Spotted someone open carrying at Walmart today in Hurricane. I didn't want to see me staring at it so I didn't get too good of a look. The holster was interesting. It was black and very slim fitting to the handgun and the holster wasn't really protruding very much from his side. At a glance I thought it was a leatherman carrying or a cell phone carrier but saw it was a gun holster lol first time I've ever seen someone OC there, or in this region tbh.

My neighbor is selling a car, and last night two gentlemen came to see it. One was OCing a Glock with a stainless slide. The other was concealing.

I had just gone over to chat with the neighbor, who is also a concealed carrier, and I was open carrying. So it was a pretty safe spot.

Perhaps this may be the correct place to post the following; Tonight I took my wife to dinner at Zupas in Jordan Landing. I had been carrying open today as the shirt I was wearing had been tucked in and I always carry outside the waistband regardless if open or concealing, and I have need of carrying where I work so I had just kept my nine on as we went out. Long and short of things, as we were leaving we heard someone behind us say, "Thanks for carrying." We thought it was a young man who was working at Zupas who we had jut passed on our way out rather, it was a stranger who was also leaving as we were. We had a polite conversation where I learned he and his wife just completed their concealed carry class and were awaiting their permits. I pointed them to this site and hopefully they will drop by and continue their education and involve themselves here.
I just wanted to express how impressed I was that this couple went out of their way to thank me for exercising my God given rights. I feel it validated mine and my wife's thoughts and concerns about carrying and made me feel even better about exercising my rights. My wife was impressed too. I feel it important to always exercise your rights and it is always nice when the public notices and is appreciative of our doing so. :thumbup:

My son and I went to the Harbor Freight in Orem this morning there was a young mom there (blonde, green t-shirt, jeans), carrying a smallish pistol in a leather holster with a top break. She appeared to be with a husband and young son, but I never swapped howdies with her.

I was open carrying as well, but I see that all time.

I walked into our bedroom this morning and saw a first time OCer. Griffin really likes his Baby Sig 1911 in the Bladetech OWB holster. He's waiting for his ULDCFP (Utah Little Dude Concealed Firearm Permit).

I'd imagine "Utah loaded" takes on a whole new connotation what with diaper duty. :ROFL:

No one should make decisions for us when it comes to guns and gun carry. If we do things we're not comfortable with because someone told us it's 'right' it becomes a distraction in an event where clarity and simplicity is needed.

I have not seen anyone O/C in Utah yet.

I have spotted several mouse guns in the Mexican carry position (small of the back) concealed.

Whenever I go to a restaurant or bar I watch the other patrons to see if I can spot the imprinting of their C/C handgun (handgun = pistols + revolvers or as R.Lee Ermey says "... a gun that you can shoot with one hand").

The advantage of O/C is that you can draw and shoot about 1/4 second faster than from C/C.

The disadvantage is that it is easier for someone else to go for your gun (gun = Old Norse "Gunilda" meaning "fire and destruction" -- also a girl's name).

I prefer C/C with my shoulder holster. Nobody can grab it from me there, under my shirt and jacket both, and I can still draw and shoot it in 1 1/2 seconds.

Thanks! :D

Cap guns, squirt guns, Nerf guns, Pop Tart guns, I think he will enjoy them all.
