    Last night I openly carried in a WalMart and PetSmart in Winston-Salem. WalMart was extremely crowded.

    I encountered no questions or complaints whatsoever.

    Cool! I have open carried a little in Raleigh, Winston-Salem and Greensboro.

    No problems yet, but I don't go there as much anymore as I once did.

    I got pulled over by a police officer while I was towing a U-Haul behind my car at night. The police officer had noticed that the door on the U-Haul had opened up as I failed to securely lock it. I was openly carrying and the officer made the comment that I had a "nice firearm".

    No arrest or negative comments. Just a helpful officer who saved my possessions from getting scattered on the roadway.

    Geez, I wish Michigan was a bit more accepting of Open carry. If I did that here, I'd likely find my self hands on the car, getting patted down, then waiting for backup so they could search my car too.

    Oh well.

    Cool I open carried in (winston-salem) walmart today (first time OC)

    Earlier today i was planning to go to PRO shots in rural hall so i geared up and open carried my ruger p94 in walmart. i encounter alot of NOSY FOLKS that 1 glance is not enough but they even follow me up the Sporting Goods. theres was quite a shopper in walmart today.. couple of mexican family even say it out loud.. " HE HAS A GUN " i feel like i was violating something lol but i know its my rights and i guess to let more FOLKS know that in the behalf of other people that open carries i will be AN EXAMPLE of a Responsible open carrier.. i do think that being well groomed and well dressed makes ALOT of difference when it come to PUBLIC opinion and reaction on them.. GOD BLESS YOU GUYS!! keep safe..

    I live in Hendersonville and have gone to Asheville a ton. With the exception of armed security guards, LEO's, and armored truck workers I have NEVER seen anyone open carry.
