    Wife drug me to Winco in Moore today to pick up a few things and it was the first time (maybe I'm just not all that observant) I've seen someone open carry......the fella was carrying a stainless 1911 in a drop down black leather holster that hung just under the bottom of his Carhartt jacket.

    He was getting some looks and I realize he was legal and if that's what he wants to do more power to him.....but for me I just prefer concealed.

    Newsflash. It's okay to open carry. No really it's o-k-a-y.

    But only if carrying a 1911 cocked and locked in a Fobus holster. Pearl handled grips and 4 spare mags a plus.
