Some might carry exposed to make a show of it, however the majority of those who advocate OC are pretty low key and make a habit of being discrete even while openly armed.

and its not just re open carry: i can legally shoot on our property; but i do not. why? well, its this same "conceal" ownership idea. do i really want the neighborhood and/or their guests knowing what i have or do not have? am i better off not advertising the fact that i have guns? am i avoiding a possible break in to get my guns? will i be better able to defend myself if the bad guy doesn't know what he's facing if there is a break in?

i would translate to this as if OC, am i now a target by someone who wants to prove themselves to others? or do i want the element of surprise on my side?

me? i want the element of surprise....but that is me.
