    First welcome to OCDO. You are new PLEASE study the laws and the threads here, and have a thick skin. On your video some of the things you mentioned like the rules for buildings were inaccurate, and you said it was "fun". A gun whether concealed, or carried openly is not for "fun". When we go to Capitol Forest to shoot it is for fun, when we carry it is not for fun. Please come to some of our coffee or shooting outings for more discussion. Carry safe!

    Why not for fun? Do you enjoy OC'ing, then it is fun....just saying....

    I enjoy the conversations they start, educating others who ask, the exercise of fundamental right is empowering which can be "fun", it is fun exercising my right of freedom of expression and OC is a great way of doing that....

    ....just another point of view...why should we judge what people find as fun...as long as it is legal and not causing harm?

    Welcome Knowledge! I'm just east of you over in Lake Stevens. Hope to see you at a meet or around town.

    @SVG: I can see where golddigger is coming from. Being "fun" makes it seem like it's something non-chalant like whether I'm going to go to Ivar's or Red Lobster for lunch...or what color shirt I'm going to wear......not that I'm choosing to carry a tool that has the capability to end someone's life. AND that I'm carrying in a manner that makes it easier for someone with ill will to attempt to disarm me if I'm not paying attention (I don't think it's a huge threat, but I do think it's a good idea to have a plan B before you start OCing). That said, it can be fun too...and I'll be honest, it's amusing sometimes to see people's eyes bugout (even though I try and dress nice and be a good example). BUT, fun is definitely a secondary issue...definitely far behind raising awareness/normalizing open carry. I carry a gun because it is effective at stopping someone that is going to do me harm, not because this is a dk-measuring contest and open carry is more macho than concealed carry. ***By the way, not saying this is why you're carrying "Knowledge"***

    When I OC, I feel it's more "Interesting" To carry classic, but still effective, Handguns than newer "Plain" Handguns.

    Thanks everyone for the support. I was ambiguous with the legalese and see how inaccuracies may have been interpreted, yet in both the video and description I tried to make it clear that it was very general. I even ended saying that if you are going to OC you need to look up the restrictions and what not. I can confidently walk outside with my firearm knowing that I know the "restrictions". As far as the private property stipulations I can only assume you haven't seen business post signs about guns. I've seen plenty to know they exist and was just bringing it to the viewers attention. And it is fun, it's not dancing around with a deadly weapon, but it is doing something out of the seemingly ordinary, which makes it fun for me. As long as I walk outside and people react out of curiosity or shock it will remain fun. I don't like football, it's not fun to me, but I'm not gonna tell someone that it's not fun because it's not fun to me. Oh and in the video I didn't say you had to remove the ammo from the clip its self. I'm not here to debate the law either.
    Peace

    I'll be trying to maintain a vlog of my OC's so you all can judge me; I mean watch them.

    Not trying to offend you but the fact that it's fun to you and the whole video log makes it seem like you don't take it seriously and you're just looking for attention

    I know where you guys are coming from...I just don't take life that seriously. Too me being nonchalant is part of normalizing.

    When SkyisFalling did his first OC it was at a TeaParty stump speach for local candidates, (I also spoke) the Sheriff Mr. Elfo came over and shook my hand and then shook Sky's hand, it came out it was his first time and he was a little nervous about law enforcement....the Sheriff's own words were "we view it as another article of clothing you put on before you leave the house" so it can pretty much be like choosing what color of shirt to wear, should I carry my Smith and Wesson or should I carry my Glock.....

    Until carrying a gun is normal again in society, we'll all get attention from it. I noticed a few other threads broken-up by county or city or whatever eg. eastern & western WA OC Report. They're all doing the same thing I am, except I'm doing mine in video. I haven't come across anyone harking on the original poster about OCing. I didn't join the forum to be ridiculed I joined to show support, get support and hopefully do some meet ups. If my intentions have been misplaced then I'll go, but if not, then lighten up people! I didn't come here to explain myself so if you respond negatively, I'm just going to ignore you.

