    Well I found this site while I was deployed in the desert (Active duty Air Force) and I told myself that I would OC when I got back to the states. I got back last week and I went out to OC at the local Wallyworld. So with my 1911 in a serpa holster I went and bought a 12 pack of coke and went to the self checkout lane. The cashier there walked by me noticed my 1911 in the holster and walked away then came back and did the same thing. I thought it was obvious as all get up that I was carrying a weapon but no one said a thing. I think she was the only one to notice and didnt care. Very good experience and my next trip I'll walk around a lot more.

    welcome! :celebrate
    ”The great body of our citizens shoot less as times goes on. We should encourage rifle practice among schoolboys, and indeed among all classes, as well as in the military services by every means in our power. Thus, and not otherwise, may we be able to assist in preserving peace in the world… The first step – in the direction of preparation to avert war if possible, and to be fit for war if it should come – is to teach men to shoot!”

    Welcome to the site, I was at Al Udeid AB Qatar when I found out about this site. I got back to the US and have been OC 99.9% of the time. It feels good to Oc don't it?

    It feels great but at the same time I am still a little nervous about peoples reactions to me. I'm not the type to like confrontation, its amazing even though I know its completely legal I feel like I am doing something wrong. It's one thing to carry a M16 around in the desert than to carry a 1911 around here in the states.

    Edit: Funny how society works that way.

    First off, welcome back home to the states, sincerely. To add a bit more to my previous post: Do your best to memorize the statutes pertinent to OC, practice with a bud and have him try to take your gun (30 second intervals[and for god sakes, unloaded, unloaded..]), and do your BEST not to be looking around too much when you OC. lol, i did this for the first couple of months until my buddy told me I looked like i was about to 'pounce' on somebody. hehe.

    Lots of good people on this site (Well, watch out for thoughtpolice, he's got a silver tongue, hehe) We are all here and willing to answer any you have. Even if you think its been asked before, or if its a dumb one: i haven't seen too many people get all anal about the "use the search button!" yet.

    We're here for ya.
