, I never went healed myself, but, even when I was around a cop and saw the iron on his hip. They would just naturally be the one in authority. The badge and uniform didn't amount to as much, But it was the open carried gun that registered the most in my mind.
