    Idaho is boring

    Everyday I open carry here in the Boise area, going about my business and nothing happens. I mean that no one says anything negative about my firearm, the police are not called, I'm not asked to leave the store, its just plain boring. I LOVE BORING!

    To each his suff'rings: all are men,
    Condemn'd alike to groan,
    The tender for another's pain;
    Th' unfeeling for his own.
    Yet ah! why should they know their fate?
    Since sorrow never comes too late,
    And happiness too swiftly flies.
    Thought would destroy their paradise.
    No more; where ignorance is bliss,
    'Tis folly to be wise.

    (Thomas Gray, Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College (1742), St. 10.)

    I carry all over Idaho also, over the last 5-6 years I have had only two negative encounters.

    1. Nampa Bowling alley.....was there for an hour before they noticed and asked me to put it in my car. I said I would just leave and have never gone back.

    2. Denny's by the airport about 1 am, a guy asked me why I needed a gun? He wasn't from Idaho he was driving back to Portland in his subaru to go hug a tree.

    Other than that most people in Idaho I have run across are armed also they just CC.

    I used to carry a glock 17, but it was just to heavy to be comfortable for daily carry. I have a Bersa thunder 380 for my daily carry now and at 22 oz loaded its much more pleasant.

    Glad to hear that your experiences have been mostly boring. I would call only two negative encounters in 5 to 6 years a success.

    Unlike here on Colorado's western slope. Last summer the wife and I would hit the weekly farmers market (me OCing) and I couldn't get through it without at least 1 person stopping me............ to thank me for carrying

    I am house hunting in North Idaho, we looked at 4 different houses last week, everyone of them had a gun safe, 3 of them had what appeared to be loaded pistols in plain sight. My favorite was the Ruger Redhawk hanging on the headboard in a cowboy style holster.

    I have OCed all over Idaho with out incident for years boring is good.
    Throw me to the wolves and I will come back leading the pack.

    This makes me laugh, while I'm not a glock person I will say evena Glock or the High-Point would look nice if it was being used to save an innocents life.

    The only place I have been kicked out of was a Cowboy Fast Draw contest in Idaho City. I was sitting in the bleachers as a spectator and one of the Idaho City club members to me I couldn't have my loaded gun there. He freaked out and nearly fell over leaving when he saw it was in condition 1.

    Now that would have been priceless to see!

    Is there any other condition to carry in?

    Maroon (/məruːn/ mə-ROON or /məroʊn/ mə-RONE) is a dark brownish red color[2] which takes its name from the French word marron, or chestnut.[3] The Oxford English Dictionary describes it as "a brownish crimson or claret color.

    Condition Brownish? LOL!
