    I am watching it right now and it looks interesting. Lets see how they spin the segment.

    UPDATE: Ok, it wasnt that interesting of a segment, but opencarry.org got alot of press. I thought it was interesting when the police in the area had no comment. Overall it was neutral.

    just watched it. although the reporter seemed to try to dramatize and sensationalize it, it ended up being a reassuring, non-eventful, and comforting piece, especially to those who don't OC. Mr. Pierce was very well spoken and did a great job of answering all the reporter's questions. makes me want to OC more now.

    along that line, anyone know a place in the south sound where i can buy a Serpa in person at a brick and mortar store?

    And at least he tried to get all the sides of the story by calling the local police station. Maybe a few quips by passer by's would have been good.

    That picnic looks really fun.

    Bobby, check out Larry's Gun Shop in Olympia. It's under new management and one of the new owners, Jeff, is a member here and I imagine he'd be happy to help you get more secure with your OC through a better-retention holster.

    On those whole, it was a positive piece but did include classic elements of mild gotcha journalism (i.e., pick out one of the participants of color - his related story of a contact was solid in defense of the issues of open carry and color). However, applause for the picnic folks whole kept things calm, holstered and positive. I firmly believe that they were there to mock the crowd but came away with something less than what they wanted. In other words, normal folks, no yahoos, across the spectrum types and a PD wise enough to keep its yap shut.

    Not sure if it's closer to you than Olympia, but LEEDS on 6th Ave in Tacoma tends to stock a decent variety of SERPA's.

    If Leeds doesn't have it check Bullseye, 414 Puyallup Ave. They had Serpa holsters when I was last there.

    Did you check with LEEDs as he is an authorized dealer and repair station for H&K and generally has everything for them.
