Good to hear. Please keep us posted on further encounters.
In an older thread in this section, there was an anecdote about a Colorado park ranger who was an open carry fan.The gist of the story was that she had to use her LEO credentials a couple of times(to avoid hassle by Aurora Police)because the Aurora Police apparently have unofficial orders to discourage open carry to the max. She was quoted as having said if she were a nonLEO she wouldn't open carry in Aurora or Denver, but would do so anywhere else.
I live in Aurora too, so I am particularly interested in learning whether your experiences in Aurora confirm her view.
