    Was a great night to OC. Safeway & Hollywood video on 72nd & Pacific, no issue.
    Toys R Us - I decided to buy one of the huge pools(12x20x4) that was on sale this week which ended tonight. While hunting for the price card to take up to the register there was this kid about 8 years old watching me walk back and forth in the aisle. I find the card and make my way to the register. Since it was 15 mins till closing the only cashier was the return counter. As I was standing there the kid and his mom walk up behind me. The kid says to his mom in a loud voice "I want a gun like his mommy!" His mom looks up at me then my hip and eyes as big as saucers. The gal at the register looks up at me and then at my hip while ringing up my purchase as says "cool." I handed mommy a WA Gun Pamphlet as well as the cashier, then waited for my pool to be delivered up front. The kids voice was priceless...... If only mine were that young again.

    Doesn't Indiana allow OC by permit holders, so if you're legal for CC there you're also legal for OC?

    Yes and no as I understand you need a lic to open carry here but my cc

    I don't get it. Are you saying that you need one license to CC, and a different license to OC? That doesn't make any sense at all. Then again, no one ever said that gun laws have to make sense.

    According to the breakdown on the front page map, it would appear that while one may CC with a permit from another state that is recognised with reciprocity (which WA apparently is), one needs a CC permit ISSUED BY INDIANA in order to OC.

    A CC permit to Open Carry. That's political logic for you.

    So it sounds like Indiana issues a LTCF and not a CPL.

    They are anti-gun and no one noticed obviously, which is normal for sheeple. The corp has supportted the Brady Bunch for years and made no secret about it. That's why I don't patronize the place and haven't in years.

    There was no need to call another member "sheeple", Bear. Lay off.

    If you go back and read carefully I was refering to the store employees. And get stuff, you aren't my boss and you don't tell me what to do or say ever.

    Um bear the cashier notices or did I read this wrong. I have had several friend oc and cc in the Tacoma Toys-R-Us with no problems. Maybe it is a corporate policy but it seems as though they let the local store decide if they want to enforce it.

    The part I bolded above, I interpreted as "Toys-R-Us is anti-gun and obviously none of you noticed." If I misinterpreted that, I'm sorry, but I'm sure you can see how I could do so, since the original post mentioned that someone did notice and thus, I thought that was the only logical interpretation. The part after wards about sheeple I then interpreted as being directed towards anyone here that didn't know TRU was anti-gun. Again, a misinterpretation from what you explained.

    As for telling you what to do, I can tell you what to do anytime I like, just like you can do the same. Doesn't mean either of us has to listen or act on it. I was just trying to look out for another member when it appeared (apparently incorrectly) that you were jumping him and calling names with no reason.

    Again, sorry for my misinterpretation, but it would help if you were a little more clear in your posts as to whom you're calling sheeple, so we don't go through this again. I certainly don't like arguing on here; I prefer to keep OCDO-WA as one of the more friendly forums.

    I also apologize. I still recovering from the flu and your response hit me at a down swing in the recovery, been going on for two weeks now. Again sorry I sounded off so nastily. Now I will go and ponder my sins.
