I've spent some hours riding my bicycle and other OCing around Springfield over the last few months with very boring results. Nobody seems to notice or care.
A couple of months ago, I decided to Email both Eugene and Springfield Police Departments asking if they're aware OC is legal and what their procedure is for reports of someone carrying a gun. Within a few days, I received a call fromCpt. Lewis in the Springfield PD and discussed Open Carry with him. I let him know about the Open Carry movement and he asked for the web address. He stated that if they get a call they are required to investigate, but he'll make sure and send out a memo to his officers about the Open Carry movement and to let them know they may see an increase in citizens carrying firearms openly. He also suggested to avoid problems I should CC, but recognized it's my choice and right to OC. :celebrate
I've never received any response from Eugene PD, after two Emails. I'm thinking of calling them and asking if their Email is broken.
I've heard from Curtis Greer (GREAT 2nd Amendment supporter and NRA instructor in Springfield) that Eugene can be hazardous to those carrying firearms. He told me of two specific instances in recent years where two people were detained and firearms seized and almost didn't get them back after MWAG calls (1 was carrying concealed and someone saw it, the other was OCing).
Keep up the OCing lazyeye. I'm hoping I'll get to start OCing again soon (right now I can't risk my place to live )
