    6/6/06 OCed at the Oriental Gourmet in Arlington. Afterwards walked down the street to the Hollywood Video. I think one of the customers was giving me a dirty look but no problems. Had a couple of Mormon missionarys stop me on the way back to my car, politely declined to hear about Mormonism and went home. No problems.

    just to let you know, you might want to be careful oc'ing in 7-11 or crown gas stations as they are both on several gun owner unfriendly websites, including vcdl. i don't believe i've ever seen it posted on the door to either of them, so i don't think they could really do much about it except ask you to leave, but i figured i would let you know. it's probably one of those where if the manager's there and he doesn't like it then he'll say something, otherwise nothing would be said.

    I appreciate the warning, I was vaguely aware that 7-11 wasn't gun owner friendly but since they don't post I can't say I know what their corporate policy is. I was under the impression that they didn't want their employees armed more than anything else. Anyhow I haven't had any problems yet but getting kicked out doesn't bother me. I have a feeling I could make it embarassing for them if they do. I know Mike Stollenwerk and Philip Van Cleave after all.

    I have OC'd numerous times at 7-11 (Yorktown area) with no comments at all. I'm pretty sure the clerk(s) saw me, though I don't know who the manager is. I've never seen any posting.

    I've OC'd in a couple of 7-11's without a problem. I think most are independently owned.
