I have a CHL and went to a lot of trouble to get it. Being an ex-police officer, I believe an open carry would not be a good idea. I believe in the public (for example, a restaurant), everyone would be more concerned with what the person carrying a gun was up to rather than what they were doing themselves.

I have a CHL also. I kinda like the idea of the bad guys not knowing who is carrying and who is not. I know there are several states that have open carry, and I don't think I'd necessarily oppose it here, but at the same time I'd still carry concealed. I think it'd freak me out getting the looks I'd get and attracting attention I don't want. I'm prior military and am well trained in weapon retention, among other things, so there's very little chance of some thug being able to take it from me but I'd still rather conceal it.

Whether or not it is a good idea. I think the question we should be asking is does the Gov't really have the right to tell me that I can not open carry? I would not personally choose to carry open or concealed but i believe that I should have the right to decide. Big brother has no business deciding who can and can't have/carry a gun. that is the idea behind the 2nd amendment.

In Arizona, they have "free" open carry and "licensed" concealed carry.

Not a lot of muggings there.
