On the topic of open or concealed carry. I have done both before my LE days. I prefer a non multilevel retention holster. That is the gun is held in place by friction, no locks, straps or buttons. Now, why would anyone carry in the open with my preferred holster? Would they carry in the open in any area, with any type of holster, possibly be subjected to having their gun stolen and they are injured or killed for it? I enjoy th element of surprise, more than risk of being a victim for my gun.
