    Where are all the OC'ers?

    I hit the stores a couple times a week and am always looking for people carrying. In the last couple of months I have seen only one other person, an off duty county deputy, open carrying. For a while I saw someone almost every time I went out. Has the novelty worn off? Come on folks... strap 'em on and show your support. We fought too hard to not exercise the right to OC!

    I wonder the same thing. I OC every time I walk out the door except for a blazer when I go to church or the fanny pack when I exercise. I can only think of one time that I've seen another OC'er. It's too bad that more people don't take advantage of the opportunity to support the Second Amendment, and to do their part in correcting the Left's lie that gun owners are lunatics looking for an excuse to shoot someone.

    I was out this weekend OCing in both Oklahoma City and Lawton. It was my second time OCing and I had no real issues. I get a few smiles from the cashiers at Wal-Mart. I think it is good for folks to be out OCing as it shows the general populace that gun owners are just like them and are all-around good guys just going about their day. I always make sure I check for signs before entering a buildings as I respect property rights just I respect the right to carry.

    Friend of Foe

    You could go to the site Friend or Foe and look at the map to see where people frequently carry and start going there. I carry often within 5 miles of home every day. I live near 11st street and south Mingo Rd in Tulsa.

    Know what you mean. Since Nov. 1 last year, not counting the OC lunches I attended, I have only seen a handful of OC'ers. And lately it has been none in the day to day travels. Did have a negative encounter the other day, getting ready to write it up and post in a few minutes.

    LOL, yup, that's me. Are you a member of the Ponca Rifle and Pistol club? I just put an adjustable rear sight on my carry pistol and need to get out to the range and sight it in. Maybe we can hit the range together some time.

    I get to travel some, so I always check out the states I'm headed to to see if I can OC. The next couple of days, you can catch me in and around Ogden, UT, OC'ing. Got some suggestions from the locals as to what to do. That's one of the things I love about this site.

    Between the knowledge here and at http://www.handgunlaw.us I always feel confident when I travel.
