Well today was another stellar day for OC in Bangor.
We returned to Burlington Coat since they were closing when we got there last night and shopped around. While SWMBO was in the changing room a guy pointed at my hip and said "I want to thank you for doing that." We had a nice chat and parted ways. He didn't carry, his wife has a CCP, but wasn't packing. They did mention that the LEOs weren't all that OC friendly so I'll have to be careful if I encounter one. I do have a couple key names to drop when needed too so it should turn out fine.
Next up was TJ Maxx & Marshal's and nobody seemed to be in the least bit concerned. I even joked with the cashier that I was a redneck fashionista since I bought shoes (sandals) to match my holster. On clearance too so a CHEAP redneck. They laughed.
So the tally today is:
Burlington Coat - Positive chat/applause
TJ Maxx & Marshals - not even a sideways glance that I saw and everyone was chill about the OC. Staff (incl. some management) was friendly and helpful.
Just another day in OC paradise.
