Don't get me wrong, I would love to have something
else hanging down to my knee.
BTW, open carry didn't bother the State Trooper that was my neighbor when I was in NM. He borrowed it once, because he knew I had snake shot in it, and he didn't want to use his issue piece.
When I open carry, it may or may not be observable, depending on what I'm wearing, and what kind of work I'm doing.
I shouldn't have to worry about it, given the second amendment.
