    Ted's unfriendly to OC

    Ted's pawn shop 2026 Delaware Ave.
    Norwood, Ohio 45212
    Phone: (513) 631-1246

    I went in the other day and was asked by the owner (almost sure)as soon as I got in if I was LE I said no and was then told to cover my 45 up or take it out to the car. I had a thigh rig on how do you cover that up?
    There was a Norwood cop in the store standing by the exit at the time and just said hi as I walked pass.
    Good LE bad owner.
    They wouldn't get any money from me.

    But they aren't against concealed carry? Duly noted.

    Trench coat. Just be sure it's obvious there's clothing on under it.

    Well after ORC 9.68 (statewide preemption of local gun laws) went into effect, Ted's Pawn and Gun was still enforcing Norwood city ordinances dealing with a three day waiting period, and local registration of any gun purchased. I haven't looked in for a couple years to see if they were still doing that.

    Was it possibly the thigh rig? New to open carry so I am just wondering if it is too much for people to see that kind of holster.

    My hip holster is black and looks kinda tactical and is cool looking, does that count as silly?

    Thigh rigs, well, I agree, kinda silly.

    I had the same rig on plus a AR15 at fountain square (downtown Cincinnati) and nothing was said.

    Ok, maybe it doesn't bother people. I am sure there is a "cool" factor there though.

    I suggest that you post to OFCC's "Criminal Protection Zones" topic about your findings.

    I also suggest that you drop the owner of Ted's a line letting them know that you find it hypocritical that they endorse the NRA yet disallow the RIGHT to carry (since concealed is a privilege). Make it clear that you will inform all the people you can to avoid his business because of his lack of support for the RIGHT to keep and bear arms.

    Don't pen your note as a threat, but rather as a "I'm sorry I won't be able to visit your establishment any more..." letter.

    Ted's unfriendly to OC

    Noted. I probably would not ever have gone there anyway, but this kinda cinches it. I will also make sure to spread far and wide Ted's anti-2A policy.

    (Licensed concealed carry is NOT what the 2A is about. It is about UNlicensed carry--in Ohio, that's OC.)

    The OP should give the link to this thread to Ted.

    Actually, lots of things were said...just none of them where you could hear them!

    I'm sad that all I had that day to OC was an LCP. I was WAY underdressed!

    The act of open carry, in and of itself, is sometimes too much for small minds to handle.

    I often remind folks that, in Ohio, you can tape your handgun to your face if that's how you choose to carry it.

    The thigh rig may be silly to some and practical to others. Females with a lot of hip can often draw more quickly from a thigh rig than a holster at belt level. Thigh rigs can also be useful in a vehicle, eliminating the need to transition to and from a car holster.

    The pawn shop would likely have asked the same of any non-police customer, regardless of holster.

    Introducing the new Forehead Holster from Taktikool Products! As a side benefit, men, as your hairline recedes, you can carry larger weapons! Who says getting older has nothing but downsides?

    Or you can go for our new bridge of the nose pistol mount; there it is, ready to fire. Just look at the bad guy and frown really hard.

    [legalese, read very quickly] Not responsible for damage to noses from using large calibers on the pistol mount.

    I want to see that face carry in a picture or video!

    I appreciate your opinion. I had not thought of the positive aspects of a thigh rig like that. At this point in time I can't see wearing one myself as I am so new to carrying that my nerves are on edge and as I have read, the gun is "wearing me," not I wearing it.

    Carry like that, and you'll be the first one shot! That's if some BG doesn't grab the gun from your non-retention face holster first!

    I use a thigh rig when on my way to, during, and on the way home from the range. Plus anywhere else my travels take in the process. Its more comfortable. I use a level 3 Blackhawk on the hip for everything else. Yes I open carry. But a thigh rig would get more MWG calls, in my opinion.

    Well, I've been telling that to people for years.

    I guess I need to put my money where my mouth is, huh?

    Okay.

    My wife, SheWhoSaidYes, suggested a spare mag or iPod holder for the other side of my face.

    If I take all of her suggestions, I may never get all the dang tape off!
