Open carry is a bit intimidating to the audience, and seldom the audience which needs intimidating.
I'm a fan of concealed carry.

    Here in gun crazy Texas open carry has been legal for going on a year now and I have yet to see anyone openly carrying. Like absolutely zero. Surprising to me, but that’s how it’s been.

    OTOH, it does further the aims of the gun controllers to have carry restricted to concealed carry; They can continue to have media outlets only portray open carry by police and criminals, so that on a subliminal basis a lot of people will assume only police and criminals go armed.
    That's a dynamic we need to break sooner or later.
