Open Carry vs. Concealed Carry in MN

Adam Scepaniak

Hello everyone! I'm the C.M.O. and Manager for The Guns and Gear Store of Rogers and Waite Park, MN. Also, I'm a Smith & Wesson Certified Armorer, Glock Certified Armorer, a guest writer for Sierra Bullets, an avid pistol shooter, reloader, and have an addiction to classic double-action Smith & Wesson and Colt revolvers. I love the challenge of hunting different game whether its elk, black bear, feral hogs, whitetail deer, or prairie dogs. What can I say? I love my firearms, the great outdoors, and I have a wonderful family to do all of this with!

  1. I personally carry concealed unless I’m hunting. How does everybody else carry?

    Concealed. Even in my own home. Many times my family doesn’t know I have it on.

  3. My wife and I plan on getting a concealed carry licences when we get back to the mainland. Its more discrete and like your argument states if there is an altercation I then have the ability to decide to use my weapon or not

    I have benn known to open carry at times. Usually on my way to or from firearm saftey class. On the first night of class I dress up in full cowboy?SASS attire. which includes two 1875 remington 44-40’s on my hips. If I happen to stop at the gas station on the way most people assume that they are just fakes. But I will tell you this. If there is a felony being commited in that gas station there will be a whole lot of smoke in the air!

    I carry concealed, on the outside of my waist band BUT under a suit/sport jacket of a regular jacket … However, if I feel the need to remove my jacket like in a restaurant or someplace because I’m too hot, I have no problem having my gun “open” on my hip … Bob Lozinski

  6. I always prefer to carry my conceal carry permit if I am carrying my piston in public place. It is essential to take conceal carry class to know all aspects of conceal carry and gun related information.

    There’s more to the “don’t make yourself a target” argument against open carry than the fact it screams “shoot me first.” Handguns are a valuable commodity to criminals and they will target somebody simply to steal their handgun. It may be risky and foolish but there’s often a reason these guys are stealing for a living rather than gainfully employed.

    Why take the risk? Even a justified homicide can be financially and emotionally ruinous especially in a blue state like Minnesota where prosecutors may have a backward view of armed citizens defending themselves in such circumstances. I’m happy to conceal carry my Glock’s in Condition 1 all day every day but don’t believe in doing anything to draw attention to myself. That includes Tacticool clothing, running my mouth and open carry.