    Peace

    welcome to the forum. north or south Everett? the only things I will say about your video are that it is great you want to show and teach people about your OCing, just make sure if you are teaching that you give 100% correct info as your teachings may be watched by less knowing. Also everything you post can be used against you if you ever have to use your gun in self defense. Not trying to be negative to you, just my thoughts. Also welcome to the M&P family!


    Be safe, know your law, know your surroundings, and know your gun.

    Don't let people on here get under your skin. most will help and comment, some will point out what they think, and others just don't play well with others. all in all it is good practice for when you are out dealing with the public while OCing.

    Knowledge or lack there of, in the video you presented offering legal advice is inaccurate and falls far short even though you state that pretty much covers it.
    Adding misinformation to more is not a good thing as in replies above one cannot place a loaded gun into a vehicle with out possessing a CPL as seen here,
    RCW 9.41.050 Carrying firearms.
    (1)(a) Except in the person's place of abode or fixed place of business, a person shall not carry a pistol concealed on his or her person without a license to carry a concealed pistol.
    (b) Every licensee shall have his or her concealed pistol license in his or her immediate possession at all times that he or she is required by this section to have a concealed pistol license and shall display the same upon demand to any police officer or to any other person when and if required by law to do so. Any violation of this subsection (1)(b) shall be a class 1 civil infraction under chapter 7.80 RCW and shall be punished accordingly pursuant to chapter 7.80 RCW and the infraction rules for courts of limited jurisdiction.
    (2)(a) A person shall not carry or place a loaded pistol in any vehicle unless the person has a license to carry a concealed pistol and: (i) The pistol is on the licensee's person, (ii) the licensee is within the vehicle at all times that the pistol is there, or (iii) the licensee is away from the vehicle and the pistol is locked within the vehicle and concealed from view from outside the vehicle.
    Well now look at here, there is an exception to that as well

    Exceptions to restrictions on carrying firearms.
    The provisions of RCW 9.41.050 shall not apply to:

    (1) Marshals, sheriffs, prison or jail wardens or their deputies, correctional personnel and community corrections officers as long as they are employed as such who have completed government-sponsored law enforcement firearms training and have been subject to a check through the national instant criminal background check system or an equivalent background check within the past five years, or other law enforcement officers of this state or another state. Correctional personnel and community corrections officers seeking the waiver provided for by this section are required to pay for any background check that is needed in order to exercise the waiver;
    (2) Members of the armed forces of the United States or of the national guard or organized reserves, when on duty;
    (3) Officers or employees of the United States duly authorized to carry a concealed pistol;
    (4) Any person engaged in the business of manufacturing, repairing, or dealing in firearms, or the agent or representative of the person, if possessing, using, or carrying a pistol in the usual or ordinary course of the business;
    (5) Regularly enrolled members of any organization duly authorized to purchase or receive pistols from the United States or from this state;

    (8) Any person engaging in a lawful outdoor recreational activity such as hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, or horseback riding, only if, considering all of the attendant circumstances, including but not limited to whether the person has a valid hunting or fishing license, it is reasonable to conclude that the person is participating in lawful outdoor activities or is traveling to or from a legitimate outdoor recreation area;

    (b) Cities, towns, and counties may restrict the location of a business selling firearms to not less than five hundred feet from primary or secondary school grounds, if the business has a storefront, has hours during which it is open for business, and posts advertisements or signs observable to passersby that firearms are available for sale. A business selling firearms that exists as of the date a restriction is enacted under this subsection (3)(b) shall be grandfathered according to existing law.

    (5) "Participate" means to knowingly provide or deliver to the festival site supplies, materials, food, lumber, beverages, sound equipment, generators, or musical entertainment and/or to attend a music festival.

