    My business takes me all over the Northwest. I alternate between
    open and concealed carry based on my gut feeling. Have OCed at
    Troutdale Flying J, Biggs Junction and Umatilla Oregon as well as
    Holiday in Spokane WA.
    Was in the Flying J in Lewiston Idaho the other night about nine
    or ten at night and had someone take issue with my carry. It wasn't
    the clerk but rather a customer, who, as he was standing in front of
    me noticed. After he paid he said "you must be a police officer" I
    said no, it's legal for everyone in Idaho. He then asked if I
    considered that concealed. It wasn't at all so I replied no. He had
    walked out by that point. As I finished paying the clerk said she
    hadn't even notice until I came to the front. She then said she
    didn't think I was going to do anything. I said no ma'am I would not.
    She thanked me and hoped to see me again.
    So not everyone in Idaho is up to speed on OC but it went well
    enough. I was tired from a day of driving or I would have referred
    this site orPNW OCto my inquisitor.
    Just wanted to pass along my experiences, and say I am working to
    bring people around to the acceptance of OC.

    So not everyone in Idaho is up to speed on OC
    That is one of the main reasons for open carry.

    FYI Rest areas in Montana are government property. You can carry all you want outside but if you step in to use the bathroom you are now breaking the law.

    That is not correct. Montana prohibits concealed carry into government buildings. Open carry is legal.
