Depending upon where you live the practice of open carrying may or may not be legal. Always make sure you understand the laws before carry openly or concealed. Some states like Ohio allow open carry without a license, in Tennessee you need a license, and in Florida it’s illegal completely. Laws do change also so always double check.
Most talk these days is around Concealed Carry since all states have a licensing process for it but you need to be informed on the reasons for open carry.
