    So Amanda and I had to get some prescriptions filled,and decided to take a break from cleaning the house and get it done. We head down to our local Col. Heights 24 Hour CVS. Of course I'm carrying my CZ40P in a Fobus paddle holster. Amanda had the Kel-tec p3at in a bianchi thumb-break. So the pharmasist, very polite and chatty even walked from behind her counter to show me the restroom. The other young lady that was working there, kept staring at me,and acting extremely sketchy. Coming out of the bathroom I saw her holding a phone and she ducked quickly out of view when I looked up and saw her. We got a page saying our prescription was done,walked over and got it, I noticed a different face, his name tag saying "shift supervisor". Hadn't seen him AT ALL,and you have to walk through the entire store to the pharmacy. Turn around to leave,and theres an officer standing in the magazine aisle with a magazine staring at me,I walk by and very pursposely make eye contact with sketchy girl,and say HAVE A GREAT NIGHT. There was another LEO in his car outside. They didn't stop us or anything, but I did think it was funny.


    Sorry for the long post and bad grammer.

    EDIT: MODS CAN YOU PLEASE FIX THE TITLE? IT SHOULD READ "HAD THE COPS CALLED ON US"

    Glad to hear it ended well. At least the LEO's knew the law and did not bother you about it.

    It does seem a little odd for one to be out in the car. I think they were called and one came inside to check you out.

    People do rob those counters for the good drugs so they had a right to feel scared. Having said that.... you were "valid customers" and I have not known any criminals that waited to havescript to be filled and then rob the counter for some oxy too.

    The LEO must have known the law and saw you did nothing wrong. he did was was required and allowed you to be on your way without stopping you.

    Good job LEO!

    Wow! Sure beats my experience at a CVS in Short Pump in March of 2006 (I was detained, disarmed, spread eagle, searched, then treated rudely... later, the officer was disciplined by Internal Affairs and the Commonwealths Attorney).

    It seemsthe officers knew the law and acted responsibly in balancing your rights with the fact that drug stores are especially tempting targets for robbery...

    Glad it ended well and the LEO did not engage. Simply observing a subject and assessing the circumstances can be enough to figure out what one needs to figure out.

    Tomahawk will say it and so will I...the ignorant citizens that call are the people that tick me off. It's an irrational fear of an inanimate object. Since when does a criminal walk into a pharmacy with an openly carried holstered sidearm and wait for their prescription to be filled before committing their robbery?

    This is a very insightful analysis.

    Tremendously better than that of the OP.



    P.S. I remember your encounter, SST. The LEOs treated you BAD. And you handled the post-event complaint stuff very effectively. Kudos to you again.

    It was scary for me b/c I've never even walked by a LEO while OCing. But I was very impressed by the officers,seeing as they didn't stop me when I was breaking no law. My first reaction was my heart started beating really fast,but then I got the car ,and Amanda and I just looked at each other and started laughing so hard:P

    You'll get used to it.

    Just wait until you get pulled over coming back from the range, with a bunch of recently fired guns, and your buddy is smoking menthols.
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    I HEAR YOU! My heart started pounding when I saw the officer as well... then he started coming straight at me with a nasty look on his face!! Turns out, my officer was at the CVS for personal reasons, no one had called him (although a Henrico PD Captain was caught lying to Philip Van Cleave when he claimed the officer was responding to a citizen call). I was with my two best friends and it was my BIRTHDAY! They had open carried with me before (although they weren't that night), and they were shocked as well.... it helped that I hadtwo other, law-abiding witnesses who were upstanding citizens with me.... they were also interviewed (on tape) about the incident....
