    w00t. I know I don't have to be 21 to OC,but federal law says I have to be 21 to purchase ammo. Carrying unloaded CZ=not happening. This morning I hit the chester walmart at around 9:15 AM with my CZ in my Fobus RU97 holster, walked straight to sporting goods,and bought two boxes of .40S&W ammo. It was great! I ended up going up to take my fiancee lunch, breezed right into her new job, met some of her coworkers,etc. First thing I did when I got the ammo was load it up. Since my CZ is a decocker, I was carrying one in the chamber, de-cocked. At first it wasn't easy. I ended up doing an impromtu trip to the gun store on the same street as my fiancces work,and came home with a Kel-tec p3at! When I was in walmart I didn't really get any weird looks, the guy behind the sporting goods counter kept almost glancing at it, but diverted his eyes,like he was fighting a stare. When I got the gunstore, my CZ pulled the usual attention of "whoa what kind of CZ is that" ...."I didnt know CZ made a .40.."

    Did you get NACHOS!? :celebrate
    Actually we need a tradition for first OC. I suggest Fuddruckers (hamburgers) since I think many here OC'd there first at a post VCDL fellowship (I did at least).

    My first OC experience was at Captian D's in the City of Manassas. Maybe the tradition should be fried fish.

    Well a tradition implies it is something that many practice. Nothing wrong with fried fish and hush puppies, I'm just saying I often suggest going to a VCDL meeting to break into the OC lifestyle and Fuddruckers is a part of that.

    I didn't need a VCDL or OCDO outing to convince me to OC for the first time either


    All joking aside, though, a VCDL or OCDO outing is a great place for a virgin OC'er

    Personally, I think the noob ought to buy ammo all around. A group trip to the store - think of the looks we'd get! :shock:

    stay safe.

    +2 Welcome to the club.

    My first time wasn't at or after a VCDL meeting, but I did OC after my first VCDL meeting with a bunch of you fun loving amendment fighters at Fudruckers!
