    From what I've gathered by lurking around and studying, for my own knowledge and desire to OC, these are some of the things a person should have, do, and expect.

    PLEASE add to the list as you see necessary.

    -------------------------------------------

    -Know your rights and the law
    -Expect to be confronted by LEOs and various people
    -Do not expect LEOs or various people to know the law
    -Make sure that the law is followed
    -Press charges on those that break the law and/or violate your rights.
    -DONT MAKE OCers LOOK BAD...in this day & age politicians, law makers, and many others in power want to have YOU under their control, exercise your rights to the fullest but do not abuse them. Its not a matter of political preference anymore, very few politicians respect the law, the Constitution, or the citizens.

    ----------------------------------------------

    Thats what I have so far...help me out.

    I've never seen any non-LEO open carry in Louisiana. I don't know, maybe I've been living in a box. It's something I wanna try, but people are so touchy I could imagine scaring almost everyone who walks by and getting crazy looks from everyone else. I would be especially worried about cops. I didn't even know about the legality of open carry until I took my class for CCW. I'm in BR by the way.

    Thanks for the welcome. Yeah I guess it would be cool to hang out with some open carry guys. I don t have any friends who carry though, concealed or otherwise. Maybe if some forum members got together and went out. I might feel out of place though. I get the feeling that most of you are older than me. It s probably just that the internet is severely lacking in maturity.

    I'm a fairly busy guy. Most of the time, I'm working until late at night (I'm a nurse). I wouldn't mind getting together when I'm off though.



    Although trying to work around a nurse's schedule is gonna be pretty hard.

    A big howdy from Slidell. I do ocassionally get to the BR area, and would absolutely love to go OC'ing with those of you interested. Is there a range or something to use as an excuse to go to BR. I could always tell the wife I need to do some shopping(JIM's)!



    On the same note, If any of you want to come down to Slidell, our LEO's need some educating also.

    There are indoor ranges in either Slidell or BR if that is what we were going to do.

    Might be nice to just have lunch and hang out a bit.

    Hammond has no range, but does have resturants and is 40-45 miles from both.

    I don't know about Gonzales after your experiences there Mark.

    Whatever y'all would like, I may come if I have the time when you schedule it.

    If we wanted to hit the range in BR there's Precision right down the street from Jim's. I go there all the time.

    I wont be shooting at precision. Ever.

    The first (and last) time I was there, I was struck by two of my own bullets. The hit the backstop and flew right back at me. One hit me in the right shoulder, the other hit me in the left upper chest.

    Both left one HELL of a bruise.

    WOW! What happened after you got hit? I said I go there all the time but I haven't been in a minute. Not since they changed management. They at least used to be awesome.

    I packed up all my stuff, walked out of the range, showed the manager the bruises, and told him I would never be back.

    I shoot at Sherburne WMA. I take at least one trip there a week. You head up 190 (airline) towards opelousas, turn before the big bridge right before Krotz Springs.

    I do a fair amount of rabbit hunting there with my Ruger 22/45 pistol with ironsights. Keeps me sharp

    Its been a while since I've checked this board, hehe.

    I've been open carrying a lot though...its been great, actually.

    I Open Carry at:
    Walmart
    Target
    Whole Foods
    Mall of Louisiana
    Barnes & Noble
    ...etc.

    So far I've simply had to educate a few ladies at the jewelery counter in Walmart, and I get glares from Un-Armed security guards at Target.

    Un-Armed security...I know its a job, but...I turn down jobs where I have to handle criminals if I cant carry a firearm. Thats just silly & dangerous..."unarmed security."

    But its not me.

    Have we just forgotten about planning an open carry outing? I made my first serious step toward open carry thursday. I went to Jim's and bought a Blackhawk Level 2 Serpa Auto Lock. I didn't carry that day cause my next and last stop was Buffalo Wild Wings. I haven't carried yet cause all I do is go to work except on off days. Come tuesday I'm carrying everywhere I can.:celebrate
