    Taste of Tacoma & OC.

    Is anyone going to the Taste of Tacoma? Anyone have prior OC experience there? Wife and I are planning to be there on Friday, trying to decide what to wear and carry. Thought it would be a nice day to take out the Vaquero .

    Hope to see some of you guys there - lemme know your thoughts.

    - It doesnt cont as a concert right? i think there was some info on this before, but damned if i can find it.

    It's supposed to be a nasty, rainy day Friday.

    A 1911 that works properly is as rare as a Glock that doesn't.

    Yesterday, OC with my Vaquero in it's loop belt. Arrived around 2:15 and stayed until about 6:30. Lots of PD but none of them mentioned it - YAY!. I did get several comments from people, including one guy who was super excited to hear that Washington was an open carry state. I suggested the site, so hopefully he checks us out. I got asked twice "Is that a real gun" and I replied both times "Wouldn't do me any good to carry a fake one now would it...". The subtle look of "ya duh, why did i ask THAT" was pleasing, and the following conversation informative and provided them some good food for thought, ended well both times. I got a few "Nice rig" comments, and a few raised eyebrows. Overall the day was pretty nice, had some Vietnamese food, and some ice cream, watched some of the bands play, and wife and I really enjoyed the animal show. It was a very nice day indeed.

    cpgrad08, how did the chat go with the "head cop" ? I'd be curious what he had to say.

    Was at The Taste for about 3 hours today. OC'ed my Colt Officer's Lightweight. Most people don't even see you. The ones that do don't seem to care. A few cops saw me. I said hi. They didn't seem to care. They weren't particularly friendly, but I can live with that. Some cops didn't seem to notice. A few people asked about it. Had friendly conversations with them.

    I should be at Freedom Fair along the waterfront in Tacoma on Wednesday. Plan on carrying my Para Ordnance P-14. It's got a sweet camo paint job so probably no one will notice it.
