    Unfortunately I live in Lewis County in the Boistfort Valley and we got hit hard this week. My house is concrete (ICF) and built high so my house just missed getting flooded but most other of my neighborswhere not so lucky- houses destroyed, cattle and farm landgoneand people displaced.

    But my point is I open carried the first minute we where out and about helpingpeople who needed it between my home and a few gas stations that where open. Got a few looks of people noticing but no one said a word to me. My first experience with open carry went well and hope to open carry again under normal circumstances

    Coast Guard kicks ass by the way!.

    Glad to hear you had no problems with your house and a good OC experience.

    As a live aboard boater, I second that the CG rocks! The S&R does a difficult job. A customer of mine who is retired CG told me the CG goes out when the Navy won't.

    The exact thing a co-worker of mine who is a retired LTCMDR out of the CG said one time.

    I used to live in Chehalis back in the days of Sheriff Weister. I wouldn't have open carried then.

    I think OC is especially important in emergencies. Every time you help someone it sends a clear message that the people with the GUNS are the good guys.

    Well, thankfully we haven't seen any unconstitutional gun seizures like what happened in New Orleans during Katrina. That made my blood boil.

    I didn't realize at the time but it was a good way to represent OC. I got lots of crap from my friends who came down to help clean up, too bad I can't and will not give the general public the replies I gave them - all in fun. The next thing I need to do is read over the forums to be up on the facts of my legal right to OC if and when someone gives me crap about it.

    I'm in the blue, kinda hard to see my BHP on my right hip.

    Converted it into a mobile home, jury rig style! I sure hope that isn't your car man.
