As I was going through the checkout three local LEO's walked in and an elderly Black Woman pointed in my direction. The LEO's asked to speak to me outside. After hearing the elderly Black Womans reason for calling 911, I couldn't fault her intentions. Several years prior to this a grocery store with the same chain was held up in Raleigh, NC, serveral employee's were killed, her Son was one of them. All three LEO's were business like, but knowledgable of the Law governing NC OC and let me go... I've never OC'ed since... I do CC everyday though!
    Exactly why I don't open carry except when out in the boonies. There are just TOO many busybodies in the world today and, frankly, I just don't want to expend the time to "explain myself" to LEOs summoned in response to MWAG calls from panicked (or malicious) busybodies.

    An idiot with a cell phone is much more likely to upset your daily program than is a potential incident with a BG. Sometimes ya just go with the probabilities and act accordingly.

    The purpose of the poll is to determine what people would prefer IF both options were available to them. Some already have both but most don't.

    Precisely what I've been saying for quite a while now. I figure I'm about 1000 times more likely to encounter a Nervous Nellie, a malicious anti-gunner, or an ignorant LEO than I am an armed robber.

    And some of us don't mind providing an example and education to those folks. I've had a lot of very pleasant conversations with people who have asked about the gun. I've only had two very negative encounters, one with police in response to a MWAG call, and the other was with an arrogant concealed carry only guy. He looked down his nose at me and said, "I carry mine concealed." I replied, "You aren't very good at it." "Good at what?" "Concealing. I know you have a gun."

    We agree!!!!! I am 1000 times more likely to have the opportunity to talk with people about what I love. The education of firearms and laws to those 1000 people is a lot more important to me than the hassle.

    I think what they were saying had to do with some of the posts that started, "in the state I live in, only ___ is allowed." Then voted based on the new circumstances they brought into the poll, instead of just using your circumstances.

    I OC because I want the bad guy to go the other way, and pick on someone else.
