Aside from simple comfort or preference there are legal issues that come with concealed only carry.
Printing, or being able to see the shape of the gun under your clothing even for only a moment when bending or stepping up, can be crime depending on the state you live in. A crime that loses you your carry permit.
If you reach up and the gun becomes exposed, even just part of the gun, that becomes brandishing.
It's not that concealed only is on its face unreasonable. It's that all the proxy legislation that comes with such a restriction is unreasonable.
You'll find that in state with open carry most still prefer to carry concealed but they have that added protection that if they print or "brandish" the law cant come down and destroy their lives over a technicality.

Well that a petty legislative issue that to me is unfair. It one thing to discretely carry a gun even if you do accidentally show and another to walk around with a AK-47 like your in the middle of bagdad.
