    My first time ever OC'ing period. Had a few things to get done today so thought I would give it a try.

    First place was Kinkos to fax something. A few people in the store, but I dont think anyone even looked at me. No interactions.

    Second place was to get an oil change. 5 mins into my oil change a police officer enters the building in uniform.Igive her a smile and she does the same. My holster was onmy right while she was on my left. I don't thinkshesaw it. She was there to pickup a car.I didhave two interactions there. Onewith a guy who'd just moved from PA. His daughter was moving out here and he's buying her a pistol and wanted to know how she could get a permit.The second person was an employee. He asked if I was an officer, I politely replied that I was just a regular Joe. He asked if I had a permit, I informed him that the great state of Colorado allowslaw abiding citizens to OC without one. Turns out he was a felon, and asked me if he would be excluded from carrying.I suggested getting a more qualified opinion.

    For a first experience everit was positive. Being new to northern CO it's encouraging. Generally I think people are more curious than afraid. I'll continue to OC occasionally to increase my comfort with it.

    Well done on the OC!
    So a felon asked you about it?!?!? LMAO!!
    As far as that goes, you can only OC or CC (with permit of course) if you are only legally allowed to own a gun. Felons are not even allowed to own them or have them in their possession as far as I know. Did he mention what the felony charge was?
    If that would have been me on my first OC, I probably would have dropped a log in my shorts when the LEO arrived! LOL

    He mentioned it was "receiving stolen property".I knew that he wasn't able to carry (or legally own) a firearm, but as nice as he was to me I didn't want to poop on his day. It's funny how open people are sometimes. Just goes to show you that felons of all types are out in the populace ... or at least 50% of the people I interact with.

    When the cop walked in I thought, "damn they got here fast"
