Saw a Open Carryer at Wal-Mart!

Open Carry is carrying a firearm unconcealed in Ohio. OC does not require a concealed handgun license, but the practice requires intimate knowledge of the law since there are places and situations where OC is prohibited but carrying concealed would be permitted. OC is also likely to attract attention. This forum is for discussion of OC, not for debating the pro's and con's or coordinating any type of protest events.

That's what I thought Chuck: Mrs. Gaptrick needs to come to Liberty Park for the Pic-a-nic.
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!

No. Not totally concealed.
It don't matter if it was.

No. Just a holstered M1911 pistol.

:D In warm weather I OC almost all the time.

This year while going into the Franklin Wal-Mart, I was stopped by the door-greeter. He requested that I stop while he checked to see if I was allowed to come in. The store manager came by and apologize and I explained that it was OK. I got to explain to the Greeter about carrying.

That is the first time I have seen someone OC. Kinda neat to see. :)

I open carry at Wal-Mart most of the time during warm weather. Subcompact 1911, wide open holster. A few positive comments, but mostly, nobody seems to care.

I can -- finally -- legally open carry starting tomorrow. :D

Although Walmart seems like a good choice, I think I'd rather start at Kroger.
