If one carries concealed he should not conduct himself as he would without a weapon. If one open carries he should not conduct himself as he does with a concealed weapon..........................................just sayin'

I only open carry when I am out hiking a certain distance. Just works better for long hauls on foot.

Otherwise i greatly prefer CC and do so everyday.  It is nobody's business but my own.

... and don't curse unless women and children aren't around?  ???

You said it, just not sure what "it" is.  Should one act less polite or aware in your three scenarios?

I don't think I'll touch that since you already are reading too much in to it.

I wasn't trying to be confrontational, I just honestly have no clue what you are saying I "should" do so differently in the 3 scenarios that you outlined.

Ah, yes.... and let us practice the first ammendment of free speech silently so as not to offend anyone, too.

Since I pretty much ALWAYS carry - I don't know if I conduct myself differently in different scenarios.  I go about my business as usual.  I don't make many waves and I do my very best to stay out of situations that require a firearm be deployed for my protection.  I don't advertise, and really don't like to "print".  I don't start anything with anyone that would ever be construed as doing so simply because I DID have a firearm with me.  When I do open carry - it's in areas where I would expect most anybody I meet would be open carrying also.

But then again, I am only a little old senior citizen - WITH FANGS.

Here in Missouri. You can open carry conceal carry without a permit. I usually carry at least partially concealed. not to concerned if skmeone sees my gun if I reach up or bend down. I've never got a second glance open carrying though. Of course down here in the Ozarks may as well be a different country than kc St Louis and Columbia.

Then articulate it that way.
To put it simply you should be on a high level of situational awareness armed or not. That's the world we live in today.

Good Lord man, we're in a gun forum not "Miss Manners". I would think you would assume we're talking about handling firearms.

 Has nothing to do with miss manners. You post some home made nonsense that only you understand and then get upset when you are the only one who understands your euphemisms.
I think we all understand how to conduct ourselves carrying or not. We are all grown ups here.
