Really.
Age
Dress
Demeanor
ATTITUDE
And I would actually enjoy talking to folks about my open carry and our laws concerning it. Educate and take the fear out of it. Or at least thats the plan.

I understand what you're saying. I've had the same experience.

It may not be that you, we, are so much unnoticed as our age, dress, demeanor, and yes, ATTITUDE, desensitizes peoples' reactions to us.

Perhaps Dave should have posted:
