    Experiences/Stories While Carrying

    I've seen a few posts in the forums here and there about experiences they've had while OCing or just CC'ing. I didn't see a thread dedicated to this and I thought it would be fun to hear some of the things that have happened to people while armed. Did someone lecture you? Did you have a good/bad encounter with LEO? Maybe someone just walked up and thanked you for being responsible enough to carry.

    I'll go first. I did mention this the other day as I've just starting OC'ing. I was hiking with my girlfriend at Wallace Falls last weekend when all of a sudden I heard a thud. I looked on the ground behind me and saw my loaded magazine sitting in the dirt. I must have hit the mag release when adjusting my holster ealier. Not only was I super embarassed, but I was damn lucky that someone else on the trail didn't notice it. I'll make sure to never make that mistake again and to get a better holster!

    Belated welcome to the forum bebop, but technically this whole state thread is the story thread, post your stories. Some have started local ones so that people who browse can see that OC is normal in their area, or it's a good way to find out whats going on in that area.

    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