    RCW 70.108.150

    I'm in the heart of Everett right off Broadway. I'll write a script next time I explain the laws or I'll just tell them to read them themselves. I like that "everything you post can be used against" apparently that's the case. Thanks, I saved up for awhile when it came to buying my first gun, this is my first gun, I held all of them at Adventure Sports in Lynnwood. The M&P fit just right. I don't drink coffee or eat meat so I was thinking of organizing a meet-up here in Everett that would accommodate everyone including myself. I'll be at the range today, up in Arlington, it's lady's night so I'm going with a couple of my female friends. between 3 and 5. nice to meet you waterfowl woody.

    I'm not a cop, but I'm demanding to see your ID.

    I think they mistakenly put an 'M' where the 'F' should have been..

    I went ahead and edited the video, removed the "legal" content. I'll just do it that way from now on.

Thanks, I saved up for awhile when it came to buying my first gun, this is my first gun, I held all of them at Adventure Sports in Lynnwood. The M&P fit just right. I don't drink coffee or eat meat so I was thinking of organizing a meet-up here in Everett that would accommodate everyone including myself. I'll be at the range today, up in Arlington, it's lady's night so I'm going with a couple of my female friends. between 3 and 5. nice to meet you waterfowl woody.
    When you are talking about the range in Arlington. Are you referring to Norpoint on 172nd? If so That range is 5 minutes from my house. I shoot there all the time. let me know next time you go up there. We can grab some lunch and then go shoot as long as I'm not working.

I didn't join the forum to be ridiculed I joined to show support, get support and hopefully do some meet ups. If my intentions have been misplaced then I'll go, but if not, then lighten up people! I didn't come here to explain myself so if you respond negatively, I'm just going to ignore you.

    Peace
    Welcome to OCDO, just a note...you will need thicker skin and open mind to participate in OCDO. We don't hold back in trying to get it right. We hold each other to a high standard and expect the law to be quoted and analyzed and for those that participate to get it right. If you think that everything you do will get you a high five then you have much to learn. If you are willing to learn then you will be enlightened in ways you didn't know existed.

    Norpoint is only a 20-Minute drive from my house! But I can't go, I'm saving up for 2 new guns, and all money has to go toward those. Maybe next month I'll be able to go, and try my new guns!

    Made my way down to Seattle today to peruse around REI with my wife. OCing the whole time, of course. No negative interactions, which was great. In a different thread someone had mentioned Costco might kick you out. So, I stopped there on my way back from REI. I had to get a few things so it's not like I went there just to walk around OCing. It was the Costco behind the Everett Mall, right off highway 5. Nobody said anything, except a customer behind me in line. He said "It's dangerous just walking around with one of those." He was saying it to someone he was with. All I could think was, "Guns aren't dangerous, irresponsible people with guns are dangerous." Well that's it for today, stay safe, stay strapped.

    Glad to hear everything was a non-issue, as it should be! Get anything good at REI? Oh and if ya haven't seen it already, here's the letter that M1Gunr got back from Costco. If there was a Sam's Club closer, I'd probably just say Costco can suck it, but for now I just CC so I don't have to deal with the possibility of getting the boot/membership revoked.

    Dear Ken,


    Thank you for your email to Costco Wholesale.
    In reference to your inquiry on our policy disallowing the carrying of firearms in our warehouse stores.
    Costco does not believe that it is necessary for firearms to be brought into its warehouse stores, except in the case of authorized law enforcement officers. For the protection of all our members and employees, we feel this is a reasonable and prudent precaution to ensure a pleasant shopping experience and safe workplace. Our policy is meant to protect our members and employees in all warehouses around the world. This is not a new policy and we do not customize the policy for each individual city/county/state/country where we do business.
    Bringing a firearm into our warehouse does not enhance the shopping experience. We are sorry the message you are hearing is that we don't want you. It is the firearms that we exclude in the warehouses, not the carriers.

    Thank you,

    Susan
    Costco Wholesale Corporation

    Funny about the person behind ya saying that it's dangerous carrying that thing around...yah, for criminals maybe. But that's a good thing! (although I'm gonna take a wild guess and say that this person thinks that guns jump out of holsters on their own)
