Generally speaking, concealed carry is better, but there might be times you’d want to open carry. Plus it would keep you from getting in trouble for accidentally printing or exposing your sidearm.

Printing is one reason. But I would like to be able to get up in the morning, put on my pants, drop my pocketknife and real silver dollar in my pocket and strap on my firearm before putting on my fuzzy bunny slippers and going to make coffee.

And not worry about it for the rest of the day.

I'm fortunate that the local constabulary sorta expects to see me with a firearm, and are cool with that... but Texas needs this law.

If Dewhurst or Straus block it.... that will be more of a political problem for them than they already expect.

I so want rid of the squishy GOP-E in Texas.

This is the best reason for open carry. I wouldn’t want to do open carry in public, but I would like to see concealed carry laws changed to where you are only expected to cover the gun so that if the bottom of the holster is visible, the gun is still covered. Pancake holsters are soooooo much more comfortable than IWBs, especially when you get into middle age!
