First, permit me to welcome you to our forum. It is chock full of terrific information about open carry.
That being said, you live in an excellent town where open carry is hardly noticed. You'll find with time that you make a much bigger deal out of it than anybody else. Really. That was my experience. I've carried all over the state, and to several others as well, and nobody makes a fuss about it. The only real fuss about it was my own concerns about what would happen when I started carrying. And in a word, what happened was.....
Nobody running for their lives because an armed man walked into an establishment they frequented, no hassle from cops who plainly saw me carrying my sidearm openly, no folks shrinking away as I approached,... nothing. The only fuss existed in my own imagination of what might happen. And mostly, nothing did.
Oh, I got the occassional question like "Are you a cop or something?" My answer was, and still is, "no. I'm an LAC". They get all quizzical and ask what the heck an LAC is, to which I reply "A Law Abiding Citizen, or if you prefer, a Legally Armed Carrier".
Once, on a trip out of state, out in a small store just off the interestate while still in Colorado, a woman asked me "Why you carrying a gun mister?" to which I answered "Because there are bad guys everywhere, and my aim is to discourage any miscreancy coming my way!" I don't know if that sounded satisfactory to the woman, but she let it drop at that point.
I took another newcomer out on a routine day of running errands, and we visited several places around Aurora. Nobody made any fuss about the two of us carrying our pistols in holsters on our hips. One older gentleman asked "are you detectives?". I answered with my usual LAC line. Once I got around to explaining that open carry is legal in Colorado, he seemed content that we were okay.
Now I'd like to make you a similar offer to what I did for my friend in Aurora. I'm going down to Colorado Springs to host a "Meet and Greet" on Tuesday, the 28th at 6:30pm. We're going to assemble at Famous Dave's for chow and chat. You're certainly welcome to join us. We'll all be carrying open, so you can see how things are by joining up with us. I'm hoping we get maybe a dozen folks to show up and all will be openly carrying. But before that gathering starts, I could come along earlier and we could run around Colorado Springs and visit a few places so you can see how things are. I always open carry. All the time, wherever I go, with the possible exception of Denver. Even then I sometimes let it show!
So there's a few slices of insight for your consideration.
Again, welcome to the forum, and I'd be delighted if you'd join us at the Meet and Greet on Tuesday!
