    +1 I have to agree completly. It took me awhile to OC the first time but once I did I was surprised at how much easier it was then CC.

    +1 on the congradulations part also.

    I want to so bad, but it's not a traditional open carry state. Yea I know just do it and make it happen.
    I kinda sometimes flirt with it when I have my OWB holsters on. I just have a flannel shirt, unbuttoned and sometimes hey it opens. I just don't want it to be made into an issue that would affect my keeping the license.

    I can imagine the patriots here meeting in the taverns and pubs to discuss the revolt some 240 years ago. Just walk in with a rifle and perhaps a pistol in their belts. Guns lined up along side the table. They sit down and no one looks at you like "What the hell are you doing in here with THAT?!!"

    Sigh... Perhaps someday in my lifetime.

    Peace...
    You're on the right track, 6SC, keep it up. I do much the same around here: I might carry concealed into a restaurant (you gotta wear a jacket around here most of the year, anyway), then remove my jacket. I did this recently and it took the better part of an hour before someone in our own group said "Is that a gun?". I commended them on their powers of observation (hey, it only took 'em an hour to notice), and asked if they had a problem with it. None at all, as it turns out.

    Come warm weather, I intend to OC much more. The sheep will have to live with it.

    Keep the faith, brother.

    Percocet is good. Hard not to feel angry...but...I know a lot of guys who hit the deck like you did and didn't come up in nearly as good shape...amazing that you managed to hang on to your sidearm.

    Rest up, brother.

    Takes a while to get past that though. The first few months of OC for me, I thought EVERYBODY noticed and I was nervous because of it.

    I live near Philadelphia, and I used to be afraid to OC there. Now, in the odd times where I have to go (I can't stand the place!), I have no problem OC'ing. However, my phone is ready to begin internet broadcast just in case of any legal issues. I don't mind being a test case, since I know I have the right (I have a PA LTCF).

    You OK? What happened? If I may ask? PM me if you would rather not write it in open forum or just say not open for discussion and I'll accept that.

    Peace...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    Back on track here...
    I've not openly carried yet myself. I've carried into several situations, but never had to draw and those I've had to confront never knew.

    That being said, my two experiences with someone else in a group openly carrying have been positive in my view. Nobody called the cops, nobody ran away. It was just a normal everyday experience even with someone carrying a gun around on their hip. That being said, the person is a huge guy working in security, but people didn't even bother giving him a wide berth when he was at the local dog park walking around with a gun.
