Hello

I'm 20 turning 21 in 2008 andlive in lexington and travel to my folks house in lincoln often, usally caring a 7 inch hunting knife (in a belt case made for it) in open view seeing how it's considered a deadly weapon. As with those who live in lexington you know it's not the safest place. I'm looking at OCing a pistol my grandfather gave me and from http://opencarry.org/the minimun age to OC is 18. With the world growing less safe each year I'm seeing it more pratical to carry the pistol with all the shootings and people getting attacked. Any advice?

P.S. I've read over many fourms here and found them very useful thank you all for the advice and Info. I'd never ask a LEO anything on this matter as they would not give you a straight yes or no without putting thier own opinion in.

Just DO it, feller!

And welcome to OCDO!

Make sure that you look neat and tidy, nothing elaborate, behave normally, practice situational awareness, and do not fiddle with your gun or holster. You should be fine.

Best wishes,

TrueBrit.
