So, I'm a gun nut. I'm not militant or anything, but I love my gun (my 21st birthday present) and I got a holster for Christmas. I live in a state where open carrying a firearm is legal in all but government buildings, though of course I would leave private property if asked. Note: this gun will be loaded.
So, I plan on open carrying every chance I get. My close friends know this, and out of respect for the two who are uncomfortable with the presence of a firearm, I plan to leave my gun in my car. But for people I don't know as well, or who I haven't seen in awhile, should I inform them about my gun and my prediliction for open carrying it before visiting? Or would it be rude to walk in and wait to see if anyone comments? My sweetheart OC's almost everywhere he goes, and most people barely even notice it. I've just been wondering this since I unwrapped my holster this morning.
