    Today we decided to go up to Draper UT to do some shopping and visit our favorite Mexican restaurant (guatalahonkys sp?). After much convincing for my wife i decided it was time to get my feet wet with open carry. It started of going into Petco. I got a few glances but nothing was said. After that we ate dinner at the restaurant. No one said anything. I could see people who noticed but nobody called 911 saying man with gun. Before heading back to American Fork we walked through a furniture store. No swat yet. I think my wife was convinced we would be kicked out or arrested. I assured her we weren't breaking any laws. Before heading home we made one last stop at the AF walmart. I have read another's experience of being harassed by an asset protection person. I passed one while in the store. Not one thing was said. We walked around shopping for at least an hour. I figured i was sure to meet some resistance. But we didn't. As we left walmart i turned to my wife saying "no swat!".

    As far as dress i was wearing blue jeans, OD green ARMY shirt and a cabelas ball cap complete with fish hook.

    Just thought I would share my experience. On Monday I will be heading in to Costco. I seem to remember somone who works there wanting someone to head in there to see how his mgment reacts.
