Post shtf: Conceal vs open carry


#1

Say there is little to no government anymore and things have fallen back to the way things were in the 1800’s. How would you carry on a daily basis after shtf?

  • Open carry -I want people to know I mean buisness
  • Conceal carry- I dont want to show my cards.
  • Dont plan on carrying

I voted open because I didn’t have an option that I totally agree with. I simply carry. The gun is on my side. If someone sees it, I don’t care. If it’s under my shirt or coat, I don’t care. If I’m printing, I don’t care. I simply carry.


#3

Thats pretty much what I meant by open carry, basically you dont give a shit about who might see it. The Concealed option means you want it hidden at all cost. I shouldve worded it better.


#4

While I chose to conceal, that really just means a small wheelgun or auto loader in my pocket. I’ll likely have a rifle slung over my shoulder open so it is sort of a moot point I suppose.


#5

You can ditch a rifle or carry it around in a bag …or guitar case. I like more of a greyman approach to things.


#6

Ar15s breakdown small enough to fit in a backpack and a 1911 might fit in a big fanny pack.


#7

Find me a guitar case to carry this around:

The wife gets the AR.

Far too many see open carry as an AR15 on your back. Thanks media. Right now I have an OWB holster which makes me open carry. In Wisconsin if I have an IWB holster in the same exact spot and can see exactly the same amount of firearm, it’s legally considered concealed. Even if your shirt is tucked in.


#9

I usually conceal, I like having the "element of surprise " I do open carry too.


#10

If it’s winter, I’m carrying OWB under a coat. if it’s summer, IWB with a t-shirt tucked under, but with a light long-sleeve over it.


#11

In a grid down type of scenario open carrying an AR15 might make more sense than it does right this second.


#12

IMO, I see little reason to carry an AR15 outside of 2A marches or other political statements. With that said, I would never tell a person to not carry one if they choose.


#14

BECAUSE IT’S AN EVIL BLACK RIFLE??? HAW HAW HAW!!! I must be butter, because I’m on a roll. ba dum ching!


#15

I don’t know about you guys, but if I’m pulling an AR, that puppy is slung front side across body.


#16

If youre patrolling your property or helping the local town patrol etc ,I could see someone wanting to carry a rifle.

If my AR15 is not black then its not evil, right? Seems racist.


#17

Duh, reading comprehension! I misread the title, post SHTF, IM GONNA BE THE FUCKIN TERMINATOR! I’ll have an ar15 or equivalent in each hand, & pistols strapped to leg & tac vest. Mad Max shit baby!!!


#18

Post-SHTF I’m open for sure with both an AR and a pistol or two. I only carry concealed now cuz… well, California, and I don’t need all the LE interactions.
But P-SHTF it’s not like I’m going to the mall or a restaurant. If I’m out and about there’s a reason.

I never intentionally let anybody know I am carrying. I do carry some places that have a sign not to but oh well. like the mall.

I didn’t read it as hide at all cost, I was thinking IWB or OWB under a slightly long shirt.
