Many years ago I got tired of concealing mouse guns in the high 90's and 100's and after all it was my right (with permit) to open carry in Georgia. Even so, I knew that it wasn't socially accepted yet, so I talked to both the local Sherrif and Cheif of Police. Neither had a problem so I began to open carry when conceal carry was a pain.
My first problems were in my local Walmart with security running up to me, "just to be sure." I also had major problems in our Lowes as they falsely believed that only LE can open carry.
We have two Walmarts and neither one has the legally required sign posting no firearms allowed. The strange thing is that when I began to open carry, there were concerned people everywhere. Now, no one bothers me and many don't even notice that I'm carrying openly. I believe this is due to my state of mind and becoming used to open carry.
Has anyone else noticed such a change as they themselves become used to open carry? Also, what states are the Walmarts in that don't allow firearms, other than LE, on their property? Any store that posts a sign saying that I'm not allowed toprovide for my own protection, is a store that will never get my business.
