    Interesting open carry experience.

    I went into Robbins RV near Idabel Friday week ago. A customer at the parts counter said, "You know I'm a LEO and you're the first person I've seen carrying open since the law passed, and I want to thank you for supporting the 2nd Amendment."

    I thought that was really nice.

    I would have said, "Hey! I'm a Capricorn, great to meet you!"

    I'm a Gemini. Not that I put much stock into it though.

    I would have said "I'm glad you aren't throwing me on the ground with your gun drawn calling for backup like the media and Anties said you would".

    I don't get all the hostility towards the cop when he did nothing to reveal himself as a thug. Especially given that he appeared to be supportive of the OP OCing and his support of the 2A.

    Ak, am I missing something here? I don't see any hostility. I do believe BB was being facetious.

    Being facetious/sarcastic doesn't translate very well over text typically unless a specific different color font is used. Typically pink/purple are the colors used for such things, but I don't ever see such things used here. As such BB's and the capricorn comments came across more as smart@$$ remarks due to the other person being a cop, but that was just how they came across to me via teh interwebz.

    You are correct as I WAS just making a joke. Would I actually say that if I was in that situation, probably not but if the conversation then maybe as a side joke.

    Talking

    I'm glad to see a fellow McCurtain County resident open carry, and have a good response. I'm about to start open carrying myself.

    Great experience, I have been carrying for some months and have not had any encounters with a LEO. My belief that Tulsa and Broken Arrow are pretty laid back and don't throw you to the ground just because you have a legally open or concealed handgun.
