Wooo... I just found out today that OC was legal, so I researched the laws and put a copy of the summarized Federal Way Police training bulletin on my blackberry, donned my only plaid shirt in an attempt to look like the opposite of a terrorist... Strapped on my Sigarms P226 in my Uncle Mikes thumb-break kydex paddle, spare mag in nylon case, and my blackberry... Time to wait for my girlfriend to get off work... So she gets to my Everett apartment and I tell her my exciting discovery of OC laws. She's a really understanding person, so she agreed to go with me on my trial run to Walmart.
So it's about a quarter of 10 pm, and we get to Walmart (the one in Everett, on hwy 99)... I tried my best not to look stressed or nervous, and smiled a lot. And much to my surprize... nothing happened. It was a great experience.
Then we went to Albertsons in Mukilteo and again, nothing happened. I even stood in line and nobody freaked out or called the cops or anything.
So thanks to all of you who helped me figure this out, and reassured me (even though you didn't know, since I've only been observing this thread)... I don't think I'll carry OC all the time, but only when it's more comfortable to do so.
First time, woot!
