Thread: I'm new
I've been reading these forums on my downtime at work and finally decided to join. I'd like to introduce myself, my names Chan and I feel like I'm fairly young compared to most on here. I've been concealed carrying (walther pps .40) for the past 3yrs and recently discovered that WA is in fact an open carry state. Im currently overseas but when I return stateside I might have to try OC if i can find a decent holster. If i have any questions or find myself in any situations because of my OC I hope you guys can provide me guidance.
Welcome to OCDO! Be sure to connect with us at the Federal Way coffee when you get back.
Welcome, I carry a PPS 9mm myself. There are a lot more holster options now than a few years ago.

Hej Chan, Welcome I started to OC in 1970 when I came back from Nam, good time to start. And, my record still stands..never been hasseled about my OC yet. Had a very nice friendly discussion with a Skagit Co Deputy Saturday. As to my carry, all I got from him was a compliment. (see Eastern Wa thread)
Welcome, read and understand the laws according to your state, if you don't break the laws they cannot make
a charge stick. I have not had many negative encounters,I have had many positive encounters.
Welcome to the forum and, like Gogodawgs said, please feel free to join us at the Starbucks in Federal Way on the 2nd Saturday of each month. We look forward to seeing you there!
