Oklahoma open-carry law: what to expect

Tulsa Firearms director, Dave Randle, said more people have been coming into his shop interested in getting a license to carry since open-carry passed in Oklahoma earlier this year. 

Randle doesn't think open-carry will change much for Tulsans, except people may start seeing more guns being carried on their hips. He recommends a 9 mm revolver for new gun carriers because it can easily be shot from a purse or pocket. 

With more people carrying, you do have to worry about bad guys eyeing your gun. Since it's state law to have a gun holster, Randle recommends getting a holster with a retention system. They range anywhere from 12 dollars and up. He said a good holster will have a small snap on top of it that can easily be broken by the gun owner, but not by anyone else. That way it's easy for the owner to pull out the gun, but not easy for anyone else to grab it.
